Now I’m a full-time author.
“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.” - Leo Tolstoy Ladies and gents, this one is short and sweet. Since my last blog post, when I shared the story of when everything went all topsy-turvy, I have struggled to think of what to do next. I looked to my … Continue reading Changing Course
I was super proud of myself at the beginning of this year. I had just come off an amazing year of blogging in 2018.

Friday I tweeted out a list of … Continue reading Self-Care Sunday: Your Guess Is As Good As Mine
I am my own muse; I am the subject I know best. The subject I want to know better. -Frida Kahlo Earlier today I tweeted a little about my Sunday: So yesterday was kinda crazy. We redecorated our bedroom and since it’s more spring-like than wintery in SC, we did our spring cleaning. But I … Continue reading Helpful Nonfiction for Writers
Hello, loves. It's the week of Valentine's Day, so of course I have to do an obligatory romance-centric post! Though I do not write romance, I do occasionally read romance, and I watch romantic movies, and over the years I've come to really, really love some common tropes and despise others. Aren't All Tropes Bad? Um, no. … Continue reading Romance Tropes I Love And Some I…Don’t
Good morning and welcome to February! When I was trolling through Canva looking for an image for my review post title card, this one struck me as a far more accurate picture of what working towards goals feels like for me.
