Comparison can turn friends into adversaries. -Frank Sonnenberg Morning, lovelies! Hopefully you're having a lovely day and great start to your week. I'll be honest, my weekend and my Monday were rough. I had a pretty gnarly headache. Not a migraine, thankfully, but this nagging pain going right across the back of my skull and … Continue reading The Comparison Game
Oh, crap. I quit my job. Now I’m a full-time author.
“The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can't be any large-scale revolution until there's a personal revolution, on … Continue reading Oh, crap. I quit my job. Now I’m a full-time author.
Operation: Digital Declutter
Hi, I'm Aila. And I have a problem. Today's scheduled blog post was supposed to be about my other hobby: Weaving. You know, those big pretty things people sometimes hang on their wall? Yeah, I enjoy making them. But I'm home sick today (yesterday for you) and I don't feel like setting up the photography … Continue reading Operation: Digital Declutter
Posts Revisited: Writing Sucks
Happy Monday, one and all! Here in South Carolina we are gearing up for Hurricane Florence. It's supposed to be a doozy, though I'm getting conflicting reports on what to truly expect. Some say it'll hit SC directly, some say it should hit closer to North Carolina. Either way, we're looking at some craptastic weather … Continue reading Posts Revisited: Writing Sucks

Posts Revisited: What’s In A Name?
Good evening! I thought I'd revisit some of my older posts and see if my thoughts, processes, ideas, etc. have changed since I began this blog. What better way to start this mini-series than to start with my very first post! What's In A Name was published on December 13, 2015—almost three years ago! Let's get … Continue reading Posts Revisited: What’s In A Name?
Happy Monday! So, I'd like to just dive straight into my topic for the day: Refocusing. If you'll recall from my post last week, I mentioned I only had roughly 10k words left in Alabama Rain before it would be finished. Now, 10k words normally only takes me two, three days tops to bang … Continue reading Refocusing
Q2: How’d I do?
Hey, good lookin'! Happy Thursday! So, it's officially summer now. For you that might mean lounging by the pool, a cool drink in your hand—or maybe on the beach, stretched out on the sand, watching the waves and working on your tan. If that's you, then you should really check out this giveaway my friend … Continue reading Q2: How’d I do?

Without further adieu, let's see what KT has to say! The Advantages of Word of Mouth: … Continue reading Guest Post: Word of Mouth
As I'm nearing the completion of Alabama Rain, my mind is drifting to the three-ring circus that is the book launch. And it is a three-ring circus! First and foremost, let's get one thing straight: This is not an advice post. I'd love for this to turn into a discussion, so please flood me with comments. … Continue reading Book Launches
