Routines and Writing / NaNoWriMo 2018

NaNoWriMo prep is in the air, and the closer we get to November the less I know what to do. On one hand, I love the thought of the challenge. Writing 50,000 words in one month; starting a new novel and literally writing the whole thing in thirty days. Ooh, I get excited thinking about […]

Words Formed

Today feels like spring. Sunny, breezy, and like many things could get done without rush, as did yesterday. And things have been done; writing, exercising, baking, laundry. Speaking of writing, which I speak of often, sometimes I wonder how many people out there write without anyone else knowing. I think a lot of people do. […]

August Audiobooks

A cup of tea in the morning sun and I’m ready to blog. I’ve been really into audiobooks lately, for the first time ever. I don’t know why, but even though I’ve loved podcasts for the last few years, the thought of listening to an audiobook never really spoke to me. (Ha. Spoke to me.) […]

Been Reading

I love books and reading, but I rarely talk about them specifically, so here we are this evening! I thought I’d share five books: the two books I’m currently reading, and the last three I’ve read. Currently Reading Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte I thought I’d mention Wuthering Heights first because we all know I […]

July Diary / Camp NaNo 2018

I finished Camp NaNoWriMo tonight (hoorah!), so I’m posting this summary of each day. Each night since the first of July I wrote a little entry on how my editing and writing went that day, to give you an inside taste of how I spent my time. I also have a post from last Camp […]

Good Morning

It’s time for a blog post. Let me hear your cheers of joy. Can cheers be anything but joyful? Can cheers be sad? (I just looked up the definition and a cheer is a shout of joy, so there you go.) (Look at me, caring for your education/not wanting to lead you astray.) It’s lunch […]

Weekly

I have a cup of tea and it’s been a while. Less than a week, feels like eternity. I have numerous ideas for blog posts, but none of them feel right and I simply don’t have the energy to try and make them right. With this in mind, I’ve decided that the way to go […]

Ready To Go / Camp NaNo 2018

It’s Camp NaNoWriMo once more! Held every April and July, it’s the build toward November, which is National Novel Writing Month. Keen as. If you remember, I wrote about Camp NaNoWriMo throughout April. (I explain what it is here and talk about my experience here.) Being the 29th of June (can you believe it?), tomorrow […]

One Story, Two Story

I feel like blogging but the only thing to blog about right now is the weather and tea and driving through the fog into the sunshine. In some ways this is a nice place to be because life is simple and enjoyable and each day holds stability. But in another way how many times can […]

Ordinary (But Not)

I wake up and journal, eat breakfast and get ready for the day. I drive to work with good music playing and navigate through the fog, brace myself to face the cold for twenty seconds while I walk into the office. I work and drink tea and stand by the heater, but mostly work. I […]
