Today, I’m going to be telling you all about my brand new WIP!Read More »


The Spring Cleaning Tag!

good morning, cyberspace!

I feel like today’s a let’s-do-a-tag kind-of-day. And what better tag to do on a beautiful May day than the Spring Cleaning Tag? It has Spring. It has cleaning. I think it has something to do with writing. And also it gives a section for organizing your writing goals, which is something that I’ve been seriously wanting to talk about for quite a while now, so this tag sounds like perfection, yes?

Of course it does. Let’s dive right in!Read More »

The Star Wars Character Tag!

good morning, cyberspace!

About three million years ago, I was tagged by Penny from over at A Southern Belle With Stories To Tell (is that not the most amazing blog name ever, or what???) for her very own tag–The Star Wars Character Tag!

Now, I had intended to do this tag a lot sooner than I am–because it’s STAR WARS and CHARACTERS and WRITING all jumbled up into one thing???? what’s not to love about this????–but, as always, life decided to get in the way and crush all my bloggerly hopes and dreams. But I’m here now, so hopefully that makes my tardiness acceptable.


probably not.Read More »

Six Ways To Find The Story Idea You’ve Always Wanted (hopefully)

good morning, cyberspace!

Recently, my brother–a fellow creative currently working on his own creative endeavors–came up to me and asked a very deep, very powerful question:

“How do you come up with ideas?”Read More »

The Fairy Tale Central Blog Tour! // ft. a smol rant from me about why I love fairy tales so much

good morning, cyberspace!

GUYS! I am so beyond thrilled to be able to be a part of the lovely blog tour (the first blog tour I’ve ever been a part of, actually. . . AHAHAHAHAHAHAHELPME) for the SUPER exciting new website run by Arielle, Faith, and Christine*–Fairy Tale Central! This is just my little intro to let you all know that I’m jumping on the blog tour bandwagon, but the actual post–*points down*–will tell you all you need to know about the new site, give links to its social media accounts, and all that exciting jazz that you’re actually interested in reading.

But first, I’d love to take just a few moments of your time to add a couple of my own thoughts to this post. Because WHY NOT, am I right???? Aha. Hahahahaha. *nervous laughter intensifies*Read More »

Project Inspire!

good morning, cyberspace!

i am so beyond excited for today’s smudge, guys, oh my word

Just recently, Kinsey mentioned me in her post for Project Inspire (and it seriously made my day, just sayin’), and after reading through her post, I realized that this was a tag/project that I really wanted to participate in.

As the creator of the tag–Jenna Terese–said in the original Project Inspire post, this is less of a tag, and more of “. . .an opportunity to take part in a mission to appreciate, inspire, encourage, and simply spread love to writers everywhere.”Read More »

WIP IT! Chapter Zero: The Beginning of An End

good morning, cyberspace!

This post was supposed to come out on Saturday. Today is not Saturday.


Ahem. As I mentioned briefly in my last post, I have some VERY exciting news to share with you all today!!! And while I’m sure most of you already have an inkling as to what this news is, I’m just going to pretend like you have absolutely no clue. Because that is clearly more fun.Read More »

The Get To Know Me Tag 2.0!

good morning, cyberspace!

Way back in July of 2018, I posted my answers for the Get To Know Me Tag (WRITER’S EDITION). Now, nine months later, I’ve been tagged yet again by the lovely Phoebe from over at So It Is (Re)Written to do this tag a second time! And since so much time has passed between now and then, I thought it’d be really fun to see how much my answers have changed–or . . . not changed?–since the last time I did this tag.

Which is why, today, I’m going to be doing the Get To Know Me Tag 2.0!

. . .in which the questions are literally the same as the last time. Aha. I also think I’m stealing the whole 2.0 thing from Phoebe, but SHHHHHH it’s fine. She won’t mind.

please don’t mind.

Anyway, without any further ado, let’s dive into the tag!Read More »

Rapunzel, Rapunzel // a poem

good morning, cyberspace!

Just two days ago I emerged from my completely unexpected February half-hiatus with a brief recap of all things February Freeze Out. And I’d been debating whether or not I should post that smudge on Sunday, seeing as though Tuesday was only a couple days out, but in my excitement to finally be posting again, I refused to listen to the logic of long-term and posted it immediately.

Which left me with virtually nothing to post today.

However, luckily for me, I had another poem lodge itself into my brain last weekend and demand I write it, which means i don’t have to expend any time or energy into writing a really complicated blog post I get to share another fun little piece of randomness with you all!Read More »

Goodnight, February! Good Morning, March! (feat. all things February Freeze Out, where I ran off to, and a bunch of other random stuff)

EDIT NOTE: I was so excited to actually be posting something for once that I completely forgot to add in some asterisk notes I’d planned on including. SO I’VE FIXED IT. MWAHAHAHAHA.


good morning, cyberspace!

It’s March, peasants! WOOT WOOT! I . . . honestly don’t know where February went. It seems like just a week ago that I was squealing and squawking about February Freeze Out, and now . . . it’s over.

And I hardly posted anything at all about it. AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

. . .

Actually, scratch that. I literally posted nothing about it. My plan for the month was to do two posts a week–one normal post, one February Freeze Out update post–and, as I’m sure you can all clearly see, that did not happen. Like at all. I didn’t even manage to give daily updates on my Twitter feed like I had planned, which means that on the updating front of this challenge, I failed most miserably.

On the actual doing of the February Freeze Out challenge, however. . .

Yeah, I also failed that, too. But now that it’s March, I have NEWS! and UPDATES! and MORE NEWS! about anything and everything February-ish, so let’s just get this over with, shall we?Read More »
