THE WRITER’S OTP CHALLENGE!: in which I squeal like an insane grandma about my precious children

GOOD MORNING, CYBERSPACE!

If you couldn’t tell by now, I’m a sucker for writing challenges and tags. There’s just something simple and easy about answering questions, and when you’re in a tight pinch for a blog post, they are quite literally a heaven-sent.

So when I saw a writerly challenge over on Faith’s blog (which you should totally check out if you haven’t already!!!!) I just knew I had to participate.

Now, I THINK this was supposed to be done in the month of February (it was created by the fairy godmothers of Fairy Tale Central as a February Instagram challenge, and was later posted to the blogosphere for us peeps who aren’t as acclimated with Insta), but I digress. It is March, and we are doing it anyway. #tinyrebellions

Also! You might have noticed that this is a writer’s OTP challenge. This means I’m going to be talking about the romantic ships locked within my own story pages. This, as you can probably tell, is going to be exceedingly awkward for me.

Please ignore everything I am about to say, because–as I have mentioned multiple times on this blog and literally everywhere else–I DON’T WRITE ROMANCE.

Let’s continue onwards, shall we?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.

PRETEND IT’S SATURDAY, PEASANTS.

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 »

good morning, cyberspace!

Guys. FriendsI think there are some things we need to talk about.

Say, for instance, this blog. And also how terrible I’ve been at running it lately.

I know, I know, you’ve probably seen this coming for a while now. What with my posts becoming fewer and farther between, and the content being somewhat. . .undesirable, I think it’s safe to assume that we all knew this had to happen eventually.

We all knew it had to come to an end.

So after much debate — and after countless tears, I can assure you — I have been forced to make one of the hardest decisions of my life.Read More »

Happy Blogiversary, Cyberspace!!!!

ASDFGHJKLASDFGHJKLASDFGHJKL!!! I can’t even believe it! Today marks the TWO YEAR ANNIVERSARY!!! for this wee little blog. . .! TWO. YEARS. I just. . .it doesn’t feel real, my friends. Two years ago, I created a blog. Me. The girl who finishes absolutely nothing has kept a blog somewhat running for two entire years.

Let’s Talk About Life, Yeah?

good morning, Cyberspace,

and welcome back to yet another episode of Kenzie Waits Until Monday To Write Her Weekly Blog Post! WOOT WOOT!

You’d think that after nearly two years of blogging I’d figure out that there are actually seven days of a typical week, and therefore I could potentially utilize some of those days for blogging. But no. Nope, I prefer waiting until the very last minute, because apparently I’m still holding out hope that Armageddon is nigh and the world will spontaneously implode before Tuesday morning.

So here I am again, trying to figure out what to write for tomorrow’s post, and all I can think about is the fact that I should really be working on my novel. Because I love my novel. And I want to be a full-time novelist, not a full-time blogger, (although admittedly that would be kinda fun? if only I didn’t have a thousand and one story ideas bubbling in my brain…) which means that, in order to achieve that ultimate goal, I actually need to work on my novel.

*brain implodes*

I know, right? WHO WOULDA THUNK.

But alas, it is true. And so in order to chunk out some time for me to spend in the world of everlost today (yesterday? I’m writing this on Monday, so….?), I’m going to be doing a simple post this week. A happy little post. A post about life.

Or rather, a post about MY life. Because my life is totally cool and hip and not at all boring.

#lies

So even though I loathe writing update posts (pretty sure we’ve been over this about ten times already…) there are some Things that have happened/will happen that I kind of want to talk to you guys about. So.

Here we go again.Read More »

everlost.

good morning, cyberspace

and yadda yadda yadda —

I FINISHED EVERLOST.

As of 3:11 pm on April 9th, everlost’s second draft is complete.

BOOM.

*vultures exploding*

*pitchforks dancing*

*babies screaming*

*one kenzie dying*

I know. I know. This is shocking. You’re shocked. That vulture is shocked. I am currently in a state of severe shock that is prohibiting wordly things from coming out of my mouth holes and fingers.

BASICALLY WE’RE ALL OF THE SHOCKED, YES?

I don’t even know where to begin explaining this. My brain feels like a fried maggot meatloaf. I am a burning marshmallow. The world is my oyster.

words no longer exist for me.Read More »

March Hare Madness! – Week Two: Hatchdays and Time Change and Writing, OH MY!

good afternoon, cyberspace!

And welcome to Week Two of March Hare Madness! As it happens, I completely forgot to write this blog post over the course of the weekend/Monday like I normally do, and am now sitting at the computer, trying to hash this out on Tuesday morning/afternoon.

Right before this smudge is supposed to be uploaded. So. Be prepared for mass amounts of typos and awful sentence structures, peasants.

But anyway, enough dilly-dallying. We’ve got a lot of ground to cover in regards to all of the wonders that have happened this past week, so let’s dive straight into the smudge, okay? Okay.Read More »

March-Hare Madness! – Week One: The Humble Beginnings (feat. the cast of everlost)

good afternoon, cyberspace!

And welcome to Week One of the glory that is March Hare Madness!!! I am honestly SO excited to share this whole experience with all of you (and have even recruited some of you to join me??? whaaaaaaat…?) and cannot wait to begin.

So let’s jump right into all of the action, shall we?Read More »

March-Hare Madness! – An Announcement

good morning, cyberspace!

has anyone else ever noticed that I NEVER post these things in the morning anymore . . .? no? just me?

ANYWAY. I’ve got a bit of an unusual post for all of you today, (because there’s such a thing as usual posts around here. i swear. they totally exist.) and though I absolutely DESPISE writing update posts (#BORING), today I am making an exception.

A very rare exception, mind you. This shall never happen again. (lies)

HOWEVER, despite my supreme disgust and boredom of writing update posts, there happens to be something BIG shifting within my writerly stars this next month — something that I’m really, really excited about sharing with you all.

And no. I am not getting published. That kind of a shift would rip gargantuan wormholes through the fabric of the space-time continuum, my friends.

Instead, today, I am going to be sharing with you a little project that I’m about to put into motion. Or, should I say, a big project.

Because it’s big.

It’s huge
