I love Halloween. I love Pumpkins. I absolutely love pumpkins more than Halloween. Recently my boyfriend and I adopted a little girl husky. I say little, but she's almost 50lbs, so she's not that little (sorry for those who don't use our weight system, but I'm way too lazy this morning to convert it for … Continue reading WIPpet Wednesday!!

It has honestly surprised me how many times I have seen this one mixed up. I'm not sure if it's because of just random typos, but it does seem to happen more than it should. Patients are people; they generally reside in a hospital but can be found in other places. Patience is something that … Continue reading Grammar Wednesday: Word Mixups – Patience v Patients
I'm going to be brutally honest in this post. I'm struggling. It's not just that I'm struggling with writing, because I am, but I'm also struggling financially. Writing isn't my main income; simply, it can't be. I in no way make enough to live off it, so my writing has been pushed the back burner. … Continue reading Struggles and WIPpet Wednesday!

Tricky bugger! You can phase out of something and not have it faze you. That's how this one works. EXAMPLES The star ship phased out of reality and into the third dimension. The captain stared at the view screen, unfazed by what was happening.
Sitting at the small table in Panera and waiting for my soup bowl and friend to arrive, I couldn't have been more bored. While I had been doing a good amount of work, I knew that I needed to get out and see some people. Hence how I had gotten there. Sometimes I can be … Continue reading A nugget of wisdom…
I thought that I should give you all an update on what's going on book-wise. I've been posting excerpts for awhile now, but I think a succinct post on them all might be helpful. To bring it all down to the basics, I've been editing a lot lately and not writing. This has got to … Continue reading Tiaras, crowns and the royal throne!
This is a rather easy one to figure out. One can wreak havoc with things that reek. =P Reek is a smell, nasty, but a smell nonetheless To wreak is a verb; it is something that someone does to something else. It is also not to be confused with "wreck," which I have actually seen … Continue reading Grammar Wednesday: Word Mixups – Reek v Wreak
Wow...I really just tried to write July for the date! I will not be joining next week because I will be on a mini getaway with my boyfriend. I so need it. I'm only getting one day off for about 6 weeks straight. Feel free to come kidnap me! So long as fun things happen … Continue reading WIPpet Wednesday!! October 9, 2013
Now this one is confusing for a lot of people. "Awhile" as one word basically means "For a while" with two words...so if someone writes "for awhile" they basically write "for for a while" which is confusing and incorrect. This makes it hard. If there is a "for" generally the "a while" will be two … Continue reading Grammar Wednesday: Word Mixups – Awhile v A while
I keep staring at my blank screen, trying to come up with a short story for this prompt. Nothing can conclude what I see or believe about change more than one simple sentence. It’s something that I’ve always believed to be true and that I know will guide my life as I continue to grow. … Continue reading The Only Constant…

These are two that get mixed up ALL the time, and it annoys me to no end. They mean very different things and can completely change the reading of a sentence and what follows. EXAMPLES Rusty, the wonder kitten, scarfed down her food and then vomited it up. Rusty thought it was better to lounge … Continue reading Grammar Wednesday: Word Mixups – Then v Than
