Bright and Early morning in the Smith household #ROW80 #Amwriting #Lesfic

My kids have gotten in the bad habit of waking up super early in the mornings, thus my morning writing time has become very short. Which has been a struggle, not going to lie. I've been struggling with this book on my writing list that I need to get done. I've honestly avoided it for … Continue reading Bright and Early morning in the Smith household #ROW80 #Amwriting #Lesfic

Mid-week check in for #row80 and #nanowrimo wrap up

I spent the last week barely writing and focusing as much as I could on launching my book. The barely writing slowed down my nano progress goals so I didn't hit my goals for NaNoWriMo, which were to write every day for 30 days and to write most of if not all of three novels, … Continue reading Mid-week check in for #row80 and #nanowrimo wrap up

Brandi Carlile Rabbit Hole #ROW80 #NaNoWriMo

So many rabbit holes this week, but the one I'm super excited about is Brandy Carlile music! It's my new favorite station on Pandora to write to.

Another round of #WIPpetWednesday #amwriting #thriller

I can't think of the word thriller without Michael Jackson's voice running through my head! Yesterday during therapy, my spouse mentioned that I had written a scary weird ass novel to our therapist. She was all "What!?" I was all, "I wrote a thriller." Cue Michael Jackson. Anyway! I am here to share another excerpt … Continue reading Another round of #WIPpetWednesday #amwriting #thriller

There’s Something Peculiar About #Trauma

I'm currently writing a novel that has a lot of trauma for one of my main characters happening within it, not only that, but it is very clear she has experienced similar trauma before. There's something peculiar about trauma for sure. Trauma changes us. It changes the way we think and the way we behave. … Continue reading There’s Something Peculiar About #Trauma

A Lenten Fast #blogging #life #writing #newreleases #editing

Well, it has been a long time since I've been on this blog. I unintentionally gave up blogging for Lent it seems. Go figure. I ran into one of the busiest few months of my life, even busier than wedding planning and moving across country and starting a new job. I'm not sure I thought … Continue reading A Lenten Fast #blogging #life #writing #newreleases #editing

Christmas Eve isn’t as relaxed as it used to be #ROW80 & #WIPpetWednesday

Christmas Eve isn't a break for me like it used to be. I was just telling the SO the other day that it's a bit weird not having a Christmas break from like when I was in school because I don't really know when everyone is done for the semester. Today is one of my … Continue reading Christmas Eve isn’t as relaxed as it used to be #ROW80 & #WIPpetWednesday
