It starts slowly, as many major life changes often do. The itch hits as the sun rises. You’re unaware, but something amazing and horrifying has happened to you. Two small holes in your forearm surrounded by dozens of small bumps have you scratching your arm until you draw blood all day.
It's that time again, a new writing prompt! I sincerely enjoy doing these, and I hope to make it a daily exercise. Getting to sit down for a half hour even and put my brain to work creating a small view into a world is a thrilling activity. I amaze myself with the things that … Continue reading Writing Prompt: You Don’t Know
Working with a program to not only edit, but also outline and organize a story is still very new to me. I've started working with yWriter recently, but I still don't know much about it yet.

She flipped her stringy drown hair over her shoulder with a huff. Only an hour, she recalled telling herself before … Continue reading Writing Prompt: Thrifty Finds
Working with this new program I learned about through a writing group on Facebook, I'm hit with a new drive. The first thought I had was to work through a completely new idea and ignore any and everything else piling up on my desk. Which, by the way finally looks like a desk. I've gotten … Continue reading Editing the First Draft

I enjoy making stuff for my kids, but it always takes me away from my writing without my noticing. At the same time, I also find that it brings … Continue reading Updates and Stories
I'm back with more in 2017! I spent some time away after NaNoWriMo in November, which I handled like a boss by the way! With more than 51,000 words Killer Instinct rocked my first win ever for Novel Writing Month! I'm so proud to call myself a writer with my first every book complete from … Continue reading New Work in 2017
