You may have noticed, or maybe not, that I haven’t been posting here lately. I wasn’t on vacation or ill or doing anything glamorous or interesting. I was just taking a break. Last time I posted here, I was very busy reading, but I wasn’t doing much writing at the time. I’m sort of in […]
Self-attributed bookworm: Check. Writer? Not at the moment.
A few days ago, I felt like I had not gotten nearly so much done in February as I had originally planned, but now, I see that I got a TON of stuff done, it just wasn’t all in the original plan! And you know what? That’s OK. Reading Challenges Well, I got more books […]
You know how sometimes you try to fix something and wind up breaking something else?
I wanted to do some more microfiction today, but I couldn’t come up with anything I thought was worth sharing. Maybe next time. In the meantime, I’ve made some progress with my other projects, though not as much as I’d been hoping. Editing I finished rereading the latest draft, but as I neared the end, […]
Ready for Round Two: Reading AND Editing

I have a few ideas about what I want to do on the blog here in the coming year, but first, let me get round to what I have been doing lately: Procrastination/fun stuff NaNoWriMo is over, and I did finally finish my story, but I had one last little update to do, and that’s […]
Sleep deprivation leads to bad decisions. Case in point.
I know I’m not a book blogger, but I am a reader as well as a writer, so I’m signing up for two reading challenges in 2014. Because I just wrote over 70k words in 30 days and I thought I should attempt something seemingly even more impossible. Seriously, e-slap me. I think I’ve lost […]
