A Deal with the Devil’s Daughter Update and Novel Announcement!

I started that story as a prompt of the day. After the prompt it kept going. It became a short story project. Well… It has become a novel outline and first few chapters! I am starting my final semesters ready to continue my deep dive. It has grown and will continue to grow. It is …

Writing and Fear

There are many things I am excited to write. There are many things I am prepared to share. There is one thing holding me back. Fear. It has been creeping into the corners of my mind and holding me back. I want to say everything that is on my mind. I want to share my …

Where My Writing Started and How far I Have Come

First pieces tend to be a writers facepalm moment. Looking back and asking “What was I thinking?” I had the distinct pleasure and displeasure to try giving my first novel another look. It was chaos… That specific piece will never see the light of day, but bits and pieces of it will. There were just …

Hobbies that Support my Procrastination!

Hiking is one of my favorite things to do when I can get a chance. I take pictures of amazing sights that I see on my hikes. I tell myself I can use them all. I end up using about a quarter of them. I look back and realize I killed a good amount of …

A Deal With the Devil’s Daughter

“Deal?” he questioned extending his dirty hand toward me. I reached out slowly waiting to see if he would take the hand back. Frank thought he had the upper hand, and in a sense he did. Until the final shake. What he did not know was that he was making a deal with the actual …

For Yourself Friday

Taking care of yourself is the most important thing. If you don’t take care of yourself how will you take care of everything else in your life? I put everything and everyone else first for so long that I started to fall apart. I got to the point where I couldn’t even write because nothing …

Prompt: 5/20/21

I said it and I meant it, and I was right. Still, I wish I could take it back, because there’s no way I can make it up to her, no way I can ever make her feel better. The deepness of the betrayal would be felt for years to come. She had tried to …

Things I Would Love to Study… For Fun!

I never thought hard about the question to, “What would I study for fun?” And yet it was fun and easy to answer. I study mythology all the time on my own, but I never thought to switch it up like this. I found a favorite and have had a hard time switching to something …

Prompt: 5/19/21

The moon broke through the clouds, and the four of them stood there, frozen, waiting for something to happen. They were in the middle of an open field, and it was as if a spotlight had been trained on them. Suddenly, without warning the moon gets buried behind clouds that were not there moments before. …

Workspace Must Haves!

1. All of the pens! I have all different colors for writing, editing, and lying to myself about doing work when I really know I am going to do word searches or logic puzzles. 2. All my prep pages and notebooks (outline, character sketch, random scenes, etc.) I tend to write random scenes and have …

Prompt: 5/18/21

It was like an echo from the past, or a dream that he was only just remembering. He recognized everything about the room, even though he was sure he’d never been there before. He knew the paintings on the walls, could name the artists who’d painted them. The only thing that puzzled him was that …

My Chaotic Process of Writing

Let me start this by saying there are days where my thought process resembles that of a squirrel at a rave trying to talk to a duck, a pigeon, and a dog about things while dancing to the wrong beat, but it keeps on chugging so there is that. Maybe I should cut back on …

Prompt: 5/13/21

People pretty much hear what they want to hear, see what they want to see, believe what they want to believe. And I guess I fell into that trap as well. I wanted to believe that everything I had done to get us here was the right thing. I wanted to believe that we would …

Prompt 5/12/21

I’m not really sure who started it. We think we remember things exactly as they were, but our minds play tricks on us. I can close my eyes and convince myself that the arguments were worth it. Every time things would start getting more and more intense we would fix things by not fixing them …

All of the Updates!

I spent last semester pitching my NA Greek Mythology series to my class, and it went amazing! Everyone gave me helpful feedback exactly where I needed it, and my professor was phenomenal! My characters started to flourish with the extra guidance in their own rights, my outline became more than just the bare bones, and …

Book Reviews Are Back!

I finally found my balance with my Master’s degree and following my chosen path outside of school. I know it took me a little bit, but I am back and ready to read it all and write it all! I am excited to start posting reviews again starting today! School was a lot to adjust …

Fahrenheit 451: Book Review

I decided to read this piece as a class assignment. Now, I have never read it before. I have heard wonderful things about Ray Bradbury’s classic piece, and I have seen the movie counterpart. I wanted to review it and share my thoughts because I would like to get some other takes on this piece. …
