I think we can all agree being a writer is not a way to make big bucks. If you didn’t know this, I’m sorry for bursting your bubble. There’s money to be made, sure, but if you want to be a millionaire I’d suggest becoming a surgeon or anesthesiologist. Something I’ve been mulling over ever… Continue reading Thoughts on Publishing
In a way that feels ostentatious (I always feel that way when talking about myself or my stories), I announce that CALIFORNIA GIRL’s chapter one has been posted on Wattpad and Figment. After a very long wait. After much laziness on my part. Normally, I don’t like to brag. But today’s Writer’s Market class was… Continue reading Like Free Stories?
So, trying to get back on the blogging horse, so can I start out with a sort of cheat post and give you an excerpt from my edit-in-progress, NASR? This book is my child, and I simultaneously love and hate it. It’s written in dual POV with Braxton and Lissy, and the excerpt is from… Continue reading Excerpt! Not Another Stupid Romance
I was pretty depressed all yesterday because I didn’t have anything to work on, so I needed to come up with a new WIP asap. I’m completely dependent on my writing. It’s life support for me. Like any good writer, the first thing I did was make a cover! Yeah! How’s that for procrastinating before… Continue reading New Project!

I’m going to do a post on that tomorrow. But first! Last night I finished my novel! You know, the one I mentioned a post or two… Continue reading Novel Fifteen!
That title is borrowed from the subject line of an email from a friend, who also pulled a rather spectacular disappearing act. I can’t believe I’ve only posted once this month! Bad, Gabrielle, bad! You are a very bad girl! So, why have I been MIA after such glorious promises of good behavior in my… Continue reading The Disappearance of Gabrielle
TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR GAAABBBYYY…. You really thought I was going to type out the whole song, didn’t you? ^_^ No, I’m satisfied with wearing my birthday tiara all over creation today, and telling random strangers that it’s my eighteenth birthday and I’m very… Continue reading Many Good Things
It’s time for another lesson on what not to do, ghastly mistakes courtesy of myself and The Monster. For anyone who has not already heard me bemoaning it, The Monster is a half million word long catastrophe of a novel, with which I’m fairly sure I made every mistake in the book of mistakes while… Continue reading Lessons from the Monster: Descriptions
