I’m having a meltdown, m’kay? Not a real meltdown, but I’m really busy, and even with packed days I still go to bed with stuff needing to be done. So basically I’m saying I shall try my best to post for the next three weeks until school lets out, but it ain’t gonna be easy.… Continue reading Meltdown Having
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?
You know when you run your mouth and think you can do something and then the deadline starts looming and, surprise!, you might not be able to do what you said you were going to? *nervous laugh* That’s kind of what I did. Kind of. Because I think I might still be able to make… Continue reading Two Days
From Ch. 2: On the day I left home, I came to Rush’s room to say goodbye. It was immaculate almost to the point of looking unlived in; there was nothing of his in there besides a picture. But now it was clear that he and Maya were staying indefinitely. Car posters covered every available… Continue reading California Girl – Excerpt
Ladies and gents, I’ve made a decision. The other day, I was reading a book whose title I’ve forgotten. I like to sit between the rows in the library at my school and read random books, and this one was about student artists.

Self-importance to the max, people. Bear with me while I pretend you’re all dying to hear the mindless prattle I’m about to write. Up on the navigation bar you’ll notice the tabs for Snow and Summer Rush have disappeared and this innocuous little one labeled Fiction has appeared. Well, in case you can’t figure it… Continue reading Sometimes I Pretend People Hang on My Every Word
Ladies, gents, flies on the wall, how many times have I tried to write Summer Rush’s companion novel, California Girl? I’m honestly not trying to sound conceited, but a lot of people ask me about it, and I always hem and haw and mutter into my shirt collar about how I’m working on it, I… Continue reading I’m At It Again
I told you another one of these ecstatic posts would be coming soon. I wrote “The End” on Summer Rush’s companion novel, California Girl, at exactly midnight last night. Then I sat there going, “Is this the end? This feels like the end. Is there more I’m supposed to be saying? No, I think it… Continue reading I Finished California Girl!
How many times will this crazy girl squeal out I’M DONE! AGAIN! Well, this is getting on towards the last time, I swear. But I’m done! Again! I finished Summer Rush Draft 7 about two minutes ago. Then I hugged the pages and kissed it and did a little crazy dance celebrated in a completely… Continue reading I Know What You’re Thinking
This is usually where I apologize for not posting, but I’m not even going to go there today. I am but moments away from finishing my NaNo novel, California Girl. This baby’s come a long way, and the title doesn’t fit anymore. It’s been bothering me a lot lately, that ill-fitting title. I’m not sure… Continue reading Are You Ready?
