There are seventeen days until I move back on campus to good old Austin Peay, and I’m trying to figure out what books to take with me. A little while ago I bought a new bookshelf to lighten the load on the old one, and somehow this new one is already filled. I don’t know… Continue reading I Want to Live in a Library
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
Of winning NaNoWriMo. Of Thanksgiving vacation. Of finishing my Aura trilogy. DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW INSANELY ECSTATIC I AM? Word count: 43,000 Deaths: 9ish Psychotic breakdowns: 1 I’m at the midpoint of Broken Moon and having a fabulous time with it. This weekend was so good for me. I cleaned my apartment. I’ve… Continue reading I’m On the Brink
It’s the day before NaNo, y’all! I’m pretty OUT OF MY FREAKING MIND EXCITED. WHOO. As my nephew would say: ARE YOU READY SON? ARE YOU READY SON? No, not really. I’m not ready at all.

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!
I abuse summer every year. There’s all this wonderful time to write and hang out and try new things, and I end up sleeping half the day and watching TV shows on DVD the other half. It’s horrible. I’ve got to spend my summer wisely this year. Tomorrow I think I’m going to pack up… Continue reading Change of Scene
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?
Today’s been a busy day so far, and I’m about to head out of my house yet again. For some reason, when I have to be out and about whilst trying to put in my daily sweat, blood and tears word count, I like to write on paper. It’s so easy to talk myself into… Continue reading Writing On the Go
I am an avid Dr. Seuss fan. His books are genius. Ask me who some of my favorite authors are, and Dr. Seuss will always be on the list. So when my younger siblings ask me to read something to them, it’s going to be Fox in Socks, Green Eggs and Ham, or the like.… Continue reading The Importance of Rhythm
