Another year come and gone, but I can promise you this one was well lived. I've been through the wringer in 2019, and it was my own fault in many ways. However, as my life begins to fall back into place, I'm incredibly grateful for all of the highlights that lifted me out of dark … Continue reading New Holiday Event–Are You in the Spirit?
I recently officially acquired a full time job, and one of the most exciting things about that is having disposable income again. My list of what I'll spend it on is quite specific: rent, bills, food, clothes, board games, and books. I'm a simple girl with simple needs. Luckily, I still have plenty of books … Continue reading Review: Delta by Jonathan Farnham

I've never done a pre-order before (let's be perfectly frank, I've clearly never done ANY of this publishing … Continue reading Why Swoon in June?
There you have it, ladies and gentlemen. Another NaNoWriMo event come and gone in a whirlwind. If you're unfamiliar with NaNo, I highly recommend you check out their website. It's both an event and an organization that brings writers together. Those who participate in the event pledge to write 50,000 words in 30 days (or … Continue reading Camp NaNoWriMo (April) Recap
How many times does a person need to restart a website? Seriously, is there a count you hit before you finally stop redoing them? Maybe a prize for most well intentioned but still abandoned sites? I swear between two email addresses I'm up to 6 or more WordPress blogs. No joke! But I'm not here … Continue reading The Journey Begins (again??)
