A Quick Update from a Flustered Writer

I can see your skepticism when you read the title. You’re giving me the ol’ skeptical eye again. Flustered? you say. Girl. You are sixteen. You need to clillax. The world will take care of itself … NO IT WON’T. THE WORLD NEEDS ME TO MANAGE IT. The world is practically helpless without my guidance. I’m just […]

Writing Plans: Why They Can Be Disastrous

I really hate to admit this, but writing is a form of art. Why do I hate to admit this? Well, I don’t like to think of writing as an art because artists of all sorts tend to get into this attitude of laziness. “It’s art. Art can’t be rushed.” Most of the time, this […]

September 2017 Spotlight: My Obsession with Personality Types

Like many before me (and many who shall come after), I love classifying myself and others by the MBTI personality types. The basic idea is that every human being on earth can be classified loosely into one of the sixteen types. These types are defined by a combination of three letters. My type, for instance, […]

Time again for a round of questions by Morgan Dusky @ Studies in Character! I know it’s soon after the last round, but I really need to figure one of my characters (Adae from, well, Adae) out, and the questions are here, sooo? Why wait! This month’s theme is “the great outdoors!” If you want […]

Two Years and a Day

As of yesterday, I’ve been blogging for two years. And, in the general scheme of things, two years isn’t a long time. However, in the general scheme of blogging … well, as a non-professional blogger, that’s semi-long, right? Right? (Oh, who cares what you think. It feels like a long time to me. Who are […]

When Christian Fiction Is Ungodly

Note: this post is kinda along the lines of a Reading Rant, but not exactly. When you saw “graphic” and “Christian fiction” in the same title, you probably either laughed or winced. The ones who winced have actually read Christian fiction. Seriously, though, ladies and gents, you know I hate writing negative reviews … especially […]

Why Writers Should Be Bloggers

I bet y’all are wondering, “Why the sand? What does that have to do with blogging? Or writing? Or anything related to blogging or writing?” ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. It is the first stock photo that came up. It wasn’t even the BEST stock photo that came up! I AM SO GENIUS I SHALL TAKE OVER THE […]

25 Spoiler-Free Facts about Ivy Introspective

A few months ago, I posted 25 Spoiler-Free Facts About The Dressmaker’s Secret. And if you thought I was just going to do it for one novel, you were wrong. (No surprise there, eh?) (What?! I’m kidding!) (You are a very smart person … you’re just dumb about this one thing …) I stole this idea […]

However, for now, I’ll just be talking about the main character of Isolated (as well as a little bit […]

September 2017 Dares & Summer Ends

A single tear slid down the girl’s pale cheek. Her lips trembled, and she breathed slowly, evenly to prevent her sobs from ripping from her throat. Her mascara, a sickly dark brown color, stuck to her lower eyelashes, giving the appearance of a tween who has no idea how to do her face. She picked […]
