When I Grow Up

I knew I wanted to be an author when I was six years old and my aunt told me that “The White-Pawed Kitten” was one of the best stories she’d ever read. And then my mom, a much less effervescent person, told me that it was pretty good work for a six-year-old. So I knew I […]

Finishing Goals and Making New Ones

So this month I am going to finish the second draft of my second novel in the Grover Cleveland Academy Series (why can’t it just have a name already?!?!?!?!). I’ve had the end in sight for about a week now, and I’m so excited that I can’t help thinking that everything that I want to […]

The Next Big Thing

Okay, so both Joshua Unruh and Courtney Cantrell tagged me to do this, so I guess I can’t ignore it. The point is to talk about the next writing project that you are working on. Go to the links above to see how Josh and Courtney answered the questions to “The Next Big Thing,” and […]

NaNoWriMo 2012: The End of the Road

That’s right, folks. I wrote 50,000 words in one month. I dedicated all of November to writing out my second Grover Cleveland novel, no matter how bad it sounded in type. It was certainly a bumpy road. There were some days when I would write over four thousand words, and some days when I couldn’t […]

NaNoWriMo 2012: The Halfway Point

We are officially halfway through November, and that means, naturally, we’re halfway through NaNoWriMo. Things are continuing to go well for me. I’m 2k words ahead and plan to keep it that way. I had little bit of a struggle over the weekend to get in my wordcount, mostly because I was at my parents’ […]

NaNoWriMo 2012: The Plot Thickens

We are now a week into NaNoWriMo, and so far I am pleasantly surprised with myself. I got together with some writer friends on Halloween to usher in the new month. They must have inspired me a lot, because I started out strong with over 1500 words in the first hour and a half of November […]

NaNoWriMo 2012

It’s Halloween, and tonight I’ll be dressing up as an author. Haha. That’s a joke, because I really am an author. Tonight we ring in the craziness that is NaNoWriMo. I’ve heard pros and cons concerning whether or not authors should bother with NaNoWriMo, and while I think both sides have merit, I’m opting to […]

Into the Flames: the aftermath

I’m sure you’ve all heard by now that I have a novel published. It is an interesting feeling, having other people read something I’ve worked so hard on for so long. Fortunately though, everyone seems to like it. If you for some crazy reason haven’t gotten around to reading it yet, you can buy it […]
