Hey everyone! It's been awhile since you've heard from me on the editing front. For about three weeks, I was hitting it hard. My friend Vanessa needed to study for her nursing exam that is coming up. We agreed to help each other out by going to Starbucks daily after work. She would sit with… Continue reading Writing Blog: Day 5 – Editing just got real, y’all
Welcome to the Writing Blog! My day to day adventures in the writing process! To catch the newbies up, I have been working on my first young adult novel for over two years now. At the end of drafting the Dystopian tale, I hired a freelance editor to help me clean it up so I don't… Continue reading Writing Blog: Day 1 – Printing First Draft
Miss me? Probably not. It's okay. I get we weren't really close. It's my fault really. I've neglected my blog, which in turn means, I've neglected all you bloggy friends. Well, hey! First things first. I'M ALIVE. Holy smokes! I just checked to see the date of the last entry and it's cringe-worthy. What's worse… Continue reading Let’s Revamp This Blog: New focus and features
Hello friends! It's that time again where I crawl into my most comfiest of clothes, don't wear makeup, prescription glasses on instead of contacts, my hair is a nest on top of my head, and the coffee is flowing till the wee hours of the night. I'M WRITING! What? Oh, you think you can write a… Continue reading Writing in the New Year
Pfft! Yeah, about that...I have NOT been keeping calm. Can we take a brief moment to talk about this? Where the HELL did the year go? We ate turkey?

Because, I don't… Continue reading December Expectations: Books, Authors, Writing, Oh my!

The Extremist That is Me: I'm either reading or writing: 'All or Nothing' Hello folks! Nice to see you again. I feel as though it's been a while. I guess compared to my more consistent (multiple a week) posts from the last few months--when put up to those standards--it really has been a while.… Continue reading All or Nothing Writing Week
Writing...Oh, Yeah, It's Back On, Baby! ...took long enough-Ha! I'm such an extremist. I'm either all Reading or all Writing. I need to learn happy mediums. The last four months I would say, have been me waiting. And waiting...wondering when the juices to complete my synopsis would hit me. Here I was trying to be… Continue reading Writing…Back On!
