I can't believe that it's already April! Summer is so close, yet so far. So for this month, I've decided that I'm going to need to make a key change in my blogging schedule. Instead of posting every Monday and Thursday, from now until the end of the school year (early June) I'm… Continue reading April Update
I've decided that I'm going to try to share more about my writing journey, just because I love reading the blogs of other writers. It's always so great to gain perspective from other writers at different points on their journey. This month has been an amazing one for my writing. I'm a finalist in TeenPit, which is… Continue reading 2018 Writing Update #2
January was a doozy of a month. It went by so fast, and I'm not going to lie, with school and everything else going on I do feel a bit burned out. February is going to a super busy month for me, and I'm not sure if I want it to go by as fast… Continue reading January Wrap-Up
2018 is the year that I want to put a greater focus on my writing. Over my greatly needed winter break, I started on working on a YA contemporary idea that had been tucked away in my mind since last July.

One thing that I got out of this Nano was I fixed my setting.… Continue reading Writing Update: Nanowrimo Wrap-Up

WE'RE HALFWAY THERE, AND NOTHING'S GONNA GET IN THE WAY- ok, I'll stop. (I'm not the only one who watched Big Time Rush, am I?)… Continue reading Writing Update: We’re Halfway There!
Nanowrimo has officially begun, and I just wanted to share some quick writerly words of encouragement. Nanowrimo is such a wonderful time of the year, but I also know that it can create a lot of pressure. Don't worry if you miss a few days or even a week. As long as you end up with more… Continue reading Thursday’s Thoughts: Writerly Encouragement

Is it really September? Do I really start junior year tomorrow? (Also any junior year of HS advice would be greatly appreciated!) Does Nanowrimo really start in less than two months? Are there really only four months left in 2017? Wow wow wow. I thought in this writing update I'd share what I'm doing… Continue reading Writing Update #3: Nanowrimo Starts in Two Months?!
Hello everyone, July has come to an end. Which unfortunately means that the summer is winding down. July's been a crazy hectic month for my family. My reading and blogging didn't suffer much because of it, but my writing did a bit. More on that later. Books I read during July! (If there's an asterisk… Continue reading July Wrap-Up
