The past couple of weeks have seen things quiet down somewhat for me. I had a friend interested in revisiting a series I'd had her beta-read for me a couple years ago, which is always encouraging, so I spent a few days speed-reading my drafts to make sure I was sending her the most up-to-date … Continue reading Odds & Ends 6/28-7/11
I can't believe it's been almost a month since my last post! This summer is already keeping me busier then I expected. There's been a lot of time spent on the road to my parents' and to my brother & sister-in-law's (my niece's adorableness requires regular observation), more world-building research, and I managed to catch … Continue reading Odds & Ends 5/17-6/13
Another two weeks gone by in a blur! But in spite of how quickly it seemed to pass, I did manage to get a few things done. I finally got my hands on my new bed frame, and I put it together ALL BY MYSELF! And even better news, in the week since, it has … Continue reading Odds & Ends 5/3-5/16

I would say the binge-watching was more successful than the spring cleaning as I managed to enjoy the entire season of Shadow and Bone … Continue reading Odds & Ends 4/19-5/2

While many may be tuning in to the Super Bowl tonight, I'll be enjoying All Creatures Great and Small on PBS. If you're looking for a gentle, feel-good escape from reality, I highly recommend checking out this series, set in 1930s Yorkshire and centered around new veterinarian James Herriot. Another show you need to be watching, … Continue reading Odds & Ends 1/25-2/7
Well, the weekend is over and the holiday season is officially underway! After a small Thanksgiving with my immediate family, I now have a fridge full of leftovers to live off of, so cooking is one less thing to worry about for a while. I still have a couple last-minute gifts to check off my … Continue reading Odds & Ends 11/16-11/29
What have I been up to in October?
It's blogiversary time!
I finally began to feel productive again over the past couple of weeks. First and foremost, I've gotten some good writing time in as I try to work out this kink in my third act. Sometimes you just have to keep writing through a scene, even when you know what you're writing isn't going to … Continue reading Odds & Ends 7/6-7/19
