The past couple of weeks have been all about trying to find a balanced routine & keeping up my writing rhythm. I've found I'm more successful at that with smaller, short-term goals that let me measure progress with my writing while still allowing me to step away and get things done in other areas of … Continue reading Odds & Ends 1/9-1/22
It's been a minute since my last post, hasn't it? No, I was not taken, I did not join witness protection, nor did I go into early hibernation (though that last one sounds tempting). My computer simply decided this fall was a good time for a prolonged swan song. I took it in for a … Continue reading Odds & Ends ???-12/11
I'm a week back into the routine following our family vacation today, and now that I've had my fun and relaxation, my goal for this month is to build up some better habits to see me through the rest of the year. Vacation was a lot of fun, and I was not eager to see … Continue reading Odds & Ends 7/25-8/7
Well, the productivity over the past two weeks has come in spurts, but at least it's there. I've made some headway in my editing, flying through the first few chapters, and I'm currently wading through a section where I suspect I'm going to have to kill one of my darlings, but I'm still trying to solve which … Continue reading Odds & Ends 5/9-5/22
Happy late Easter everyone! I was fortunate enough to get to celebrate with my family last weekend, so I missed posting last week. It was nice getting to spend that quality time together, and my niece has reached an age where she's constantly picking up on new things and learning them lightning fast, so we all … Continue reading Odds & Ends 4/4-4/24

Plans have been up and down and changing fast, my apartment is a bit of a mess, I've done little to no writing, and my desk is covered in a full layer of to-do lists, reminders, checklists, and other assorted paperwork. I kind of wish … Continue reading Odds & Ends 3/7-3/20
aka When I Turned 30!
After the hubbub of the holidays, things are finally settling down into a more regular routine. In the last two weeks, I've gotten a little writing in, become thoroughly acquainted with Encanto (I definitely recommend), caught up on the MCU with Eternals (it was just okay) now that it's on Disney+, and generally tried to stay inside at all … Continue reading Odds & Ends 1/10-1/23
For my last blog post of the year, I just want to wish everyone a merry Christmas and a happy New Year! I've been enjoying the last few days with my family before I have to jump back into the grind for one more week of 2021, and then who knows what 2022 will bring. … Continue reading Merry Christmas!
Another whirlwind couple of weeks included the last of my Christmas ordering (I have one or two more items left to buy in person), my niece taking tentative steps on her own, wrestling with a photo-editing program, cracking up at my extended family attempting to play virtual reality games, a delicious Thanksgiving, some very light … Continue reading Odds & Ends 11/15-11/28
