I know it's 2022. It's only a few weeks into the new year and I'm already talking about burnout. It's kind of how the last two years have been. Article after article are out about how the pandemic has taken a toll on people's mental health. I'm always plugged into ways to avoid burnout and … Continue reading Burnout is Hard
Happy New Year! It’s been a while since we’ve talked. I took December off because the holidays were absurdly stressful. I was overworked and overwhelmed. But now it’s January. It’s a new year! And I am still a little overworked, but being overwhelmed? Well, I took some time for myself. I didn’t write. I didn’t … Continue reading Goals for 2022!
I start by saying failing is a strange term. It's something we can believe even when it's not true. And when it comes to writing challenges (specifically NaNo), I feel like the biggest failure. I have gotten so many things wrong while writing the past two years. I do challenges and never finish. I write … Continue reading An Ode to Those of Us Who Failed
I'm not good at sitting still. I'm always starting something new. I have a thousand ideas. So having to have surgery was hard for me. I made plans to not only read 5 books in May, but write the outline to two workbook concepts, an outline for a novel, and clean when I could. I … Continue reading Personal Post: Surgery Forces New Focuses
I'm interrupting your regularly scheduled book and writing posts with a life update. One, as you're reading this, I'll probably be in surgery or recovering from surgery. So please send me your best vibes for recovery. Two, I've been with my boyfriend for three whole years. It feels crazy. We went from long distance in … Continue reading Personal Post: Sorry to Interrupt, But It’s Been Three Years!
I'm going to be very honest with you right now. I haven't been writing. Outside these blog posts, which I tend to write in a rush at the wee hours of the morning when I can't sleep, I haven't written anything else. Every story concept feels blah. Every word uninspiring. I can't plot anything. I … Continue reading Writing Reset
After such a rough year (and an even rougher start to this year), I've had to sit with my thoughts for a bit. My brain tends to get foggy when overwhelmed and I have to take some time to sit down and think what's important to me. I only have so many hours in a … Continue reading Why I Started Blogging
This year definitely feels different than last year. This time last year I was excited to write down my resolutions and think about my goals. I was preparing for a trip to Vegas. I had started a new job that I thought was going to be the best thing ever. And oof. We got hit … Continue reading 2021 New Year’s Resolutions
First I would like to apologize for this late post. I didn't mean to lose track of time, but the holiday season just messed me all up. I will be back on a regular schedule starting next week. This one is just super late (sorry). A lot has happened this year. A lot. Not just … Continue reading 2020: A Year in Review
Guess who once again forgot what day it was and is posting a day late? This lady. I try to write them the night before by the latest, but since I've been working from home off and on my days are all messed up. I realized it was Monday by 2 in the afternoon and … Continue reading Holidays Are Hard This Year
