Act III Woes

I just have to share... I am REALLY struggling to write right now. I know what I have to write, I want to write, but I have to write the climax at this point. I've reached my climax chapter. This is what I am worst at as a writer. I have a lot of strengths, … Continue reading Act III Woes


I Can’t Blog While I Write My Books

Hey everyone! Recently I purchased a laptop to replace my extremely fatigued 2007 iMac. I was stubborn in my loyalty to my desktop Mac, seeing as the computer had seen me through six moves in two states, the entirety of my five-year college career, and literally hundreds of writing attempts.

Reviews & A Link: INTO THE OCEAN

I have been writing a ton lately (working on my second book!) and really loving it. I know that I will write even more when I'm back out at school, since there's nothing like LESS time to make my brain really want to dive into a story. This writing flow has also inspired me to … Continue reading Reviews & A Link: INTO THE OCEAN

“I Started at Age 5…”: Head Starts and Late Beginnings

You know how you hear about those people who are professional athletes, and you find out they started when they were, like, 3 years old? For instance, you hear about olympians who had been doing gymnastics since 18 months old. It always makes me feel like I am way behind and have no chance to catch … Continue reading “I Started at Age 5…”: Head Starts and Late Beginnings
