I Am Currently…

There has been a lot going on in my life lately and with the scheduled posts I've had to do I'm feeling all out of sorts with what I have and haven't told you and when. I thought it would be a great time to do a new post idea. It's by no means an… Continue reading I Am Currently…

Taking Breaks from Creativity

If you've been reading my blog lately you'll know, because I've mentioned it a lot, that I'm currently editing a novel that I've written (and wow, editing is so much more work than writing). I've been editing it for a couple months now and its a full time thing. Getting my brain to focus and… Continue reading Taking Breaks from Creativity

Life Update

In which I tell you I am so completely snowed under. I should point out I mean metaphorically just in case anyone thinks we've had yet another springtime snow storm. I have books to read for review. I have books to read to beta. I have MY book to read because I am editing and… Continue reading Life Update

Baby Leopards, Pretty Stationery and Finished 1st Drafts

I finished writing the first draft of my fantasy story! Happy Dance time! I celebrated with the age old - lets eat lots of yummy food - method. Chinese takeaway, ice cream and, okay, I had other desserts too! This post is literally just me patting myself on the back and explaining this is why… Continue reading Baby Leopards, Pretty Stationery and Finished 1st Drafts

Cyxus Blue Light Filter Glasses – Review

I don't think anyone would argue that looking at screens all day isn't so good for our eyes. For me this is amplified by my illness. Bright lights are difficult for me and within about ten minutes of looking at my phone screen (on the lowest brightness setting) I start to get a headache. Last… Continue reading Cyxus Blue Light Filter Glasses – Review

2018 Goals

I'm a little late with this new years goals post but it took me a little while to think about exactly what I wanted to write. I also spent the start of the year really sick but I'm over that now and ready to get down to business. Last year the goals I set were… Continue reading 2018 Goals

2017 Goals – How did I do?

At the start of the year I wrote a post about my goals for the year. All of them. From my craft goals, to blogging, to reading, to Spanish, to my etsy shop. All of the things I planned to do this year. You can check it out here if you want to but I'm… Continue reading 2017 Goals – How did I do?

NaNoWriMo – How Did I Do?

Nanowrimo is over! I can finally get back to life! Okay, so I actually stopped with about five days left so I've been back to real life for almost a week now but it's so weird waking up and having to decide what to do today rather than just - write! So how did my… Continue reading NaNoWriMo – How Did I Do?

NaNoWriMo Here We Come

I actually can't believe its nanowrimo time again. For those of you who don't know, NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month where people sign up and attempt to write 50k in the month of November. I am actually very well prepared this year but I still feel like I was only writing my last nanowrimo… Continue reading NaNoWriMo Here We Come

Life Continues

There are a lot of smaller things going on right now. I might have had an update on my quilt to post if I hadn't been spending most of my time working on a super secret project for my friends birthday next month. And as super secret projects go, I can't share it with you… Continue reading Life Continues
