January Books of the Month

Here goes the first of my new series, books of the month! Once a month, I will review all the books I’ve read over the course of the month. Not only is it a fabulous way to keep my mind reading in my downtime but also a GREAT way to support up and coming authorsContinue reading “January Books of the Month”

Outlines: The Cookbook of Writing.

Hey all! Are you an author who religiously outlines before a project? Maybe you dabble in it but then go to writing or maybe you just wing it. I believe we all outline to a degree, but the idea of what an outline is is fluid. Personally, my outlines are generic. I generally write myContinue reading “Outlines: The Cookbook of Writing.”

January Check-In

My month is definitely off to a rough start. In my personal life we’ve had two deaths in the family, my grandmother and my ex’s grandfather so it’s been a whirlwind. A third is on the horizon, and by the time this publishes, my uncle will have likely have passed. However, that hasn’t stopped meContinue reading “January Check-In”

First Draft? More like a Dump Fest.

Did you know most writers starting out have a hard time finishing their work simply because they critique their first draft into oblivion? No, just me? Well damn. This annoying habit of editing while I write has taken a LONG time to break, and no, I’m not cured. I do catch myself from time toContinue reading “First Draft? More like a Dump Fest.”

New Year Goals

Hey all! You all know the saying; new year, new me. I used to be one of those people and it’s hard not to get caught up in the idea that by becoming someone new we will inherently be happier. Or more successful. Or simply put, better than before. I’ve always been one of thoseContinue reading “New Year Goals”

A Writer’s Life

Back in high school, some ten years ago (yikes!), I had dreamt of an amazing concept for a fantasy saga. To be honest, it TOOK over my brain and these characters were all I could think of until I jotted their stories down. Quite recently, now that I’m finished with my latest project, I dugContinue reading “A Writer’s Life”

Faith and Change

If you were to die in six months, would you change anything about your life? For me, this answer is yet to be determined.  The fact of the matter is, we all come across things we’d rather not experience or go through. We all meet people who tear us to pieces when they leave andContinue reading “Faith and Change”

Two Months Old! 

Our little dude is TWO months old today!  These past handful of weeks have just flown by with little concern. The stress of being a momma to two is nearly nonexistent, though my toddler sure knows which buttons to press on the limited patience days. Haha!  It is sad to see my little man fittingContinue reading “Two Months Old! “

Busy Year Ahead

Boy has this year gotten it’s start on me! Life does not certainly slow down when you have a 11 month old bent on taking over the world!     But this momma is teaching him right! He’s going to be a boy for sure, playing with all the farm toys and enjoying that hunting andContinue reading “Busy Year Ahead”

Born Hero

   This little boy is my hero. Words alone cannot even begin to describe how proud I am of him for taking this recovery by the horns and continuing to smile each and every day even when he has some hard obstacles to overcome. He truly has his daddy’s strength and momma’s determination.  This pastContinue reading “Born Hero”
