Side Note: On the day I wrote this I already had another blog written and ready to go; so this is not actually about last night, but the moral of the story is the same. "Ugh. It's been a rough day," I said to my mom as I was driving home for work at 9:50 last… Continue reading It’s Been A Rough Day
“Who is your favorite author?” It is a question I get asked a lot, especially once I’ve told someone how much I love to read. I usually respond with a name, but if I’m being honest, that name changes depending on what I’m reading at the moment. It can be near impossible to pick a… Continue reading Authors I Love – Ann M. Martin
I love writing. I love creating these worlds in my head and characters that I instantly fall in love with. I can write character profiles and the beginning of a story all day every day. But in order to be able to share these worlds and characters with other people, they need to have an… Continue reading The Struggle is Real
One of the things I've been working on in my life is to try to be kinder; both to myself and to others. I recently set a goal of trying to say or do something nice to/for someone else every day. Yesterday I invited my friend Mary on a picnic lunch. It had been a… Continue reading Spreading a little kindness
As some of you may know, my birthday is next month. This year, as a present to me, I decided I would take a little mini-vacation for my birthday. I decided on Chicago (although I almost changed my mind when I realized how much the hotel/parking was going to cost *nervous giggle*), and a visit… Continue reading It’s official!

The front page of the notebook contained lyrics for a song I had written about 3 years ago. I'm not sure if it is very good as poetry… Continue reading The Lost Poem
This is the first blog in the "Thoughts from Places" category. It is an idea I 100% stole from Vlogbrothers, because I sincerely enjoy their "Thoughts from Places" videos (and I am a proud nerdfighter). Although, to be honest, theirs are better and you should probably check them out on YouTube. 🙂 Whenever I travel, I… Continue reading Jellyfish and Other Thoughts from the Tennessee Aquarium
Today's Blog was not on the schedule I mentioned earlier, but I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for the outpouring of support I have received as I embark on this adventure. To be honest, I was incredibly nervous I would not be prepared for launch. Things that should have been easy were… Continue reading Thank you!
As many of my friends and family members know, this is not the first time I’ve attempted to keep a blog. I have tried over the past 5 years or so to focus desperately on my writing. I would come up with plans and schedules, articulated those in my work, and yet it never sticks.… Continue reading But What If I Fail?
