    MERRY CHRISTMAS + a guest post!

    Hello folks! Can you believe that tomorrow is Christmas Eve? Goodness, I still haven’t adjusted to the fact that autumn is basically over. WHAT HAPPENED? It really is true that time speeds up as you get older.   I could write a post on recommended Christmas reading, or the true meaning of Christmas, or how to avoid stress during the holidays, but the truth is I’m pretty stressed these days myself. I’m hoping that everything will calm down a bit during January, and I’ll be able to get back to regular blogging. I really miss this place, and I know I haven’t been as active as I’d like. As for…

    The Back to School Tag

    {photo source} HELLO LOVELY PEOPLE. I hope you’re enjoying this beautiful Sunday. (We’ve been busy this weekend, which is why this post is late! Way late. Sorry.) I am so excited about getting back to blogging, though, that I just couldn’t force myself to take the day off! Also, I wrote a few posts during my (lengthy) hiatus, and this is one of them. So, quite some time ago, I was tagged by the lovely Angela @ The Peculiar Messenger for the Back to School Tag. Obviously I’ve been on break, and haven’t been doing any new posts, but this is horribly overdue. (Yeah… it’s only three months after school started, ZANE…) So……

    10 things I’m thankful for

    Photo source: barnimages.com It’s four minutes until six on Thanksgiving morning, and I’m in my warm, cozy bed pounding away on my keyboard. Everything is silent. I am the only one up. And yes, I’m writing a stereotypical Thanksgiving post. If you don’t like it, well… that’s okay, you’re entitled to your opinions. ; )   Here are ten things I’m thankful for today.

    If you haven’t been getting emails…

    If you haven’t been getting email notifications of my posts, there’s a reason for that.   The simple answer is: technical difficulties.   The long answer is:   I stopped getting email notifications for my blog posts about a month ago, and a few times, randomly, before that. I thought maybe it was just because I was the administrator, or because WordPress was acting up. (I haven’t been getting notifications of my comments either. Still haven’t figured that out.)   It wasn’t.

    I’m taking a break

    So, as you can probably tell by the title, I’m going on hiatus. Hiatus (hahy-ey-tuh s): 1. a break or interruption in the continuity of a work, series, action, etc. Before you panic! This is not permanent. I love blogging and have enough inspiration for three months of posts. I would actually like to blog MORE. But I don’t have time. It’s really hard for me to do this, because I enjoy blogging so much, but with school and everything it’s hard to make time for a blog post every week AND continue writing. (Not to mention I’m deep-cleaning my room, which is incredibly time-consuming. #yay) The real reason I’m taking a…

    L e a k | flash fiction

    Ho, wayfarers! It’s September. I can’t even believe that it’s not June anymore and it’s September already… Everything is going so quickly. So, if you couldn’t tell by the title…   I’m finally going to do it.   I’m posting my writing online.   *hides*   Yeah… I don’t really do the whole sharing-my-writing-with-other-people thing? I’ve gotten better about it, but this is a serious stretch for me to even be willing to post this.   You’re welcome. ; )   So, the story behind this is: I’ve been in a bit of a writing slump all month. BUT, when we were watching a cartoon movie one night, there was…

    Beautiful People #27 | August Edition

    Hello, all you lovely people! Guess what time it is. It’s time for Beautiful People again! *cheers* I am once more participating in the link-up hosted by Cait at Paperfury and Sky at Further Up and Further In. Hopefully it will help me break out of the writer’s block I’ve been having this month… writer’s block combined with “do-I-really-have-time-to-write-this-story-and-is-it-even-worth-my-time” block. YES, THAT IS A THING. (That I just made up. Shhh.) I will be doing this with one of my favorite characters (shhh don’t tell my other children) Katie Aline. She’s one of the main characters in my current novel and you can read more about her here. Here’s a brief bio:…

    introducing my new blog theme!

    Hello, everyone! I shan’t be doing a regular post today because #reasons… but don’t worry, I’ll be back next week. (: This week has been a little bit crazy, what with school starting and everything… But, I do have something for you! My new, glorious, done-over blog! I am quite honestly very pleased with the way it turned out. See the sidebar? And the header? And all my updated pages? And my pretty featured images? I am probably way too excited about this… So, I did update my pages, so you can go read those instead of the blog post I would have written. Or you could go read an…

    Horrendous stories I wrote as a child + what I learned from them

      Hello lovely people! Today I’m doing a tag created by Abbiee. I saw it on her blog around a month ago and knew I had to do it. And then I was tagged by Amanda at SKG Fun (an amazing blog),  so here I am. Thanks, Amanda! Now, before I begin, let’s note that I didn’t finish every one of these stories, because I was a scatterbrained young writer who abandoned things she got bored with in favor of new, shiny, glorious ideas. HAHAHA WHO AM I KIDDING. I still am that scatterbrained young writer. I also don’t actually have real titles for most of these. The files were…
