Book Review: Remarkably Bright Creatures by Shelby Van Pelt

Hey everyone! I feel like most of my posts start with me talking about a migraine recently. Ha. While I don’t have a migraine today (for once), I am feeling pretty bleh. The sun is shining. The birds are chirping. And I want nothing more than to go back to sleep. Could be because myContinue reading “Book Review: Remarkably Bright Creatures by Shelby Van Pelt”

Migraines & The Thief of Joy

Anybody else in this space get migraines? I figured I’d just jump right in. Why mince words when you can get straight to the point. I have been stuck in a pretty bad migraine cycle this month. I’ve been doing all the things to end the migraine pain, if not make it tolerable. My frontContinue reading “Migraines & The Thief of Joy”

An Exciting Announcement!

Hey everyone!! I just wanted to take a quick minute to announce that my flash fiction piece, “The Tale of the Good-Hearted Witch”, was published today in Carmina Magazine’s March 2023 issue. Carmina Magazine is a space for writers of fairy tales and mythology. (Which apparently is where my storytelling voice likes to live whenContinue reading “An Exciting Announcement!”

Book Review: The Soulmate by Sally Hepworth

Hey everyone! In my last book review, I said I was going to start doing singular book reviews as I finish my TBR, instead of waiting to put them all together in a blog post. And then I hit a reading slump. For a while it’s been like every book I pick up, I putContinue reading “Book Review: The Soulmate by Sally Hepworth”

Writing Prompts & Migraines

Hey everyone! Anyone else on here get migraines? I’ve been getting them more frequently lately. The irony being that I have overhauled my life considerably to be less stressful, and yet…the migraines persist. This week during Tammy Evans’ PUSH group (which I’ve talked about here before), she gave us two prompts inspired by a poemContinue reading “Writing Prompts & Migraines”

Book Review: Must-Reads and Misses from February 2023

Hey everyone! I’m back with another Book Review for February. This month has been a pretty prolific reading month for me considering it was only 28 days, and I was able to read 11 books. Within those 28 days there have been some hits and some misses, but overall I’d count it as a reallyContinue reading “Book Review: Must-Reads and Misses from February 2023”

Writing Prompts & Missed Calls

Hey everyone! Back at it with another writing prompt from one of my favorite writing communities: Tammy Evans’ PUSH Group! I’ve talked about PUSH Group before.

An Essential Anxiety Toolkit

Hey everyone! When I was first dealing with anxiety, it felt so big and scary. Not just because the physical feelings and intrusive thoughts were big and scary, but because I didn’t know how to make any of it feel less big and scary. I didn’t have the language to discuss or express it. WorstContinue reading “An Essential Anxiety Toolkit”

Writing Prompts & Witch’s Lairs

Hey everyone! I was going through my writing notebook and found a piece that I wrote at the beginning of last year. It was during a Saturday afternoon writing class with LA Writer’s Group, which I’ve talked about previously on this blog. It’s a first draft, written in the space of 12 minutes, and uponContinue reading “Writing Prompts & Witch’s Lairs”

January TBR vs. What I Actually Read

Hey everyone! I’m terrible with TBR’s. I’m a mood reader, so really, I buy a bunch of books in genres that I enjoy, knowing that ONE DAY I’ll get to them…when the mood strikes. So, a refresher for the January TBR. When I posted, I said I was going to read: I was actually offContinue reading “January TBR vs. What I Actually Read”
