A Writer’s Journal: July

Living creatively is rewarding because I get to take my ideas from a mere thought in my mind to something tangible that people can enjoy. But it can also be draining, especially when I fail to see the results I want. And it’s even more draining when my writing has to compete with so many other parts of my life. Writing is my escape and some of my best stories come when I’m experiencing a strong emotion.

A Writer’s Journal: May

was further discouraged to pursue this career by my 7th grade middle school English teacher. I remember only small snippets from that day, but I remember her barely lifting a finger to help me. I remember leaving her classroom upset, with my head held low. I went back to the cafeteria and sat with my friends. I don’t remember if I engaged with them, but I remember giving up on my dream. But the worst thing is this: I felt like an idiot for trying to step outside my comfort zone and that feeling stuck with me for years. Even now, nearly 15 years later, it’s a memory and a feeling I struggle to shake off.

At the start of every day I was ambivalent about the romance between A and Rhiannon. After spending one day together, A was convinced they were in love with Rhiannon.

A Writer’s Journal: April

April was such a good month for me. Despite not finishing the first Camp NaNoWriMo challenge of the year, I still have a rough beginning for my new novel. I’ll be honest, most of it is crap and will either be edited out or heavily revised in future drafts. But it’s still a start and that was my biggest goal for this month.

Once & Future: Review

The greatest strength of this story is its inclusivity..This book seeks to normalize many things that our current world either ignores or dismisses, while also poking fun of many of the harmful “-isms” some people still desperately cling to…
