Narrated by Naomi It took me much longer than I intended for it to and it went in very different directions than I had previously imagined, not to mention significantly longer, but I finished and I'm happy and quite proud of myself. I wrote the first chapter on October 21st of last year and finished … Continue reading Finished my current FF WIP!
*gasp* Several of my students have told me about Canva and just how accessible and easy it is to use. I can be a bit skeptical at times but they have honestly spoken nothing but the truth here. While I may not have the creative writing bug yet, or lately in general, the ability to … Continue reading Canva Magic!
It took a few days, but the tension between Amarynthe and her father eventually worked itself out. They had their talk – a couple in fact – and though neither was entirely happy with the outcome, they did manage to come to a compromise of sorts. Madeus promised that he wouldn’t attempt any more … Continue reading TMMD Chapter Five: Time Will Tell
So, today isn't going to be a particularly lengthy or focused entry, but... considering it's the one month anniversary since I started to get this blog back off the ground again (or on it's feet - whichever you prefer), and it's my birthday, I figured I'd at least say I hope that everyone has a … Continue reading Creativity and Other Stuff
For the audio version, you can listen here. Surprise! I don't know if anyone is still following or how active anyone else is, but here we go again. I've recently decided to resurrect this page and see if I can't actually do something with it this time around. I'm looking to try and publish something … Continue reading I’m Back!
Through a process of trial and error on various occasions with different writing sites, I have come to the conclusion that it is ultimately very satisfying to write for myself, which is the encouraging part, but that it is also somewhat discouraging when you're excited about what you're doing and you want to share it … Continue reading To Post or Not to Post? That is the Question
Listen to the poem here. It has been a long time since I've been moved or inclined to attempt to write any sort of poem. Not for lack of thinking about it but they don't exactly tend to be my forte. However, I was in my observation class the other day and we were talking … Continue reading Bugle’s Call
Huzzah! Took me long enough but I finally found a story arc that I want to pursue (again mind you and hopefully this one won't fall apart at the first sign of resistance) and have officially started my word count in NaNoWriMo (weighing in at 2659 at this point in time)! My synopsis and excerpt … Continue reading Finally!
Sometimes, it's easy to get wrapped up in your own work and not really see much of anything else beyond the words on the page. Very recently, I have been reminded of two rather significant points to remember, one of which I had mostly forgotten, though I've been reminded of on several occasions. The first … Continue reading Of Music and Books
So I was totally geared up for NaNoWriMo prior to the month starting and now, here we are, three days in and I have yet to write a single word for the story I had originally been banking on. Not that I haven't been writing, but it just hasn't been for NaNo. lol The initial … Continue reading A Bit of a Late Start
