To celebrate the completion of my fantasy manuscript, I went online to ask for possible book-related questions that I could organize into a blog post.

Hi, everyone. I finally finished my manuscript. Yup, you read that correctly. I finished my manuscript! Well – technically, I typed “The End” last August, but that first draft was in pretty rough shape, let me tell ya. Fast forward a year, and I’m working on the final edit. It’s a long road to publication…Continue reading Falling Forward – An Update on My Manuscript

Since publishing my book (I couldn’t resist…Continue reading Shaggy Hair and Other Caffeinated News

To get to that point meant removing myself from social media and blogging. Instead, I’ve used every spare minute to work on my book, with a short…Continue reading I Finished My Book!
It’s after midnight here in my corner of our little planet. And I decided that instead of sharing a poem this week, I’d share my late night thoughts with you in its stead. It can wait til some other time to be posted – which probably makes it the most patient poem I’ve written so…Continue reading I’m Gonna Be a Writer When I Grow Up – Oh No!
