• Another Random Image Prompt

    This week I tried my hand at another exercise from the Now Write book and I decided I needed the help of some random images again. These are what Google gave me, come back Thursday to see what I ended up with.

  • More Creative Penn for your Day

    I know I gush about Joanna Penn enough, but I would literally be lost without her podcast/newsletter/books etc, etc. So on the theme of plotting, planning, and all that nonsense I rambled on about on Thursday, here’s another one of her interviews.

  • Plotter and Pantser

    I have made significant progress on my nonfiction project in the last month. It’s a bit of a mess, but at least it’s a mess on paper and I can clean it up and make something interesting out of in the end. What I’ve been thinking about recently is the plotter vs. pantser argument. And […]

  • Shameless Self Promo

  • Drive a Lincoln or Something

    Just a little bit of love for Matthew McConaughey since I listened to his book this month.

  • February Reading

             Another month of reading wins down. I read five books again, and even though it’s too early to tell, I feel like this is setting a great trend of my reading for the entire year. If I can keep this rate up, I’ll surpass my reading goal again. But I will not get my […]

  • Night Reading

    This would have been super helpful when I was a kid. I couldn’t tell you how many times I got in trouble for reading in bed when I was supposed to be sleeping, haha.
