Some Advice For The New Year

  No, I haven’t disappeared or fallen into a black hole. I’m still here. Just taking a much needed break. I’ve had a lot of personal things going on in my life this month and I’ve needed to back away from things and take a breath or two. I’m hoping the...

Time For A Makeover!

Thought I’d spruce up the look of the site just a bit. If you find any problems whether with text color (some posts didn’t change over to the theme standard font color) or links, please let me know. Thanks! Jesi

Fairies Don’t Write Novels…

One of the things I like about being a member of the NaNoWriMo siteĀ is the Pep Talk emails from published authors. One of my favorite authors, Diana Gabaldon (the Outlander series & Lord John Grey series), wrote one a few weeks ago. Today we received one from Stephanie Perkins, author of...
