Guess who reached her goal of 50,000 words for National Novel Writing Month today? For those who may not remember, I decided to do NaNoWriMo for the first time after finishing the first draft of my sci-fi novel, Lionhearted. I chose as my project a crossover fanfiction idea: a historically-impossible-but-alternate-universe-worthy story where Queen Victoria is forced to...

currently: returning to the TARDIS

You never know what things will lead to, y'know? I watched Victoria a little over a month ago, fell head-over-heels in love with the story of one of England's greatest queens, and came up with a delightful idea for a NaNoWriMo project. Which, by the way, is coming along swimmingly. I'm working on my synopsis (somehow it's... Continue Reading →

Lionhearted: An Introduction

I'm about to tell you a story I haven'treally shared on this blog. Oh, I've mentioned it here and there, or at least alluded to it, but I've never told it in detail.

But attention Fellow Novelists: go check out her blog! I know she and I have been running in the... Continue Reading →

My Little Lady Sif

I never. Ever. Buy toys for myself. But I've been in love with Funko POP! dolls for a while, and in a moment of great generosity upon myself, bought one. It was only ten dollah. I have no shame. Meet my new little friend, Lady Sif. "And though she be but little, she is fierce."... Continue Reading →

The “Half-Baked” Writing Tag!

Anne-Girl, the sister of one of my favorite bloggers and dearest Internet friends, Miss Amy Dashwood, has a new blog on the block: Half Baked: A Writing Blog. To launch her new blog, Anne-Girl has written a mission statement and started a little blog party, complete with a tag and a giveaway. I fear I might... Continue Reading →

Master List of Things To Do

In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun. You find the fun and SNAP--the job's a game! Also deadlines make a job rather fun, too...or at least, it adds a certain challenge to the whole thing. I have a deadline, and that deadline is August 4. That's the day my... Continue Reading →
