Replay: Great Expectations

Originally published April 21, 2016 Let’s face it, we’ve all got a bit of Miss. Havisham in us. Who? Miss Havisham. The character from Charles Dickens’s Great Expectations. She was the caregiver of the love interest of the main character (Pip) was in love with. The most noteworthy thing about Miss. Havisham is that she was…

Replay: The Little Things

I’ve been on an unofficial hiatus as I race to finish the first draft of my next book. Honestly, it’s not going as well as I had hoped. But I have two weeks and a commitment to finish this thing in time. In the meantime, I’m going to re-share some posts from years past. I…

Casper

I was ghosted, y’all and I’m so slow, I didn’t realize it until almost a month later. Believe it or not, my first thought was, “Oh my goodness, he must have passed away” (some ego, huh?).  I was scared and nervous until a Google search informed me that sir is alive and well. Then I…

FALL in Love with Reading, Part 2

I know it’s much later than “tomorrow” as mentioned in the previous post. I took a little trip over the weekend and one of my crazy writer idiosyncrasies: I prefer writing on my own laptop. (It’s weird, I know). Then I got sick, but I’m much better now. And finally, I forgot to schedule it…

FALL in Love with Reading

September was a good month for books. Almost all of my reads were five star ratings. October was fair. I had a really good one, a pretty bad one and the remaining books were closer to the good side, so I’m satisfied. Initially, I had all the books in a single post, but I don’t…

It’s My Party

…and I’ll cry if I want to. Isn’t that how the song goes? I watch a lot of true crime shows and the thing that always stands out is that the friends and loved ones of the victim often apologize for crying.  Why is that? Surely grief is a valid reason to shed unapologetic tears.…

Summer Wrap Up Book List

Books, books, books, books, books, books, books, books, books, books, books, books, books, books, books, books, Everybody!  (to the tune of “Shots”). Honestly, this runs through my head 72.3 percent of the time… School started a few weeks ago, signaling the unofficial unofficial end of summer (yes, I meant to put it twice) and now…

Psssst…Hey Shorty

It goes down in the DM! Isn’t that what they say? I remember a few years ago, this man messaged me and although I knew none of what he was saying was true, I played along. He went from owning his own construction company to needing money to get a phone while stuck in another…

July Reads

It’s the first Friday of the month and we know what that means: book reviews! Woo hoo! July was a good reading month for me. I hope that by sharing what I’ve read encourages everyone to read more, or more books out of your comfort genre. So without fanfare or delay… Fat Girl by K.L.…

But…How Do I Get There?

“Count your blessings, cut your losses, and follow the yellow brick road.” –Ms. One There’s a lot to unpack in this simple statement. I quoted it to someone recently, because it was near-perfect for the situation. I just didn’t realize how relevant it is to my life as a whole and not just that moment.…
