Well, it's been a while. I've never claimed to be good at this whole "blogging" thing. I tend to spend most of my time over at Twitter I'm not writing or reading. I tend to let the blog go on the backburner for a while. As I've clearly proved time and time again. I just don't … Continue reading Checking In
It's been a while since I've posted anything about my writing life. So let's go! I recently submitted my second packet work to my mentor. It's my final semester and I'm writing my thesis now. It's a lot to think about, and the added pressure that this project is going to define me as I … Continue reading Writing Update
I sort of missed yesterday's log. We spent most of the day after workshop in the library doing some work. I plotted out the new parts of my thesis and I have a lot of things to do, but I have a new motivation for this story now. I got some great news this morning … Continue reading Residency Log: Day Seven
We've mostly had the day to ourselves today. There was the option to go on the Tahoe Excursion to go into the city and do some ice skating and such. We decided to hole up in a classroom in the library and get some work done. It's always nice to help other bounce ideas around … Continue reading Residency Log: Day Four
Goodbye Julie. We're going to miss you. You'll always have a home with our tribe. You can come back to us when you're ready. We love you.
If the morning starts with freaking out your roommate cause of your meditation, can it really get any better than that? No, not really. It's been a rough one. I hit my wall early today and things have not been going great. There's so much to do that I run out of spoons by lunch … Continue reading Residency Log: Day Three
While the east coast is being slammed with a crazy snow storm, I'm over here in Lake Tahoe, where it's sunny and 40 degrees. It's not necessarily warm, but at least we're not under two feet of snow, so I call that a lucky break. I'm still ridiculously exhausted. Last night, I passed out at … Continue reading Residency Log: Day Two
There are a lot of things I'd like to get accomplished this year. Some are pretty far reaching, but some I think I can handle. Then again, if there's some heavy depression sessions in my future, who knows. Every step is taken one day at a time. Writing Goals I'm looking to finish my YA … Continue reading 2018 Resolutions
I submitted my final packet of the semester last night and all I need to do is hear back from my mentor and I'll be good to go. It's been a rough semester. Right around the start of October, I went into a deep, downward spiral and my depression just wouldn't let up. It was … Continue reading Winter Break
Oh, hi there! I seem to have fallen off this blog for a little bit, again. It's been a rough few months. I sort of stopped being able to handle blogging and writing and reading all at once at the end of September and it was just not a fun time for a while. A … Continue reading Hello Again!
