{OCTOBER WRAP-UP}

  October is over. Only two more months are left in 2017. I can’t believe I’m saying that because it seems like yesterday when I last wrote a blog post about it. But here I am, writing a cheesy intro, wondering how this month flew by so quickly.     WRITING   I’m just going to say: writing this month was rough.   I spent hours slogging through the first draft of When Real Lies. It was an emotional roller…

{JUNE WRAP-UP} + makeover & vlog ideas

  (aka… I haven’t done this since April, have I?)   HOW IS IT SUMMER?!?!? I have creepily vivid memories of this time last year, so it doesn’t seem right that summer 2017 is already here 😛   So how did I kick off my summer? Instead of taking the two months between April nano and July nano to rest, little old me decided to write another novel 😛 I finished the draft with a monster word-count of 133,000 words.…
