So every once in a while someone inevitably asks me something about vacation. Either they ask when the last time I took a vacation was, or we're talking about theirs and I comment that I'm jealous, or something. But somewhere along the line, it turns into a question of why I don't take vacations. And … Continue reading Vacation? Never Heard Of It…
Getting back into a habit of anything is hard. You'd think I would have learned this lesson by now, but alas, here I sit with absolutely nothing accomplished of attempting to get back into the swing of things. I have my bullet journal all started, but I haven't touched it in days. I want to … Continue reading It’s Going to be Okay
So yeah, you may notice this is going up late. Apologies, it's been...a time. Here's the state of the Rion: As you probably know (and if not, WELL LET ME TELL YOU) I released my debut novel on the 25th of April. I'm not an overnight sensation, but I wasn't really expecting to be. It's … Continue reading May Day, Mayday!
...here I am, a week later than intended. Oops? You all know how bad it can get during NaNoWriMo. I suddenly looked at my calendar while I was filling in my bullet journal and went "...oh. Right. Blog posts. Oops." For the first 4 days of November, I was either entirely focused on writing, or … Continue reading True to Form…
So I figure Fridays will become my more personal post day. Maybe that's sharing a bit of writing I really like, maybe it'll be something else. Today I need somewhere to rant, because stupid things are happening to friends of mine and I have very little patience for it. SO HANG IN THERE WITH ME. … Continue reading Personal Post Time: Brain Fights
It's been a trying past few...whiles. The past few days in particular, I've been feeling very frustrated and disheartened about a lot of things in my life. I had a bunch of topics I was going to write about but none of them are coming to me. (One I can't remember what I meant by … Continue reading Discouragement, Frustration, Irritation
This is a very important topic to me, and one that still touches very close to home as I still struggle with it. I apologize in advance if my train of thought jumps around a little or I seem a little disconnected. I have a lot of thoughts about this and I'm not sure how … Continue reading Working Through the Lies or With Them?
Good afternoon, my faithful blog followers. I appreciate anyone reading this, since it means that you've stuck around even when I've got dark. Thanks so much! Here's the scoop: I want to try and start writing in here consistently again. I've been watching my friend and fellow writer Denise Drespling's videos on YouTube lately and … Continue reading Schedules and Writing and Videos…?
As you all may have noticed, I've really pretty much gone completely dark. I've been trying to keep up with something--anything--and it just hasn't worked out. So here's what's happened since the beginning of the year: Moved into my own apartment. This has been awesome in some days and decidedly not cool in others. I've … Continue reading Update on the State of the Rion
Everyone who knows something about me and my writing knows my passion for the National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo, that goes on every November. I've attempted the challenge every year since 2006, and completed it every year since 2008. I've been an ML for three years (including this one) and I actively try to … Continue reading November is Coming…
