Vacation? Never Heard Of It…

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…

It’s Going to be Okay

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

May Day, Mayday!

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.

Update on the State of the Rion

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

November is Coming…

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…
