So Little Time

In past weeks, I have struggled with what to say. This week, there is so much I want to say. I’ve now hit 65k+ on my NaNo novel. The monastery was invaded. Instead of taking the place over, the invaders “just want to talk”. The invaders have been distracted by an uprising, an uprising started […]

Everyday Mystics

It’s November and that means NaNoWriMo. This happens every year. For the next few weeks, my spiritual world will be consumed by the novel I am writing. The lines will get blurry between “fantasy” and “reality”. I know the difference, but my emotions don’t. As it should be. Right now, I’m working on my 2020 […]

IWSG: To NaNo or Not to NaNo

For this month’s IWSG, I’m writing ahead on November 1st as a break from my NaNoWriMo novel which has grabbed me around the neck. I am writing this post on just about 4 hours of sleep, writing in lieu of the midday nap I had planned due to lack of sleep because after writing my […]

IWSG: Working Writer

October 7 question – When you think of the term working writer, what does that look like to you? What do you think it is supposed to look like? Do you see yourself as a working writer or aspiring or hobbyist, and if latter two, what does that look like? This month’s Insecure Writer’s Support […]

IWSG: Truth Is…

It’s September – already – and the first Wednesday in September which means ISWG Day, the day when we come together and talk about writerly stuff. September 2 (optional) question: If you could choose one author, living or dead, to be your beta partner, who would it be and why? Haha, okay universe. This is […]

IWSG: Creative Infighting

August is here already! And it’s the first Wednesday in August which means ISWG Day, the day when us writers get together and compare writerly notes. To be honest, I have nothing much to say this month. I was thinking about skipping when I saw the optional question:  August 5 question – Quote: “Although I […]

IWSG: What happens in quarantine…..

…stays in quarantine. Seriously, what just happened? I will admit to nothing about the past few months other than being a little weirder than I usually am – which, admittedly, is pretty weird. That’s okay. I had a lot of alone time, and that gave me a chance to come to peace with things about […]

IWSG: Secrets Writers Keep

This is my monthly post for The Insecure Writer’s Support Group, where once a month we share secret details about our personal lives…? I see your prying question, cohosts  Pat Garcia, J.Q. Rose, and Natalie Aguirre! I will do my best to pretend to answer while revealing nothing. June 3 question – Writers have secrets! What are one […]

Pray Without Ceasing

I’m probably going to take a couple days off from public posting again, mostly because I spent most of the past few days working on this book until my brain ran out of thoughts. I wrote over 10,000 words, which is a lot even for me. When I type it out like that, I’m like […]

IWSG: Ritual

Like many people, I’m still adjusting to the reality that I’ve been stuck in my house for the past couple of months and … rituals have been hard to keep. This past week, I finally accepted that my “real/regular job” isn’t coming back any time in the foreseeable future. I started to do what I […]
