RTW: Your Dream Retreat

This Week’s Topic–from yahighway Describe your dream writing retreat. Where would you go? Who and what would you bring? There are lots of places I’d love to go to, but only one that’s feels other worldly to me: The Galapagos Islands. Here’s an island full of exotic creatures and clear blue water.

So it begins

Today officially kicks off NaNoWro! I almost didn’t write…I was on a plane flying back home and in the middle of reading an amazing romantic fairytale of a book–The Amaranth Enchantment–and only a few chapters away from the end.

Using Video Games To Write

I’m a gamer. Always have been, always will be. My biggest problem today? Fitting gaming into my busy schedule. Sure I could come home from work, not cook and clean, or write and just spend endless hours getting shot in COD, but what kind of mother/wife would I be? And forget ever getting published. Since […]

Life of a Blog

Artist-Cory Alexander Tilton When I started this blog, it was focused on gaming. It’s my first one, and I’m slowly learning the inner workings of it.
