Life Update

Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve posted here! I just wanted to pop in to say that, yes, I’m still alive, and will be returning to the blogging world soon! I have had a crazy past six months, with a lot of big changes in my life, and more to come. But I will be returning to social media in a few weeks, and I’m hoping to be more regular online.

I will also be getting back into writing. I will be working on revising the first draft of Something More and starting Book Two! I’m really excited for this, and I’ll keep you posted on my progress with both of those!

Have a lovely Spring!

Irony

I recently found this awesome blog post by Jim Butcher on NaNoWriMo’s Young Writers Program website. I think it is quite possibly the best post on writing that I have ever read. And it is a brilliant example of what I had just read in school about the use of irony in writing.

Beware, sweet, innocent, aspiring writer. People aren’t telling you this, and they should be. NaNoWriMo participants are being deceived into thinking that being an author is a good thing. But you don’t know. You don’t know the horrors you might face as a professional, published, full-time author.

The best part about this post is that it is actually inspiring! It encouraged me to go forth and write! 🙂

You cannot know the horrors you will face! Run! Flee! Turn aside from this dark road!

For if you do not, I fear that one day, you will find yourself writing with other damned souls like me.

Who knows? Maybe I will!
