Just Keep Typing #IWSG

After a fun stint of troubleshooting a 403 error this morning (yay for corrupt .htaccess files), I finally have my site up and running so that I can actually post for the Insecure Writer’s Support Group. Thank you Raimey Gallant for catching that for me! If you saw my post last week, you know that…

Eight Years #ParentLife

Eight years ago, something special happened. My daughter was born. It’s a bit of a shock to think about it. I mean, EIGHT YEARS. How can time fly by so darn quickly? One moment, I’m cradling an infant and next I’ve got a girl who is at the right height to act as an armrest…

Better Than Now #YA #BookRelease

I can’t remember when I first came across C.G. Coppola, but she intrigued me from the start. For one, she used ninja in her since-retitled blog name. I mean, c’mon, how could I not be interested?

Girl Scouts, ballet, gymnastics, knitting, wire-working… Eventually, my love of the activity fades and I leave it by the wayside. Thankfully, that hasn’t been the case with drawing (or writing for that matter). Back in…

Holiday from Insecurity #IWSG

Since tomorrow is a holiday for us in the USA, Insecure Writer’s Support Group posting has been bumped forward a day. So you get a post today, while tomorrow I’ll be hanging with my kids out in the heat, ignoring all things digital. What makes me insecure this month? Actually, nothing comes to mind. I…

Mid-Year Progress Check

Can you believe June is almost over? My husband and I celebrated our 12th anniversary on Sunday. We were lucky enough that my sis-in-law was willing to watch the kids for us after she got off work, because we completely forgot to plan anything. I’d even forgotten about our anniversary until my daughter asked me…
