As bloggers, sometimes we’re overflowing with creativity. But other times? Well, not so much. I go back and forth between being super excited about blogging … and just wanting to throw the towel in on the whole thing.
But you know what? My mama didn’t raise no quitter … and neither did she raise someone who doesn’t milk every opportunity for a blog post for what it’s worth.
(Actually, I think I came up with the latter by myself, but whatevs.)
I’m currently going through a period of blogger depression. But instead of letting it get to me, I’m writing this blog post!* Without further ado, here are my tips for blog-inspiration-flowing-ness!
*The fact that I’m currently uninspired might make me unqualified for the topic, but let’s not talk about that. Let’s talk about HOW AMAZING I AM. #amazingkell

Well … that month flew by! And I say that practically every month, but this time it was true because there are only twenty-eight days in February (takes me by surprise every time) so the month did fly by.
Literally. It was flying past my window the other night, and I was like, “Feb … where ya goin’, man?” And Feb said, “I’m leaving this place! I’m sick of the in-between-ish weather and the corny Valentine’s lines.” #TrueStory
February was actually a fairly productive month for me … but you might not know it by looking at my dares since there’s a lot of red. (But hey, Valentine’s = red so I had to stick with the theme.) Hopefully March will be just as productive – and a bit more organized. 😉

I’ve decided that every month I need to set aside some time on this blog to just talk. Talk about my life. Talk about thoughts I’ve had. Just let myself ramble.
(It’s gonna be super boring.) (There are some GIFs, though, so you might want to hang around.)
This blog is, after all, my ‘reveries.’ But how few reveries do I truly post on it? After all, ‘reveries’ are far from professional, and I try to be as professional as I can be. However, I’m not really the ‘professional’ type.
I mean, I’m very professional when it comes to certain things (blame my parents*), but … blogging doesn’t have to be one of those things? And I don’t know why I’ve been taking it so seriously because it is supposed to be fun!
*it actually has nothing to do with my parents, but they are convenient scapegoats for basically anything. Including the lack of icecream in this house. Though that is kinda their fault …

Today it’s time for the sixth and final in a series of writing challenges in the Ardent Author’s Writing Challenge, hosted by Zielle at My Homeschool Notebook.
As I’ve said before, this is the final challenge … and though it’s nice to see a conclusion to something like this (as well as my story for this particular challenge, The Marvelous Machine), I will miss it! (This entry is gonna be a wacky one, by the way.)
Team Forest is in second place, and this round offers some major point boosters, so we can definitely fix this! Write, write, write!
Note: there are some important announcements at the end of this post! Be sure to check them out. 🙂

I’ve heard people say that reading fictional stories is a waste of time, and I wanted to point out why this is not true.
However, it was simply too big a subject for me! Books have taught me certain lessons … but they’ve taught other people completely different things. And I hate to narrow this broad subject down to just my opinions and experiences!
So, through Google Forms, I asked a variety of readers from social media the following questions: What does reading mean to you? How have novels helped you in your life? Why are they worth something to you?
Here are their responses.

Guess what? It’s already the last day of January! Isn’t that beyond unbelievable? Why, I remember December 31st like it was yesterday. *ripple dissolve*
Seriously, though, folks. I’m excited for February!* I don’t have a lot of great plans for the month, but I’m glad to be starting anew. A lot of things about January didn’t turn out the way I’d planned, so … yep. New beginnings are good!
But … don’t get me wrong! There were good – great – things about January. Let’s review them now!
*as excited for the rain-and-clouds month as one can possibly be …

Today it’s time for the fourth in a series of writing challenges in the Ardent Author’s Writing Challenge, hosted by the incomparable Zielle at My Homeschool Notebook.
Like other writing challenges which I have participated in, I will be posting my entries on this blog, and … I may not always stick to the schedule. Like today. Which is Sunday.
Team Forest is behind, but we can fix this! Write, write, write! *glares at all the other teams*

Hiya, ladies and gents! Today I’m here to tell you how how to turn your plot bunny into a story (courtesy of me thinking about this a lot because that’s what I’m currently doing).
Now, I’m by no means an expert, but I do believe I can offer some advice based on my personal experience, and I’d love to hear your own tricks & tips in the comments!*
So, without further ado, let’s launch into the post!
*not that I’ll actually take your advice. #stubborn

That’s right! The short story sequel to The Lady of the Vineyard, Flowers, is now published on Amazon Kindle! You can read more about Flowers on my website. I made a whole page for it and everything. 😛
By the way, my website was recently redone by Mukta of Design Pique Studios. It is absolutely lovely. Thank you so much, Mukta! ❤
And … that is really all I have to say. So, yes, this is an unbelievably short post, but you must forgive me. That is truly all I have to say.
Until next week,

Hello Ladies and Gents! It’s finally time to list my goals for the New Year (as well as my January 2018 Dares). Are you as pumped for 2018 as I am?!
However, before we begin, I’d like to invite you to beta-read At Her Fingertips! I talked about this at the end of the last post and gave more details. You can sign up using this form. The signups will be open until mid-January though beta-reading will begin as soon as I rewrite one last scene! (So pretty soon!)
Also, sorry for this post being a little late! I’m sick, and I just haven’t been able to pull myself away from editing At Her Fingertips, to be honest. And I have a couple other projects I want to finish before the New Year, sooo … yep.
