March 2018 Dares

march 2018 dares

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. 😉

Some Random Reveries: February 2018

Some Random Reveries

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 …

February 2018 Dares

February2018 Dares

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 …

Finishing The Chronicles of Alice and Ivy

Finishing The Chronicles of Alice and Ivy

This was a post I planned for just before the 12 Days of Christmas party, but I ended up doing other post and saving this one until later and whoosh! It’s January!

In this post I’ll be talking about my plans for finishing off the rather long and complicated series that The Chronicles of Alice and Ivy is … and how a small, over-achieving bit of me wants to do that this year.

(Also, before I forget, HAPPY NEW YEAR MA PEEPS. I hope 2018 is an amazing year for you! God bless!)

How 2018 Will (Hopefully) Go

how 2018 will hopefully go

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.

Update #3 + We Need You Questions! (again)

Update 3 + We Need Questions Again!

Happy Wednesday, people reading this post (even if you’re not reading it on Wednesday)!

Yes, this is another post that’s getting out a wee bit late. Well, if you’re not in Pacific time (which most people I know online aren’t for whatever reason). Here, it’s not that late. (Or at least I don’t think so; any time before eleven is early morning to me …)

We’re halfway through the months of November … but I haven’t reached halfway with my novel.

Nope, I’m not behind (I actually have 28,631 – haven’t written yet today, though), but I don’t feel that I’ve reached the midpoint of my novel. I … guess it’s gonna be a bit longer? No problem there. 🙂


Why I Do Halloween

Why I Do Halloween

*deep breath* Okay. Here we go.

I know I’m going to offend a lot of my Christian friends. I might even lose some followers over it. But I feel a need to summarize all my thoughts on the subject into one, organized whole and present it up to my Christian peers (probably to be slaughtered, but oh well).

Recently, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking on Halloween. Why do I dress up and eat candy, even though many Christians say it’s evil? I decided to dig deep and figure out my reasons.

A Quick Update from a Flustered Writer

a quick update from a flustered writer

I can see your skepticism when you read the title. You’re giving me the ol’ skeptical eye again.

Flustered? you say. Girl. You are sixteen. You need to clillax. The world will take care of itself …

NO IT WON’T. THE WORLD NEEDS ME TO MANAGE IT. The world is practically helpless without my guidance. I’m just surprised it survived 6,000 years without me. Thankfully, I’m here, and the world can chillax. However, the Keeper of the World cannot rest.

Two Years and a Day

Two Years and a day

As of yesterday, I’ve been blogging for two years.

And, in the general scheme of things, two years isn’t a long time. However, in the general scheme of blogging … well, as a non-professional blogger, that’s semi-long, right? Right? (Oh, who cares what you think. It feels like a long time to me. Who are you to hold my self-worth in the balance?)

Since my first post, I’ve come a long way. More specifically, I’ve come a long way since my first posts, which were all pretty awful.

When I started Reveries, I didn’t really expect to use it as anything more than … well, an advertising venue, if you will. However, I’ve really come to care about blogging, and so … here I am. Not dead yet. Just give it some time.
