Where Do You See the Best of Humanity?

I decided to pull a few prompts from these cards, and should inspiration strike, write a post on one. Obviously one sparked an idea, or this would be the shortest post ever. But before I get to the topic at hand, allow me to share the three possibilities. Judging from the title, you can probably…

Belts, Books, and Betas, Oh My!

A critique partner messaged me a couple of days ago. Great questions! Lots of things are happening, and I thought a quick update post was in order so those thinking I went *poof* is limited. And to start things off… 1. Belts What do belts have to do with authoring, you may ask. The answer is…

Did Your Dream Job Come True?

Time for another entry prompted by these journal cards. As usual, I picked three randomly and one of those gets the full blog treatment.

Why Do Women Need Their Own Day?

Today is International Women’s Day, and I hadn’t planned on writing anything specifically on this topic, but then two things happened.
