Storybooks

I am a book person. There are so many types of books in the world. Genres, lengths, for kids, for adults, and they can seriously be just about anything. Some books are too much alike and they blend in, and no one really pays them too much attention. Sure, they may sell a couple thousand … Continue reading

Word Count!

So, quick update. My capstone/novella for my final project for college has to be 40,000 words maximum. I have made myself a little meter thingie to keep tabs on hitting that 40k mark! I am 38% of the way through my story if I can make it all the way to 40,000 words!! Revelry is … Continue reading

Life Once A Day

In the past, I have made commitments to take a picture of something, anything, every day for three-hundred and sixty-five days. Usually around month four, I forget about it and abandon the project. But, I am here to say that I am going to give it another go. I won’t post the progress on here, … Continue reading

Why Good Titles Are Important

Read, Read, Read

I have two weeks until school starts. Can I get my summer back, please? Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed it overall, I just … Continue reading

The Playroom

I’m feeling both lazy and nostalgic tonight and in lieu of posting an entry on fame, I will be pulling out an essay I wrote for my autobiographical writing class. I never got a grade on it – because I had to drop the class for medical reasons – and I would like honest opinions … Continue reading

Where Are YOU From?

Where I work, a lot of people ask me where famous Oklahomans are from in Oklahoma. You’d think this would be a simple question with a simple answer, right? Wrong! A good example is Reba. Reba was born in a little place called Stringtown, Oklahoma and grew up in an even smaller place called Chockie, … Continue reading

Summer Daze

Wow. Wasn’t aware that it’s been so long since I’ve updated my blog. Between work and trying to relax this summer, I have lost track of time. Kind of have had a lot on my mind lately. My younger cousin that has read part of my book keeps pestering me and asking me if I … Continue reading
