Holidays are busy times around here. Both mine and Lucas’ family live in the area, so we usually spend time with both. It’s a lot of planning and running around, but totally worth it! ^-^ I’m sure you are all busy as well, but I just wanted to write a little note to say, “Happy Easter!”
No matter how we celebrate, Easter is about life, hope, renewal, and rebirth. It is the triumph over the cold hand of death. There’s so much joy in it. I think that’s why it is one of my very favorite holidays. Also, so many flowers!
Anyhow, I hope your day is blessed and wonderful. ^-^
Oh, and I will be posting more research results soon. I’ve been learning a lot about sending out manuscripts. ^-^

It was first written as part of a long and ridiculous poem called, ‘The Ballad of Gentana Lasleen’.
Intrigued perhaps? Well, I will not be posting Gentana’s Ballad at the moment, but I will write you a little story about it. Continue reading →
Every year around this time I see a lot of articles pop up about National Novel Writing Month. If you don’t know what that is… well, I mean really I have no words because it’s pretty self explanatory actually. Since this year I have a shiny new blog, I thought it would be appropriate to get in on the fun. This won’t be a post about NaNoWriMo tips and tricks, but rather a quick note about my own plans and goals for this year. Continue reading →
