Helloo! Happy Autumn, or if you’re in the UK like I am, happy fog!

Basically, if you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to live in the UK and haven’t watched Monty Python and the Holy Grail a thousand times like I have, here you go:

Except we don’t usually get the summer bit 😉

Anyhow, it’s been awhile since I’ve blogged for two reasons:

1) I’ve been to the States twice since August, and up to Scotland shortly after, so I’ve had little time to write let alone blog *about* writing.

2) As much as I love reading all the wonderful content out there, not just about writing but about people’s lives, their adventures, their struggles, how they handle and overcome those struggles, most of the time I don’t feel a great need to blog about my own.

When I do, I post something, but lately I feel strongly that what I add to the bulging-at-the-seams interwebz needs to be meaningful, even if just in a small way. I don’t want to post about how much I wrote or didn’t if it doesn’t matter to anyone but me. I guess I don’t know exactly what my blog should include at this point, but along with the updates I share with #WIPMarathon and other writer buddies, I want it to say *something*, even if it’s just, “This is what I learned this month.”

Which brings me to this post’s point. Yesterday I read about Essena O’Neill‘s departure from social media Continue reading “Unsocial Media”

Okay, I’ve been tinkering with this for ages and making endless changes, and now I’ve decided the most likely way I’ll ever stick to a blog is by not overcommitting, which has long been one of my unfortunate traits (thanks to being a people-pleaser to a fault and to the detriment of my own sanity, a trait I’m trying hard to eradicate as we speak).

That means 1) keeping it as concise as possible, 2) not expecting to be on here every day (once a week is more like it), and 3) instead of having separate professional and personal websites, I’ve decided on just one.

I’m a fiction writer focused on publication and growth as I come to terms with where my amazing journey has brought me and where it’s taking me, one day at a time. I’m likely to be posting photos, links, quotes, and posts about being an American in the UK. And lots about writing. Lots and lots. So many blogs out there have been helping me on my journey as a writer, so rather than trying to compete with them (when so many people do it so well already, and I’d rather spend the majority of my time writing rather than writing ABOUT writing), I’ll just give them love by sending you to them 🙂
