new moon writing goals

Okay, so TECHNICALLY the new moon of March was Wednesday, but I wanted to do a WWW Wednesday post, so I am writing a new moon-themed post today instead and counting it as still the new moon. Witches often practice different aspects of their craft based on the phase of the moon, because different phases […]

The Writer’s Tag

This tag was created by Lorraine and Ari. I’m breaking the rules a bit because I’m not answering all the questions. I also feel like a little bit of […]

my writing process so far

my writing process so far

Friends, it. Has. Happened. I kind of started writing a second draft of the half-novel I wrote for NaNoWriMo last year! I’ve talked about it a bit on the blog before as Queer Bookish Novel, as it is very queer and VERY bookish (the MC is a book blogger who is also a writer, and […]
