Summer Goals Book Tag

Here’s the thing.

I took the summer off work to write 3 books and read 1000 books and travel everywhere and of course like always I set myself WAY TOO MANY GOALS AND I’M SLIGHTLY FREAKING OUT BECAUSE GUYS, JULY IS ALMOST OVER?

How?

Why?

Really how?

So I figured the best thing to do would be to play a game and pretend everything is all right. (I live in constant denial. Cheers to that.) Continue reading “Summer Goals Book Tag”

something good

i think of summers so free and wild i couldn’t hold it in

i acted precisely as i felt the second i felt it

and i never gave a damn

what they might think of me

 

i loved the absolute knowledge i bathed in

that wherever i spent the night escaping

fuzzy drinking madly dancing

i could end up in your arms

and they’d be warm and open Continue reading “something good”

March Wrap-up

It was SO time that winter got the hell out of my life because I’ve been stuck with a cold for half of March and it’s STILL going on, peops. I was exhausted all month so I read very little and wrote even less and omg MARCH SUCKS.

Hello, April, bring me sun and don’t be an asshole, like your brother, thanks.

So here’s what I read in March: Continue reading “March Wrap-up”

February Wrap-Up

Goals achieved:

  1. Read 5 books, including one in Spanish??? (feeling smart)
  2. Edited my manuscript Devonna and sent it to my agent (feeling awesome, and nervous AF what is this new life of mine?)
  3. Edited half of my other manuscript I’m writing in French (because who needs a social life? me. definitely me.)
  4. WENT ROCK-CLIMBING TWICE EVEN THOUGH I’M TERRIFIED OF IT AND THE OPPOSITE OF STRONG (feeling like a freaking ninja)
  5. Reached 1,000 followers on AWA (feeling proud)
  6. Put my flat on Airbnb to fund my next trip to Asia (feeling overwhelmed; I was not expecting that many reservations and requests in less than a week and this to become a second full-time job, but oh well, as I said, who needs a social life anyway? ME. OH MY GOD ALL THE WAY ME.)

My 5 (Unusual) Travel Goals of 2019

Almost two months into 2019, and I still haven’t had time to really sit down and plan out where I want to go this year. (AND PLANNING IS LITERALLY MY PASSION SO THIS IS PROOF LIFE HAS BEEN BUSY AF PEOPLE.)

7 Lines from my WIP

I felt like sharing some of my favorite lines from my story Dean & Lily! Even though I’ve postponed the release of Season 2 because I got an agent (bragging) and I’m focussing on another manuscript (busy busy), I’m still in the middle of writing and editing seasons 3 to 5 and the characters keep haunting me on a daily basis (help, plis). 

So I thought I’d give them some attention and let them speak today. Here are 7 snippets from various seasons of Dean & Lily:

ONE

Dean drags me into a dark boutique, hides us inside a changing room, and grabs my face with one firm hand. That’s when I realize I’m hyperventilating.

“Hey, hey, look at me.”

I shake my head, panting. “I don’t want to be holding a gun.”
