The Shortest Month Always Seems the Longest

The Shortest Month Always Seems the Longest

February is the shortest month, and where we are in Central New York, it also ends up feeling like the coldest. Meterologically speaking, I don’t know if this is the case, but after four months of the cold and white stuff falling from the sky, it freaking feels like the cold has settled in my bones and will never leave. And even though it is short, I feel like I have to pack in a million things into it. Thankfully…

Weekend at Thistle Dew

Weekend at Thistle Dew

As I write this blog I’m sitting in a home, much of which was built sometime in the early 1800s. It’s set on 300 acres in the foothills of the Adirondack mountains, in Remsen, New York. Wolfka, the friendliest dog in quite possibly the entire world, is curled up somewhere, probably at the feet, or near the feet of, a busy writer who is tapping away at their keyboard. Writers are writing in the Adirondack room, and others are sitting…

January Romance-o-poly

I’m a few days late on my January Romance-o-poly round-up. After a super busy week last week that lasted in to the weekend, I got behind.

Reading and Writing Round-Up: January 2019

Reading and Writing Round-Up: January 2019

January 2019 was approximately 9074 days long and I am so glad it’s finally over. But depsite all the chaos I’ve been making significant progress on my writing projects, and in my reading, including my progress in the Romanceopoly Reading Challenge. I’ve even watched some Netflix, which doesn’t happen often. It was nice to have some fun, creative downtime, in addition to the “work” creativity I was doing. Writing I wrote a lot this month. While I’ve mainly been in revision…

2019 Reading Challenge: #Romanceopoly

2019 Reading Challenge: #Romanceopoly

One of the things I’ve missed about blogging and reading more is having fun challenges to do throughout the year. I used to do them all the time on Goodreads and had shelves of different challenges or I’d be doing challenges in the groups I was in. I wouldn’t always finish, but they kept me motivated to keep reading and get through the mountains of to-be-read books. Last July, when I went to my first RWA Conference I came home…
