Linkspam: Home Sweet Home
Flower printables for DIY framed art

I had a lot of grand plans for December. Updating the blog twice a week, working on query letter drafts and novel drafts, keeping my apartment tidy for a change. Except everything changed. My partner and I bought a house. It’s been a lot of highs, and lows, and stress, and anxiety, and there have […]

The Inevitable NaNoWriMo Hangover
NaNoWriMo 2014 Winner

The problem with November* is that it’s dark. It gets dark early, it stays dark late, and it’s just a mess of gloominess in that too-brief between, all punctuated by a few vaguely sunshiney days and the first flurries of the year. For a writer in the northern hemisphere — particularly one who suffers from […]

I Don’t Even.

Holy crow, where the eff did 2013 go?! I know, it’s lame of me to pretend I didn’t notice the year going by. One moment, it was a scalding summer spent in my new apartment, the next it was … Why is it -20°C outside and still snowing?!

I intended on writing this post much sooner than I am, but due to the excruciating heat and humidity plaguing Nova Scotia this week, it just hasn’t happened. It’s too hot and gross to think.

Music | One of my favourite musical artists of all time, Poe, recently posted a few clips to YouTube and PTCH, revealing that new music could be in the works after eight years of silence. The following is short, but very haunting: Writing | Brain Pickings‘s post on The Daily Routines of Famous Writers is […]

Writing Diary | In Which Ley Writes Books & Then Rambles About Them

I wrote a book. Back in late summer 2012, my life went through some changes. My Diablo III buddy stopped playing, so suddenly all those hours spent dungeon-crawling (or chatting in tiny boxes while my character shifted from foot to foot on screen) ended. We had almost beat the game on Inferno mode too. What […]

Pin ALL The Things!

Follow my blog with Bloglovin So, I do have plans on entirely reorganizing my blog and having regular scheduled posts, but I haven’t had a spare second to do so thanks to six days of work, one day off, and then right back into the working thing. But I’ll get there. I swear. Ley has […]
