Linkspam: Home Sweet Home
I Don’t Even.
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 […]
Linkspam: Moving Days Edition
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?!
Pin ALL The Things!
Moving is hard. There’s a lot of putting your life into boxes, carting them elsewhere, and then unpacking them and trying to find new places to store them. Life has been hectic, and so my blogging isn’t quite as regular as I hoped it would be. I’m also posting this on entirely the wrong day. […]
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 […]
On Winning NaNoWriMo 2011, & Why I’ve Been Too Afraid To Blog
Oh geez, I updated WordPress and now I don’t know where anything is, and weird messages keep popping out at me. I’m scared, guys. I’m scared. This is just a random message to let you know I am still alive. 2012 has arrived. We’re almost midway through January, and what do I have to show […]
On Idols … & Not Meeting Them
As you may notice if you scroll down, there was a huge, inexplicable gap in blog entries beginning around the time I announced that I would, in fact, be partaking in NaNoWriMo this year. A lot of it had to do with planning the novel in question. I had hoped to document my pre-novel process, […]
Camp NaNoWriMo Report #2
My uncle Gary came to visit from the faraway lands of Vancouver. When my mother mentioned this to me, she continued to add that she had a book for me from him. An advance uncorrected proof of Cory Doctorow’s latest book. That Gary had received from a writer friend of his, William Gibson. Needless to […]
That Reinvention I Promised
So, this is a sorta embarrassing post. For my second NaNoWriMo in a row, Stressful Real Life Things have ruined my routine. In the case of last November, the Stressful Real Life Thing (or SRLT) occurred towards the beginning of the month, and I was never able to get back on track. In the case […]
After a year of no blogging, I finally sat myself down to begin the task of renovating my blog. All my old posts have been erased (including some favourites — such as the Cupcakeathon 2010 entry, detailing my first foray into baking cupcakes. sniff. so much happy), the layout is tidier, the colours are less […]
