The Great Art Metamorphosis // how my drawings have changed over the years

Hello, folks! The other day, I decided to flip through an old sketch book of mine, one from aaaaaall the way back when I first got serious about drawing, dated 2014. The result?

The Road to Graduation // and other frightening tales of social phobia

Y'know, after a two-month break from blogging, you think I’d be more prepared for my return post. As it is, I only finished this an hour ago. So hello, everyone! I'm back. How's your month going? Hopefully better than mine. After being away for so long, I wish I could give you a proper hello [...]

An Entrance and an Exit // life + camp nano + another hiatus + other such paraphernalia

*casually slinks in* Did you miss me? (If not, please go away.) Yes, 'tis I, returned from the void of... everything. And boy howdy, do I have stories to tell!

10 Reasons You Definitely Should NOT Become an Author // and an important announcement

Once upon a time, my life was simple.

5 Reasons Camp NaNoWriMo is Worth It // aka shameless self-advertising for my cabin

Camp NaNoWriMo is just around the corner, and if you’re anything like me, you’re staring blankly at your computer screen and wondering how on earth you’ll scrape together the time (let alone the CREATIVE ENERGY) to participate.

The 20 Questions Book Tag // in which my inner book-dragon emerges

Hello, minions! It seems a little boring to start things off by declaring "I'VE BEEN TAGGED," but... I mean... I've been tagged. By Kinsey @Over the Withers, to be precise, and with the 20 Questions Book Tag. Which means I've been given free license to scream about books for the next 7.2 minutes of your [...]
