    Top Secret Project News ๐Ÿ‘€

    Haha. So…I’m thinking about doing something crazy! So…let’s maybe talk about it a little bit? Hmm? We all know I’m not writing books right now. It’s not a book project or a book-like project, i.e. a novel, a novella, a short story, a novel in verse, whatever. I’ve mentioned a few times how one of my hobbies is songwriting. For years, I’ve been wanting to put more of my lyrics to music. It’s fun to sit down at the keyboard and play something and sing. As a stroke of good fortune, or a sign from the universe, just as I’m heading into the last month of my Masterclass subscription, a…

    Creative Project Hour

    Bullet journaling isn’t quite for me, but I still love watching bullet journal videos. I’ve especially been drawn to reading-related bullet journals. They can get really elaborate! Painting, calligraphy, etc. It puts my reading notebook to shame! Which to date, has literally just been a list of books I’m planning on reading each month. When I do read the books I picked out, it’s pretty because I use different colored pens, but it’s also very unexciting. When I don’t read those books, I end up making a HUGE mess trying to write in the books I did read. For next year, I wanted to do something more exciting.ย Since I didn’t…

    Random Life: Bookish Chat

    Hi! Welcome. I’m going to be a little random today. ^_^ I’m still working on getting some miscellaneous things organized, but my office is almost done, what I’m calling the art room is almost done, and I have a pile of random stuff in the kitchen and one more picture to hang, that I need a frame for, and then I’ll be done! I cannot wait. I’m used to having clutter on my dining table, so it isn’t really bothering me, but I still want to clear it off. For some reason I really want September to be over. I just feel like it’s lasting forever. Am I the only…

    Getting My TBR Under Control

    The Goodreads TBR is not a reflection of all the books on my TBR. It’s only a reflection of books on my TBR that I don’t own. I figured, if I own the book, I should remember to read it. That helped with a fraction of the list. As of writing this, my Goodreads TBR is 174, down from 479. Like, can a girl get a high five or something?! ๐Ÿ˜€ After deleting all the books I own on a physical or digital shelf, except one, for nonsense reasons, I opened nearly every single other book and skimmed the blurb. Yes, this took days, but like I said in my…

    Random Writing Thoughts

    Hello! ^_^ In my entire life, I have never failed to finish a project I wanted to finish. Never. In my life. And it’s probably because I sometimes force myself to sit down and write. If I’m on the “right” project I don’t have to force the writing, but I often have to force myself to sit down and do it, or it just doesn’t get done. Part of how I keep up with things is with a planner. Sometimes, having a long to-do list stresses me out, until I remember that it’s self-imposed, and I don’t actually have to do any of it. But I’ve been going back and…
