    Hotel Life & Shopping For Stuff

    So, I’ve been in hotels for two and a half weeks now. I say hotels because the first one was driving me kind of batty. I wasn’t trying to be a pampered diva, but between it being right in front of the interstate, the internet not working most of the time, and the super loud noises coming from the air conditioner, pipes, and refrigerator (like a persistent LOUD buzzing that lasted for hours at a time), I was feeling pretty stressed. On top of that, the bed wasn’t comfortable, and most nights, in the middle of the night, people would be out in the hallway fighting. And also, it wasn’t…

    More Adventures In House Hunting

    We close on the townhouse tomorrow. I’m currently typing this in a hotel room, my temporary housing, and there are updates! As of Monday, I have a paved driveway, cabinets, vinyl flooring in the laundry room and bathrooms, and beautiful, beautiful paint! See pictures!! I’m so in love with the aqua. 😀 It’s called Serendipity. ^_^ The gray color is called Elemental. Look at how the aqua pops from the living room! The left picture is the Library/Office, and my bedroom is also that color. Right picture is the living room. I went to the paint store already knowing what I wanted, so the goal was to find the closest…

    Adventures In House Hunting

    I didn’t post last week because I was a stress ball, but I have updates!! 😀 First, I’m moving out in less than two weeks, and I’m going to be displaced for a few weeks after, but I’ve already made arrangements, so while there is still stress, there’s not as much as there was. Second, I made an offer the day after my last post. I saw a total of nine houses over 3 days. I probably wouldn’t have looked at so many if I knew exactly what I wanted, but I wasn’t settled on anything. For example, I had a few things I considered deal breakers, but I still…

    Poetry and Such

    GUYS! 😀 I has news! …kinda, sorta, whatever, dontlookatme. >.< So, you may or may not know that around two and a half years ago I had half a mind to publish a book of poems. I never set a deadline for this project, and it was quite easy to push aside, but I did expect to publish it one day. And well…I’m crazy close to my goal. As of this posting, I have the 100 or so poems I wanted, and I don’t know if they’ll all make the final cut, but I’m trying not to be paranoid about it. If I cut something, I want it to be because…

    Release Day Party: House of Falling Embers :D

    GUYS!!! I’m so excited to have another book releasing out into the world today!! ^_^ All the information and links and such will be down below. In the meantime, I wanted to chat about the Creative Well, because my birthday book was born out of an overflowing creative river, so it’s totally appropriate. 😀 The well or river or whatever you want to call it is like the energy source for a writer, right? We fill it with books we love and awesome movies and tv shows, and when it’s overflowing, words are everywhere! But if we don’t fill it with the right fuel, the muse is moody – or gone…
