Hey, Bartender…

It’s Friday night and the tab’s open. Like real-life humans, my fictional characters drink, particularly in my adult fiction novel, Porcelain. I would think it’s dishonest to suggest that adults enjoy delicious elixirs as they stir chaos and tension. You need proper libations to do half of the ill-fated actions I write. So, as I […]

I’ve Got Two Stories and I’m Not Ashamed. (M.A.I.A. #2)

…and I love them both the same. I’m writing two stories at the same time and I’m utterly nuts for attempting such a feat. Well, technically, I’m editing one story (and of course, writing’s involved) while I’m opening a Pandora’s Box of new miseries and joys because I’m writing a brand-new story. Crazy? Probably. Doable?

It’s a Wrap! January Edition

I no longer plan what I read by month as I’m more of a mood reader. If a book strikes me, boom, I’m in the mood to read it. So, planning a to-be-read (TBR) list, like many book bloggers and vloggers, feels like a chore. Besides, when I did plan by month, most of the […]

Love, Peace, and Book Challenges

Book challenges. From Popsugar.com to Book Riot’s Read Harder, there’s one for any bibliophile willing to invest time, money, and/or energy into completing them. I adore them. To track my books, I use Goodreads. However… I like variety. So, I’ll share a secret. I do not follow a reading challenge to the tee. I tend to take reading prompts […]

New Year…New Happenings!

2019’s here and I’m ready for it. Yes. I made resolutions and yes, I do intend to keep them. They’re pretty standard.  Lose thirty pounds. Nice round number. Feasible. Doable. Happening. Finish my long-drawn writing project, Porcelain. Get ‘er done. NOW! Start my new writing project, tentatively titled Cornflakes.  Learn to love querying. Learn to […]

Someday…

Someday I will run away leaving small things behind until they become smaller than dust underneath moonlight. Some night I will walk this Earth meandering until I find paths my toes will tiptoe until they bleed from the satisfaction of finding my home. For now, I smirk at plans no one else sees and no […]

October Blog Tag

Normally, book and writing tags grab my attention. However, since I’m dealing with a blog slump, why not do a blog tag to boost my morale until this ridiculousness passes its course? I found this one via Life by Sunburnt Aloe who found it through Jemma @Dorkface. Enjoy! Name? Latanya (or Livey) What is your favourite colour? Give […]
