~ Manuscript Monday ~

While I was procrastinating on Youtube on Saturday afternoon instead of working on my rewrites for Queen of Hearts, I came across a newish segment where authors talk about their manuscript - what it's about, where they're at. I think it's such a good idea! I love hearing about other writers' works in progress and processes. I … Continue reading ~ Manuscript Monday ~

As someone who loves making lists for almost everything, and comes up with a minute by minute 'plan of attack' for even the simplest tasks, bullet journalling seemed perfect … Continue reading World, meet BuJo.
