home // island living, II

I remember hours spent cowering in corners, hiding futilely from the waves, battered to and fro by sprays of saltwater that felt like curses. Slipping away from the storms and trying to be safe but never, never able to.  Now I’m here on my own and the feeling of safety is pervasive all around me. Continue reading “home // island living, II”

shipwreck // island living, I

When the sailboat’s hull scrapes on the sandbar, all I can think is finally. Finally.  Finally I have managed to sail my vessel straight to the island I always wanted to be on. At last I am grounded, marooned, isolated. I am truly alone.  I hear the ugly sound of sand on wood, the creakingContinue reading “shipwreck // island living, I”

looking back at my book // a glimpse into Remnant’s earlier incarnations, with much laughter

Hello hello, friends (and strangers)! I wrote this post a long while ago. It was inspired by Sarah Baran (aka The Sarcastic Elf). I highly encourage you to check out her blog if you enjoy mine (or even if you don’t). Crazy homeschooled fantasy writers are the best. Especially if sarcasm is involved. As theContinue reading “looking back at my book // a glimpse into Remnant’s earlier incarnations, with much laughter”

flotsam and jetsam | 6 (Camp NaNo + mini book reviews + some updates)

How are you all, my friends? Quarantine in Michigan has been extended until at least May 28 (I think) and my musical has been officially canceled, so I’m still at home, still reading and writing and taking walks and wishing I could go places. I miss normal life. But enough about my woes. Despite theContinue reading “flotsam and jetsam | 6 (Camp NaNo + mini book reviews + some updates)”

flotsam & jetsam | 5

Hello, all! At this point, you probably know what my flotsam and jetsam posts look like. (If you don’t, read some old ones.) I’ve got a lot of random things to write about today. Lent & Easter Lent is the season leading up to Easter, during which many Christians remember Jesus’ suffering by fasting, readingContinue reading “flotsam & jetsam | 5”

Camp NaNo 2020, days 2-4

As you can see, posting every day is not happening. This is for two reasons. The first: I don’t want to share everything I write this month because I have a feeling I may want to publish some of it, use it in a current novel, or something of the sort. The second: I simplyContinue reading “Camp NaNo 2020, days 2-4”

Camp NaNo 2020, 1 // golden + Aionladon in a cell

Hello, my friends! This year is my first time participating in Camp NaNoWriMo! I’m handwriting (just like I did for NaNo) and my goal is 20k words. I’ll be writing one poem a day (based on Lemon’s prompts) and also working on some story ideas: one called “Darius Raven,” a few inspired by the NewContinue reading “Camp NaNo 2020, 1 // golden + Aionladon in a cell”

sail home someday // a short story (+ Dust by Kara Swanson!)

Hello, my friends! As a member of the street team for Kara Swanson’s new book Dust, I get the awesome opportunity to share Lorie Langdon’s endorsement of it. Lorie Langdon is the author of Olivia Twist and the Doon series, and she loves Kara’s book!⁣⁣ If you’re a Peter Pan fan who enjoys unique takes on classic fairytales,Continue reading “sail home someday // a short story (+ Dust by Kara Swanson!)”

I am no dude // a short inspired by LOTR

Hello, my friends! I wrote this short script many years ago, in a slightly different format. Since I won’t be making it into a video anytime soon, I’m sharing it with you now. It’s different than most of what I usually post here, but it’s too amusing to keep it to myself. Enjoy! (P.S. ThisContinue reading “I am no dude // a short inspired by LOTR”

flotsam and jetsam | 3

Hello, friends! I’ve taken an unintentional blogging break since Christmastime, and it’s likely to extend for a while (because I have SCHOOL), but I have a few things I’d like to share with you today. So welcome to flotsam and jetsam #3. First: voting is open for the Best of 2019 Blogging Awards, hosted byContinue reading “flotsam and jetsam | 3”
