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”

Crowning Heaven by Emily Hayse // cover reveal

Hello and welcome, friends! How has your week been so far? (We’ve only had two days. But still. Things may have happened to you.) On Monday, I started (will start, as I’m writing this on Sunday) a summer performing arts program. I’m learning to sing “Audition” from La La Land and I’m doing a scene from AContinue reading “Crowning Heaven by Emily Hayse // cover reveal”

Hello, my friends! Over the past couple of weeks, Kiki, Charis, and I have been reading through a ton of short stories (39. If I counted right). Thank you so much to everyone who entered!

judging books by their covers // in which I make ridiculous guesses + discover interesting books

Hello, my friends! Today I’m going to be stealing an idea from fellow blogger Jane Maree. I’m sure a lot of people have done this, but her blog was the first place I saw it. Basically, one picks covers of books one has not read, guesses what they will be about, then reads the actualContinue reading “judging books by their covers // in which I make ridiculous guesses + discover interesting books”

CONTEST ENDS 5/31 ~ a post by Kate

Hello, readers of Maya’s blog. You’re wondering why there’s a new post here, since she said she wouldn’t reappear until June 6. The answer: I’m not Maya, I’m Kate. If you haven’t had the chance to meet me yet, allow me to introduce myself. I’m human but I look like an elf and I’m Maya’sContinue reading “CONTEST ENDS 5/31 ~ a post by Kate”

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)”

1-year blog anniversary // in which I ramble and reminisce (+ an announcement)

As you can probably tell by the title of this post, I’ve been blogging (on this blog) for a year now. And it’s been such fun. I started this blog because I wanted to grow my platform as a writer, but I’ve kept it up because I enjoy writing posts, commenting on other people’s posts,Continue reading “1-year blog anniversary // in which I ramble and reminisce (+ an announcement)”

the mystery blogger award (again)

I was nominated for the mystery blogger award (again) (as the title says; see the first rendition here) by C.M.! Thank you kindly, my friend. (Readers, go check out her blog.) I was also… sort of… nominated by Lemon. (She said she wasn’t going to nominate me because I’d already been nominated… so she left itContinue reading “the mystery blogger award (again)”

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”
