So it’s here. My birthday. Chapter 27. I don’t feel badly about turning 27. It’s just a number and one that doesn’t carry much significance. I feel excited if anything. With each new year, I feel a renewed sense of confidence. A year older, a year bolder they say. And I do feel more confident… Continue reading Chapter 27 – birthday rumination
I don't need beaches and scorching heat. I don't need endless cocktails served to me in the pool.

And I did just that. This note… Continue reading Journal Entry: My 6 Month Transformation

Except, as long as we're healthy, we writers have been presented with an opportunity: more time to write! With this in mind, I wanted to challenge you. For those who don't know, NaNoWriMo is… Continue reading For Writers: Quarantine Writers’ Challenge!
