I outlined what exactly happens in the next chapter. This is the next level of detail after the big outline I talked about last time.Continue reading →
I’ve gone through where I want this story to go and where I am now and wrote out an outline. Nothing too detailed, but it does show the big plot points along the way so that I’ve got one fewer set of straws to grasp at.Continue reading →
By the time this is written and posted, you’ve probably already been born at the very least. I have no idea what stage in life you may be by the time you actually read this. You may never read this. Heck, it wouldn’t surprise me if you never were informed of my existence. I think I might have pissed off a lot of your immediate family and may be in the process of doing so again. But this isn’t for them and in the off chance that you ever find and read this, I hope it can help, whatever your opinion of me is.Continue reading →

I finally graduated last week. Now that long-ass final papers and exams and putting silly hats on to walk across a stage before grades were officially posted are over, I should’ve had all the time in the world this past week to work on my fanfic.
So what kind of progress have I managed to make on my story?
It ends up that I had other things waiting patiently in the wings for my attention. And it has been a surprisingly productive week, just not in the area of writing.
Some examples of what I actually managed to do are:Continue reading →
I am graduating in April. If all goes well, that is, which requires me to write a 20-page paper before the end of the semester. I also need to work on my Santa Clause fanfic some more, which has currently been on the backburner with school so close to coming to an actual end. And none of this is to mention all the small, stupid little details that get exacerbated by having ADHD.
So of course, what better way to unwind from all of these writing commitments than to start yet another writing commitment?Continue reading →
Ever since Hazel had, quite literally, picked up shop and moved her establishment to the North Pole, she’d had the quietest Christmas mornings since she could remember them being a thing. The tavern looked festive enough, strung with garland, cranberries, and paper chains, and the tree twinkled in the corner with the light of just enough candles sprinkled through its leaves. It was cozy enough to invite even the most cranky of forced early Christmas risers. But the only ones who were awake (and had decided to meander down for breakfast) were her, a handful of the inn’s tenants, and her huldra waitstaff. Although, in the end, it didn’t matter if anyone saw them now. They weren’t up for the elves anyway.Continue reading →
After throwing their new guest’s boxes out the back of the truck, and leaving him with only her keys and the apartment number, Juniper sped away in a vain attempt to make up for the lost rehearsal time she was late for. She was pretty sure she was breaking the speed limit, but this early on Christmas morning, most elves were asleep, so the roads were empty. Even if she did hit something, it was more likely to be an inanimate object.Continue reading →
The only sound more annoying than an alarm clock going off at the proper time is a phone ringing a few hours earlier. When this happens, most people feel justified in answering said phone with an unpleasant demeanor. While this may be true of most people, it was a law of the universe for Myrna. And she was not afraid to deliver swift and (to her) just punishment to those who interrupted her slumber.Continue reading →
