An Exciting Announcement!

So, I’ve known about this for a minute, but I’ve been having trouble processing it. Here’s the deal: one of my short stories, “Purple Shoes”,  has been accepted into an anthology.


Yeah, like a real, honest-to-god person, looked at my little story and said: “Yes, this is good, we want this.”


Yeah, the anthology is on pre-order here, and the book goes live in September. I’m still in a little bit of shock, honestly. Here, let me give you guys an accurate representation of me after I read the acceptance email:


So, yeah, check it out! It’s a cute little story and I’ve already read a few of the others and they’re pretty good too 🙂 Okay, I’m gonna go back to processing my shock now.

Once More Unto The (Writing) Breach- March 2018

Sorry guys. I know that my life sort of fell apart, but that in itself is not incredibly unusual (as long-time readers are probably aware).

Weekend binging is apparently the method of the moment for the second month in a row. Blessings on Imaginary Boyfriend for putting up with me (again). However, the individual goals didn’t work out quite the way I expected. Let’s break it down!

What I’ve Accomplished This Month

I beat my goal of 75k!


As you can probably see, I did a lot of my work on the weekends this month. A million blessings from whatever deity happens to be listening on poor Imaginary Boyfriend for putting up with me. Seriously. My weekdays have been taken up by so many things lately, it’s made it so difficult to get anything done. Alright, let’s break it down.

A Reply to “New Blog Feature: Girl Books”

Read the original blog post by Elissa here: New Blog Feature: Girl Books

“We need more books that feature strong, loving, nurturing female protagonists…”

I consider myself a feminist. It took me a while to come to that conclusion, because I have a different viewpoint on feminism than most “traditional” feminists, in that I believe feminism not only means the right to choose to buck traditional gender roles, but also the freedom to choose to embrace those gender roles. My mother is a stay-at-home mom who raised two kids on a farm (one of them home-schooled), and she is one of the most kick-a$$ women I know, despite never having actually kicked anyone’s a$$. She has lived the life that made her happiest, despite the world and “feminists” constantly berating people and labeling her life as the “weak” choice. I can tell you, for a fact, that I don’t have the courage and strength to do what she has done.

We (and by “we” I mostly mean women, though this can apply to anyone that feels forced into a box) are constantly bombarded with the expectation that we must do everything a man does, and if we don’t then we have failed as feminists. I don’t think this is true. I believe we have a duty to live the life that is going to make us happiest. If what makes you happy is kicking the bad guy’s butt and being physically stronger than the average bear, than go for it! You deserve that life! But if your idea of happiness more closely resembles a Jane Austen novel, complete with a handsome man to sweep you off your feet and a beautiful home with tons of little ones running around, then that has just as much value, and it certainly doesn’t make you a bad feminist.

I completely agree that we need more books that don’t portray feminity as the kryptonite of feminism, and I, personally, am looking forward to this series. There is so much more to strength than physical power. Just ask my mom.

Thanks to my friend, Elissa, for standing by her convictions and beliefs! You go, girl! I’m always rooting for you 🙂
