February Wrap-Up & March Goals

Happy Leap Year! If January 2020 lasted about a millions years, February 2020 only took about 5 minutes. My month has been full of useful and not-so-useful productivity (yeah, I started playing World of Warcraft again), but it was also filled with good books and lovely times with friends, so what more can a girlContinue reading “February Wrap-Up & March Goals”

The Sorting Hat comes to Limani!

I had some time on my hands the other day (translation: I was procrastinating on other projects), so I added a new page to the Worldbuilding section of my website! Most fantasy fans in the world can immediately answer the question, “What house are you?” and I’m certainly no exception. As a fun characterization exercise,Continue reading “The Sorting Hat comes to Limani!”

October Wrap-Up & November Goals

Happy half-price candy day! I had to go into the office yesterday, so my costume was really simple. What did you dress up as? It was a fast month, as always, but I got a lot accomplished and I’m gearing up for my version of NaNoWriMo. Instead of writing 50,000 words this month, I’m goingContinue reading “October Wrap-Up & November Goals”
