Future Fears

New York Sunset

I've been thinking a little too much about the future. Or rather, the distant future. It’s been almost too easy lately to get caught in thought spirals that lead me to wondering how I managed to start working a random office job instead of working as a full time writer or wonder why I don't … Continue reading Future Fears

She Was Our Cat

Black and white cat

She was our cat. We loved her. These are the words that keep running through my head, like I need to qualify her existence to the world.

On this blog, in my novel, on Instagram (yes, I count that as writing). I opened an … Continue reading Stop Sabotaging Yourself

The Green Monster of Writing

Light through the trees

Since I graduated with my MFA in Fiction last summer, I've dealt with a lot of jealousy. Every time someone posts that they have been published, or tells me that they are further along in the process of writing their book, I feel a twinge of anger. I have definitely thought more than once "Why … Continue reading The Green Monster of Writing
