DecWriMo Day 16 (12/17/19) | i promise i’m still here

HELLO EVERYONE. It’s just me, your friendly neighborhood Katti dragging herself through December and attempting to write while doing a million other things (lol). I haven’t been able to write for close to a week which HURTS ME, but so is life. We’ve had a lot to do (and celebrate!) over the past few days […]

DecWriMo Day 10 (12/11/19) | Meh.

Maybe it’s the rain sounds I’ve been listening to for an hour or maybe it’s 11 p.m. and I can’t stay up late anymore but I am TIRED. Brain no writey words tonight. I attempted a bit of writing and got an introductory paragraph started for the new scene I’m on but realized writing is […]

DecWriMo Day 8 (12/9/19) | REVISING

Happy Monday, y’all! It’s only like two-ish weeks until Christmas and I’m super ready yet not ready at all???? Yay????? Tonight was SUCH an awesome night, y’all. Lucas is currently studying for one of his final exams in his first semester of med school, which means I have an entire night of silence to just […]

DecWriMo Day 7 (12/8/19) | SNIPPET

Good morning, everyone! How have y’all’s weekends been? We’ve had a great past few days. I blogged on Friday and told you all of my plans to write (which I did – yay!) and yesterday, we spent the day with our friends! Lucas was studying the whole time, but I crafted (#CricutChristmas) with my friend […]

DecWriMo Day 5 (12/6/19) | WRITING

Hey pals! Apologies for missing yesterday – I meant to blog (and write) but honestly, I just kind of needed a night of doing nothing. As I said in a previous post, I’ve been sick! Today I feel almost 100% back to myself and was able to write a little on my lunchbreak! I’m not […]

DecWriMo Day 3 (12/4/2019) | WORLD BUILDING

Hi all!! Apologies in advance for the shorter post – today is my birthday and I’ve had an incredibly relaxed and food-filled night! Know what else it was filled with? WORLD. BUILDING. I have such a love/hate relationship with world-building. Like, I love doing it sometimes because it’s fun to create expansive worlds inside your […]

DecWriMo Day 2 (12/3/19) | SONGS

What’s inspiring me to write today? Music. Ask literally anyone – my music tastes are eclectic and downright weird. I’ll go from listening to Beethoven to college a capella to Broadway hits to 2000s alt rock. Weird, I know. Music has been really helpful to me in determining the feel and overall tone of Bridie’s […]

DecWriMo Day 1 (12/2/19)

Today’s prompt: Images that Inspired Me If you’ve been on my website before, you’ll notice some pages have a new header image, and here it is in all it’s glory!! This was a Christmas present from my husband (aka, best husband in the universe, as he’s known to me). I’ve wanted this piece since I […]

Introducing DecWriMo

We’ve all heard of NaNoWriMo, but have you heard of DecWriMo? No? I hope not because I checked Instagram and it doesn’t exist yet (surprising, I know). I’m going to brag for a hot second before I explain what the heck I’m talking about and tell y’all that last year, I absolutely crushed NaNo. I […]

“Lifel1k3” by Jay Kristoff

Good morning, y’all! I am so excited to be reviewing Jay Kristoff’s Lifel1k3 today. It was recommended to me by a friend (@l.k.middlebrook.writes on Instagram – go follow her!) and I could not be more thankful for the recommendation. I would absolutely recommend this book to others – I just gave it to my mom, […]

The New Rules Book Review

I think Brian Kardon (CMO, Lattice Engines) sums it up best in Chapter 24: Make it Happen: “…you can’t outrun the ball. For a certain amount of time you can, but you’ll get to a point where someone asks a technical question or something with a little more depth, and if you haven’t done it, […]
