The Original Silly Story

I’ve been meaning to write on here for a few weeks now, but I’ve been distracted. I spent a couple of weeks studying and training for a potential work from home job. I found out the other day I didn’t get it. Bummer, I know. My boyfriend of seven months wants me to start moving …

2019: A New Chapter

Goodbye 2018 and hello 2019! I remember sitting in this exact spot a year ago and writing about the year ahead. I said this and that would happen in 2018, and you know what? I was right. For the most part, the year went how I predicted it would go. The only thing I was …

Life, Love, and Inspiration!

Man, time has flown by! We never know what the future holds for us. We can plan for the future, but life happens when we’re busy making other plans. I spent a year making plans with someone then life threw a curveball. One day, I was standing at the edge contemplating the vast blue sea. …

Dear Lucky

Dear Lucky, I never would have thought a month after writing a letter to Cappie I would have to write a letter to you. I meant to write sooner, but I needed time. I probably shouldn’t be writing this when I’m emotional. There will likely be a lot of errors, but I don’t care. I …

Dear Cappie

Dear Cappie, It’s been three years. It’s been three years since you died. I remember the day so vividly. I had stayed up all night just so I had more time with you. I couldn’t care less how heavy my eyes felt or how many times I yawned, I didn’t want to waste a single …

Write, Edit, Read Writer’s Market, and Edit Some More

I bet you didn’t expect to see me back so soon. I intended to take a break from writing, but life had other plans for me. A couple of days after I posted my last blog, I got offered a new writing opportunity with My Trending Stories. I’m all for building my writing resume and …

Tough Times Make Tough People

“Abby, how’s the writing going? You haven’t posted a new blog in a while,” a friend mentioned to me. I guess it has been a while since my last post. Four months. Truth is, I haven’t done much writing. These last few months I’ve gone through depression. I lost interest in the things I loved …

Finish Line is Near

I hope everyone is having a good year so far! It’s a new year and I have two manuscripts. As a Christmas present, my brother is going to pay for a copy editor to edit my manuscript when I’m finished editing it. Before I learned of the copy editor, I wasn’t too focused on one …

NaNoWriMo Conclusion

“I hate writing, I love having written.” ― Dorothy Parker. I’m a little late posting this, but… I did it! I’m a winner of NaNoWriMo! I actually wrote my book in a month. After taking over five years to write my first novel, it seemed nearly impossible to write my next in only thirty days. …
