Goodreads (one of my favorite ways to waste time these days) has lots of groups, threads, discussions, and competitions. I joined a writing competition for the month of January – the topic was “the fae.” I entered, just for fun… but I actually managed to pull 3rd place! I don’t think I’ve ever won anything in a writing competition before, so this was quite a pleasant surprise!
Thought I’d share the poem with you all. Enjoy. (more…)
I just finished reading “Into the Vast” by D.J. Edwardson. I had the privilege to feature the author on my blog back in November and after reading his answers and the description of his book, I was intrigued enough to purchase a copy and read it.
“Into the Vast” was a captivating read, and very different from anything I’ve ever read before. It was definitely a true sci-fi in the tradition of Isaac Asimov’s “Foundation” series.

The first round of ABNA closes next Wednesday, and really, all we can do now is wait. This is probably the hardest part of the ABNA for me: the waiting.

I’ve signed up to join the blogging from A to Z challenge. This challenge will take place in April, and I will be blogging every day (except for Sundays) and each day’s post topic will revolve around a letter of the alphabet, starting with “A” and ending with “Z.”
It will be challenging, but I think I can do it!
