For those of you who don’t understand writing, writing can be an extension of your creativity, your feelings, or just a what if something happened. Midnight diary is a blend of all of them. Some are based on fact. Some are based on feelings. Some are based on what if situations. There is no inbetween or someone trying to interpret what they mean. They are not aimed at any one person or intended for a certain audience but merely an invocation of some words on my mind. Some are even written as a point of view of what I imagine others to think. It’s more of a dramatic staged reading than most anything else-exercising my writing muscles and having some sort of homework to get me to think a certain way. I’ve succeeded if I make you feel it too.

I’ve been obsessed with graphic novels/comics recently and been really wanting to get into one as soon as I’m done with Fairytale. I’ll be working on Freefall in the process as well since it’s such a long story that I keep coming back to. I have been keeping up with some favorites on the WebToon app on my phone and found some good comics on there to inspire me. I’ve been playing around with an idea about a historical fiction novel and working on getting a notebook to draw in. Because of my job, I won’t have time to digitally draw them every day but I do want to start a sketch notebook and kind of map out with sketches what I want for this graphic novel. I bought a graphic novel program for digital art but I have been completely lazy on it and haven’t used it but maybe twice since I last got it, ha! Anyway, if you have any tips for me for drawing/sketching/graphic novels/ comics, or anything, then definitely comment below. I linked my Pinterest account, my business page, Twitter page, and my Wattpad (where I post most of my short stories) below under my name if you want to check it out!

I know we are all guilty of it and sometimes it may just seem easier to quit while we think we are ahead and just ride it out until the procrastination season ends and you realize that you’ve completely wasted valuable time that you could’ve been writing.
My tip is simple.
Find a time in the day or week that you have some down time and just give yourself a grace period during this time and bring up your laptop or notebook and snuggle up with your favorite mug with tea, hot chocolate, or coffee, and just let the words just start flowing from you. They may not be good, but eventually they will be.
You can write to your heart’s content when you start and then have that time every day or week that you look forward to. I love planning so when I bring out my planners and notebooks that I’ve written down my weekly plans and day by day, I feel productive and like I want to complete that list. Give yourself a goal, maybe 500 words or so and just watch the results pile up. I am highly competitive and I freaking love lists. I love crossing things off lists as well and I love getting new notebooks and scribbling in them. You don’t even have to be a writer to have an obsession with notebooks although I’ve noticed that’s a trend with our type of people.
Be organized. Messily if you want or need to be, but organized.
Check out my Pinterest for my storyboards for all my ongoing or finished stories about all that inspires me and maybe give me a follow if you are interested. I pin almost hourly at this point, let’s be real. (Don’t pretend that you don’t do that either.)

- So it’s been a minute since I’ve last been here. I’ve been swamped and yada yada with all of this work and schooling and everything. I have been writing. If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I have not been slacking too much but I can’t very well post too many pictures on there so here’s to my inner nerd and inner writer research. I recently went to an old house and visited there and took a billion pictures of all of the interior and exterior of this elaborate old house. These pictures will better help you in understanding some of my future books, one about old houses and trying to make it as accurate as possible. It will be set as a murder mystery because aren’t those the most fun to read? I’m just going to leave you with these pictures and a tiny tidbit of the beginning to the story
“She texted me to be here. But looking up at what I could see from the front, the house looked abandoned but well kept up. I knocked on the broad door leading into the main house, the stain glass staring back at me and refusing to allow access via sight for my curiosity. I called again-well, tried. But the phone only rang twice before dropping out. No signal flashed across my screen. The phone stared blankly back at me, the depleted bar in one corner very nearly red. Inside, if I ever got inside, I would have to charge it. If they even had wifi or anything living here.
The curtain moved.
I wasn’t alone. ”
Hope y’all enjoy, xoxo,
