on the power of showing up

note: I wrote this post in April of 2019 (pre-COVID). It's been sitting in my drafts for quite a while, but I think it's time for it to see the light of day. It's been helpful for me to reread over the past few months, especially as I continue to try to make an effort to write, and I hope it can be helpful to you, too. i got an invite to a writers' group a few months ago, and i had never felt like more of a fraud in my life. it had been months, if not years, since i'd felt like a writer. the proverbial well of words in my heart had dried up, it seemed, and i wasn't sure if it was ever coming back. i agreed to go out of a sense of helplessness—i'd identified as a writer ever since i could remember. if i'm not a writer, who am i?  i told myself that it was important to show up and act like a writer even when i didn't feel like one, because even though i hadn't been writing, i reassured myself, i still was a writer. but sometimes the words f

Beautiful People - Round Two!!

Hey everyone! Welcome back to April's Edition of Beautiful People! It appears that last time, our blog thing was a hit. I'm super-excited to show you the newest questions. If you're not sure what exactly I'm talking about... well, bear with me.

Some of you know how this works already, but here's the rundown...

Every month, Georgie and I will post a list of questions that you can answer about your characters. We'll answer them too, about our characters. You can come back here and link up with your posts, and let others read about your characters too! While it will be super fun to read about others' characters, this meme is mainly for YOU to learn about your characters. You can either pick one character to write about every month, or do different characters each time. (That's what I'm going to do.) I already answered all the questions for one of my characters, Avary, in this post here, just in case you want to see the master list.

For the first few months, we'll be using questions that were submitted by my readers about Avary. We'll be doing them a few at a time, so if you don't see your question here, look for it in the following month. And don't forget to give a big thank you to those who submitted questions! This month's questions were submitted by Emily & Lily. Thanks, guys!

This month, you get to ask your character these questions. Have fun with it, and don't forget to link up! We want to hear about your characters too. :)

1. How old is he/she?
2. What does he/she do with his/her spare time?
3. Does he/she see the big picture or live in the moment?
4. Is he/she a perfectionist?
5. What does her handwriting look like? (round, slanted, curly, skinny, sloppy, neat, decorative, etc.)
6. Favorite animal?
7. Does he/she have any pets?
8. Does he/she have any siblings? How many? Where does he/she fit in?
9. Does he/she have a 'life verse' and if so what is it?
10. Favorite writing utensil?


  1. The book anna and I were writing fell thru... she didn't want to do it anymore. :( so we won't be participating in this anymore...

Comments make the world go 'round... or was that chocolate?

Thank you for stopping by! I read every single comment and love them all. Seriously, it makes my day. I do my best to comment back!

My only rule is basic respect and honor. Disagreement is accepted, but hate and trolling is not. Otherwise, say what you need to say, and have fun. And don't forget to grab a free complimentary mint on your way out.
