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

The Fangirl Initiative Is Having a Giveaway!

I feel awful that I haven't posted in so long. But if you want to know why, it's because I kind of have a special baby blog project.

You've heard about it before: The Fangirl Initiative. I started it in December and since then it's grown so much. Today was the relaunch: a new design, a new domain, and a giveaway.

I'm honestly so excited. I wanted to share with my readers because you've been an important part of this as well. (Thank you for putting up with my lack of posting.) Please enjoy this giveaway! You can enter to win a $15 gift card to either Barnes and Noble or Fandango, or your choice of 3 fandom pins.


p.s. not the hugest fan of April Fool's Day, but I got to talk to Spider-man and Thor from YAvengers on Twitter, so that's cool.


  1. I've never heard of the fangirl initiative before. I'll go and check that out! Gonna skip the giveaway though because me and my TBR are still having communication problems (it doesn't listen when I tell it to stop growing.) Thanks for sharing!

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.
