Been a bit since I've yammered at y'all about yarncrafting, hasn't it? Time to fix that! I have a few finished objects to show off, starting with this: My Doctor Who inspired blanket, crocheted from many skeins of Nerd Girl Yarns' Who's Your Doctor club colorway. The yarn base is Bounce & Stomp, which is … Continue reading Yarn Talk: A Few Updates
My ACNH avatars, Cori and Corios!Image shows two Animal Crossing characters standing in front of Dodo Airlines. Howdy folks, and happy Friday! Let's talk to you about my virtual happy place. Like so many others, I have fallen down the delightful rabbit hole that is Animal Crossing New Horizons, and today I'd like to share … Continue reading Game Talk: My Island Getaway
Howdy, folks! I am back from the other side of Spring Break At Home and feel like I have a million irons in the fire, writing-wise. Even though I tried to take an actual break from all of that last week, I did finish my cleanup revision of my very first Nanowrimo novel, Living Legend. … Continue reading Sneak Peek: I Have a New (Old) Book Out!
As a writer, I've got a lot of recurring ideas that pop up often across my stories. I'm not unique in this--you can find early prototypes for later characters or plots in many authors' work. I think it's one of those things where the idea keeps sitting there in your head until you get it … Continue reading Short Story: Companion
In addition to plotting for research and actual plot on current story ideas, I've also got a decent chunk of older novels and short stories that I've been going through. 2021 is apparently the year of Cori's Magical Mystery Tour Through Works Past (TM). The idea is to see what I want to set aside … Continue reading Reading My Old Stuff
As a writer, I think it is safe to call me firmly ensconced in the fantasy genre, but I have dabbled outside this line here and there. Or maybe within this circle is a better way to put it. Most of the romance stories I've written take place in a fantasy setting, as does the … Continue reading Mapping a Mystery
I have wanted to be a writer since I was very young. My life is full of countless started stories, but outside of class assignments, I didn't finish writing a full, fleshed out story until after I was out of college. I was so proud of it! Then my roommate was the one home when … Continue reading Writing Shorts: Winnie’s Wings
Last spring I hit a yarncrafting wall--and when I say "hit" I mean slammed into it at pretty much full speed. I normally experience a bit of a slump in the summer (largely due to all of my television shows being off season since I mostly play with yarn while I watch things), but this … Continue reading Roll Call! Knit Gnomes!
As terrible as this pandemic has been--and continues to be--my family has managed to make something wonderful out of it. We've instituted what I like to call Family Fun Friday. On Friday nights, we order in dinner from one of our favorite restaurants, we play a tabletop game together, and then we watch a movie. … Continue reading Game Talk: Wrapping Up a Legacy
A while back I wrote this sweet, ethereal story about young love and was ridiculously pleased with it but didn't really know what to do with it beyond that. Last year, I worked up the nerve to try submitting it, and it was purchased by Beneath Ceaseless Skies, an "online magazine dedicated to publishing literary … Continue reading First Published Story!
