I am extremely excited to announce: I’m co-hosting a readathon!!

May’s Moments of the Month: July // A Really Hot, but Great Vacation, Lots of Good Books, Plus Pain and Rashes!!

I was on a blog hiatus this month, and it was so much fun.

Not sure if it was fun BECAUSE I took a hiatus, or it was fun and I additionally took a hiatus? But either a way, I was on hiatus, because I was on vacation, and it was fun! And I’m super glad to be back, I feel so refreshed and ready to get back into blogging.

The majority of this month was super good to me and I’m really grateful that my last month of summer wasn’t horrible. I read and got a lot of books, had fun with my family, and was mostly relaxed!

Really important note: So I wrote the majority of this post before I knew this, but… my mom’s cancer has returned after over 5 years of being cancer-free. I don’t know what this means for my online presence (especially since I know being active online helps me distract myself from things) but any kind of support would be appreciated. 💛

I’m Back! (Miss Me?) // Some Very Important Things I Did While I Was Gone (Plus a Very Important Blog Update)

…Hi?

Wow this is really awkward, what am I supposed to say??

I’M BACK in the city and I’m here to stay!!

To be brutally honest, I had an AWESOME time off of blogging. I mean, HELLO, I didn’t have to comment on blogs and write 1K-word blog posts and talk to people just be overwhelmed by blogging?? It was very relaxing, 11/10 recommend.

But I’m really glad to be back in the community!! I’ve missed talking to y’all (kind of) and I have lots of great post ideas. A lot of changes are coming to the blog, though, which is why I thought it would be nice to have this update!

I’m also updating y’all on what’s happening in my life because let’s be real here, we all know you’re just here to stalk me and find out where I live to mail me mangoes. Just kidding you all are horrible people and I hate you.

BUT LIKE,, IF YOU FIND OUT WHERE I LIVE, I’LL GLADLY TAKE THE MANGOES.

Hi yes what you heard is true: I’m going on hiatus.

Are those weeping cities you hear in the not-so-distant background??? Yes, you’re right. Everyone’s sobbing in relief in joy in misery about me taking a blogging break.

But hey you know what??? That’s okay, because I need to take care of myself and you don’t want me to be all tired and mean and irritated do you??? YOU DON’T, BECAUSE YOU LOVE ME.

But wait, May?! WHY ARE YOU LEAVING US WILL YOU STILL BE AROUND HOW LONG WILL IT BE???

Well my friends, read on. Yes I made a whole post about the details on my hiatus deal with it.

Writing With Fury―Plot + One Awesome Announcement

*Note: I am in the middle of a sort of “family crisis” right now so I’m posting this in a rush.

I spend more time talking about my writing than actually writing.

It’s true.

Honestly, guys, look at a writing log I’m keeping:

You can’t deny it.

And now I’ve found another writer link-up to talk about my writing. #YAY

The link-up I’m talking about it the Writing With Fury link-up, hosted by Allie (at The Depth of My Faith who has MOVED her blog to Blogger) and Grace (at The Girl Upstairs). I was SUPER excited to see this post on Allie’s blog, because I really do love talking about writing. I could spend hours answering writing-related questions, instead of actually WRITING.
