Lit Tuesday: The Summer Tree

I don't have a long post for tonight. As always, things have been busy and I need to make sure I set some time aside to write. Maybe I should start doing that in the mornings while I drink my first cup of coffee instead of mindlessly looking at Pinterest. We'll see. So, my book … Continue reading Lit Tuesday: The Summer Tree

Wordy Wednesday: National Bourbon Day

Shameless promotion: My friends over at Blue Crater were running a promotion for a free graphic for your site, so I shamelessly (well, kinda) utilized their offer. Here's a shout-out to them (thanks for the graphic, it's awesome, and it's totes the best), but, seriously. I've been following their adventure on Instagram and the stuff … Continue reading Wordy Wednesday: National Bourbon Day

Lit Tuesday: Three Series on the Shelves

Yes, I’m still alive. Yes, I’m still a slacker. Yes, I’m still working on learning how to actually force myself to sit down and make time to write up things. As much as I’d feel like it’s cheating, maybe what I need to do is start writing my posts on Sunday or over the weekend. … Continue reading Lit Tuesday: Three Series on the Shelves

Lit Tuesday: Post-Apocalyptic Reading List

I mentioned last week that I finally finished part one of my post-apocalyptic story. (No, I haven’t done any more writing to it because the writing assignment I have for my book club/writing group is staring me in the face, taunting me. I need to finish it.) Following that post, a co-worker of mine mentioned … Continue reading Lit Tuesday: Post-Apocalyptic Reading List

Thirsty Thursday: Starting a Charlotte List

Some of you may know that my little sister recently moved back to Charlotte to live with her fiancé, who will be working in Uptown doing pretentious economic and math-related  things. (Just kidding, I promise I actually like him. But seriously.) So, even though my in-laws live in Mooresville, with my sister and her fiancé … Continue reading Thirsty Thursday: Starting a Charlotte List

Lit Tuesday: Progress Report

Okay, I'm a day late. Sorry. I got home and started reading and I should know not to do that by now. Well, at least, not until after I've posted my entry for the day. So, good news! Remember I was talking a couple of weeks back about the stories I'm working on? I finished … Continue reading Lit Tuesday: Progress Report

Thirsty Thursday: Top Five Goses

Most people who have been with me to breweries lately know that sour beers are my jam right now. They're tart, they're a little sweet, and they're refreshing. Best of all, they're sipping beers. They're beers that you really want to take your time and savor all the flavors. Even though this weekend is going … Continue reading Thirsty Thursday: Top Five Goses

Lit Tuesday: Fourth and Long

Today's post is another reading challenge review. The challenge was to read something with a number in the title, so I picked Fourth and Long by John U. Bacon. I really started getting into football back in college. Was my football team really anything spectacular? Well, no, not really. Anyone who's a Catamount fan knows … Continue reading Lit Tuesday: Fourth and Long

Lit Tuesday: Works in Progress

Part of the reason I started this blog was because I wanted to try to make myself write at least a little something a couple of times a week. This, in turn, would hopefully help me start developing habits to where I actively make time to write rather than thinking to myself, "Oh, sleep is … Continue reading Lit Tuesday: Works in Progress
