Hai Beautiful! I think we hyped it up too much… If you have read the Illuminae Files series (Illuminae, Gemina and Obsidio) in the past two or so years; a.k.a. since the release of Obsidio, you’d know about Memento, the companion novella that only a few readers were able to get their hands on. Finally, after begging and begging and begging and more begging from fans of the series, Jay and Amie were able to officially release the once exclusive novella as an […]Continue Reading
What Happened During NaNoWriMo 2020?
Hai Beautiful! I’m back to my usual blogging schedule! I last spoke about my writing in this post titled: Announcing my 2020 NaNoWriMo Project. It was actually the last writing post before I disappeared from blogging in hopes to make more time for writing. In theory that was a great idea and in reality, it helped me to reduce stress, but did I write more? In my NaNo Announcement post, I spoke about starting my second WIP (which I am still […]Continue Reading

BWC Readathon Wrap-Up: Reading Progress + Creative Challenges!
Hai Beautiful! Success is a lie! Okay, so that intro line may be a little harsh. I consistently set super high standards for myself without learning each and every time and consistently failing, it’s hard to believe in success. Let me backtrack… I participated in the second round of the Because We Can Readathon; Travel Edition, last week. It is always a fun time to be creative, release daily videos and try (and fail) to read books for all the […]Continue Reading
