Things are never quite so perfect as they appear. I wanted to just prod something out really quick to let you guys know that. So many people post perfectly posted photos and really make it seem like everything is amazing. Even I make some pretty fantastically posed pictures for headers.

I took the one above, and then I kinda zoomed out to see what the rest of everything looked like.

Yep. That crackup in the corner is my kiddo giving me the stink eye. There are extra coffee cups, water bottles, a really dirty kitchen table… there are a bunch of things that make the picture imperfect. Never get discouraged because of pictures and snippets of people that you see on the internet, or even as a celebrity.

Those are just small fractions of a whole thing. I promise you, they aren’t accurate to how the world is really going. Everyone has mess, everyone has stress. Everyone has issues, and that’s what makes us unique and who we are. That’s what gives us the experiences in life that help us to be better writers.

So, the next time you’re on an instagram and you’re wondering how in the hell someone has such a perfect writing space, or a perfect bookshelf, or a really neat corner where they film videos…

Remember, there’s probably a pile of laundry and some empty cups just out of sight! ❤ We are all perfectly imperfect, and that’s just the way we need to be! So, don’t give up — keep on chugging ❤ Keep on writing!

limboOh, look it’s Zombie time! What’s that? You guys haven’t seen this cover in a little bit, have you? Well, I wanted to give a small update on what I’m doing!

I’m narrowing down the novel that I really wanna go forward with. It’s a toss up between my fantasy novel Cerulean Darkness and Limbo! The thing about Limbo is that I need to finish it.

_> Yeah. I did like 50,000 words, but it’s not done. Oopse.

So, I’m going to be prodding to get it finished. At the same time, I want to finish my rewrite of Cerulean Darkness. Once I’m all done, I’ll do some edits and then look for beta readers. O_O It feels crazy, but I really wanna crack down on getting these things done and getting things going. There’s an odd urgency to me now, a desire to feel like I’m accomplishing things.

I’m going to ride that as hard as I can and get this done. I’m excited.

What are you all working on? I’d love to hear about it! Let’s work together!

Until then, keep reading and writing!
