Romanov by Nadine Brandes // A Book Review

In mid-August, I finished reading Romanov by Nadine Brandes. I’d heard about her books, but Romanov was the first one I ever picked up. I was trying to find a good book to get into, and when I saw that it was an Anastasia retelling, I knew that I had to read it immediately. As […]

Camp NaNoWriMo 2021 Recap

Well, we survived Camp NaNoWriMo, voyagers. It held a lot of unexpected challenges for me (such as revising my word count goal multiple times), but I’m really happy with how it went, for the most part. I wrote a lot of words and got to venture into a brand new world for a while. I […]

5 Things I Wish I’d Known as a Beginning Writer

I think a lot of us remember when we knew, for sure, that we wanted to be a writer. For some of us, this was a decision we made as children. For others, like myself, it was a decision made a little later, when God put all the right pieces into place. I don’t claim […]
