The Great Social Media Upheaval of 2022

If you’ve spent any time online lately, I’m sure you’ve heard about Twitter’s impending (ongoing?) collapse.

I’m not going to get into it, except to say that while I have enjoyed Twitter I am not particularly saddened by this turn of events. HOWEVER, as a result, a lot of users are hurrying to create accounts on other social media platforms. Including me!

So here’s where you can find me now, in this time of waiting to see which platforms stick:

Personal, Writing Tips

Reflections on NaNoWriMo, 20 Years Later

Twenty years ago today, I wrote the first 2,000 words of my first NaNoWriMo novel.

I participated in NaNo from 2002-2007, and then again in 2012, as well as several personal “off-season” NaNoWriMo-inspired writing marathons. And though I don’t technically join anymore, it was such an influential part of my early writing life that it felt wrong not to mark this occasion.

So today, let’s take a look at the biggest lessons I gained from the experience—and how it continues to shape me as a writer even now.

Behind the Scenes, Hopefuls, Janie One More Time

Make Marie’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes For Yourself!

Ever since I published my first book, I’ve made some sort of dessert to celebrate a book launch.

I usually try to make it thematically appropriate. Sometimes that’s as simple as matching the color of the cover, à la the red velvet cake I had for Fixing Fate. For Janie One More Time, I wasn’t sure what to do—until Graeme realized that the perfect answer existed right in the book: the cupcakes Marie makes in chapter 11.

The trouble is, they didn’t actually exist. Until now.
