Things I wanted to do while still young

There were several things I wanted to do before I turned 30, the age of enlightenment. When I was 22 and I had just left college, I wanted to travel and see the world. I wanted to see the UK, Hawaii, Ireland, Italy, St. Lucia, and maybe Australia and the Greek Islands. But since my […]

Dreams make good stories, do they?

Forgive me again, this was written very early Sunday morning (I stayed up very late Saturday night getting this down). I meant to publish this yesterday, but I had no time. Over the past month, I’ve had nothing but writing fever, even with my subconscious. I haven’t written down every single dream that mattered, but […]

The Nerd Queen Journal: Magic Champions

Writing mania

Three days ago, I wrote a grand total of 4,000 words for the day. Wednesday, I wrote nothing because of Charm City Trivia, but it really wasn’t anybody’s fault. I just didn’t think of anything to write. But I’ve just increased my word count goal to 35,000 words by the end of the month. I’m […]
