A Novel Idea

I’ve recently embarked on a new journey into the world of novel writing! Every November, there is an event called NaNoWriMo. The goal is to write 50,000 words in the month of November, and even though that sounds impossible, this is actually a wildly popular event. In 2021, I decided to try writing a middle…

Imposter Syndrome

What is a writer? Have you ever heard the term “imposter syndrome”? It makes you wonder “is my work good enough?”, or even “am I good enough?” Writing often equals rejection at many different levels, and even when you find success as a writer, imposter syndrome makes you wonder if it was a fluke.

Spring Fling Kidlit 2022

Although it’s supposed to be 🌻Spring🌷 here in the Ozarks, it still feels too cold for this grumpy momma bear. To keep my fingers warm, I decided to enter the Spring Fling Kidlit contest again this year. Unlike the Fall Frenzy contest, you can choose any gif you can find online that inspires you to…

50 Precious Words 2022

March is one of my favorite months for two reasons: warmer days and writing contests.

Although that sounds next to impossible, I’m always blown away by the creative ways writers can craft a story using…

Holiday Contest 2021 🎄

**** THIS STORY WAS A FINALIST**** This year, Susanna Hill’s holiday writing contest challenges writers to create a children’s story in 250 words or less about a holiday contest.

🍂🎃Fall Writing Frenzy 2021🎃🍂

Days are shorter, nights are colder, and mums are blooming on every porch. That can only mean one thing — fall! I love watching the leaves change, getting cozy in a sweatshirt, and cheering on my favorite football team (Go Chiefs!) Another thing I enjoy about fall is the Fall Writing Frenzy contest! This contest…
