2024 Is My Year of Writing…

And I’m not the only one who knows that. We all understand by now that overnight success really isn’t a thing.

My Review of How We Did It by Karl Subban

My Review of How We Did It by Karl Subban

Subban is a popular name these days, even if you don’t watch hockey. P.K. Subban is arguably the most popular, but his brothers, Malcolm and Jordan are right there with him in their skills, talent and drive.

I Won At NaNoWriMo …. Sort Of

I admit it, in full transparency I did not get the daily word count and did not technically write 50000 words on a new project in 13 days. I’m still calling this a win. Last year my local writing group, or a small portion of such, motivated me to try NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month, […]

For Canada 150 I compiled a list of Canadian authors I could recall. Instead of adding to that list, I thought I’d create a new post with the ones you suggest here, starting at 151. Please be sure to look back at the other list and let me know who I’m missing. 151) Kacey Dean152)┬áCamilla […]
