TWITL – week four – fangirl love shift

Inevitably, the tide of my fangirl love changes. Time and more knowledge of the object of affection works to erode the heat of that rush of discovery. Sometimes the adoration turns into something steady and sweet, soft and comforting. Sometimes the adoration crumbles into a memory, usually pleasant and easy. In rare moments, the adoration…

TWITL – week three – music makes the world go ’round

MUSIC Devin Dawson – DARK HORSE – I had pre-ordered this album and it finally dropped on Friday. It is so good. I find myself liking this song but then no, that song. Truthfully, I think I have some kind of love for all the songs. I am really digging “Symptoms,” “Secondhand Hurt,” “Placebo,” and…

TWITL – week two – long weekend

School started up this week after winter break and now we’re having a long weekend! It’s really pretty awesome working for a school district, I must say. Let’s do a bullet rundown of random stuff! (I know, exciting!) I met Aaron Miles, former MLB second baseman. He’s from the area and we saw him at…

TWITL – week fifty-two – end of year edition

Wow, where has 2017 gone?! It’s almost over and this last week of it has me sick. I started with a definite cold on Christmas Day to full on not eating for two days and only working a couple of hours on my one of two days I was supposed to work this week. Thank…

TWITL – week fifty-one – holiday edition

I hope everyone got the chance to spend time with their loved ones, eating, drinking, and making merry! The kids are on break out this way, which meant my favorite workday of the year was this past Friday– the staff breakfast at the high school then our quarterly luncheon at the office. I love all…

TWITL – week forty-nine – seeing @TylerRichMusic again!

Okay, how funny is it that this is week forty-nine and we saw Tyler Rich Thursday night while I was wearing my 49er jacket? Also, we’re all San Francisco 49er fans. Coincidence? Sure. But interesting enough to note? Heck yes. Thursday night’s venue was the Bob Hope Theater in Stockton. Dustin Lynch was the headliner…

TWITL – week forty-eight – looking back at #NaNoWriMo

National Novel Writing Month is over! Falling Into Place is the longest novel I’ve ever written (not including the still unfinished three-parter story I started a couple of years ago) and therefore the longest novel ever for National Novel Writing Month. It’s a first person point of view romance, alternating between the two characters. I…

TWITL – week forty-seven – near the end of #NaNoWriMo

Sully on Thanksgiving Day It was an awesome week off from work! I hit the 50,000 words on my story and am currently at about 63,000 words (and counting). We saw Justice League (thank you for the shirtless Jason Momoa and Henry Cavill!). We had dinner at home for Thanksgiving. I bought too many things…

TWITL – week forty-six – in the #NaNoWriMo groove

I’m off for Thanksgiving week and I am utterly thankful for it! Last week’s highlights include: Working on my National Novel Writing Month novel. I’ve slowed down in parts and I think I didn’t even hit the usual average one day but as of yesterday I was still quite above pace. My story is probably…
