Young Adult Fiction & Me

I have read my entire life. There were a good chunk of years there that I can honestly say in which I didn’t lay my hands on a single book. But for a majority of my life I have read. By the age of fourteen, I was done with children’s novels. I supposed nowadays they would…

Please Stop. An Open Letter To My Brain

Dear Brain, Please stop. I understand that you have a great million things that you want me to do and you are a constant source of ideas. But please stop. I just do not have the time to add another fully plotted out novel to my list. Please stop keeping me awake at all hours…

Monthly Wrap-Up: September 2016

September happenings? Well, there were good times and there were bad times. Happy times and sad times. September Writing I’d love to say that I have managed to pull the pieces of my manuscript (Phoenix Rising) together and I am back on track and going well.

Is The Days Of The ‘Damsel in Distress’ Really Over?

What is it about a person with a book that makes people think, “Oh, she’s reading, she must be bored. I must save her from the tedium that is expanding her mind?” For me, there are few things more precious (my family obviously) than finally finding that right moment where everything falls into place and…

Old Habits Really Do Die Hard.

Old habits die hard, or so the adage goes. And I’m afraid to say it’s true, for me anyway. I wouldn’t go so far as to say ‘you can’t teach an old dog new trick’, there is always something new to learn. I just haven’t learnt it yet. Allow me to explain. I real life,…

A blog article by hyperactivepandemonium. When I tell people, be it friends, family or general acquaintances, that I enjoy writing and plan to publish my work, many relate it to a monetary value.

Typing with Toddlers

I conducted an experiment. Hypothesis: To determine whether or not I can write productively while my toddler is awake. While sitting at the kitchen table eating my mostly cold toast, my son, sat quietly on the couch , (with half of my cold toast) watching cartoons and driving his matchbox car over the sleeping cat….

Me & My Blog

Well, I’ve started a blog it seems. Lets see how this goes. So I guess I should tell you a little about me. I have been writing since I was a small child and I attempted to write my first novel when I was sixteen. Needless to say, sixteen year old me didn’t finish said…
