Poetry: A Collection of Some Short but [Bitter]Sweet Poems

So. I rarely share my poetry because it's always been a very personal thing for me, something I write for myself and myself only (unless I'm specifically writing it for a contest or a gift or something). But April is National Poetry Month! And I have decided to share a few of my shorter poems! These are all years old, nothing recent. Some of these weren't written with anyone or anything in...
 

The Weekly Update: 4/9/17

I only posted three posts this week and didn't do a ton of blog hopping because I've felt kinda meh and my tennis elbow has gotten bad again. I keep rubbing arnica cream onto it. I have no idea if it's helping. It's a lot easier than soaking in epsom salt though. Honestly I think they both do help some, it's just that I still keep using my arm and making it hurt more. In other random news, I...

Blogging Tips: Using Gmail Filters for Author Newsletters

So this isn't strictly a blogging tip, but I don't have a "reading tips" or "email tips" category on my blog, so I'm makin' do with what I got. See, I'm actually not a big fan of author newsletters because they clutter up my inbox. It's why, until recently, I was signed up for very few, just those of my favorite authors. But it's difficult to keep up with new books in series when you don't sign...
 

The Weekly Update: 4/2/17

Good news! The headaches were in fact caused by the granola things I was eating! So I have had a blissfully headache-free week! Well, not entirely since I got a headache from fatigue one day, but that one went away after a night's rest, so close enough. Kristen's life tip of the week: If you start feeling dehydrated despite drinking lots of water and can't figure out why, make sure you're not...
