Slow and Steady

My new novel is coming along, slowly but surely. I've been trying to remember that whether I end the day with 500 or 2000 words, any amount is progress and I should be proud of that. This week the ever-so-lovely Kelli Trontel (one of the coolest, most inspiring ladies I know) released her monthly collaboration with Thorn +Sparrow, and this month's desktop/iPhone wallpaper was exactly what I needed to help inspire me as I continue pushing through my first draft. It's the perfect reminder to take things one day at a time, and that all these little chapters will eventually come together to make something awesome.

So for this week's Picture Quote Monday, head on over to Kelli's blog and snag some of that inspiration for yourself!

'Tis the Season

Even though it's not officially fall yet, with the start of a new school year, it certainly feels like it's begun. Which makes me very, very happy. Fall is my favorite season. There's a reason every book I've ever written has been birthed during the fall months. There's something about autumn that reinvigorates my creative spirit. The changing colors, the crisp air, the scent of cinnamon and nutmeg and pumpkin....even my favorite music seems to take on a richer sound. (I'm listening to the new The Civil Wars album as we speak. Best. Fall. Music. Ever.) Plus, I am not a hot weather person. Me + any temperature above 75 = cranky pants. I like my skinny jeans, my scarves, my hot drinks, and my comforter. So by this time each year, Summer and I have stopped speaking and I'm ready to move on--even if Summer isn't. So what's an autumn girl to do when it's mid-September and still eighty-five degrees outside? Don the jeans (heat be damned), stockpile the apple cider k-cups that were on sale, and put up the fall decorations, of course.
