Reflection on a Year of Blogging

Hey Lovelies! Wow! I cannot believe that it has been a year since I started writing this blog. Okay it’s been a bit over a year – my first post was on December 29th, 2016 (That Awkward First Post). A lot has happened since then. I was really nervous to get started and I had […]

NaNoWriMo and Dreaming of Being a Writer

A coffee particle is comprised of 24 molecules

The Gender Gap in Literature

Hey Lovelies! I came across a Buzzfeed article this week that got me thinking. In the article it was talking about the gender gap in literature. Women are not as published as much as men are. “Wait, what?” some of you may be thinking. “You’ve seen the romance section at your local bookstore right? It’s […]
