FF: Evoking an Emotional Response

This week’s Flashback Friday: Evoking an Emotional Response I love that music can evoke such an emotional response in me. It’s one of the reasons that both myself and my husband were music majors for our first 3 years of college. While we both changed majors to more lucrative ones, neither of us have given …

Flashback Friday: A New Year

This week’s Flashback Friday: A New Year! Flashbacks are typically about looking back, but why do we bother if not to find our way forward? I’m a firm believer that the decisions and events of our past form and shape who we are, which in turn influences our decisions rolling forward. 2015 was, in most …

Flashback Friday: Christmas Past

I knew it wasn’t because it …

Flashback Friday: A Christmas Carol

Flashback Friday: A Look Back

This week’s Flashback Friday: A Look Back. Today begins our Joy to the Worlds Book Tour. If you’d told me ten years or even five years ago that I’d be driving around the Pacific Northwest with three authors on a book tour, I wouldn’t have believed it. I remember my first book signing party (for …

Flashback Friday: NaNoWriMo

This week’s Flashback Friday: NaNoWriMo My first NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) was back in 2008. I wrote what would later become The Eldest Silence–a first draft of 61,870 words. It was a mad dash that made me hold my breath and scream at the same time, yet it proved to me it was possible …
