I blame Cupid for my love affair.

That chunky baby is not new to sweets. I’m certain as he drew up his bow it swiveled through his personal chocolate fountain before flying through the air, hitting me square in the gut.

I’m hooked on chocolate. I crave it. I pine for it night and day.


I blame Cupid for for my love affair.

Cupid is hitting guts everywhere. He’s is an anti-diet jerk and it’s time to get even.

I’ve taken the time to mail him my valentine; Hundreds of times over in the last week or two.


I blame Cupid for my love affair.

Now that chubby cherubim is so full of sweets his wings can not lift him.

Serves him right for ruining my diet over and over. Now he’ll know the sting of diet’s full force.

Next time he’ll take care to keep his arrows on course.


Happy Questing!

My parents kept buying me […]

The Call!

I know I’m deviating from my regularly scheduled day but I can’t contain my excitement! I HAVE AN AGENT! I saw a #MSWL post asking for a kids cookbook proposal and freaked out. I’ve watched the #MSWL feed for three years and no one has ever asked for a kids cookbook. So I jumped on […]

Query Letter Upgrade

I stumbled upon the best query letter advice in awhile through the Manuscript Academy. It’s called key selling points. Sounds super business fancy I know. But don’t let that freak you out. I’ll break it down for you super easy. If you want to watch the original clip or to see the whole video you […]


This week has forced me, literally, to take a rest. It has shown me how to look for balance. While I’m not emotionally prepared to go into what happened this week I do know one thing, humans need balance. A balance between creativity, hustle, and rest. I’ve been able to read Called To Create by Raynor some […]
