Random Writing Prompts for February

Random Writing Prompts for February

For this first installment of random writing prompts, I’m going with a chill February theme. No, that doesn’t mean a lovey dovey, Valentine’s Day-heavy list. Anybody who knows me is well aware of my lifelong disdain for this stupid pink “holiday.” Yes, I use the […]

Selah Janel’s Guest Review: The Last Dragon

Selah returns with her weekly review – are you enjoying these as much as I am? Graphic novels are the perfect palate cleanser after a particularly draining book – not that draining books are always bad, just, well, draining. As usual, this post contains affiliate […]
