Sunrise over a mountain backgrounds the words "Farewell 2019" written in script.

…winds at my back, and chocolate in my stomach. Probably a lot more poetic in my head than on paper. Even digital paper. It’s the end of 2019. The end of a year, the end of a decade. Tomorrow we — I — start the march into 2020, the best year yet — or so I tell myself. 2019 was… Read more »

WiP Playlists: Anala

      Comments Off on WiP Playlists: Anala

This summer I started work on Anala, third book in The Bellica Trilogy. As with all my other projects, I created a playlist to help inspire me while writing it. As I don’t really know how to create a listenable playlist for you all online yet, I figured I’d just post the list of songs. No true spoilers, but seeing… Read more »

      Comments Off on Rewolfing the Soul paperback now available for preorder!

Yes, that’s right! Rewolfing the Soul is now available for preorder! I am SO EXCITED to release this book. I think the poetry in it is some of my best work. And I know, I haven’t been sharing as much as I’d like to Instagram and certainly not to here on this blog, but I have been writing a ton…. Read more »

2019 Micropoems, January through March

      Comments Off on 2019 Micropoems, January through March

I’ve been posting micropoems on Instagram, Ello, Patreon and Pinterest this year. I did have a thing set up where they would instantly cross-post here, too, but it broke a lot of the time and just didn’t work the way I wanted. So I figured I’d gather up the posts from the last 3 months and put them in one… Read more »

Welcome 2019: Goals and Thoughts

      Comments Off on Welcome 2019: Goals and Thoughts

To start: I’m not totally sold on this new WordPress editor. I know when it came out people were PISSED about it, and honestly, I can see why. On the other hand, it has some cool features. What I’m really not pleased about is the apparent disappearance of the word count function — or maybe it’s somewhere here and I… Read more »

Just finished my 4th novel, nbd.

      Comments Off on Just finished my 4th novel, nbd.

One of my goals for 2018 was to finish #FromTheAshes, book 2 in #TheBorderlandsSaga. Well, last night, I did just that. Talk about getting it in at the last second! I am SO HAPPY it’s done, and so excited to revise it while I’m writing book 3, #TheMoonrunner. I’m hopeful book 3 is a faster write than book 2 was,… Read more »

2018 End of Year Reflection

      Comments Off on 2018 End of Year Reflection
A photo of mountains being reflected in a clear lake, with the text "End-of-Year Reflection" super-imposed.

This month I realized I hadn’t posted here since July, and didn’t want to end 2018 on that note. So, an EOY reflection…and I would say an explanation of where I’ve been, but if you’ve been reading this blog for any period of time you know I tend to drop off the face of the earth for long periods. I… Read more »

Katje and the Complete Lack of Executive Function

      Comments Off on Katje and the Complete Lack of Executive Function

I did say I’d get that Gwyn ap Nudd piece up this week, didn’t I? Well, I wasn’t lying, but apparently my brain has had other ideas. I’ve completely lacked in executive function this week. Or more accurately, I have been plagued by executive dysfunction. What does that mean? Executive dysfunction is often dubbed “laziness” by people who don’t understand… Read more »

Postponing this instalment of Mythology Mondays

I’m sorry, but I need to postpone today’s Mythology Mondays post. (Gwyn ap Nudd was the winner, by the way!) It’s not ready, and I’ve been under the weather for the past week or so. I need a bit more time to put it together and instead of rushing and trying to finish it today (and having the work suffer,… Read more »

Manannán: god of endless bacon

      Comments Off on Manannán: god of endless bacon
The words "Mythology Mondays" appear over a background of blue ocean water.

This week we are talking about another one of my fave gods. Manannán Mac Lir is the Irish god of rain, mist, the sea, and the Otherworld. He first came into my life several years ago, and he’s been a huge part of it since. I’m going to try to talk about him a bit more neutrally in this post… Read more »

Friendly Father’s Day Reminder

      Comments Off on Friendly Father’s Day Reminder

This day is tough for a lot of people, myself included. If it’s tough for you, here’s a small, friendly reminder: I’m thinking warm thoughts to you this Father’s Day. Take care of yourself, and don’t let others tell you how to feel about today. However you feel is your own thing, and it’s valid. <3 xoxo Katje
