So, This Happened

In October I’m going to help increase the world population.

We’re really excited, but goodness me, being pregnant has thrown me for a loop.

(Sadly, not a real one like on a rollercoaster. Those are off-limits for several more months.)

But life is great and now that I’m in the second trimester, I’m feeling pretty great myself.

I’ve still been writing though, and have actually broken some personal records for words-in-a-whatever-time-amount.

(Yes, I have and do experience pregnancy brain, but mostly in my reasoning and detail-oriented skills. So far, writing has been unaffected. Huzzah!)

So yay!

(Back to more interesting, writing-related posts tomorrow. Also, back to commenting tomorrow.)

I write speculative fiction inspired by mythos from around the world, complex family dynamics, and my own experiences living with mental illness. After earning my BA in Linguistics from Brigham Young University in 2008, I received my MFA in Creative Writing from Converse College in 2012. I live in Denver, where my husband and I spend countless hours chasing our three young sons (and sometimes catching them!). I collect tarot decks, dye my hair mermaid colors, and procrastinate by decorating my home. My debut novel, Feathers Sharp as Knives, releases on May 2, 2023.

  1. Congratulations!

    I have not heard of this ‘pregnancy brain’ phenomenon beyond the itch to organize, but it’s good you’re writing isn’t affected. :)
