Bunion Surgery (Pre-Operation)

As promised, I'm posting a week before my surgery (6 days, actually). I recently had my pre-op appointment that doubled as a physical, and a few days before that I met and spoke with the surgeon who will be doing my surgery. Luckily, he had some good news for me. First of all, recovery time…

Where’s Carynn?

So... I haven't really posted in a while. I thought it was because I didn't have anything to say, but really I think that it's because I didn't know how to say it- as is often the case. I'm thinking of setting a posting schedule for myself so I don't keep putting it off, but…

Camp Nanowrimo + YA Romance Sneak Peek

If you didn't know, yesterday was the first the day of Camp Nanowrimo, the spring version of the National Novel Writing Month challenge. If you haven't started the challenge yet, don't worry!

The Hunger Games- From Peeta’s Eyes (4)

Chapter Four As the sun rises, the birds and other forest creatures spring to life.

That Girl- A YA Novel

I’ve known Jean since middle school, or rather, I knew of him. It wasn’t until sophomore year that I started crushing…

Captives to Confusion Chapters 2-4

I decided to post three more chapters of the novel I started a few months ago- or was it last month?- Captives to Confusion. See the last post for the first chapter of this heart-wrenching sci-fi (that I've decided to stop writing...). Enjoy, and comment to tell me what you think! Chapter Two The first…

Captives to Confusion

My First Deer

Hello readers! I didn't post last week like I'd intended, because I've been on an inspiration spree. I've written nearly 10,000 words of a fantasy I started two days ago, and I can't seem to stop! Anyhow, I'm not sure about your thoughts on hunting, but my family is a hunting family. We don't harvest…
