2023: Be Vewy Vewy Quiet

I see posts on Facebook and Twitter and Instagram claiming 2023 as their year. That they’re manifesting good things and positive change after what feels like decades of global trauma. Not me, though. I’m approaching 2023 as Steve Irwin would approach a crocodile. With cautious optimism and a healthy dose of respect. Granted, Steve IrwinContinue reading “2023: Be Vewy Vewy Quiet”

It’s Like A Reward

Well, it’s here. Almost. Six days from today, many fortunate people around the world roll out of bed to presents and silly Christmas outfits and love. For me, as the year comes to a close, Christmas has been a bit of a finish line. A goal post, if you will. This year has, as hasContinue reading “It’s Like A Reward”

Back On Track

I’ve been in a weird headspace this year. I don’t remember when it started but I’m sorry to say that I allowed it to diminish my passions. Reading? Have gone through maybe a handful of books, if that. TV? My TV has been on for a total of roughly 5 hours this year. Writing? HardlyContinue reading “Back On Track”

Truth Hurts

And so does my throat after all the screaming I did at the Lizzo concert last Thursday at Little Cesar’s Arena! When I tell you Lizzo puts the show in showmanship? She’s amazing! In other spectacularly fantastical news, my baby sister is in town! Laura, my younger sister, is the focal point of an entireContinue reading “Truth Hurts”

America’s Next Great Author: Yay or Nay?

This past weekend was the announcement of who was chosen to participate in the filming of the show’s pilot and it was nerve wracking to say the least. Full transparency, I checked the application status page multiple times a day. Like…double digits. But Saturday finally came and with it, the announcement! Drumroll please…. It’s aContinue reading “America’s Next Great Author: Yay or Nay?”

Another Year, Another Ren Fest

I celebrated my birthday (belated) this past Saturday. the 24th, at the Michigan Renaissance Festival in Holly, MI. I was fortunate enough to spend it with two of my favorite people, Sam and Amanda. Fun, faire, and food (in the form of turkey legs). What could be better? It rained on and off with anContinue reading “Another Year, Another Ren Fest”

Lights, Camera, Application Submitted!

Well I did it. I wrote a 10 pager of one of my many works in progress, I filmed (with my bestie’s help) an audition video, and I wrote a pitch and author bio. The deadline was this past Thursday and, in true Emma fashion, I just barely made it. I did my best toContinue reading “Lights, Camera, Application Submitted!”

32 and Thriving!

Yesterday marked my thirty-second trip around the sun. It’s been another eventful year to say the least. Losses and gains. Victories and failures. Loved and been heartbroken. Learning and growing. All in all, I’d say I’m living life to the fullest! I celebrated with friends and family and it was a lowkey affair full ofContinue reading “32 and Thriving!”

Emma’s First Book Signing: A Reflection

I’m not sure what I expected from an in-store book signing but, for a first time, it wasn’t terrible. In the three hours I was there I sold 10 books, three of which were purchased by bookstore employees. It was a learning experience and I had some great conversations with the store patrons who decidedContinue reading “Emma’s First Book Signing: A Reflection”
