We all want to surprise our little ones during the holidays, but sometimes it can just seem so overwhelming that we end up taking the ‘easy’ route and buying the sweets instead of making them.

I’m here to tell you my favorite recipe for cupcakes and how to take that recipe and make it festive!

Mommy Writes: FaeTAL Part 10

FaeTAL

FaeTAL is going strong again!

I joined a Facebook Group with a friend and am getting out quite a bit of the story rather fast! It’s going to need some work…but I think it is going to be awesome once I get the story line down and can finally go back and edit!

The Fast Track Divas group is all about reminding us to set word goals and just sit down and write…don’t worry about edits or research…just make a note to come back later and keep on writing!

So far in just the day and a half that I have been a member of the group FaeTAL has gone from 12,458 words to 15,234! It may not seem like a lot…but for a writer that has been suffering from writer’s block for a while…it’s a lot!

Wish me luck as I dive back in!

I was tagged by Stephanie Waldrop and ST Bende for the 7 lines challenge. I have had a horrible case of writer’s block lately…but I can still share something I wrote a little while back! (I cheated…it’s a bit more than 7 lines…oops? I forgot how to count?)

Anyways…all excuses aside…here are a few lines from page 7 starting at line 7 of my current work-in-progress FaeTAL.
