Asking them 10 times… Continue reading Using Instagram as a Writer

Many wonderful writerly things happened this year, and they've made me even more… Continue reading Cheyanne’s 2016 Wrap-up – books, writing, & more!
It's that time of year again! Of course, with all of the stores having Christmas decorations put up the day after Halloween, you probably already knew that.
