NaNoWriMo 2016

Hello Everyone!

NaNoWriMo is coming, can you believe it’s 7 days until go time?

I can’t believe it but I have started to tentatively lay out a storyline and/or plot, it depends on how you want to view it. No more than a page or two just to give me something to run with once the clock strikes midnight.

How many of you are participating this year?

This will be my 5th and I have won 3 out of the last 4 times.

This one will be a bit more difficult than the last few attempts. I will be updating this blog, traveling to California for a week and keeping my beer blog regularly updated.

Check the link below to see the fun things we will be doing with Authors and Beers for the month of November – I would appreciate  the support there too (go ahead and give it a follow), you guys have been so great on this blog.

Beer and Writing | What To Look For In November

Want to write with me?

My NaNo name is Liah2131

Anyone doing something new and different this year to increase their chances of winning? I am always on the hunt for tips for success.

Approaching Autumn 


My sorrow, when she’s here with me, thinks these dark days of autumn rain are beautiful as days can be; she loves the bare, the withered tree; she walks the sodden pasture lane.

Fall into the flow

Only when I am trying to shut off my thoughts does my subconscious dance freely.

It’s a game we both play – a wicked dance.

When I need you or want you – you can’t help but saunter off into the corner.

Tucked away in comfort, drifting towards dreams you pull me out of bed.

A single scene, a glib piece of dialogue or a character that I know I’ve met but can’t place.

All entertainment, value and stories I need to hear but they don’t exist.

How can it be?

How can I put them down in words?

It will become an obsession –

It will eventually torment me – 

Maybe that will be enough. 

Pardon My Absence

Hello All –

I am sorry I have been away for a little bit over a month. It has taken quite a bit of time to get my beer blog up and running. Not only that, but a scene for a new novel popped up one day on the drive to work and I have been fleshing out the story line every since.

I am back back now and I promise to get back to regular posts.

As always I appreciate your support!

Happy Writing!

Reminder of the Pleasures and New Projects


My other simple pleasure? Writing and good beer.

Which brings me to my newest project – in addition to this blog I have decided to combine my love of Colorado Craft Beer and writing.

This new blog allows me to explore beer and push my writing in new directions and I would love for you to check it out.

Don’t worry, I will still be spending plenty of time over here 🙂

Self-published novel coming soon!
