    1. Thank you! I just looked through yours and I like it. If you don’t mind me asking, is there any connection in your blog’s title to Tavi Gevinson’s Rookie Magazine?

      1. Haha no. I made that name up when I started running. I don’t remember how I came up with it.

    1. Hey Desiree! Glad you like it. It was just in the matter of having one major hub for people to go to to learn about my work, as well as having a space to talk about storytelling, my books, about writing, and about life as a writer.
