Location: Big Sky Montana, USA

I'm really unsure of how to illustrate who I am. Basically, I'm an accounting nerd who enjoys scotch ales, weight lifting, music, Pinterest, and procrastinating. I'm married - my husband is an auto enthusiast who enjoys nuclear weapons, alcoholic root beer, "gettin' swol", and computer hardware. We bonded over our love of anime... seriously. Our first date was awkward until I said, "I like anime." And 7 years later, we're married and living 10 hours away from any of our family. Yup, good times.
Burdened: Chapter 12 posted 8/30/2016. Next update sometime... in the future. I dunno.
Heart of Ice, Eyes of Fire: This is probably gonna get torn down and revamped. But I haven't committed to actually doing it yet.
5/3/16: I have been trying to actually work on the structure of the story - you know, not just winging it most every chapter. So I'm hoping it will give me more of a guideline of what to really write for each chapter. I may go back and redo the first couple of chapters after I've finished the first 10, but we shall see. For those wondering where the story will be going, I have four arcs mapped out; we are currently about halfway through the first arc.
8/31/16: Look! I actually updated! Yay me! :) I think I will take a week or two and rewrite the past couple chapters that were rushed. If I do, I'll place a little note at the beginning of Chapter 13. I probably won't add anything that adds to the plot, but just clean it up - make it less word vomit-y.
11/3/16: Yup. I suck. I know. And I am the excuses queen - if you want to know exactly what's going on to delay this so much, you can message me. But honestly, it's just life getting in the way. A huge project of mine is wrapping up today... but another huge project starts this week and next as well. It is a little crazy. Sorry, but also not sorry. Just be a little patient with me...
2/1/17: Yes, I'm still alive. Yes, I'm still writing - just taking a bit of a hiatus at the moment. My work isn't turning out like I thought it would - I'm starting to dread it more every day. I've started a side business of calligraphy and hand-lettering, so I've got a lot on my plate. Not to mention, I'm trying to take care of my health a little bit more this year. I'm always exhausted and I feel like there is a fog in my head constantly. I've got just bits and pieces of the chapters written - it's that filler and connection parts that are screwing me over. I really am sorry to those of you who follow Burdened - I intended to make it a monthly thing but it's just not working with me right now. Please keep me on your alerts, I am still intending on updating in the next month or so.
11/9/17: Still alive. Still writing. We moved to a new state this summer, bought our first house, and I started a new job. My free time is few and far between, and when I do have it I generally devote it to my husband and our home. Burdened is on hiatus, but will eventually be updated- fingers crossed for more time for me next year. No promises though, considering I'm already in line for a promotion and have been asked to sit for the CPA exam. Yay... Busy times ahead for me. Burdened is constantly in the back of my mind, but I just can't seem to get it 'on paper.' Keep me in your notifications, though. I'm hoping to update in the near future.
8/9/19: Still alive. Sort of writing. I feel bad posting any additional chapters when I literally have no idea when the next will come out. I've been so extremely busy just going through life that this has taken such a back burner. Been focusing on my job and my health above all lately. Good news is that since the update before this one I've gotten two promotions at my job. Bad news - very little creative juices flowing. I'm trying. Thanks for reading what you have so far.
