Coming Soon: ELLAURIA by Megan Whitmer

When people read my first book, BETWEEN, I usually get a message that asks, “Is there a sequel?” I’ve mostly avoided the question, because for years it’s been a complicated “Yes and no,” but today I get to say, “Yes! There is!” BETWEEN, told the story of 17-year-old Charlie as she travels through the Between to reach Ellauria in order to learn the secrets of … Continue reading Coming Soon: ELLAURIA by Megan Whitmer

It’s Time for a Pep Talk

It’s been a while, I know. It wouldn’t be true to say that the pandemic shut me down—I’ve been staying busy, and pretty dedicated to the self-care routines that keep my mind (and creativity) in a good place. It’s just that, with the situation we’re all facing at the moment (where 2020 is THE WORST), I couldn’t find anything useful to say. And now, almost … Continue reading It’s Time for a Pep Talk

Five Ways to Spark Your Own Creativity

There is something so funny to me about people who say, “I’m not creative.” Trust me, you’re creative. You don’t have a choice. It’s the way we were made. We’ve all got it in us, some of us are just more used to thinking of ourselves in that light than others. Creativity has a lot of ways of showing up in our lives. In some … Continue reading Five Ways to Spark Your Own Creativity

It’s Okay to Be a Beginner AKA No One Cares About You

I hear a lot of “I’m too old for that” or “What’s the point at my age?” or “But Megan, my hip replacement is next week.” I attended a local blogger event last weekend, and even caught myself having those thoughts. … Continue reading It’s Okay to Be a Beginner AKA No One Cares About You

Someone Already Wrote My Book (And Other Lies You Tell Yourself)

When it comes down to it, it’s pretty hard to tell a completely original story. In the most basic sense, stories are made up of the same pieces—a protagonist with a goal, an antagonist in the way of the goal, and the journey the protagonist goes on to either succeed or fail in getting that goal. A young kid finds out he/she is magical and … Continue reading Someone Already Wrote My Book (And Other Lies You Tell Yourself)

Be Somebody’s Ben Folds

Ben Folds is one of my favorite artists of all time. A lot of people are familiar with him because of his mainstream hit, Brick, from the late 90s. If that’s all you know of him, PLEASE dig deeper. He’s an incredible musician and songwriter, and his songs have fantastic lines such as: “Make me feel tiny if it makes you feel tall, but there’s … Continue reading Be Somebody’s Ben Folds

Pondering the One Hit Wonder

We all know the One Hit Wonder, right? It’s a term typically used to describe a recording artist known for only one hit song. Vanilla Ice – Ice Ice Baby, Eddie Murphy – Party All the Time, Eiffel 65 – Blue (I hate myself a little for even thinking of that song), Macy Gray – I Try, James Blunt – You’re Beautiful…you get the idea. … Continue reading Pondering the One Hit Wonder
