2022 Goals and Resolutions
I am a real nerd when it comes to New Year’s resolutions and after a couple of years of keeping to really basic More/Less drawings, I’m back to more rigorous planning for 2022. I think it’s because I’m starting to feel ever so slightly >hopeful<. Hopeful that these terrible pandemic years are coming to an… Continue reading
Input versus Output
If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot. Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft November is traditionally a month of me trying to sit down and write some more. This is mostly because of Nanowrimo, which I’ve attempted… Continue reading
Elise and Vicky are committed to Camp Nanowrimo for the month of April, working on getting some writing done on our respective book projects. We’ll be back in May! Continue reading
Regrets, I’ve Had a Few; or, My Writing History and What I’ve Learned from It
My name is Elise, and I am a writer. Or at least I try to be. In some senses I am; I did work as a ghostwriter for nearly a decade and write upward of fifty books in that time. So I think that qualifies me. And I have notebooks and thumb drives full of… Continue reading
Goals for People Who Hate Making Goals (Namely, Me)
This quote pretty much sums up my relationship with goals of any sort—work-related, personal, deadlines, resolutions, all of it. I’ve never been good with them; I’ve always seen them more as loose guidelines that don’t necessarily have to be followed than hard-and-fast rules for how and when something needs to get done. At least, that was how I… Continue reading

NaNoWriMo? No, Thanks.
National Novel Writing Month—NaNoWriMo for short—is upon us. In case you don’t know what that is, it’s a contest of sorts in which writers are challenged to produce a 50,000 word book entirely in the month of November, from start to finish. As someone who used to ghostwrite books of that length for a living,… Continue reading
I’m Victoria Griffith and am enthusiastic about an awful lot of things. I blog about some of them here, particularly about books and writing. My goal for 2023 is to write a #25wordbookreview for every book I read, and to post them here and on Goodreads.
I was born in Paterson NJ, call Seattle WA my home, and spend a bit of time out in the desert of Southern California. I try to get out to see as much of the world as time and money will allow.
