AH: My Depression Journey & What I Learnt From It

Hullo, world! Today is uncharacteristically sunny here in Raincouver, I went out for a run, and there are many daunting books waiting to be read. My perfect kind of day.    It’s always exciting getting back into blogging after a break, but I’ve been thinking about it a lot--taking breaks. It reminds me of the… Continue reading AH: My Depression Journey & What I Learnt From It

April Afternoon Tea with SJ + Camp NaNo Update

Good afternoon!  I’m finally (?) back again for April Afternoon Tea with SJ! (Hopefully I won’t jinx this one…)  It feels a little odd since I took a short hitout, but even during that short amount of time, so much has happened I don’t know where to start… Just to begin with, imagine you’re sitting… Continue reading April Afternoon Tea with SJ + Camp NaNo Update

LGBTQ2+ And the Christian Writer

Hullo, world! Yesterday and today, my mum has been gathering ingredients to make yuzu-shu, and I’m excited! (I’m crossing my fingers she’ll let me have a taste since I’m of legal drinking age…) Because she forgot her wallet yesterday, I went on an adventure to get it to her all the way to the Kits… Continue reading LGBTQ2+ And the Christian Writer

Hi guys!  Surprise! I’m not SJ.  I’m Samantha (or Sam, up to you), and I blog at Bookshire, where I talk about books, from reviews and analyses of habits of the reading and writing world, to digressing into flash fiction and raving about my favorite books (and occasionally movies). I’m so grateful that SJ suggested… Continue reading 12 Classic Loves Collab with Samantha

Create a Writing Life That (Actually) Works for You

Hullo, world!  It’s actually snowing in Vancouver today, which is super exciting. Snowcouver trumps Raincouver! (I know, spoken like someone from Edmonton where it’s -30°C and sunny.) I’m thinking I’ll take a short walk in the snow with my sister for an early Valentine girl’s date...It’s a White Valentine! (I know, now I’m ceasing to… Continue reading Create a Writing Life That (Actually) Works for You

AH: 3 Habits to Write What You Love

Hullo, world! It’s my lucky day! (I know, when I’m happy, I go off into weird Jack Sparrow tandems.) Raincouver has taken a break, and the last three days have been sunny despite winter still raging, and I feel a hint of spring in the air… “And when he shakes his mane, we shall have… Continue reading AH: 3 Habits to Write What You Love
