Fitness in the age of Corona

Before Covid-19, I exercised five days a week. My rotation consisted of outdoor runs, the Peloton bike in my apartment building’s gym, spinning at NYSC, and rowing classes at Row House. When gyms were ordered to close down, I had to re-access my fitness routine. Spinning, rowing, and the Peloton bike were no longer options […]

FAVORITE THINGS ABOUT ISOLATION

There are so many things to hate about this moment in time. Constant fear and anxiety, not being able to see my friends and family without a device between us, and struggling to breathe behind a face mask are at the top of my list. Perhaps I will publicly add to that list at some […]

Meredith’s TV Guide

For more than six weeks now, my social life has consisted of Zoom and Facebook happy hours with friends and family. Going out in the evenings hasn’t been an option which means I have watched television every night for the last 50+ days. I’ve kept my viewing under control by limiting it to the evenings/nights […]

Marathon Blog – Day 1

Hello to all from my individual hell…I mean social isolation! Once again, it’s been a while since I’ve posted, but beginning today I will be sharing content daily. Yes, daily! (minus weekends). You see, all this time at home has allowed me to finish a first draft of a book and several rounds of self-editing […]

saying hello!

Hello strangers! I cannot believe it’s been four months since my last blog post. Much has changed and just as much has stayed the same. There’s not much to report on the book front. I just turned my third round of revisions in to my agent—yes, my third! Melissa (agent) really wants the book to […]

I’m still here!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a blog. I’m sorry about that, but things have been crazy. Today I’ll update you on what I’ve been doing and what’s next for me. The last time I wrote, in mid-February, I announced that I’d signed with a literary agent. Shortly after I posted that blog, I […]

I got an agent! (Part Two)

Yesterday, I told you why I decided to seek an agent after so many years. Today, I’ll share a little bit about what it was like for me in the query trenches. I’d hoped to start querying in September, 2018 but revisions of the book took me longer than expected. My next goal was “by […]

I got an agent! (Part One)

I made a big announcement on social media yesterday: I signed with a literary agent! Since I’ve already had seven books published, some of you might wonder if I’ve already published seven books without an agent, why get one now? Or maybe you assumed I already had an agent. I tried to get an agent […]

2018: Year in Review

As 2018 comes to a close, I thought I’d post my year in review. I cannot believe how quickly the year flew by, although every year seems to pass quicker than the last. It’s scary, yet it doesn’t stop me from constantly looking forward to something in the future rather than making sure to appreciate […]

Build me up Buttercup

Every so often, I get down on myself and I vow to be more positive, accepting, and appreciative of who I am. I considered writing down the qualities I like about myself, much like people jot down “grateful” lists. And then I decided to not only write the list, but to post it as a […]
