Y. M. Nelson is based in Charlotte, NC and writes about love, writing, and amateur DIY through stories and blog posts. After she spent most of her writing "career" ghostwriting for companies and realized there were no passionate verbs in company instruction manuals, Y. M. decided to produce and share her own work with the public. She created the Owen & Makayla romance story series and is working on a debut romantic comedy The Accidental Swipe based on her #MyTinderSeries blog serial, and a debut women's fiction novel Living Between Dreams, book one of the Living Between Dreams series. To support her writing habit, she’s an English professor and has a day job. ...more

When the parking lot elevators closed, she saw why: the hem of her skirt was tucked into the side of her gigantic, white underwear.(less)

They are the epitome of reality: having real feelings while dealing with real lives. They're dysfunctional, they have complications in their lives, they're clumsy, and they're falling in love. This all works for me. I have a problem when contemporary real-world romance has a perfect couple with perfect lives, because no one is perfect. Love is messy and hard to hold onto in the real world. It's filled with fat, lumpy, bumpy, rail-thin skinny, awkward, shy, quiet, loud ,wild crazy, sane, and sometimes perfectly "normal" people. Most of them are without ripped abs, perfect hour-glass shapes, or a billion-dollar net worth. That's who I want to see fall in love.(less)

No, you are not in an alternate universe, I am reviewing an album. I'm actually just flat out recommending it. As an author and creative I make playlists for every novel, I have a general writing playlist, and I play……

Jennifer shared a note and highlight from
Big Summer by Jennifer Weiner
When you’re a hammer, everything looks like a nail. When you’re angry, everything looks like a target. There are a lot of angry people in the world. And these days, they’re all online.
This is another gem straight from my therapist’s lips to the page of a book to you. There are a lot of angry people. They are all online. And being a keyboard warrior can make even the meekest man or woman brave enough to hurl invective from the safe remove of anonymity. It’s why I try to spend a part of every day in the real world, interacting in real time. It’s good to remember that Twitter doesn’t equal reality.
