NaNoWriMo 2016 Winner
December 1, 2016

Life took over this year, but I managed to write most days anyway. Winnie has had her back right leg amputated, and is doing great now. The kitten has been named Tiberius. (As in James Tiberius Kirk.) Oh, and I won a Goodreads giveaway for a book that I really wanted but didn’t know how…

chickens, raising chicks, backyard chickens, black australorps, austra-whites

FIRST! Big news will be coming soon – are you signed up for my newsletter? You need to be! Especially if you’re curious about what’s been happening with the A-Zs of Worldbuilding! Um. So. Summer happened. I’m not quite sure how the last month passed as quickly as it did. Floofers (baby chicks) are doing…

five confessions of an aspiring author, writer, writing, writing problems, Rebekah Loper, life
July 1, 2016

Originally published at on September 30, 2011. I’ve had one of those weeks – one where I set out to be super productive and ended up accomplishing very little.  I meant to have a short story edited and sent to my (new and many!) critique partners.  Didn’t happen.  There’s still tomorrow, right? Except for…

when life gets away, tangled wheels, overgrown weeds, compassion
June 16, 2016

I’m stuck in that weird non-momentum phase where everything is still really busy but it feels like there’s no progress being made, especially on the things I really want to do.

whole 30 challenge
April 4, 2016

This first part of the Whole 30 Challenge has been both the shortest and longest 1 1/2 weeks of married life, I think. (And we’ve been married for eight years, so that’s saying something!)

Before I get into the nitty-gritty of this post: sign-ups for the next session of Worldbuilding Wednesday will still be active through tomorrow! Go check it out! There’s a lot coming up otherwise this week, too. I’m the featured Blogger of the Month for the Oklahoma Women Bloggers, and my posts there will go up…

October 3, 2015

September was nuts. I probably should have waited until October to relaunch my Facebook page, because it languished a bit and I’m still getting the hang of it again. So what happened in September? 

August 24, 2015

I’m in the process of cleaning up some things around the ol’ blog. And on the computer. And I found, hiding in a folder, a post that I’d meant to put up this past spring. So this is two things: That post. And a your FYI that things will be getting shaken up around here…

June 1, 2015

Does anyone else have their blog post composed in their head, but when you actually sit down to write it, everything goes… away? Yeah, me too. I’m still staying kind of on hiatus, got a lot of things tumbling through my brain that I’m trying to sort out. More on that later, after the hiatus….

About Rebekah

Rebekah Loper writes character-driven epic fantasy featuring resilient women in trying and impossible circumstances who just want to save themselves but usually end up saving the world, often while falling in love.
She lives in Tulsa, OK with her husband, dog, two formerly feral cats, a small flock of feathered dragons (...chickens. They're chickens), and an extensive tea collection. When she's not writing, she battles the Oklahoma elements in an effort to create a productive, permaculture urban homestead.
