About Me


My name’s Sarah. (‘ello!) I am a young woman that believes in God and His power to change lives. I was born ‘n raised in the Evergreen State surrounded by firs, forest smells aroused by the rain, and GREEN like you would not believe.

Here are a few highlights from my recent life, in a timeline-ish manner…

  • August 2008: I started blogging. Wheeee changing the background and picking the widgets, what fun! ๐Ÿ˜‰
  • 2009: Like a typical teenager, worried about getting a job and college and so on
  • June 2010: Graduated high school and started college that fall
  • November 2010: Beat Nanowrimo for the first time! Oh, Nanowrimo… the joy & the agony! ๐Ÿ™‚
  • April 2011: Rediscover, a 40 day fast from books & movies with my blogging friend
  • 03-Cascade 2 Death 013Summer 2011: I worked in Mt Rainier National Park, at Paradise
  • Winter 2011: I did not return to college, instead I worked at a quaint little British import shop over the winter
  • Summer 2012: I loved seasonal work so much I couldn’t resist returning. ๐Ÿ™‚ This time I worked in Wyoming, at Signal Mountain Lodge in Grand Teton National Park.ย The Grand Tetons planted themselves in my heart!

I am young but already I have been blessed with some amazing experiences. On this blog I share with you a variety of things including my writings, my art, hikes I’ve done, my photos… and sometimes I just want to ramble and get some things out of my mind. I blog because… well, I don’t know if I can stop. I love… honesty, and I strive to always be raw in my posts. I think openness is not seen enough nowadays. Thanks for stopping by, and reading my thoughts.

    So, this is a bit random, but I’m also a Christian, live in the Evergreen state, and do NaNoWriMo every year, since about 2007. I might have even met you before, if you come to the Seattle write-ins.

    If you’re interested, my NaNo name is ElizaWyatt. Feel free to buddy me, if you’d like. ๐Ÿ™‚

      I visited your blog and saw that! ๐Ÿ˜€ That is so cool! I live in Monroe but go to Redmond all the time – worked at the British Pantry & Mathnasium in Redmond…
      Yeah I don’t think I’m going to do Nanowrimo this year – I need to focus on editing right now. ๐Ÿ˜› I am terrible at finding motivation for editing.

        Aww. Sad. I know where you’re coming from, though. I have a beast of a steampunk novel (160k) that’s sitting as a finished first draft. Certain people have threatened to skin me if it doesn’t transform into a second draft soon. Love Monroe, though– I come up pretty often to get chicken feed from the farm store on the highway.

        Wow, yeah, that is a beast!! ๐Ÿ˜› Do you have any excerpts of your story on your blog? I’ll have to check out your blog. ๐Ÿ™‚

        Hmm, no, not on the blog. I DO have a bit of the very rough first draft on my literature section of my DA gallery, if you want a peak: http://elizawyatt.deviantart.com/gallery/324362

        You know, though, I’m building a big application for writers to get better constructive criticism. It’s sortof like a pleasure reading site, only the author gets to choose to let you read their story. That way you get to control exactly who gets to read your own work, and you know the people suggesting this or that edit. Something you might be interested in?

      Hi Katie, that’s awesome you came across my blog! I definitely highly recommend Ecola, I am so glad I went there! Let me know if you have any questions – you can email me at sunsetapricot@gmail.com, just let me know if you do so I’ll know to check it as it is my spam email. ๐Ÿ˜‰
      I’m glad you like my posts, I haven’t blogged in a long while but I am hoping to soon!
      God bless!
