Start Here


I’m Haley – writer, maker, daydreamer, and the girl behind the blog Whatever Bright Things. I’m so glad you found your way to my website! Here at, I’ll be sharing more content related to my writing and my work around the web.

I’m currently revising my first novel, Life by the Stars, a Contemporary Young Adult Romance.


I fell in love with writing in middle school, and our relationship status has been complicated ever since. Last November, I participated in NaNoWriMo and won for the first time! I finished the first draft of Life by the Stars that month, and in the months since, I have been trying to revise and edit it into the story I want it to be. Although it still needs a lot of work, I’ll be sharing my progress in my newsletter as I keep on writing. To learn more about my WIP (work in progress), check out my Life by the Stars page!

Once a month, I send out an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at my writing, my art, and my life as a multi-passionate creative. Subscribe to my monthly update From the Desk of Haley M. Pettit where I’ll share excerpts, extras, and more!
