August Wrap Up (really I’m just excited about September)

So I was googling myself today for no particular reason... I found old blogs that I didn't realize had been reblogged, found a poem on Poetry Nook and like....how did it get there??? I vaguely remember submitting to there circa 2012 (or earlier). But anyway, there's a poem there and it's really bad (also there's … Continue reading August Wrap Up (really I’m just excited about September)

May and April Wrap Up: in which I return from the ends of the earth

Ok wow. Just wow. I mean I’m not really sure why I’m saying wow but just wow. (I’m saying “wow” because I missed April’s wrap up post, and actually missed a heck of a lot of posts in both April AND May and also it’s June???? We’re halfway through the YEAR????) It’s June. Let's just … Continue reading May and April Wrap Up: in which I return from the ends of the earth

March Wrap Up (at least it wasn’t like last March)

Well, we got through the anniversary of the pandemic. While this March was better than March 2020 for me personally (though March 2020 was such a low point that it's really a terrible rating scale), world over March 2021 was still pretty bad, so.......alright we'll get off the depressing train. *disembarks* I'm happy it's April … Continue reading March Wrap Up (at least it wasn’t like last March)

February Wrap Up: ugh, ugh, ugh, it’s March again

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. Or more accurately: EWWWWWWW. It's March again. Which is strange, since there's a pretty strong scientific debate that March 2020 never actually ended. The boulder that March 2020 kicked down the hill is still rolling, if you take my meaning. March has never been my favorite month. It's not quite winter, it's not quite … Continue reading February Wrap Up: ugh, ugh, ugh, it’s March again

January wrap up: fairies, words, more word, and like…a lot of embroidery floss

We made it through the first month of 2021, which was....really something. I personally had a good month of getting back into the swing of things, reorganizing my life, buying new windshield wipers, and getting back to eating an obscene amount of trail mix. I don't have much an introduction here, because January is just … Continue reading January wrap up: fairies, words, more word, and like…a lot of embroidery floss

2020 Wrap Up: the Year to End All Years

Well, 2020 is over folks, though that doesn't mean this year is going to be infinitely better than the last (don't mean to be a Puddleglum here), and if it's not, we can't say "well, it's 2020" anymore, so what are we gonna do??? What are we gonna blame it on now?? But anyway, with … Continue reading 2020 Wrap Up: the Year to End All Years

bleary eyed and clinging onto a rocket hurtling towards the new year (November Wrap Up

IT'S DECEMBER. IT'S ADVENT. 24 DAYS TILL CHRISTMAS. And a foot of snow was dumped on Ohio. Me trying to get out of the driveway yesterday WRITING Well, first off, another NaNoWriMo IN THE BAG. This is my 5th NaNo and the 2nd I've won (the first three were....not great but not too terribly awful. … Continue reading bleary eyed and clinging onto a rocket hurtling towards the new year (November Wrap Up

October Wrap Up: woodland kings, revisions, and one slow reader

So just realized that I didn't do an October wrap up last week because it slipped my mind because A: NaNoWriMo and B: I guess I don't want October to end but it is over so here we go. (Pause: did I ever tell you Midwest weather is insane?? Because right now it is *checks … Continue reading October Wrap Up: woodland kings, revisions, and one slow reader

September Wrap Up (aka NaNoWriMo is almost upon us)

IT'S OCTOBER. YAY FALL. *flings bats and leaves in the air* *catches the bats before they fall because if they fall on the ground they can't fly up again and they die* It's October which means pumpkins and flannels and tea and pumpkins and leather jackets and adventures and moodiness and *really should stop talking … Continue reading September Wrap Up (aka NaNoWriMo is almost upon us)

Goodbye August HULLO SEPTEMBER

Not, gonna lie, I kinda don't want to see August go. Summer is ending??? What??? We barely got any of it!!! And also all the months were turning into mush, so it feels weird that were actually moving in fall, instead of staying in this weird stalemate which the past few months have felt like. … Continue reading Goodbye August HULLO SEPTEMBER
