May Wrap Up and Other World Ending Events

IT'S JUNE. WAIT, WHEN DID THAT HAPPEN??? May was a weird month of like no ballet classes, breaking my phone. Endgame (*screams and tears* ).   There were weirdly cold days, mulling over stories, and buying a fourth pair of sunglasses. That was May. Like the condensed milk version.

What a Writer Wants for Christmas

"On the twelfth day before Christmas my true love gave to me..." Twelves days till Christmas. Twelve days.

If you want to catch a writer (heaven knows why. They'll probably just eat all your books and steal all your paper), there are some things you'll need to know once you lay hands on this mythical creature.  The writer.  You'll need a place to put your writer.

Love, love is all you need! *takes off headphones* Did you say something? Sorry, I was groov'in. I believe that there is an overall concurrence within the general public that the breed of people known as writers don't need much.  OK, fine, fine, fine, FINE. Maybe writers are a little demanding, but we only want total perfection here. … Continue reading All a Writer Need is…
