um….I got published?!!??

(Yes, yes I know I said that I was getting back on a regular blogging schedule. And yes, I realize I did not post on Saturday. But that was because I had a performance on Friday (all day sort of thing), which is when I usually write my Saturday blogs. So really I just picked … Continue reading um….I got published?!!??

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

Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 44

Dead Man's Curve. The legend. The myth. The moniker. The infamous curve on interstate 90 in Cleveland, OH. While we're all speeding through downtown at 65mph (of course there are those with death wishes hurtling pass at 75mph), suddenly: yellow signs! Lights! 35 mph! Because out of flipping nowhere a curve barely short of 90 … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 44

Mission Accomplished, Burn Out NOT Avoided

Good morning. Or good afternoon. Or whatever time of day you are reading this. But congratulations. You nearly made it to the end of 2020, a year no one saw coming, or at least I certainly didn't see coming, since I wrote this piece of gold at the beginning of the year: "2020 is cool. … Continue reading Mission Accomplished, Burn Out NOT Avoided

Another NaNoWriMo won and done and in the bag *brushes off hands*. I finished at 1 am on Thanksgiving, fueled by brownie cheesecake. If lucky, I'm halfway through the novel and intend to continue writing it through December (I had this grand plan at the beginning of NaNo that I would finish it by the … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 39

Saturday Morning Post, Vol 38

*Sits down to write blog. Writes a blog. Hates that blog. Decides to write a new blog. Wants to write something but everything circles back to Covid and no one including herself wants to read any more about that. She needs someone to pull her away from ThredUp before she buys more sweaters* Hullo. "These … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol 38

Introducing NaNoWriMo 2020 (let’s hope it’s not as bad as the rest of the year)

IT'S TIME. IT'S REALLY REALLY TIME. NaNoWriMo is coming up THIS WEEKEND. (AND The Mandalorian. We'll just ignore election day looming in the near distance). I'm am PUMPED. Oh and it's gonna be Halloween (almost time for me to sport my glow-in-the-dark elf years.) This will be my 5th year doing NaNoWriMo *gapes*. It's become … Continue reading Introducing NaNoWriMo 2020 (let’s hope it’s not as bad as the rest of the year)

Writing Struggles with J.R.R Tolkien

I was organizing my bookshelf last Saturday afternoon, as one does on Saturday afternoons. I picked up a book (as one does when organizing a bookshelf, completely abandoning the project originally started.) It was Humphrey Carpenter's Tolkien, a lovely '77 edition. Started reading it and found some quotes that are just GOLD and thought we … Continue reading Writing Struggles with J.R.R Tolkien
