Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 43

I walk like a trapped wolf on a path of cement. I hung the sidewalks like I'm sniffing for blood. But I'm looking for escape. Or I'm looking for the sun. I'm looking for that place east of it and west of the moon. I look for it in books like I look for it … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 43

Soundtracks by Mood: a Comprehensive Guide

I am one of those people who always writes to music. I never, never write without music playing. In fact, I'm listening to music right now. I actually listen to music pretty much constantly.

Another NaNoWriMo won and done and in the bag *brushes off hands*. I finished at 1 am on Thanksgiving, fueled by brownie cheesecake.
