Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 53

(First off yes, I did fail to post on Wednesday, and have been absent for a few weeks from the blogging world in general. I could chop it up to “life”, an existential crisis, or the fact that Target was out of my favorite trail mix. What my absence really is about is this: some … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 53

Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 52

1. I am once more sitting at the lake (yes, in my car). It’s warm this time, and the lake is very blue, though it admittedly looks a lot more turquoise through my sunglasses. (Do you ever take your sunglasses off and are suddenly disappointed at the actual color of everything? Like excuse me, someone … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 52

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)

A Long Way to Get From Here to There (finding your voice, etc)

"As far as my knowledge goes, children who have an early bent for writing have no special inclination to attempt the writing of fairy-stories, unless that has been almost the sole form of literature presented to them." J.R.R Tolkien, On Fairy Stories We'll get back to that in a second. My brain has been rattling … Continue reading A Long Way to Get From Here to There (finding your voice, etc)

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

Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 48

Sometimes clichés are true. That writers are hermits who don't get enough sun. Cause apparently I have a Vitamin D deficiency (pause: please don't worry, everything is being taken care of and I am fine). My doctor said, "We don't want you getting rickets." Ah, yes, rickets. I could get rickets like a poor child … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 48

Vibe and Aesthetics Only (no plots allowed)

Writers get ideas for books in different ways. Sometimes plot comes first, sometimes characters, and sometimes....just vibes. I'm the third type. Vague character vibes, vague plot vibes....I could totally come up with a color palette but not a coherent plot. Plots come later. So I thought today I pull some pretty photos and just...vibe with … Continue reading Vibe and Aesthetics Only (no plots allowed)
