Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 20

This week I fulfilled a life long dream. (Gotten a book published? Found a portal to Middle Earth? No.) I broke into my very own house. *cue Mission Impossible theme* My sister and I went to see Jurassic Park at a drive-in this week (DINOSAURS). IT WAS GREAT. We sat in the back of my … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 20

Saturday Morning Post, Vol 19

Getting back to normal. But what the heck is normal? Is normal good? Do we even want to get back to normal?

Writing Like a Freight Train (I might kinda recommend it)

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. Now we can make some pumpkin … Continue reading May Wrap Up and Other World Ending Events
