Ice that cake, baby

(What??!! A non Saturday Morning Post on Saturday??? What happened?? So, so many things. Just get over it.) Ah. It’s good to be back. *I lean back sipping my London fog and wondering who I am because whenever I go anywhere I always order a chai tea latte but what the heck* I once more … Continue reading Ice that cake, baby

Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 62

I haven't done one of these Saturday Morning Posts in a while. Originally, I was going to do a Wednesday post. I'm deep in the editing swamps, and I had a lot of "editing" thoughts on my mind, so I thought I would write something like, "things to look for when editing - including bilocating … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 62

animal companions for your heroes and villains

The only pets I've ever had were hamsters when I was a kid. Though I love them dearly, I do wonder if owning hamsters was more traumatizing than anything else. One of my go-to stress dreams is of hamsters running amok in the house and me desperately trying to contain them.

If something can go wrong, it should go wrong (like in fiction. Not real life. Please not real life)

(When was the last time I did a post on Wednesday? I have no idea, yet here we are. Welcome back) "If something can go wrong, it will go wrong." Murphy's law. An old military saying. Whatever you like to think of it as. Along similar lines, I would like to create a new saying; … Continue reading If something can go wrong, it should go wrong (like in fiction. Not real life.
