Vibes and Aesthetics Only: Winter Edition

So the northeast got a big dumping of snow a few days ago, which meant I received a big dumping of snow. Woke up Monday morning to the cars practically buried in the driveway, and when (thanks due to dad and the neighbor) I got on the highway, it was one lane that was vagueishly … Continue reading Vibes and Aesthetics Only: Winter Edition

My (hopefully) triumphant return

Well, I'm back. Before I start this....is anyone listening?? It's been so long I feel like I'm in an underground bunker, desperately manning the radio and sending out Morse code, hoping someone else survived the global nuclear meltdown. My last post was - good golly - on Oct 31st, appropritaly titled "I only come out … Continue reading My (hopefully) triumphant return

You never know what’s gonna happen: 6 years of NaNoWriMo

(I haven't written a blog since October 6th??? Hahah, WHOOPS) Before we get into this, let's do a quick recap: yes, I have been terribly absent from the blogsphere, and doing a not-to-good job at being consistent on Instagram, but I'm giving it my best shot, alright??

Happiness can feel frail, always on the verge of flying away, forgetting … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 60

August Wrap Up (really I’m just excited about September)

So I was googling myself today for no particular reason... I found old blogs that I didn't realize had been reblogged, found a poem on Poetry Nook and like....how did it get there??? I vaguely remember submitting to there circa 2012 (or earlier). But anyway, there's a poem there and it's really bad (also there's … Continue reading August Wrap Up (really I’m just excited about September)

thoughts from a writer melted by summer

Summer 2020 sucked. Summer 2021 has sucked in its own way too, not least because of the constant cycle of disasters world over and the stream of bad news. Though we may not have had murder hornets this year, we did have people trying to convince us to eat cicadas. The amount of creativity I've … Continue reading thoughts from a writer melted by summer

1. Being an introvert can be hard…(I’m an introvert, in case anyone didn’t know). Being an introvert can feel like you’re constantly trying to be more extroverted. Constantly pushing yourself to be more sociable, and constantly brushing up on your people skills. We usually don’t talk about the benefits of being an introvert. Only the … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 56
