The words! This is where the words happen!
So. Funny thing about November: I disappear from everywhere while I am in NaNoWriMo mode, and I’m starting to hit that slump. Good news, though: I’m at 37k and chugging along! This will be a traditional post of sorts. I did a new thing. If you’re in the U.S. and you shop for groceries atContinue reading “I have fallen off the map”
For seven of the last twelve years, I have participated in National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo. If you are new to the blog or the writing world, NaNoWriMo is simple: write a novel between November 1 and 30 with a minimum length of 50,000 words including all-new content. The idea is to write aContinue reading “NaNoWriMo 2020: Excerpt #1”
I know I said I was going to share NaNoWriMo excerpts this month. I will, I promise. However, I am at a measly 1900 words and have not decided how much I will share just yet. Once I get my ducks in a row, the first excerpt will go up on November 8. For today,Continue reading “It’s peanut butter frosting time, peanut butter frosting time”
Sometimes, I joke about my first true love being something non-human. My so-called first true loves range from the piano to writing to black eyeliner. Honestly, though, I admit that one of my long-standing objects of affection is a good cup of coffee. If you have it in your head to interact with me inContinue reading “Roast Points: A Coffee Journey”
Anyone else feeling really overwhelmed with everything that has happened in October? It’s like the bottom dropped out of something that had a very flimsy bottom to begin with, like we got the bottom of a paper bag wet and then decided to collect marbles in it. I have felt like I am all overContinue reading “Just another unplugged Monday”

If you have stumbled here and have never heard of NaNoWrimo nor participated, you can join the fun over here. I have participatedContinue reading “Quick question:”
Remember in years past when concerts were a regular occurrence? Sure, you always ran some sort of risk when going to one: your hearing could be damaged if you forgot earplugs, you might have to suffer through the Russian roulette experience of using a portapotty if the show was outdoors, or perhaps you would accidentallyContinue reading “Go GWAR or Go Home”
Once upon a time in a small town in rural Virginia, a tween girl rented a movie from the video store called Josie and the Pussycats. The glam, the sass, the soundtrack and the whole package enticed her. While this was far from her first venture into a passion for music, it sealed the deal.Continue reading “Add to cart: how I, a smug suburbanite, ended up with a ukulele”
There was this really strange period in the early stages of quarantine where everyone was baking bread. The demand for yeast was so high that supermarkets cited a mass shortage. Flour, sugar, and other baking ingredients flew off the shelves as everyone panicked at the idea of being unable to safely leave their homes forContinue reading “Baking my way downtown”
