Since we’re at back to school time, I want to tip my hat to some teachers that forever shaped me (and who are probably regretting that now). These are actually past blog posts of mine, so I’ll give you the intro and then link you to the rest of the original post. Today’s look back … More Becoming a Germ of the Wild, another look back
A short one this week, since the other link of what I’m up to isn’t live yet. There will be a new flash piece from me for the Ladies in Horror project soon – I’ll likely have that to post next week. I’m also back working with I Smell Sheep to do regular manga reviews … More Stuff I’m doing
One of the things I love about fairy tales is that they’re general narratives, so a lot can be done with them. They’re easy to read into, easy to put yourself into. I hadn’t really thought a lot about the possibilities, though, until I was well into college. I was still at home and basic … More #TBT Influences: 10th Kingdom
So we all know I’m a music fan. I was fortunate enough to get to see Alice Cooper and Mötley Crüe earlier in the summer. In a nutshell: an amazing show. It also apparently unleashed my creative side in terrifying new ways. It also got me thinking. I live a lot of different types of … More Dr. Feelgood or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Crue
I don’t journal like a normal person. I’ll do a few entries in a book, but a lot is on random sheets of paper, random thoughts on random things, nothing that really provides a decent, day-by-day narrative of my life, because who needs that. Consequentially, there are sheaths of paper in my files that would … More Prose: Thoughts of a Girl with Mousy Hair
Today I’m taking part in the Cherished Blogfest – a really excellent way for bloggers to get to know each other and to share memories and thoughts. We’re supposed to post about a meaningful object, and this couldn’t have come at a better time for me. Last year, almost to the day, I lost a … More Cherished Blogfest
I’ve mentioned it before, but sometimes I get life affirmation in the weirdest ways, usually through music. I get a lot of this is probably because I’m focused on certain things anyway, and some is probably coincidence. Still, some experiences are just weird, like the universe has had enough and is pointedly clearing it’s throat … More Smart-Ass Universe: Let it Be
So mid-May a friend and I saw the Welcome to Night Vale live show, and it was fabulous. Like so much in fandom, the actual act/product/thing was/is wonderful, but there are always other parts of the evening that round it out, and those can go either way. The venue was nice enough, though the staff … More Fandom Friday: Welcome to Night Vale…Except For You.
Do you ever have those periods of life where you’re just going and going, and you feel like you’re just flinging yourself around by the seat of your pants? I get like that every so often, and this year has been a big one for it. I’ve always been incredibly hard on myself, so re-learning … More Motivation from the Oddest Places…
