Blogging For Its Own Sake

Explanations

I had someone tell me once that my writing and my beadwork seemed to be along the same lines– everything meticulously chosen and ordered.  Well, first of all, that’s an amazing compliment and I definitely took it to heart  … Continue Reading →

Escape Velocity 2017

I got to go to Escape Velocity 2017 and it was actually totally awesome, despite the fact I’ve taken so long to post about it.  See, I didn’t actually know that I was going until the day before.  I’m pretty… Continue Reading →

Circle(s) In The Sand

A fabulous wedding collaboration with Awesome Librarian Girlfriend for her friends’ wedding. Before I get into the pretty pictures though, I want to take a moment to talk about the wedding itself.  We flew up over the weekend, ALB with… Continue Reading →

Something Blue

Made for Awesome Librarian Girlfriend!Mom’s Wedding! It was intended as a gift, but it happened to match her dress and she chose to wear it down the aisle, which was just the most touching thing until the ceremony started.  And… Continue Reading →

I Feel This Conversation May Be Worth Mentioning

As followers of my Instagram (or my Twitter now that native posting works) probably noticed, Awesome Librarian Girlfriend and I went to the Smithsonian’s National Zoo on Saturday, because we are adults and we can decide to visit the zoo at… Continue Reading →

Quiet AF: The Fuckening

I mentioned this blog wasn’t work safe, right? It’s kind of not work safe. Write! is still working out great and the company still hasn’t paid me a cent for saying this.  I’m just that happy with the service.  I… Continue Reading →

Quiet AF

I don’t think my third time trying Scrivener has worked out after all. If I’m right— and I fear that this one time that I was so sure I could make it work that I actually paid for it is,… Continue Reading →

What? It’s A Good Hat.

I got a request to go over my methods from an unexpected source.  In the interests of satisfying their curiosity, here’s a summary of what it’s like being me when I have my writer hat on. Step One: Bunnies >… Continue Reading →

So, Let Me Tell You Something Awesome

Besides an amazing coach, I also have a kickass editor.  Trust me, I need one.  The gentleman who was supposed to teach my class to use commas did it wrong on purpose.  Of course, my class in school was supposedly… Continue Reading →

Shelves

So, the one thing I deeply regret in my life turned out to be that I didn’t pay attention in shop class.  Why not? I was busy writing and the teachers either A) had an acute smoker’s cough not parsable… Continue Reading →

Three Stories

I. I get the idea looking over a book of literary criticism of another book I’ve never actually read.  I do read it.  I’m not disappointed exactly.  I knew going in that I had my own idea.  I try writing… Continue Reading →

Bead and Button Show 2017

I’m not able to attend this year, but this stopped me from picking out my twelve favorite classes not at all. Mitate Garden by Staphine Eddy: a beading adventure.  Imagine playing with the colors of all of those unusual shapes…. Continue Reading →

Obligatory New Year’s Post

Little late for a New Year’s post, but it turns out one of my roommate’s has a tradition of cleaning ALL OF THE THINGS on the first.  I was down with that.  It kind of took all day and we… Continue Reading →

Examples

I picked up beading much faster than I picked up writing.  I’ve only been able to tell a more or less coherent story from beginning to end for a few years.  Of course, I’ve only been beading for a few… Continue Reading →

Love, Hate, Tortitude & Other Terrible Things

So, the cat previously mentioned has adjusted well to her new home, by which I mean she’s now convinced this house is hers, as it should be. Let’s call her Terrible, since any cat who stands on the table and… Continue Reading →

Kitty Prime

So, I was settling into the new house with new roomies when one of said roomies mentioned that she had a vested interest in acquiring a cat, or rather a bonded pair of cats so that Cat A and Cat B… Continue Reading →

A Post About A Needle Case

As kind of a follow-up/response/thought sprung from this post, I want to talk about my Stupid Expensive Needle Case. Like I said in my comment over there, of course hammers bring me joy.  I love smashing things.  Sure, I could… Continue Reading →

Amy Sterling Casil: I Do Not Accept Your Apology

And I never will.  You’ve claimed you had only good intentions writing this ridiculous waste of electrons.  I know you did not.  I know for a fact you have no sympathy for people who are different than you, and that… Continue Reading →

Something I Tried To Do In 2015 That Didn’t Work Out

So, the system I’ve been using to keep track of drafts and chapters and installments was perilously outdated.  All of my writing lived on my computer and got backed up onto a detachable hard drive.  The cloud was not involved…. Continue Reading →

Hey, did I ever tell you about the time…?

That. Just that. The thing I just said. Did I ever tell you about the time? Apparently, I say that a lot, or so I was informed– cheerfully, I should disclaim –at my holiday party for work. And yes, it… Continue Reading →
