I was going to post something funny and lighthearted about the dangers of being a youngest child, but honestly, I am so tired right now, I don't have the mental capacity to be engaging. By now, you should probably know what that means. Guys, buckle down for another 2 AM talk with Sarah. What follows… Continue reading When We Find Ourselves Asking God “Why?”
Hellooo! As you can see, my wit has returned, and I can once again write a decent post. Hallelujah for that. In the meantime, I hope you've been anxiously awaiting Part 2 of our vacation. If you haven't, you can get out now, because I don't need your negativity on my blog. If you haven't… Continue reading Another Baran Vacation, Part 2— Featuring Hazardous Puzzles, 17th Century Swords, and Bird Poop
I HAVE BEEN INTERVIEWED!
It’s so professional. I can’t take it. *explodes into glitter*
Thankiest of thank yous go to Abbie at 360* Writing, who was gracious enough to interview me about The Sarcastic Elf. I’m requiring all of you to go check out her blog, because she’s got some pretty cool stuff. (Not to mention her blog is beautiful. Oh. My. Goodness.)
(Oh, and you know how I said I was going to post part 2 of my vacation on Thursday? WELL… I’ve been hit with this little thing called “I suddenly have no wit” which means I suddenly and inexplicably have no wit. Therefore, everything I write comes out flatter than a squished pancake, and THEREFORE… I missed Thursday. Sorry. I expect my style shall return to me in the next day or so, so keep your eyes peeled.)
In the meantime… read the interview and look up 360* Writing. It’s pretty cool.
Well hello, all you lovelies. You may (or may not, depending on how devoted you are) have noticed that I didn't do a post last Thursday. The reason (yes, there is a reason) behind this is... I was lazy. I was going to say "Bet ya didn't see that one coming!" until I realized that… Continue reading Another Baran Vacation, Part 1— Featuring Photogenic Pigeons and a Hurricane
Alright, people, I have an announcement to make. We all (hopefully) know that I'm writing a book that hates me. Not only does it resist being written, it's extremely disobedient and rebellious, and my characters make tons of messes that I have to clean up. It's been a thorn in my side for two years… Continue reading Goodbye, Book
Well, guess what: You know how fall has been creeping up on us, and I don't like it? It just added a new gun to its belt: School. Yes, homeschool co-op started this week. I have to go every Monday. You guys better prepare yourselves for a whole lot of upcoming drama, because that place… Continue reading The Secret Plot to Assassinate Sarah Baran by Art
Let us take a moment of silence to accept that summer is pretty much over and September is already upon us. Thank you. Did I mention school is starting for me soon? *dies* Did I mention school is a terrible, terrible thing, even for a homeschooler? *dies again* The approach of said school… Continue reading Message from a Dust Speck
Wow, I actually wrote a short story that isn't a Chronicle of Plerp! I feel so proud of myself. To make a long story short, Sylvestrus is currently on the time out chair. (I kid you not, I had to read that sentence three times to realize I'd accidentally made the world's stupidest pun.) Anyway,… Continue reading The Best Kind of Evil Plan
One night last week, we lost power during a storm. ... Nope, Anna would classify that as a boring start. I'll try again. During a single period between sunset and sunrise, those of my kindred blood and I lost all electric capabilities during a vociferation of nature. Yeah. I think I'm just gonna go with,… Continue reading Survival Trivia With My Father
Yes, I am completely behind the times. Though that really shouldn't come as a great shock to anyone. *ahem* Guys, we've done it. My family's finally watched something that's kind of a classic. Last month, actually, so that's something to be proud of, despite the fact that I'm relaying old news. And, during a recent… Continue reading Wisdom from the Utterly Stupid: Pirates of the Caribbean
