10 Reasons You Definitely Should NOT Become an Author // and an important announcement

Once upon a time, my life was simple. I was a wee, innocent child who did wee, innocent things -- living each day free of worry or stress, flitting from one meaningless pastime to the next with the attention-span of a meerkat high on caffeine. Then one day, I made the blindingly stupid decision to …

The Misery of Spring // a series of disturbed facial expressions

Hullo, minions! I was poking through some old drafts yesterday and came upon an aged, dusty post dated exactly one year ago today. Why I never posted it is beyond me, but after reading through it (and subsequently laughing my face off), I decided it would be quite appropriate for today. Enjoy the misery of …

Candid Conversations with Millie Florence // authors, interviews, and unexpected guests

GUYS! Guess what I get to do today! I GET TO INTERVIEW ONE OF MY NEW FAVORITE AUTHORS!!! You may have noticed my recent obsession with the book Honey Butter by indie-author Millie Florence (as demonstrated by my profuse fangirling on every internet platform), and, well, there's not much left to say. Except that Millie's …

5 Reasons Camp NaNoWriMo is Worth It // aka shameless self-advertising for my cabin

Camp NaNoWriMo is just around the corner, and if you’re anything like me, you’re staring blankly at your computer screen and wondering how on earth you’ll scrape together the time (let alone the CREATIVE ENERGY) to participate. I feel you, friends. School is a monster. No, skip that – LIFE is a monster. A monster …

The 20 Questions Book Tag // in which my inner book-dragon emerges

Hello, minions! It seems a little boring to start things off by declaring "I'VE BEEN TAGGED," but... I mean... I've been tagged. By Kinsey @Over the Withers, to be precise, and with the 20 Questions Book Tag. Which means I've been given free license to scream about books for the next 7.2 minutes of your …

Open-ended Questions for Introspective Souls // eternal joy vs. temporal okayness

Lately, I've been having trouble sleeping. Not in a dark, dramatic, "the cares of this world keep me up," kind of way. Or in an, "I'm an incredibly unhealthy being who surfs the internet when I should be sleeping," kind of way. (I may be a teenager, but I'm not THAT far gone...) I'm not …

Project Inspire // appreciating some pretty cool people

Hello, minions! Today, we clear the stage for Project Inspire. What is Project Inspire, you ask? *snickers* Look, I'm a rather miserly soul when it comes to my writing, and generally maintain the attitude of-- But I'm not so arrogant that I won't admit if it weren't for the people who've cheered me on over …

Blogs, Clogs, and Fatty Frogs // ’cause what else would I name a bloggiversary post?

*crashes into your Friday with flashing lights and heaps of blogging glitter* GUYS. The Sarcastic Elf is two years old. *freaks out* Yes, you read that correctly -- it's been 730 days since I flung myself headlong into the bottomless pit known as "blogging." 730 days since clueless, wide-eyed, 15-year-old Sarah was swallowed by her …

Brush Pens, British Chaps, and Star Wars// another art dump

Well hello, my minions! It's been quite some time since I've posted any art, and the main reason for this is I haven't DONE any art. NaNoWriMo took center stage, and after that... *mysteriously swirls robe* Who knows? (Which is a fancy way of saying I'm a human train-wreck who doesn't know how to organize …

Callings and Accomplishments // overcoming the crippling weight of stress

Life is hard. (As Sarah blows us away by stating the obvious...) It's 2 o' clock. It's Thursday. And I'm staring at my keyboard, knowing full well that a blog post should have been published an hour ago, even though I've only just started writing one. So much for preparedness. I have four unfinished paintings …
