I’M BACK!!! (…not really)

Believe it or not, I had something really epic planned for my return to blogging. #NailedIt #Not Yeah, yeah. Hello to you too. I'm late. Whoops. If it's any consolation, I missed you guys during my hiatus. And I'm sure you missed me too, right? *crazed eyeballs* Right? Sadly, my return can't be punctuated with …

So Long, Farewell, Aufweirdesiangueu… I don’t know how to spell that word.

Well, my minions, we've had a merry lark together, haven't we? The Sarcastic Elf has been alive and well for almost sixteen months now, and in that time, I've met so many cool people, and learned so many cool things. My writing life has expanded astronomically through this endeavor, and I can truly say it's …

The Enigmas of an Introvert’s Notebook

Writers are an odd lot. Yes, I know, statement of the century. But seriously. We wander around graveyards with the express purpose of stealing dead people's names, space out of conversations to contemplate which innocent character we're going to murder next, and hurt ourselves on purpose so we can "know what it feels like".

Introversion, Introspection, and the Emotions of an INTJ—a ton of tags

That title sounds way cooler than the actual post. *cough* Hello, my minions.

Sorry…

Yo. Due to circumstances beyond my control, you all must be deprived of my presence today. I will be back next week with boatloads of sarcasm and glitter to go around. Be patient. In the meantime, have a picture of my cat. (I took an entire photography class last year, and this is the only …

A Trip Down Ancestry Lane—ft. my mother, a graveyard, and a toy car

Last week, as life decided to pile up on us, mom, Anna, and I thought it high time we shirked our responsibilities and went out for a mid-afternoon Starbucks. We're really not lazy, I promise. (Well, actually, I might be, but that's a different subject.) But this time of year is our book business's busiest …
