Bedrooms, British Flats, and a Book Dragon’s Lair // a dysfunctional bedroom tour

Newsflash: I'm not on top of things. I know, I know, that's such a shock. [insert disinterest blinking here] Seeing as I'm not on top of things, this week found me scrambling last minute to provide something interesting to post about. (Which, at this point, isn't much of a rarity.) So I sat down and …

Between Worlds

Do you ever feel like you're careening at break-neck speed towards a goal that never gets closer? (Yes, that's a paradox. Bear with me.) At the beginning of August, I had plans. Big plans. I'd finally found my writing pace after months of being unproductive, and my book was flowing better than ever. I'd acquired …

The Return of the Blogger (and some long and mostly boring obligatory life updates)

Aaaaand she's back! Really!! This is not another trick!!! *confetti and fireworks and glitter even though no one will ever believe me ever again* I told you it wouldn't be long before I returned from my hiatus, and lo and behold, here I am, bringing sarcasm and glitter in my wake. You guys are troopers. …

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". (At …

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 …

How I Earned a Walmart Employee’s Undying Respect

Welcome back, peeps, to our weekly Thurs---er, Friday post. Today, I'll be sharing a strange and mildly fascinating experience that includes eyeglasses, introversion, and an Indian man. Woo woo. What some of you may not know is that my eyesight stinks. (To put it simply.) A trip to the eye-doctor has been a long time …

From the Heart of Discouragement to the Head of Pride

I almost didn't publish something today. Hang on, hang on, there's a reason. (There always is...) This wasn't just me being lazy and furtively ignoring my blogging accountability partner. (Which I would *cough* NEVER *cough cough* do... *choke*) The reason I almost didn't post today is ACTUALLY because of you guys. Yep. It's YOUR fault. …

Hindsight, Foresight, and a whole lot of 2018 Glitter

Every year, we always go through this routine of sappiness and sentimentalism, and every year, it's just as weird. I'm feeling slightly speechless as I type out the number 2018. Guys. It's 2018. I might actually slip a tear. 2017 has been a whirlwind, let me tell you, and I honestly don't remember most of …
