Apparently, today is Thanksgiving. (Otherwise known as "National Day of Food".) I would first like to state that I'm rather annoyed my posting schedule has to coincide with a holiday. It's very inconsiderate of the holiday. I had something lovely all written out, AHEAD OF TIME, just waiting to be posted. But then I realized… Continue reading Thanks Be to the Simple Stuff
Or, in this case, more stupid and less wisdom, because it was all utterly stupid and therefore, zero wisdom to be had *cough* Hello, people, it's me again. Yesterday my family went to see Thor: Ragnarok in the theater, and seeing as I've once again totally dropped the ball on preparedness for my weekly post,… Continue reading Wisdom from the Utterly Stupid: Thor Ragnarok
Heeeeey, guys... I'm totally not embarrassed about failing to post last week. Are you embarrassed? 'Cause I'm certainly not. *cough* There was a reason though. See? I'm not completely lazy. The reason, guys, is... None of your business. Moving on. This week, I was racking my brain for the easiest things to post about so… Continue reading Van Gogh, Da Vinci, and a Cool Little Fish Child
Guys, I'll be honest: I had no clue what I was going to write about this week. Therefore, I'm writing about the process of not knowing what to write. In case you ever want to try it yourself. **WARNING** What follows is not recommended for control freaks. It has been known to cause allergic reactions,… Continue reading The Stages of Not Knowing What to Post
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
