A Literary Pause….

I don’t often cross-post things I announce on my Facebook wall on this blog, or vice versa. I mean, really, since I have mostly the same group of friends, and I don’t need strangers with Google to know what I ate for lunch or where I’m going clubbing on Friday, what’s the point? However, this […]

Literary Libations: Now Featuring Author Deanie Humphrys-Dunne!

Life has been pretty overwhelming this week, between an increased pressure regarding work/money/practical things, social obligations, trying to keep up with “optional things” like the workshop over at Writer’s Village I’ve been taking and wish I had more time for and this blog, and making time for the people I care about. I’ve been going […]

Literary Libations: Fantasy, Romance, & Colour With Stacy Bender

Today is Cinco de Mayo here in the States, so I basically have two options: 1)Stay up really late and post this week’s “Literary Libations” before heading off to drink at a friend’s party tomorrow, or 2)Wait until 8 PM tomorrow, when I’m exhausted and really just want to see the “Amazing Race”finale. Because I […]

A 36-Hour Fling With Lena Dunham….

“We don’t even know if her writing is any good. And what if she wakes up, and she’s 30, and what does she know how to do?” “She knows how to have fun. She does what she wants to do, when she wants to do it, and she has fun–and then she thinks about that […]

Feeling A Little Better….

I’ve been feeling a little better the past few days, although I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s because I had a really laid-back weekend with a lot of rest and catching up on TV. In fact, all I did on Friday night was watch sitcoms and episodes of Shameless with The Guy I Am Currently […]

Everybody’s (Not) Working For The Weekend….

As I briefly referenced, but didn’t really explain in my previous posts, I’ve found myself suddenly unemployed. As a freelancer, it’s hard to be “unemployed”. You understand there are times when you’ll have more work than you can handle, and other times when the jobs aren’t there. However, my time working as a freelance writer […]

Pinteresting?

On a totally unrelated note, not only am I now an extraordinarily *interesting* human being, I’m quite Pinteresting. Friend me on there or visit my boards if you’re as in love with the idea as I am, or want to know more about what I love. For those who have known me for ages, you […]

Recovery-Based Infatuations….

It seems like there’s a lot I’d like to sit down and write about, mostly stressful personal situations going on in my life. I’d like to update the world on the ongoing struggles with my health, and also an amazingly upsetting incident a few weeks ago that involved The Mother Of The Guy I Am […]

When Creativity Grows Routine….

One of the negative side effects of writing for a living is that I don’t always find the joy and excitement in writing about other things in my spare time. In fact, by the end of the day, I’m often so burned out from interacting with a computer screen and keyboard, all I want to […]

Way More Than 1001 Things…

Yesterday, at the Top 25 trivia tournament (where we did not win, but finished a perfectly respectable 7th place), one of the questions referenced The 1001 Books You Should Read Before You Die. Today, The Guy I Am Currently Dating sent me a list of these books…and of course, I was curious to see how […]
