A Somber Story

A Somber Story

Well HELLO, folks. I didn't write anythingj last week because the March for Life happened and I ended up going. (It was really awesome.) (Proof of its awesomeness can be seen in the fact that there were 225,000 human beings in one tiny space and I still say it's awesome.) I had a really nice [...]

In Defense of Pink Spray-Paint // a short story

Well well, my friends, happy Thursday! For lack of entertaining stories or inspirational tragic musings, I come bearing a short-story. A very old short-story I wrote last summer and like quite a bit. Behold:   In Defense of Pink Spray-PaintShe sings while she paints, and sometimes dances, but no one cares because this is the [...]

The Elf Returneth // resurrections + resolutions + a rad new decade

The Elf Returneth // resurrections + resolutions + a rad new decade

Before I welcome myself back and gush about the new year, I'd like to issue a formal apology for using the word "rad" in my post's title. Do I like the word rad? No. Is it a redundant word that should be eradicated (*coughs* eRADicated... okay now I hate myself) from the English language? Absolutely. [...]

Broken-Down Band // preptober prompts + week 4, day 4

Hello, humans! Today is technically the last day of my Preptober Prompts week, so before we get into it, I think I’d better explain what’s been going on with my weird posting schedule, and why I’m proving to be such a shabby host. Basically, writers’ block. (Blame it all on writers’ block.) No, but seriously. [...]

The Catastrophe of Christmas // preptober prompts + week 4, day 3

Yeah, so. This is late. It's been a rough few days...     The Catastrophe of Christmas Tramping through six inches of snow and being brained in the face by a snowball is not Liriel’s idea of fun. In fact, her idea of fun is so radically different from the current situation, she’s contemplating writing [...]

Common Sense // preptober prompts + week 4, day 2

Heyo, humans, welcome back to week #4 of Preptober Prompts, hosted by yours truly! Today's prompt is... *drum roll*   And le song I chose--   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-2CQ1GpMA2o For the record, this isn't my favorite song. But I do find it interesting, and it fits Liriel fairly well, so huzzah for that! (Also, the Orchardists are [...]

Feral Amusement // preptober prompts + week 4, day 1

Hullo, humans! Thus begins the last stretch of October until NaNoWriMo (when we'll bid our sanity farewell), and with it comes Week #4 of Preptober Prompts. (Otherwise known as my week.) Who's excited?? (If you didn't shout "ME!!!" at your screen with the gusto of a tone-deaf rooster, I'm ashamed of you.) If you missed [...]

Bashing My First Book // a glimpse into glenborn + commentary

Bashing My First Book // a glimpse into glenborn + commentary

Leaves are falling, wind is blowing, grocery-store candy shelves are being cleared faster than Gimli drank that tankard of ale, and a miserable Sarah Baran is once again entombed in blankets and wailing about the oncoming cold. Ah, October. How I hate thee. (For those who aren't aware, I am part lizard. Cold and I [...]
