Some Sights from NH and MA

I'm visiting my family of origin for the first time in two years (thanks, plague), and I just wanted to share a few photos of some neat stuff! I assume this is a scouting troop project. A lake. The northeast has more marshy land than one would expect. Theoretically, I love a swamp. Glenn Ellis… Continue reading Some Sights from NH and MA

Limbo

I've been feeling stuck in the in between for years now. It's been perpetual waiting in so many categories: home, work, family, and though I've broken out in some regard, I still feel like I'm floating. There's no anchor, no starting gun, no momentum. Life feels like a liminal space. A forever corridor with a… Continue reading Limbo

Everything That Feels So Good

I heard this song for the first time today (yeah, I'm late by about half a year, what of it?), and, like, it's perfect??? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AGPdXYG1msg Anyway, just had a religious experience this afternoon and felt understood on the deepest level imaginable. It's whatever. P.S. I don't know if I like that video or not (I'm… Continue reading Everything That Feels So Good

Befriending The Birds

There is a giant blue jay who comes to my porch, and he is destined to be my friend, I swear it. The problem is, he's too damn smart: this bird has knees. (Husband and I maintain that little birds don't have knees, but bigger ones do, and it directly correlates to brain size.) The… Continue reading Befriending The Birds

Moving, Vaccine, Writing, Oh, My…

We moved. Again. It has been a struggle. I hate moving. I think most people do. I've made light of it in the past, and I think these are some of my best blogs, but these last two times have taken something out of me that I'm not sure I can get back. You know… Continue reading Moving, Vaccine, Writing, Oh, My…

Well, December’s Here, And I Failed

But only by a little. 43,785 - That's how many words I ended up either revising, rewriting, or straight up newly drafted during November. I'm taking the old Vacancy serial and revamping it for a trilogy of novels and thought I'd use NaNo to help track my progress. I didn't take it as seriously as… Continue reading Well, December’s Here, And I Failed

Rolled a 20 for Con

Warning: Body Horror What a week! I'm down two teeth and up one mental breakdown, so I'm fairly certain those cancel each other out which makes sense because I'm largely still on track for NaNo and generally would use the word "fine" to describe how I'm feeling. I'm sure for some people having one's wisdom… Continue reading Rolled a 20 for Con

Cruel To Be Kind

Look, I am a big fan of redemption arcs. I love to see a bad guy made good, a 180 in the direction of the light, but in this life I don't think you or I or anyone owe the people who haven't considered us human for the last four years much of anything at… Continue reading Cruel To Be Kind

Today All I Can Think About Is The Tree

My goddamned phone won't let me think about anything else, so today, apparently, all my ire and anxiety is reserved solely for the 50 foot piece of nature that literally and figuratively uprooted and just fucked so much of my shit up. You'd think I would be concerned with the election, but I already expended… Continue reading Today All I Can Think About Is The Tree

Nontraditional NaNo and Me

It's National Novel Writing Month, and this will be the first time in a long time that I won't be participating in a normal way. I'm sort of sad about that, especially since I'm actually in the exact kind of mood that writing a first draft of something requires (the desire to just kinda go… Continue reading Nontraditional NaNo and Me
