Author

Author, librarian, introvert. A grand lover…of coffee. My patronus is Grumpy Cat and my house is Slytherin, but I’m classified as squib because there is no magic in my heart. Cursed to live during interesting times.

Procrastinator in Chief

The better soul of the house, and probably the smartest too. Definitely the cutest. She’s what gets me out of bed in the mornings and makes my life far more joyous every day than I deserve.  ♥

{175} To Busy to Be

That's where I am right now. I have been on a long daily streak of writing blog posts on my own blog and cross posting to Medium. That streak came to a crashing halt during finals week at Florida State University when I and my colleagues had to drop everything to...

{174} What makes a productive day?

Between my own sense of panic and the culture I grew up in, I have no clear concept of what "accomplishment" looks like. Meaning: when is enough, enough? When can you reach the point of the day and say, "I have done what I needed to do"? I'm not sure I've ever reached...

{173} What do you do?

I've always been haunted by the question, "what do you?" It is just nonsensical to me because what we do in our lives is...everything? But that's  not the intention with the asking. What is meant: what JOB do you have? What is it that earns you MONEY? What is your...

{171} Everyday Politics

[tl;dr - do one activist thing a day, such as make a phone call, and you too can save the world!!!!] There is a lot of frustration right now around the sense of helplessness that liberals and progressives are feeling, stemming out of a general consensus that we,...

{170} Post-surgery Keely update

Keely has bad teeth, but she has three less now. [warning: talking about dental/tooth damage] So, the plan was for the vet to extract ONE tooth. Unfortunately when they got a good look, they found a mess. They ended up pulling two pre-molars, which led to one of her...

{169} to repair with gold

2016, like 2009, has been for me personally "the year of therapy." Not that therapy is always something so neatly boxed up with start and end dates -- the therapy of 2009 started in mid 2008 and ended in late 2010, for instance. Even then I knew it was not a "done...

{168} When Authors are Human too

History Lesson! I was a young girl in the 70s and 80s (I “graduated” high school in 1986, so those where my years of coming up into being a young adult). I read a lot, and sometimes dreamed of writing stories for others to read. Writers were my favorite celebrities...

{167} Casting couch

I have to 'cast' characters I write with actors I know, and honestly, it is a lot of fun. Right now I'm mulling on a seekrit projekt, and one of the leads is played in my head by JR Bourne (he of Star Gate 1 and Teen Wolf fame): RAWR!!!  It's not just hot men, though....

{166} the ripped up souls of spanish moss

What if every strand of spanish moss is a fallen angel? Angels worn thin by human hubris, angels whose wings faltered on their way to redemption. Choirs of angels laced together in anguish and mortality, exposed to the finite forms of descent: rain and sun and wind...

{165} Courage or folly?

I'm not known for taking risks. I am, in fact, absurdly risk-averse, so much so that my therapist is really over it. I have already written about pissing off my therapist, and that she is demanding that I take some risks. Oh, she didn't put it that way -- her words...

{164} Just Keely things, update edition

My dearest Keely is still unfurling her personality for me. She's been my companion for just over two months now and I think she realizes that she's here to stay. She's barking more, for one thing. Not a lot, usually when there is a loud noise outside she doesn't...
