Being a human being

My body has had enough of sitting at a desk. I feel like my muscles are congested. I feel like I need to stand up and stretch until my fingertips graze the sky, and my feet reach the center of the earth. I can’t take any more applications that crash. I can’t share any more […]

Being sick and ambitious

It really stinks when you have all of these great ideas for your digital life, but you’re sick, and you just can’t bear to sit at the computer and work on them.  That was me last week. I felt bad. I was tired, lightheaded, lethargic, and at times, nauseous. I wasn’t blogging, so I worried […]

It won’t fit into the Magical Realism category because it won’t fit all the criteria. I’m […]

Why would I want to write a novel?

So I thought I wanted to write a novel, but now I’m not so sure. It’s hard work! I stated in my last post that I would be participating in NaNoWriMo, but without an outline or a plot. I’m creating characters, and so far I’ve got six of them and a place called Jay’s Bar […]
