I learned today that May is Short Story Month in the States. This makes me happy, not only because I like short stories so much but also because my own story will come out on the 29th. I find that rather apropos. Although I've written stories for as long as I can remember, it wasn't … Continue reading Short Story Month
I like happy coincidences. I'm sure I'm not the only one. Facebook reminded me that I had a flash fiction piece published two years ago today. And I've received word that one of my short stories will appear in the 2018 issue of Clamor, the University of Washington-Bothell's literary journal. It will come out on 29th May. … Continue reading Yay for me!
I hope everyone has a happy day today. I've always thought the best way to stay out of trouble, whether or not you're superstitious, is to curl up somewhere comfy with a good book and just get lost in the pages.
Today is World Book Day. How cool is that? As someone who has loved books and reading since I was little, it makes me happy that books have their own special day of recognition.

I'll admit, it's not quite as good as my birthday. But still tons of fun. And like most other cats, I do try to enjoy myself whenever possible. I will probably curl up with a good book at some point. However you choose to celebrate, I hope you have a wonderful day.
Ooo, look! A writing challenge! Can I keep it?! Can I? Can I? Pleeeeeeease?!!! Writing challenges. They're like pretty, shiny objects that I just have to have. Or a furry little kitty cat that I want to curl up with and cuddle. I will hug it and squeeze it and call it George. But it … Continue reading Another writing challenge
Letters. Who doesn't enjoy getting a letter? Sadly, in this age of text messages and emails, usually the letters that come in my post box are addressed to "Occupant". Or "Home Owner". And if it's not that, it's a bill. Bleh. I've always loved getting mail. When I was a young girl, I remember how … Continue reading For the love of letters
My poor blog. It’s sat neglected for months now. And it’s not like I haven’t been writing, because I have. Unfortunately, I haven’t been all that good about posting stuff here. I’ve thought about it. Big deal. So now I’m here, actively trying to be a better blog owner. And more importantly, a better writer. To … Continue reading Writing Into the Unknown
