Right. Well. Hi. It's almost island time and though I'm already there mentally, I'm way behind in my typical brand of furious preparation. Is my relative mellowness a side-effect of living through pandemic time? Possibly. Is there a guarantee that I won't go full tilt once I put my head... Continue reading

My heart has obviously not been into writing lately. My brain melted. Summer is too summery, and that's a half good/half pukey situation. Anyway. I did something careless and stupid and it stopped my writerly heart for a full five seconds. I accidentally deleted my desktop folder with the most... Continue reading

This past weekend I had a reunion of sorts with my immediate family. Now that we're all vaccinated, we had a chance to be together for the first time in a LONG time, and it was perfect. Our weekly zoom happy hours helped get us through this pandemic, but truly... Continue reading

I'm fascinated by writers who can do all the things concurrently, like do their writing jobs plus keep blogs (esp. some amazing, selfless ones that are very helpful to other writers) plus be funny and smart and amazing on social media. I am not that kind of writer. I'm a... Continue reading

Hi babes. I am in the full throes of spring fever but also my wheels are spinning on the writing front so that's always cause for celebration. I've been brainstorming like crazy about future blog posts, and I'm going to plug them in here in order to shame myself into... Continue reading

Life, am I right? It's been happening around me in so many intense ways lately, and I don't feel like writing about any of them, so I won't. Ok then, that felt good. It's like this when I go so long between posts, like, where do I start? So I... Continue reading

Where were you when you got the news that Kurt Cobain died? Most people in my generation can't remember what we had for dinner last night but we can recreate that moment for you in a word-picture so detailed you'd think it had been commissioned for a million dollars. I... Continue reading

Have you gotten the sense that joy has been on hold, if not outright cancelled in the past year? I've experienced good times, but always with my fingers crossed, trying to appreciate the moment but aware that in the background, something just isn't right. That's the pandemic, of course. That...

I promise I won't keep doing "this time one year ago" posts, but today marks a pretty significant date. It's been exactly one year since Mike got "furloughed" from his main gig, writing questions for a trivia company. Like so many things being thrown at us at the time, we... Continue reading

I've been spending a fair bit of time with my old journals for this little instagram project (it's still fun, so I'm still doing it), and one thing that strikes me over and over is how much I just... left out. Specific memories. Traditions and rituals. Details that live only... Continue reading

Who's out of blog practice? Yow. You'd think I'd have tons to say since I haven't written in so long, but you'd be wrong. It's nice that March is here, but it's also such a heavy thing to be aware of considering March was the last time most of us... Continue reading

Hi yo - I don't think this will be a blog-heavy month. I'm concentrating on honing my book query and researching agents, then once I have that up and running I'll be sketching out the framework for book 2. We'll see where that gets me and how long it takes.... Continue reading

I think I might have said this is going to be a big writing year for me, or I intended for it to be in any case, but if the first month of the year is an indicator - well, let's hope it's not. It's a pandemic, who cares? (How... Continue reading

Gee whiz guys, I write a halfway positive blog entry and within hours there's an insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. COOL. I'm hesitant to court that kind of jinxery in the universe again by going on about things that aren't strictly horrible, but I'd like to shine a light on... Continue reading

See you in hell 2020, I'm going to take a cue from the staggeringly hard-won results in Georgia and start this year INSPIRED. Inspired to be a better person, every day. To write. To move. To have the hard conversations that scare me. To volunteer my time, energy and resources... Continue reading

This will likely be the last time I write in here before it's 2021. I will not be trying to make any kind of "year in review" post because, well holy feck, you know why. If any of us are still here by New Year's Eve, let's call it a... Continue reading

As you probably know by now, Christmas Eve is my #1 part of the holiday altogether, and I've loved every one, every tradition we've observed over the years, from the after-Christmas mass meat pie and presents with my cousins on my mom's side at our grandparents' apartment to making visits...

I've been thinking lately about what's at the heart of holiday magic, what it truly means to me when I make that reference. A big constant is family (hi have we met, etc.), and since gathering en masse is not so much in our plans this year, that's probably why... Continue reading

Growing up I assumed that holidays were reserved for family. I spent the big days with my family, and didn't even consider something like calling a friend until the day after. I don't think anybody ever told me this was the way it was, it was just something I felt.... Continue reading

It's December 2020, and things are about as dark as they get, yet I'm feeling as Christmas-y as I have in years and years. It must be a defense mechanism, making up for the state of the world (not to mention not knowing if it will be possible to see... Continue reading

Thanksgiving Eve is typically one of my top three days of the year, but I'm not going to complain about the fact that instead of jumping around in my skin waiting for my family to roll in for the holiday and the subsequent double-stuffed long weekend, I'm...not. It sucks and... Continue reading

Yesterday I turned 46 and it was a wholly, all-the-way-through perfect birthday. I would have loved to go out with friends and family of course, but I made the most of my pandemic chill-down, which included an outpouring of love from Mike and HR and my closest peeps, a productive...

Saturday was an insanely beautiful day, especially for November, so Mike, HR and I went around the corner for a celebratory al fresco lunch at our favorite place. We wanted to be around other people, within reason, and everyone we encountered was buoyant and smiling, well their eyes were smiling... Continue reading

Back in the old days I would occasionally get experimental on this blog and write for the sake of writing (as opposed to livestreaming my 2020 breakdown). I miss doing that, but everything happening in front of our eyes just seems too important to put aside. These days are about... Continue reading

Hey what's up hello. I'm doing great and not at all struggling with life in these re-spiking pandemic tymes and the increasingly bananas last month of the 2020 election cycle. Trying to find the words about these things at any given time is... not quite happening for ya girl. I'm... Continue reading
