She remembers a time when she was young and beautiful. Her body moved with grace and everything felt fresh and new. Things were much easier then. Now she is full of things that she’d never dreamed existed and they slow her down, make her feel tired and sluggish. She hadn’t smoked in her youth, but… Continue reading The Mother
These are not normal people. I looked around the space of the Convention Center, noting the colors and the boisterous laughter; people shouting to each other as they all stood in a line waiting to go up the escalators. So many people. That one there. I’m pretty sure that’s from a movie I’ve seen before,… Continue reading On Cosplay
I haven’t written for my blog since February. All the usual excuses, of course – too busy. The post I was going to write the weekend that I skipped it was going to be about friends and how blessed I am, so I think I’ll start there. In February, I was lucky enough to have… Continue reading Blessings

I’m proud to say that I have a plot ready this year and… Continue reading IWSG – NaNoWriMo
I’m nearing the end of my second week living with Beau again, and things are going very well. There are days where it’s still really weird.
