You’ll find a little bit of everything on this blog, whether it’s poetry, humor, or stories. Most of what I write is true, and some of what I write is fiction. (You will probably be able to tell which is which without me telling you.) Some of what I write is terrible, ridiculous, or simply meant to help me blow off steam. I apologize for that in advance.
If you read this blog, you’re going to have to be somewhat lax with me. I find editing incredibly tedious. I can be a touch sarcastic. And I insist on starting sentences with conjunctions. Mainly, I write to clear my head. If it resonates with you, that’s awesome. And please say so, because your comments validate me as a human being… Oops. I took that one step too far, didn’t I? I love comments, and it’s always nice to feel appreciated.
If you’re interested, these are my personal favorites:
When I Write I Am a Lion (why I write)
Requiem For a Squirrel (short story)
Once Upon a Time We Called It Arugula (short story)
Why I Steal My Son’s Candy (another fun one)
I Wanna Be a Cavewoman. And I Wanna Be Legally Permitted to Club My Husband Whenever We Don’t Agree. (This post was freshly pressed.)
Minivans Weren’t Built for that Kind of Speed (the story of my daughter’s birth)
Broken Toys (This is not a favorite per se, but it does give background on our life with a special needs child.)
Elva Without Her Stars (poetry)
