How to Eat a Chicken Pot Pie. Still going strong, since 2014. Well, by "strong" I mean it still gets read by people in the Ukraine, once in a while. Do they have chicken pot pies there? They must. I want to write funny/sad/angry without agonizing. I want to give cryptic titles to my essays … Continue reading It Took Two Hours to Write This?
It is also not a good post. It is, in fact a terrible post, and I clearly learned nothing from last years Nano. Maybe I should have done the novel writing. I still can! I can do whatever I want, it turns out. What I want to do most these days is get mad at … Continue reading This is Not a Fake Post
Welcome to Nanopoblahblah 2019! Where I pretend like I'm going to write something worth reading 30 days in a row! Except that this time I'm pretending to write something worth reading 10 days not in a row. Or 10 days in a row and then I'm out. Or, y'know. just 10 times at random throughout … Continue reading This Time Will Be Different
Turns out the rechargeable ancillary cat and I have more in common than irrepressible cuteness, a love of naps and a need to frantically dig through the garbage once a day. As of late, he has taken to stealth Ninja attacks on the old lady cats, and while he seems to have a vague idea … Continue reading Little Pig, Little Pig
Well shit! I almost forgot! Here it is almost the end of the month and I’m on the road to Georgetown, CO with my mom and sis and three dogs for our annual birthday trip. So it’s been a busy month. Kid got in some trouble. Had to learn to navigate some systems and some … Continue reading Are We There Yet?
I just went back and read a few of my essays and while some are still funny *pats self on back*, I really do like this misanthropic groove. I’m starting to think it has become an excuse. The writing workshop did not solve all of my writing problems. But I did create a complete, mediocre … Continue reading My Own Worst Frenemy
Why did I just renew That Shameless Hussy? WHY? WHY? The whole point of changing my blog name was because I didn't feel it accurately represented what I was trying to do, or who I was at 50 as opposed to when I started blah blah blah blah blah...yet I miss her. Ah well. So … Continue reading I’m Already Sorry I Wrote This
I just changed the date of my last post to May 1. Now I'm still on track for my "publish every month" goal. So there. It's not that I don't have anything to say. I have plenty to say. On the way to the gym, when I'm folding laundry, when I'm lying awake at … Continue reading I Feel Fine
I am too! The first anthology in which I have the privilege of being included dropped on the 26th, and already it is first on Amazon in books about potty training. I'm secretly hoping it hits #1 for "Books About Unconventional Uses for Air Freshener" but it could be a minute on that. I KNOW … Continue reading I Am a Best-Selling Author
So I'm back from Italy. As I obligated myself to post once a month, this is my offering for April. Don't get too excited, it is fairly uninspired and I have rescued it from the trash twice, only because I don't want to start again. I am going to be in two upcoming anthologies, which … Continue reading My trip to Italy: An Interview
