Reblog: Weird Ways to Make Money As a Writer


Ran across this in the reader this morning. It’s a little bit funny, but also a little bit inspiring/encouraging. 🙂 Enjoy! 💜

My hands were shaking. I was quitting a job with AmeriCorps earlier than planned, and felt like I was back in my last semester of college (minus Pub …

Life Before the Internet?


Maybe fate was on my side two-fold that day. One in that my friend's family had a computer and two in that that computer had a modem and was set up to dial-in to America Online.

Prompt: Voting


Do you vote in political elections? This is a hot-button topic for me in most instances, but I’m going to keep it short and simple for this blog. I’m in the U.S. and yes, I do vote in our political elections. I think everyone who is eligible to vote should strive to be duly informed on the candidates and issues at hand and then vote. That extends to both local and national elections...

Oh, no no no no. I only eat candy on special occasions and during catastrophic life...

Story Snippet: Marked for Failure


Tina spun around mid-stride and caught my eyes square with her own. “Really?” Her voice was thick with exasperated disbelief.  This wasn’t the first time I’d disappointed her and it likely wouldn’t be the last. No matter how hard I tried, how much I wanted to do better, to be better, it always seemed to end up the same way. Every single time frightened me to the core. Would this be the final...

Is it Feb-you-ary or Fe-brew-ary?


It turns out that according to good ol’ Merriam-Webster both pronunciations are correct, though dropping the R definitely seems more common. Source: This little nugget of knowledge was inspired by the following meme that popped up in my feed this morning: Creator: Unknown. And also by my brain’s reaction, which was: Okay but, Fe-BREW-ary. Invest in coffee. Pour...
