They say Seasonal Affective Disorder is a thing, and I absolutely believe them. They also say people in sunny climates have trouble dealing with unpleasant emotions. It seems no matter where you live, you can't win on that front. But, for me, I feel this restlessness... an unhappiness I can't quite pin. Is it anxiety? … Continue reading Winter or Restlessness?
If you're anything like me, you swing wildly between two ends of the spectrum. Me writing a post: This is gonna be epic. It's one of the best posts I've written to date! Me wishing anyone would view, like, or comment: What was I thinking? I'm garbage at this! Why do I bring this up? … Continue reading What if I don’t FEEL like a bookdragon?
Cara at Fluky Fiction is hosting 2 Weeks of Love event full of short stories, author interviews, and other fun things. She also decided to feature one of my flash fiction/short stories today as part of said event!

Ok, so, to date, I've never re-visited a book on my blog. Especially one I posted about so recently, but I just can't help thinking about Watching Glass Shatter. That makes my book hangover for this, what... like a week so far? Not that I mind. I like thinking about characters and books. I feel … Continue reading Book Inspired Musings
"No one told me that." I could feel myself hyperventilating. With this many people around, I seriously needed to lock it down. "I guess we all thought you knew." Sarah's voice was calm and low. She, too, seemed all too aware of our surroundings, and I couldn't be more grateful. "Abbie, you had to know … Continue reading Lost in Love
I can't believe it. I was kissing Charlie Rose. The Charlie Rose. The Charlie Rose of the It Could Only Be You number one hit from the radio. The Charlie Rose I was screaming at while he sang on stage just an hour ago. The Charlie Rose that noticed me out of thousands of people in the crowd and pulled me … Continue reading Work in Progress…
So, maybe it's the holidays, or the natural reflection the new year brings, but I woke up today feeling full of gratitude. I can't tell you how much time in my life I've spent feeling different. In school, I played the cello. Carrying around an instrument the size of you (and taking it very seriously … Continue reading I actually feel like I belong for once…
So, I know I said I was going to be organic... but maybe this IS me being organic? I've seen the BoocShare Read Around the World Challenge for awhile, but all I could think was: I clearly need to learn more languages. I finally braved a look at the site, and they break it down … Continue reading This is fun!
I'll be honest friends, I'm not great at resolutions. Sure I've tried all of the normal ones: I'm going to eat better, I'm going to be fitter, I'm going to be happier. Problem is: prolonged motivation is a bitch. Excuse my French, but I've just never been good when the lure of the pie/couch/guilt sets … Continue reading New Year… New… Anything?
This was written after seeing Rachel's Picture Prompt. If you haven't checked out her blog, you should. She gazed out the window watching the snow fall. Christmas was tough. Although it had been three years since they'd received the news, the holiday still held a fresh pain that, at times, took her breath away. Not … Continue reading An Imperfect Holiday
