Hermione Granger

Growing up, Harry Potter was a really important part of my life. Yes, I’m part of the Potter Generation and I’m quite proud of that, thank you very much. Those books were such a light in my life and I will always remember that special time I shared with them. Their stories brand new toContinue reading “Hermione Granger”

Silence No More

For most of my life, I’ve been known as outgoing. Always surrounded by friends or family and almost always talking. But under the surface, I’ve been hiding major parts of me because they didn’t fit with what I was seeing around me. Most of middle school I spent writing in class because it was anContinue reading “Silence No More”

Welcome to Baker Street

If you’ve talked to me in the past six months, you’ll know that I am extremely interested in the mind that is Sherlock Holmes. In any form he takes starting with the original Arthur Conan Doyle stories and going through to the popular BBC series. I absolutely love the mind of Sherlock Holmes and striveContinue reading “Welcome to Baker Street”

Reflections

I look back on the last year as most others do around the new year. Some big changes were made in my life and they took quite a bit of adjustment to accommodate. People walked out of my life because our shared journey wasn’t compatible with their necessary path through this life. I’ve finally madeContinue reading “Reflections”

Script

I wish I could narrate my life like a script with asides and footnotes. I’d be able to add inflection to the basic typography of the words on paper. Script is how we write out the universe. Why, then, should our lives not be words back to the universe? Stories. In the end, that’s whatContinue reading “Script”

Life’s Answers

Then society kicks in and starts writing rules. They say it’s for our protection. That we might hurt each other ifContinue reading “Life’s Answers”

Why I Get Sad When NaNo Ends

On December first, the NANoWriMo community rejoices in their victories or simply that NaNo is over. We party to celebrate calling them the “thank goodness it’s over” parties – or now that we don’t need all those extra words we shorten it to TGIO party. But on December first, I sit around being sad. I’veContinue reading “Why I Get Sad When NaNo Ends”

Different

I am a creative being spilling over my brim with insights and ideas. I watch when I’m silent instead of speaking words that are just forming on my tongue. I wait for the right moment when a pause comes between their prearranged words. They don’t even notice. Under the surface I’m raging. A storm builtContinue reading “Different”

Reflections Beyond the Masks

I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting this Halloween season. Halloween isn’t a typical time for reflecting but I do it every year. Halloween used to be my favorite time of year as a child – better than my birthday or even Christmas. Every year, I’d plan out my costume well enough ahead of timeContinue reading “Reflections Beyond the Masks”

NaNo Addiction

NaNo is barreling towards me as if it hasn’t seen me in forever and is coming to greet me with hugs and smooches and all sorts of embarrassing affection that I secretly love. I look forward to its visits every year knowing the excitement and energy it brings will always outweigh the annoyances. It bringsContinue reading “NaNo Addiction”
