And no, it's not porn. It's a quote from user sunflower-b-pondicus about adulting/adulthood: "sometimes life sucks, and knowing that it might get better doesn't always make it suck any less, but you'll never get to the non-sucky days without enduring the suckiness". I love the first part of this: days suck, and some vague sunny … Continue reading so i found something on Tumblr…
Just wanted to let all y'all know that in response to my cathartic complaint earlier this morning (aka 'Query Letter Update' [look at me using hyperlinks correctly!]), I literally spent what feels like seven hours researching literary agents on my new QueryTracker account (yes, I've already spent almost four months querying without a QueryTracker account, do not … Continue reading Pulled on my big girl pants today (do people still use that phrase?)
Kinda feel like I'm at the end of my rope here. I did everything right: did not submit my first draft after NaNoWriMo, took four years to revise and edit multiple drafts, got beta readers and workshoppers to help, followed the query letter instructions and made multiple drafts, for input from one of my old … Continue reading Query Letter Update…
It's kind of hard to be an adult nowadays, huh? Especially a millennial-type adult, with all the controversy and the stigma and the election and the economy. But I am an adult, one who goes to her job every day and pays her bills and does her chores and plans and schedules out her weeks … Continue reading I am a grown adult…who drinks out of a dinosaur.
They say you're supposed to blog everyday. Well, I can't subscribe to that because I don't have something to put into words every day and I don't always feel like writing. So, once again, abjure the norm and screw the rules. Second, I am slowly spiraling down into NaNoWriMo prep so I have a feeling … Continue reading 2 Quick Thoughts
Or at least how you and others "perceive" your viewing habits? One day I'll watch a very serious documentary and the next day, sometimes the next hour, I'll watch cartoons. Like, kids' cartoons. And you wonder what other people think: you want people to see you as cultured for watching documentaries but also carefree for watching cartoons, but … Continue reading Does anyone else think too much about television?
If you guys would like to check it out, go here to check out a little thought from Writerly Wonderings, one of my Tumblr blogs. Like I said, I'm a lamenting, yet-to-be-published writer, after all.
I just saw something on Pinterest about how you have to always establish credibility on your blog, so your readers will like, believe, etc. you. Ain't nobody got time for that. I'm just here to jot down my thoughts and if you don't like/believe them, there are a million other blogs. I envy and admire … Continue reading Credibility?
And no, I don't mean making glorious canvasses that you are proud to put on your own walls. No, I just mean the lovely, focused calm you get when you're painting a shoebox. The aim is to upcycle it and make people ooh and aww over it on Instagram like some previous crafts (nothing altruistically … Continue reading A Brief Word on Crafting, Painting in Particular
First of all: DON'T EVER DO IT. Literally no one ever wants to listen to constipated goat singing on the one half hour lunch you have away from your job. Aside from the fact that work has a horrible policy of being completely idiotic, you have "colleagues" who don't know how to do their job. … Continue reading Karaoke at Work
