re-visioning

This post is going to be about revising. It will not be anywhere near as good as this post about revising, but I figured I’d give it a whirl anyway. I’ve gotten fairly familiar with how this process works for me, and as you all know by now, ’tis the summer of revision around here. […]

stuff no one told me

Invariably, whenever I go on internet hiatus I find something upon my return that reminds me why, though I may take occasional breaks, I do truly love the web. This time around it was this blog: Stuff No One Told Me Marvelous illustrated life lessons by Alex Noriega, and the blog is fairly new so […]

monday miscellany

Stuff accomplished during the week of no internet: Finished three (3!) paintings. One is off to its recipient already, another is waiting for payment & the third is available on Etsy.

Maybe machine is the wrong word, they’re like, weird geeky contraptions you find outside supermarkets and at tourist attractions, gumball machines and those ones that squash pennies into miniature pictures of historical landmarks or whatever. I can never tell what he does to […]

flax-golden tales: poppets

poppets You don’t get to choose your poppet. Some people like to say your poppet chooses you, but that’s silly. They’re just dolls, after all. Matches between poppet and person are made by chance, not choice. You receive the poppet that you’re meant to have, because there are no other options. Poppets are often returned. […]

summer in the revisionland hotel

I have extensive notes from my agent (my agent, yay!) in hand and I am gearing up to spend the next several weeks in the Revisionland Hotel. A summer of tiki torch nights and umbrella drinks and writing writing writing. And it will be writing writing writing, because more than “change this, take out that” […]
