the starless sea

Hello website that has been languishing away and gathering dust, it’s been awhile. I even managed to miss the 10 year anniversary of the blog back in the summer but I was busy turning 40 and trying to finish writing this book. It’s finished, by the way. It’s called The Starless Sea. It will be […]

2017

Oh, 2017. You were a year. I’m not even sure where 2017 went. It seems like it was just snowing and now it’s snowing again. Perpetual winter though I’m pretty sure there was a summer in between. The still-new house is more house-like, more us and more lived in. There are still places missing furniture […]

birthday

Today I am 39. My grandmother used to say she was 39, every year, and when I was young and my dad turned 40 I was very confused as to how he could be older than his mother. Math is hard. Age is just a number. I believe this means the website/blog is 9 years […]

springtime & snow

It is officially spring and we are still buried in snow. Confused little flowers are trying to bud in the yard and the sun feels spring-like sometimes, coercing things to melt. Slowly. Adam took some photos of me mid-blizzard last week. We got two feet of snow. Most of it is still here. There are […]

last day of 2016

This was a year. Good things first: I have a house. More than just a house I have a space that is mine and a place that is ours and I am such an introvert homebody Cancerian moon child that this brings me a good deal of joy. Also within that house I am currently […]

lovely, dark and deep

I took this photo in my yard. I have a yard now. Possibly obvious, but I no longer live in Manhattan. I left the city in a blur of cardboard boxes and craziness and I owe a great number of people goodbye cocktails that never happened and probably even more people a “by the way […]

happy bookaversary

The Night Circus was first published five years ago today. It’s been a wonderful, strange, emotional roller coaster since then and I am still so very grateful to everyone who embraced and supported the book and visited the circus. Thank you. I have been a bad blogger this year. I have been very deep in […]

goodbye, 2015

Here we are at the end of the year again. I have had my least productive blogging year possibly ever. I am sorry, blog. I think this post will knock the last 2014 post off the front page, so that’s something. I have spent a lot of 2015 not on the internet, which has been […]

post-nanowrimo time again

I keep forgetting it is December, probably because I finished my NaNoWriMo-ness early this year. I do hope all of you who NaNo-ed enjoyed yourselves, regardless of how many words you wrote, and I hope you’re proud of yourselves because you should be. All I really wanted to do myself was add 50k to this […]

nanowrimo time again

I have realized it’s been quite some time since I wrote a proper National Novel Writing Month post. I pseudo-participated the last 2 years and might do the same this year just because I’m trying to finish a draft and I do so love a wordcount graph, but this post is mostly a refresher about […]
