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 […]

autumnal

We went apple picking on Friday and did not intend to look for pumpkins but then there was the Most Perfect Pumpkin and it had to come home with us. Not even going to carve it, it is too perfect in its perfect pumpkinyness. I am so glad it is finally fall. September was a […]

hiatus time again

My brain does not like summer in general and this one in particular. It is too hot and too bright. I’m tired at odd times of day and I forget to buy almond milk for my coffee. I was already planning on curling up into my sweaters and my head in the fall but I […]

anniversary

Yesterday was our first wedding anniversary. Earlier this year we had to print out photos for our immigration interview so now they’re scattered about the apartment, popping up like mushrooms. I had a feeling we were both going to go the predictable book route for the paper anniversary gifts but Adam surprised me with the […]

miscellaneous post of miscellany – june 2015 edition

I keep forgetting to blog. I used to blog so often that I had to grasp at things to fill up spaces between flax-golden tales and now there are so many unblogged about bits and pieces piling up that I don’t know where to start so I don’t and then nothing gets blogged at all […]

springtime

My apologies for the lack of blog updates. I haven’t had much to update about, I have been hibernating and writing and re-writing. Apparently writing a book entirely wrong the first time is just a thing I do. I think it is back on track now. Months ago I said aloud (Twitter counts as aloud) […]

winter wonders

I’ve been hibernating. January went and vanished on me, but I think it almost always does, in the coldness and the snow. The February snow currently falling outside the windows looks like an aggressively shaken snow globe. New York in the snow is cold and magical. I’ve been writing and then re-writing and then going back to blank […]

2014 thoughts & favorites

I am trying not to say things like “this year flew by” or “where did 2014 go?” but I am thinking them, very hard. I was sick a lot this year. I had my wisdom teeth removed. In a lot of ways this year was about taking better care of myself and I’m not sure how […]

happy birthday margaret atwood, the slightly belated event

Last night this happened. Me, Chuck Wendig, Lev Grossman & a surprise Neil Gaiman celebrated Margaret Atwood‘s 75 birthday at the 92nd St Y and it was magical and amazing and I think I managed not to appear quite as nervous as I felt. For the occasion I composed 75 Imaginary Birthday Cakes. I only […]
