penetrates night’s solitude

Women: We Get Things Done

I may go back to some prior months in the days to come, but for today I’m going to stick to this month's work, which (somewhat ironically) means I’m stepping… Continue reading Women: We Get Things Done

Easy Rider

wistful dreams recalled of daring easy riders conjuring desire I actually was a too young to have any thoughts about Easy Rider when it first came out but as a teenage I became obsessed with guys on motorcycles. And Peter Fonda on a bike-woo hoo! Probably a good thing I didn't see the movie until… Continue reading Easy Rider

EPod Interview – Tina Stewart Brakebill

This was fun!! Thanks Freya. (Sorry it took so long to say thanks–this week’s been a bit nutso.) 🙂

Dragonscale Clippings

Here we are again in the docking port of the Interplanetary Space Guild Rescue Ship. Another Escape Pod has been found wandering in the depths of space and brought to safety. Who’s inside this one?

OK, so the door is a bit jammed. No worries, our engineers are on hand to release the opening mechanism. Hello! It’s Tina! Be careful! She looks like she’s going to faint – it’s somewhat claustrophobic in those pods … Are you feeling better now? What items did you take with you?

Floating through the cosmos waiting for rescue, I was thankful that I am naturally a bit of an introvert. The quiet of the pod really suited me. Unfortunately, I am also (more than a bit) claustrophobic, so I knew I would need some specific…

Doctor Who Fan Girl

Favorite Doctor? Converse high tops or bow ties? Bad Wolf or the Impossible Girl? Furrowed brows or wibbly wobbly time? Fantastic, Allons-y, or Geronimo? Sonic screwdriver or Sonic sunglasses?

Inch Worm Angst

This week! I yi yi! No wonder today's Just Jot January prompt reminded me of this commercial from my childhood for the Inch Worm Toy Granted I was probably out of the target age but I had the same reaction then as I do now. You're getting nowhere on that ridiculous thing. Get off that… Continue reading Inch Worm Angst

And oops-sorry I messed up the… Continue reading Lazy Day

Writing that Novel: Block, Break, or Bail?

November was NaNoWriMo. And many people in my sphere (be it virtual or irl) participated. Me? I went another route. I didn’t add a single word to my novel-in-progress. And as we enter December, I continue to not write. If this not-writing goes on much longer, it may necessitate a designation change from novel-in-progress to… Continue reading Writing that Novel: Block, Break, or Bail?
