A Few Words

Scrounging up confidence, battling insecurity, and facing internal and external opposition is a day-to-day struggle for some writers. Myself included. And it's not only with writing - it can bleed into other aspects of life, as well. It has been difficult lately to sit down and write and work on queries. Nagging "what ifs?" and...

DNF

As an avid reader, I try my hardest to adhere to the policy that if I start a book, I must finish it. I am far more strict when it comes to films - especially if I am seeing them in theaters - but still have similar standards for books. I don't like leaving unfinished... Continue Reading →

Jury Duty

Parking garages should not be so full this early. The clock says "7:11." And the paper said be here by "8." I knew I should have stopped at Starbucks. Though the world's strongest latte could not prepare me for this. No phone, no computer, no internet, no outside contact. Just a room, 200 strangers, and... Continue Reading →

How I Learned to Love to Read

I've already told the horrible story of Lucille, but before that dastardly purple horse, I was brought into the wonderful world of reading with a series about a character known as Little Critter, created by Mercer Mayer. If you are unfamiliar with Little Critter, this is what he looks like: A bit frightening, but he... Continue Reading →

My Reading Routine

This one was suggested to me, and I thought it would be a cool thing to share! So, I've mentioned in a previous post that during college I sort of fell off the reading wagon due to the extensive amount of academic-based reading that was required for my major. Reading became a chore for me,... Continue Reading →

Part of me still rides the train into the city through the early morning haze, and sits at a table by the thatch-roof cottage, sipping tea and admiring the serenity of Richmond Park. Some of me still frolics through the fields of Kew Gardens, the air... Continue Reading →

Were

I don’t think I will ever forget the day I ran the third leg of the 4x1 relay at a track meet in Harrisburg. I remember noticing that the anchor was a little too far ahead for me to hand her the baton. I was so sure we were going to miss the handoff –... Continue Reading →

“Eff” The Police

When I told my mother that my friends and I were going to go sit in a graveyard and read classic literature, she said “Over my dead body.” I laughed. She didn’t. But after assuring her that it was a harmless activity (and that Dante was best read by candlelight next to a tombstone), she... Continue Reading →

Allergies

Friday evening, I worked until 7PM and decided to do some grocery shopping on my way home from work, so I wouldn't have to contend with weekend crowds. I generally loathe grocery shopping, so I ensure I get in and out as soon as possible. The whole "scan it" and bag your own stuff revolution... Continue Reading →
