Party at Sonya’s place!

The trip has gone well so far, which I’m afraid to type without jinxing myself, but there it is. Today is a day of rest and recovery, because yesterday’s writers group was an all-day affair, going on for well over twelve hours. I had a blast! So today we’re staying in, ‘cause Sonya has aContinue reading “Party at Sonya’s place!”

My story!

I got the go-ahead to share my 100-word microfiction story!! The assignment was to write a story that includes chasing something (however you want to interpret the concept of chasing something) and the word “grow”. It can be in any genre(s). I had one brave guesser (shout-out to Jewish Young Professional!) on my guess-my-genre post,Continue reading “My story!”

Bringing my mental game!

So, I’m just trying to stay very calm today so I’ll be relaxed tonight and (ideally) tomorrow. I get the contest assignment at midnight (it’s almost 2:00 PM here now) and then I have 24 hours to write a freakishly great 100-word story. I’m excited and apprehensive and sad that I ruined the part ofContinue reading “Bringing my mental game!”

Ambiguously good!

I have good news of an ambiguous nature. I think I’m golden to compete in this weekend’s microfiction final! Go me! I waited 24 hours to hear back from Charlie and then I figured he can’t handle interacting with me due to my constant hysterics. (I totally don’t blame him.) So I took a gambleContinue reading “Ambiguously good!”

My one shot at redemption.

I had a complete meltdown a while back, just over a month ago I think, when someone who I really don’t like won the NYC Midnight short story competition. I was just very affronted by it, because she’s not a good person. On the forum, she’s a snarky bitch, an instigator, and a very patronizingContinue reading “My one shot at redemption.”

Simone Biles, an amazing gymnast!

SPOILERS: Olympic gymnasts ladies team competition (in case it hasn’t aired wherever you live) [Note: I blog for fun, and I’m certainly not a professional journalist by any stretch; and I don’t have word-for-word quotes on hand here, but the last thing I want to do is misrepresent any Olympians, so I tried to quoteContinue reading “Simone Biles, an amazing gymnast!”

The check is in the mail.

This is freakin’ hilarious. As you all know, I’ve been helping Mother at her condo and also taking her out for errands and such. She’s trying to organize her living space, and often she’ll give me small stuff that she doesn’t want. Most recently it was a conch shell. I thought it was pretty, butContinue reading “The check is in the mail.”

Fun with flash fiction for NYC Midnight!

This must be my third blog post today. One for the record books! The purpose of this blog post is to share my flash fiction story that I wrote for the competition at NYC Midnight over the weekend! Special thanks to Ashley Leia and Emilia who beta read for me, and if anyone else wantsContinue reading “Fun with flash fiction for NYC Midnight!”

Because I’m a gonna rock that tutu!

Well, I’ve got a scheduling conflict. As you all know, I’ve been struggling mightily to lose fifty or so pounds that I’ve been carrying for the past ten years. I was just now messing around online and checking out if I can take an in-person class, now that the threat of the coronavirus seems toContinue reading “Because I’m a gonna rock that tutu!”

Fun times all around!

In an hour I’ll be taking my dad to the airport. I’m a bit anxious about it. Apparently he wants to keep his cigars stored in his carry-on bag. Hopefully he won’t try to light one on the flight. I can see it now. “Flight 229 has crashed after a careless passenger apparently tried toContinue reading “Fun times all around!”
