Because I’m a cat!

Today has been boring because Sonya’s been busy. Her to-do list is constantly driving her to an early grave. She spends all her free time writing and editing her novels. She spends the rest of her free time beta reading for her writers groups. She takes a weekly dance class to guarantee that she’ll leaveContinue reading “Because I’m a cat!”

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!”

Win an Amazon gift card!

Hi everyone! I hope you all are having a great day today. I have a fun contest down below. I’ve been hard at work on my memoir, and I’ve been getting super-useful feedback from Sonya’s writer’s group. I accepted a long time ago that no one can write a great novel (or novel-length memoir) withoutContinue reading “Win an Amazon gift card!”

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.”

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!”

Let’s rock this!

Sanity has tenuously been restored in an insane mind, and I feel oddly good about communicating with Nate. I just feel bad that I was so… all over the place in my message. The truth is that I feel awful about what I’ve put him through, often to the point that I want to actuallyContinue reading “Let’s rock this!”

I hate NYC Midnight!

Don’t panic, but I’m angry. Large Flatulent Marge, my irate alter ego, has taken temporary (I hope) possession of me. I can tell she’s here because my head is buzzing with hot air and I want to throttle some poor, unsuspecting citizen. (No one’s nearby, so… that’s good.) I didn’t make it to the finalsContinue reading “I hate NYC Midnight!”
