Quarantine Skills

It's not quarantine unless you decide to learn something new, right? Some of you may know that I have a long obsession with wheeled sports. I used to bike 4-8 hours a day, before things like work and college got in the way, and I developed a bad shoulder that made cycling posture untenable. I… Continue reading Quarantine Skills

Return

I'm back! We have internet again and things are slightly less crazy. I love living in Kent/Seattle. Everyone has been so wonderful here, and I really love the location. Both physically and mentally, I feel healthier than I have in a really long time. I'm still getting back into the swing of blogging. After more… Continue reading Return

#SeattleFound

This isn't QUITE a return to blogging, though I wish it was. At the moment, we still are lacking internet in our apartment, which makes it hard to do things like compose blog posts, and I only have time to get to the library on weekends. We did, however, make it to Seattle. The trip… Continue reading #SeattleFound

Happy Holidays

No matter what you celebrate, I hope you have (or had) a wonderful holiday, with plenty of food and loved ones, whether you celebrate with a theme, or just by having a lie-in. (Yes, the Christmas tree is black. And yes, that is the eye of Sauron on top, with a chain of gold rings.… Continue reading Happy Holidays

October 2017 wrap up

Send out at least 1 query every week I sent out over a dozen queries this month, which makes up for the ones I didn't send in July. Release The Spider’s Web on Amazon Reduce the yarn stash by 50% I'm starting to think this goal is pointless. I'm still knitting. I haven't been buying… Continue reading October 2017 wrap up

The Worst Kind of Busy

I'm starting to come to terms with the fact that I need to slow down. At least a little. At least temporarily. The last two and a half months have been rough. Between deadlines and social/family obligations, I'm getting burnt out. I knew July and part of August would be bad. I was not expecting… Continue reading The Worst Kind of Busy

A Hard Thing

I know this isn't one of my regular blog update days. But I didn't think this could wait. As you all know, we recently became a single-income household--not by choice. We've been doing what we can to rectify the situation, but it hasn't been enough. Right now, we're about $400 short of being able to… Continue reading A Hard Thing

The Best Kind of Busy

The last two weeks or so have been insanely busy. I'm not complaining, though. This is the kind of busy I like. Village season is in full swing. I made a new skirt for House Divided, our big Civil War reenactment (pictures...eventually. I have some really bad ones right now, but I'd like to get… Continue reading The Best Kind of Busy

Thanks, Ohio.

I'm really glad the weather has turned. Really. Being able to see the sun and go out without a sweater is wonderful. My flip flops were feeling neglected, and I've got my eye on a new pair of ballet flats. I can wear skirts to the office without freezing from the waist down, even with… Continue reading Thanks, Ohio.

Moving

Hey guys, no blog for a couple of days. I moved over the weekend and I have symposium next weekend, so I'm a little overbooked at the moment. I'll try to schedule a couple chapters of Dru Faust for you, but I'm not sure if I'll have the chance. I'll be back in May with… Continue reading Moving
