Finding peace in the Good Place

I've watched a lot of people die. This is a morbid place to start this particular blog entry, but I recently realized that not everyone is as involved in the deaths of their loved ones as I have been blessed to be. I have felt, watching my great-grandmothers and my grandparents and and the S.O.'s... Continue Reading →

The full 2020 experience

Yesterday, I waited in line for two hours to get a Covid test I probably didn't need, seeing as we already know the S.O. has Covid. It was my first time getting a Covid test and, at risk of putting you off of getting one, I thought I would describe the experience. Waiting in line... Continue Reading →

On cross-dressing as narrative device

I asked for blogpost ideas recently and I got this awesome discussion question from Miramira Endevall. It reads: There are ever so many stories about women dressing up as men to go do things, but very few the other way around, and then for comedy a la Charlie's Aunt.

Writing and recovery

Back in August I wrote somewhere upwards of 12,000 words in nine days, or about 1,300 words a day, which doesn't seem like much but is as much as I've been managing in a week for the last several months.

I include that last description so that you know my biases. I've posted about some of the trials and tribulations of being a... Continue Reading →

An adventure, a request

Hello humans! I'm writing this post in the first week after my S.O. broke his foot and rendered himself temporarily disabled. Which reminds me: disability rights are human rights, because you will be disabled in some fashion at some point in your life, at least if you live long enough. Accessibility is important for this...

Believing and the glass ceiling

Alright, this is a weird post for me. I've been feeling a little demoralized of late with writing stuff, for a variety of reasons, some logical, some the result of me comparing myself to others who are just in a very different place in their careers -- which, by the way, makes no sense. Cannot... Continue Reading →
