Sage advice

(from one of my characters)


“You’re young.
God knows you’ve been through a lot in your short years.
Your 20s are the start of your adult life, and it’s normal to feel completely lost.
I spent my 20s in a hateful relationship, hating myself and everyone else who was happy.
I didn’t feel truly secure until my 30s.
Go explore, experiment, get lost, try to find yourself.
Your 20s are the time to do it.”



Random writing samples #1

She said / let’s go / I want to live / I want to know
Don’t buy a house – you probably won’t be able to afford the mortgage anyway.
…forced her inner extrovert out. She could even feel herself trying to flirt.
Hey girl, do you really like The Ramones?
…so illusive. It runs and it skips and it hops away from me.
Love is not conducive to rational decisions

Simple pleasures list #1

1. Organic raspberry liquorice

2. A new shade of lipstick

3. Erykah Badu’s “The Healer” on repeat

4. A few pages of “Eats, Shoots and Leaves” and a punctuation geek fest

5. Snatching a spare moment at the library to look at interior design books and plan my dream home

6. Standing out on the porch until I freeze and then coming upstairs to Marquez

Melancholia Competition

{In 25 words or less, what would you do if you knew the world was going to end tomorrow?}

I would watch all Von Trier’s films back-to-back because he’s a genius.
And with the world ending afterwards, I wouldn’t have to worry about nightmares.
