Neko Atsume Tubbs Shirt

Neko Atsume is something I will never understand. Earning money to feed virtual cats and buying them toys so they come to your yard and leave more money. It is a vicious cycle of Nekos and I love every flipping second of it. I want to giggle with glee when one is curled up in…

Flash Fiction: Nothingness

Zipping through the street she ran trying to catch her bus. She reached the stop just as the bus pulled away. Running behind it waving frantically praying the driver would see her everything around her seemed to slow down.  She looked at her hands that were slowly disintegrating. Time stopped as she moved through the…

New Year Cosplay

Resolutions suck. After spending some time writing down some for 2016 my list looked more like a todo list. My sewing list takes up two pages. Let’s just say I’ve got more projects that I want to complete that I’m good for the next several life times. Cosplay is the big thing I’m looking forward…

September Writing Goals

The fall winds are hallowing again knocking down trees and devastating my fence in the process. The seasons seemed to have changed in a blink of an eye going from 90 degree days and unusually blue skies to down pours and 50 mph winds. Summer is over next week officially. Forget the equinox.

You know the basic, seeing the ills of society and the struggle against it. I think gritty, harsh, futures that serve as a warning to society: if you become too complacent this too…

Must Read Scholastic Book Fair Books

Most kids in school looked forward to the dances or field trips not me, I was all about the Scholastic book fair. I would spend so much time carefully going through each shelf identifying new books that I had to read. Kindergarten was when book fairs were first introduced to me. The teacher lined us…

Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep by Philp K. Dick

Let me admit my own ignorance. I never wanted to watch Blade Runner because I thought it had something to do with vampires. I don’t do vampires. Nope it had to do with androids. Boy was my face red when my husband realized how mixed up I was. We watched the movie. It was good….

What Exactly Is Dystopia?

They tore down paradise and put up the Arena. Let’s face it dystopia is anything but Shangri-la. Since the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins the term dystopia has popped up everywhere. Seriously just browse the young adult section of the bookstore and it will be hard to miss books like Divergent, Matched, The Uglies, Maze Runner,…
