I Am Ready for The Solstice

It has barely started to look like Spring around here but my mind is already prepared for summer. While skimming through some of my photos I came across last year’s Solstice Parade photos and I was transported to my happy place amongst naked cyclists, zombies pulling floats through the streets, hammocks strung in the trees…

In Over My Head And I’m Ignoring It

A goal without a plan is just a dream. That my friend is the weak of heart. I say leave the plans to mice and men and jump into it blindfolded, feet first. Unless it is the zombie apocalypse. ALWAYS have a plan for the zombie apocalypse. In about three weeks from now I planned…

Where did this Batman obsession start? One day my husband decides to read a Batman comic the next day we are trying to figure out Robin timelines, he is trying to convince me that I must read about the Court of Owls, and Batman stickers are covering his laptop. Then the shirts show up. The…

Flash Fiction: The Hoard

One moment my chopper was  navigating its way to the township when it all went wrong. There was an explosion, we were hit. We thought we were the only humans left until we were shot down, but there was no time to process this. Base camp was already transmitting info over the radio as we…

Time stopped as she moved through the…

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. Summer is…

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,…
