Preaching to the Choir

Wow, hey everybody. I'd like you to know that I do still love you, first off, but that I struggle to come up with entertaining and engaging content for this blog. IF you are for some incredible reason missing your fix of pithy anecdotes, there's a place for them here: my Patreon. Follow me there … Continue reading Preaching to the Choir


NaNoWriMo Day 5 Recap: That Feeling When…

This is my first year writing directly into scrivener; previous years have left me embracing the austere familiarity of Word for my writing needs. There, all my words were collected into a vaguely linear (ideally) jumble, and one simple counter at the bottom of the screen tracked whether I was on target or not. It wasn't … Continue reading NaNoWriMo Day 5 Recap: That Feeling When…

NaNoWriMo: Day 1 Recap

Between the Philadelphia NaNo group's midnight online writing kickoff and a lovely in person gathering at a local coffee shop Sunday afternoon, I closed out my first day of NaNo with a respectable 5,200 words. You might be hearing that, running some quick mental math, and realizing that I'm already past the Day 3 goal … Continue reading NaNoWriMo: Day 1 Recap


NaNoWriMo: Character Creation Mode

The Seven Year Itch

One week remains until the beginning of National Novel Writing Month, and all of my gadgets are trying to explode. Apps are mysteriously disappearing from my phone. My laptop is irritable about basically everything. In what seems to be a grand conspiracy that others in panicked stages of NaNo prep will corroborate, only sweet, welcoming Netflix is working … Continue reading The Seven Year Itch



The humans who read this blog have been far kinder about my intermittent updates than wordpress has been. Zero hourly views on average, because you're an ass about updating.


Feigning Diligence

It's October and here I am, excuses in hand and apologies for months of neglect. I've been busy in other things--in addition to my photography (NSFW), I've also launched an Etsy shop called Saint Drusilla. It's mostly knitted goods right now, but I've been busily adding to my stock, drafting patterns, making things, shopping for … Continue reading Feigning Diligence
