I usually write something for New Year’s, whether it’s a resolution to make a blog (no virtual dust here, everything’s clean and tidy…ish) or a review of my year, I come up with something. I considered writing another review for 2019 but didn’t want to repeat myself, and then I thought about resolutions but those …

There is an old Victorian tradition of telling ghost stories on Christmas Eve. I don’t fully understand why this was a tradition or the significance of it to Christmas, only that it some of the lyrics in this classic makes more sense knowing this bit of history and even the infamous Christmas classic A Christmas Carol as …

I don’t expect much, out of life or from people. This isn’t a fantastic way to live one’s life, I definitely wouldn’t advise it, but after years of fickle friendships and disappointment it’s a safer way to live. Not better, just simpler.

It’s happening again. I don’t know when it started up again only that it was slow and creeping like a sickness that spreads. I looked at myself in the mirror one morning and wondered how anyone could ever stand to look at me, how it’s no wonder that no one ever wants to look again.

Hello all! It’s still November and that means it’s still NaNoWriMo and I thought, why not use today’s blog post to give an update on that? I mean, it’s going pretty well, suspiciously well if I do say so myself. So far for my NaNo project I’m at 18,559 which is about a thousand words …

***MAJOR SPOILERS FOR THE HANDMAID’S TALE AND THE TESTAMENTS*** As soon as I found out Margaret Atwood was writing a sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale I couldn’t wait to read it! I was skeptical of course, loving the ambiguous ending of The Handmaid’s Tale and believing that it ended completely in it’s own way, I was curious about …
