Nope, I don’t want to go back in

      2 Comments on Nope, I don’t want to go back in

Yesterday I realized I first came out of the closet 20 years ago. Actually, I came out of two of them. I was 14 and starting high school. I’d just made a friend based on the giant pentacle necklace she’d been wearing, and our joking about coming out of various closets led me to going WELL, LET ME LEAP OUT… Read more »

Life in a Pandemic

      2 Comments on Life in a Pandemic

It’s all horrendously normal, in some respects. We’re far from the epicentres of Europe or even the U.S. up here in Powell River. While the virus has hit British Columbia, it doesn’t seem to have reached us on the Sunshine Coast yet. That will change soon. Already we have a case on the Island. It won’t take much for it… Read more »

PerPoWriMo. The various wrimos are getting a little ridiculous, which means I must join in. How did it become March already? Something something, time moves in mysterious ways, something something. Mom and I are doing PerPoWriMo this month. WTF is PerPoWriMo, you ask? Personal Poetry Writing Month. Not personal poetry, just our own personal poetry writing month. April is NaPoWriMo… Read more »

Radical Blogging

I have been blogging since 2004. I had just moved into the dorms with my best friend Makana, and she convinced me to join her on Blogdrive. My early blog posts were raw and unfiltered; deep dives into my psyche or incoherent rambling. The titles of the posts were song titles, usually whatever I was listening to at the time…. Read more »

OK, take 2 on getting my shit together…I started this post on January 1st. It is January 10th. I have not finished this post. Let’s see if we can change that, shall we? Do you like that word? Reso-goal-tions? I made it up today January 1st. I never seem to make pure resolutions, and trend towards goal-setting instead — but… Read more »

Sunrise over a mountain backgrounds the words "Farewell 2019" written in script.

…winds at my back, and chocolate in my stomach. Probably a lot more poetic in my head than on paper. Even digital paper. It’s the end of 2019. The end of a year, the end of a decade. Tomorrow we — I — start the march into 2020, the best year yet — or so I tell myself. 2019 was… Read more »

WiP Playlists: Anala

      Comments Off on WiP Playlists: Anala

This summer I started work on Anala, third book in The Bellica Trilogy. As with all my other projects, I created a playlist to help inspire me while writing it. As I don’t really know how to create a listenable playlist for you all online yet, I figured I’d just post the list of songs. No true spoilers, but seeing… Read more »
