So, I've decided to save links to all my stories on pinboard.  Everything is there now.

It's here, if you want to check it out.

ETA 2016: I'll only be using this to keep track of my comment_fic fills from now on.

I give blanket permission for podficcing and other things -- but let me know what's being done with my fics, and if you want to do anything with any of my original stuff, you have to ask me first. DO NOT repost any of my works anywhere, though links are fine.
As a starving grad student, I’m ever in need of funds.

So, if anyone needs an editor or proofreader, I have over five years of experience as a professional editor, a BA in English, and an MA in Education. If any of y’all know of someone who could use an editor, I’ve created a flyer with basic info. Drop me a line and I’ll email it to you.

so, i’m reading Black Book of Poems and i haven’t been this frustrated with poetry since the first time i read Milton. i keep having to pause and roll my eyes, and i do not understand all the rave reviews. these poems are so forced! so trite! i feel like i wrote this kind of stuff as a preteen, and then i feel guilty for feeling like that, but seriously.

all the rhyming. ALL THE RHYMING. every single poem so far has rhymed, for fuck’s sake. SO MUCH FORCED RHYMING.

i’m gonna finish it, if only so i can add it to my book log. (which, yes, i am keeping again. 17 so far!)

and, to be fair, there are some good lines in here. they’re just difficult to find because of all the R H Y M I N G.

so, i’m gonna submit a manuscript to a poetry competition. I have 2: one for general poetry and one for fairy tales. I like them both equally, so I need help deciding which to submit.

anyone wanna read ‘em and discuss with me?
I'll be defending my general exam this afternoon. Please wish me luck.
Anakin took a drastic turn for the worst. I let him go home.

Oct. 11th, 2018

Rec me some books that don’t involve cats, fire, or incurable diseases, please and thank you.


My cat Anakin has been having some health issues that bewildered our regular vet and the specialist they sent us to; the specialist sent us to another specialist, who finally diagnosed the problem. For the past few weeks, I've given him multiple medication multiple times a day and none of it made a difference.

He has feline infectious peritonitis, the dry kind. He'll live a few months at most.

He's not even two years old.
General Exam draft DONE.

So, I’m going to finish my lit review today. Got 13 books to add and then I need to arrange it cohesively.

One of the books, I’ve written two papers about. So I went back to those papers. I’m going to post part of one on my tumblr. It’s about the fire.

so i’ll be making a presentation in my writing class about how to use fanfiction for creative writing and student engagement

anyone got a quote for me about how fanfiction helped them learn to write / encouraged them / anything else along these lines?


Have any of my fics/poems ever made you cry? If so which? Why?


So I’m reading Dewey’s Art as Experience. Dewey says, “A work of art no matter how old and classic is actually, not just potentially, a work of art only when it lives in some individualized experience.”

Query: is art art if no one is there to appreciate it?

Query: does art lose some of its artness when the context of its original creation is gone?

I’m pretty sure he’s arguing no to the first and yes to the second, and I’m really pretty sure I’m not sure that I agree.
