A Secret Affair With Frills

Well, well, well. Guess who’s got a lot of backlog to clear. I have been a lot more active on Instagram lately–obviously it was a quicker way to update my friends with what’s going on. I spend much of my writing energy on my job, so this blog has effectively fallen to the wayside. Last […]

October 2017: Tropics in My Mind

    My eyes sting from staring at my screen for too long, watching words form on and move around blank documents.

May 2017 Mood
