A Good Story and a Bowl of Soup

Standard

I have caught the plague.

And by plague, I mean the set of germs currently running through the Caltech population, compliments of the summer students.

But this means that I have an excellent excuse to make soup during the 80 degree summer weather! Yesterday, I discovered the vegan best replacement for chicken soup at Trader Joe’s: Garlic Rice-Noodle Soup.

I doctored my bowl at lunch today with a scoop of TJ’s mirepoix mix (a fancy word meaning chopped carrot, onion, and celery). Just what my sore throat and stuffy nose needed 🙂 Future add-in plans include spinach, edamame, and tofu for some extra green and protein.

And of course, curling up with a sick day soup bowl goes very nicely with a side of a good story. But I’m not just reading these – I’m writing them! I was recently hired by a few different employers to do some freelance writing for them! My first job is a set of short stories about animals from the animals’ point of view – definitely up my alley. My first set are written from coyotes’ points of view and explore the raw power and ingenuity that humans have to respect – or otherwise deal with the consequences of. Check out the logs!

Hope you all are avoiding summertime colds!

  1. You wrote these? That’s awesome! That makes you a real writer! (as in, you have received payment for the task of writing. Therefore, by definition a real writer, as opposed to people like me who write things but never get paid, or really never have anyone read said things) Keep us posted on everything else you get published? mmkay?
