Happy 2013 y’all! As one of my first moves in the new year, I’ve created an author page on facebook! Since my writing is branching out from blogging into barding (poetry-writing) and novel(la)-writing, I decided it might be good if I consolidated and built up my readership. Hope you all enjoy the new avenues!
Good morning everyone!
So, I’ve published my first e-book! It’s called Tales of An Early Morning, a collection of poems and short stories. The book is, of course, dedicated to the Wildlife Waystation, and all royalties from the book’s sales are going to support the Waystation!
To find out more, go to my new writer’s blog, The Quill, and check out the post on Tales!
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!
