“But I don’t want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked.
“Oh, you can’t help that,” said the Cat: “we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.”
“How do you know I’m mad?” said Alice.
“You must be,” said the Cat, “or you wouldn’t have come here.”
(Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Chapter 6)
I write stuff. My job is writing stuff and my hobby is writing stuff. I live in the South but I have roots in New England. I have just finished a draft of an urban fantasy/steampunk novel. I very much enjoyed writing it and someday I wish for it to be Published and Well-Recieved.
My favorite writers are: Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Neil Gaiman, David Foster Wallace, Flannery O’Connor, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Pablo Neruda, Langston Hughes, and assorted and sundry others. I have developed a love for the Dresden Files and art books about collage.
Things I Love: Husband, ferrets, lists, London, playing board games, wine, dark chocolate, going to the movies, blue, silver, my living room, buying books, reading books, writing stuff, making stuff, getting letters in the snailmail, rain, wind, green ink pens, frogs, scope for the imagination, cooking stuff, writing new ideas in my little silver notebook, going places, sushi, very hot tea, pretty paper, owls, baskets, finding new music, secret hideouts, dresses, walking around outside.
Things I Don’t Love: Bad grammar, football, people who throw cigarette butts out the windows of their cars, onions, peppers, the phrase “soup to nuts,” beards on people under the age of 80, mustaches on anybody, guys in tank tops (except…you know, *some* guys can pull it off – usually gay dudes), obsession with celebrity, people who are mean to animals or kids, people with very little personality, not using your turn signal.
Thank you very much for stopping by. Visit often and invite your friends. I am also obsessed with my blog stats and I apparently have two faithful readers.
