A Product of Bullying

A recent hot-stove topic has been the slew of bullying-related suicides. I've read and watched this topic with a sordid sort of interest. Having been a "victim" of bullying for much of my childhood, it's been easy for me to condone the vilification of those who are doing the bullying. However, doing so simply turns the tables while ignoring the true problem at hand and that is eliminating bullying at its source...if that's even possible.

November is National Novel Writing Month!

So, you want to write a novel, but you don't want it to take 5 years of year life? Have I got the solution for you! In just 30 days, you too can have a novel (albeit a 50,000 word novel, but who's counting). Crazy? Perhaps. But, it can be a lot of fun too.

Forgive me...

...for it's been a really long time since my last post. It's not that I don't love's just that I really haven't had anywhere to put my laptop down since the move! It's a lame excuse, but honestly, all of my energy has been going into unpacking, organizing, and such. It's been a really long couple of weeks. But, I promise I've got some good material to share. Just need to make some time tonight.
