DONE!

Today, Sunday the 29th, marks the last day of my full-time student status. I can’t believe it’s finally over. I feel like the last two and a half years has flown by and the fact that graduation is just a few days away is equally exciting and terrifying. I find myself logging into the portal,…

Publication 25: Linguistic Erosion

In all of the rush and bustle of these last few weeks of school, I had absolutely forgotten that my flash fiction, “The Blue Schwinn,” was due for its second publication today in Linguistic Erosion! Well, that’s a pleasant surprise to wake up to! Thank goodness I had set a reminder in my calendar –…

Publications 23 & 24!

I’m very excited to announce that the 10th volume of The Aviator, Full Sail’s literary magazine, has come out! You can download a copy here! (Please note: it’s an application, so you will need to disable your pop-up blocker) I’m very fortunate to have both a short story (The Blue Schwinn, pg 28) and an…

Bruno Mars in Concert!

Had to share this awesome photo of Bruno Mars and his band from last night. Doesn’t this picture just look like it’s straight out of the 70s? I love it. My fanhood (is that a word?) has increased tenfold for Bruno after last night’s concert in Orlando. He was energetic, talented, and put on one…

The E-Book vs. The Printed Book

I’ve been on a major reading kick lately. For anyone that knows me, they can vouch that I’m an avid-reader by nature, normally polishing off one novel per week – on top of my school and work commitments. For my birthday, my husband surprised me by purchasing the four major Kerouac books I’ve been dying…

Opportunities

With graduation less than six weeks away, I really feel like the momentum is building. I’ve gone through two interviews for internships. I’ve sent out samples of my writing to multiple companies, colleges (yes, thinking about grad school), and potential employers. This is really happening, folks. I found out last night that the owner of…

The Beauty of Silence

One of the things I marveled about during my hot air balloon ride last month was the weight and the power silence can have. There were sixteen people in my carriage, all chattering away, and it wasn’t until we were thousands of feet off the ground that people noticed it. The stillness. True, utter silence.…

Why?

My cap and gown arrived in the mail yesterday. WOW. This is actually happening, isn’t it? My educational journey is drawing to a close. I’m in the home stretch, the final portfolio development classes, and in just 66 days, it’ll be time to walk across the stage, shake some hands, and pose for a picture…

Oh, those summer nights.

We’ve had some gorgeous sunsets here in Florida lately. This one is just ACHING for a story or a poem. Hope this serves as a writing prompt to some, a nice visual repose for others. Have an awesome Sunday! ~ Victoria Elizabeth

Books I Couldn’t Live Without

Anyone that knows me would definitely recognize that I’m a book-lover. I’ve been a bibliophile since I was a child, constantly spending my allowance at the Scholastic Book Fairs and then begging my parents for more money because I wasn’t satisfied with the stack of books I’d already purchased. One thing a lot of people…
