A silly poem: The Keyboard Shutdown

In an effort to garner some laughter in the office, I always try to send out a short poem or song to my department whenever I announce that I’m the M.O.D. for the evening. I normally aim for a parody of the current hit songs (Call Me, Maybe? was a hit), classic Disney melodies, or…

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 –…

For my birthday, my husband surprised me by purchasing the four major Kerouac books I’ve been dying…

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.
