Happily Never After: True (Fictional) Love

Let me start out by saying I do believe in love. I do believe that a couple can make it work. I believe that when two people are right for each other, they can make it work. I truly love my husband and understand that a perfect relationship doesn't feel perfect 24/7. You will have your moments; one or both of you are so tired and just want some alone time but you know if you came home and they weren't there you'd be worse off than just knowing they're in the other room or on the other side of the couch. You have a disagreement; it wouldn't be much of a relationship without having moments where you grow together through discord. It's healthy, it's normal.

Romance Is Dead (For Good Reason)

Every active reader and writer of Young Adult varieties can recall the cold age of the sparkling vampire romance years from not so long ago. Remember?

Reality: Stranger Than Fiction Part II

I never used to be so thankful for Fridays. When I worked at Walgreens, I always did a Tuesday to Saturday work week, so it wasn't until I quit that the weekends felt good again and I looked forward to them. My mood is lighter and I feel as if I finally caught back up …

We Are The Weirdos Who Write Paranormal Stories

Yesterday marked the 22nd birthday of The Craft, the movie that made us want to sport black everything, heeled boots, and own the biggest candle collection. Who didn't want to get together with their closest friends and play Light As A Feather, Stiff As A Board? (I'm looking into getting the recently released shirt that …

Hives, Rejections, And Other Irritations

Picture it, a week ago: I'm seated at my office desk, so ready for the day to be over. It was Friday, I daydreamed of lazily lounging at home all weekend and wanted nothing more than to be away from people. I was exhausted, cranky, and spent into the negative range of my energy levels. …

When The Writing Muse Is AWOL

Stephen King states that a true writer is one who writes every and each day. He says he considers said writer talented should anyone have ever paid them for their work. So if you receive a check in your mailbox (if that's even how it's done anymore) congrats. Meanwhile, I sit here, writing in a …
