Some really beautiful (and some really botched) examples of literary tattoos. My favorite is also the saddest story, entitled “(i carry it in my heart)”: http://www.contrariwise.org/2009/03/05/i-carry-it-in-my-heart/ RT: Neil Gaiman @neilhimself

This might be the lamest blog post on the planet, but I am le tired following my adventure through Minneapolis, where I slept maybe 6 hours / night and went all day long to panels, discussions, presentations, and managed a few outings. It was fabyuhluhs <3 to meet Katie in real life!! And I agree, no awkwardness at all. Totally like old pals. Will post more when my brain resets, hopefully by...

A really, really good day...
It began with coffee / hot chocolate with my family, and then a brisk walk through the 30 degree weather. BRR! But we made it back to the conference in time for me to attend a brief board meeting with some of the other honor society officers before my presentation. Today I presented my scifi (syfy?) story. People laughed at the right places, and seemed genuinely interested. I also think I fielded...

Traveling is so not my thing
I do believe I’ve blogged about this before, but I am really not a traveler. You’d think I would have gotten used to it by now, but it just weighs me down. I’m glad to have another state to mark off my list though… States I have Visited ( 27 / 50) Alaska, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Maine, Maryland,...

Danielle: omg lawl! you're watching milk??
Justin: same wine too...
Such is life as a writer...
I received my first novel rejection form letter today. I’ve received many for my short stories but this was my first attempt to market my novel. Truly a stab in the dark - although I really like, and respect, this agency. Perhaps someday one of my novels will intrigue them… but not today. In happier news, I am celebrating the first day of spring and the ancient Akitu Festival in...

Some newness for my blog
I added an RSS feed of fabyuhluhs.com so sorry if you get a fabyuhluhs overload. Also, I’ve added comments to my blog. You have to actually go to the front page (not the dashboard). Is anyone able to comment on my posts? <3

Just finished HBP and DH within a week of one another. All around it’s been great to revisit Rowling’s world. I definitely made a lot more sense of the plot this time… but that could be because the first time I picked up DH was at 1 a.m. on the release night and I read straight through til 5 p.m. the following day. Stupid, but enormously fun. I’ve just begun reading Neil...

By Emily Dickinson
No Rack can torture me— My Soul—at Liberty— Behind this mortal Bone There knits a bolder One— You cannot prick with saw— Nor pierce with Scimitar— Two Bodies—therefore be— Bind One—The Other fly— The Eagle of his Nest No easier divest— And gain the Sky Than mayest Thou— Except Thyself may be Thine Enemy— Captivity is Consciousness— So’s Liberty.

Katie & Allie: I hope you both feel better soon and I am sorry if I’ve intruded into your healing process. I’ve been a bit overeager lately; finishing the novel has given me a “no doors barred” sort of vibe. Good for me, bad for those around me, haha. Anyhow, if there’s anything I can do for either of you, let me know. My sistor: I am soooo excited to have dinner...
Video games... doh
The destroyer of all motivation: Video Games. I obviously enjoy being on the computer for solid lengths of time, but usually I am “working”, but that homework or writing/editing my novel. Since I received my new Asus computer last Friday, I’ve been updating it and installing things, keeping out of trouble mostly. I made the mistake yesterday of installing Sims 2 (which...
