Here’s where the good stuff lives…

“It was a cool fall day, but overall very lovely and suggestive of fresh starts.” -E.P.

STOP! If you missed the first installment from the novel I’m working on, you can read it here before you continue! “From the driveway, the old place didn’t look too shabby. As is the case with most things in life, however, the closer you look, the more unsavory details are revealed. The walkway was madeContinue reading ““It was a cool fall day, but overall very lovely and suggestive of fresh starts.” -E.P.”

“Sometimes I can feel my bones straining under the weight of all the lives I’m not living.” —Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

This quote is arguably one of the most beautiful and poignant lines in all of the English language, which is one of the reasons I selected it for my next blog post! Each word is powerful and meaningful to the point that you can really feel what the author is feeling, which is something thatContinue reading ““Sometimes I can feel my bones straining under the weight of all the lives I’m not living.” —Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close”

“You should be kind to everybody, even cats and dogs.” -Jaclyn, 8 years old

Be Kind and Don’t Litter by Jaclyn McClintick “Be kind to your friends and other people too. Grammys and Grampys, moms and dads need kindness. You should be kind to everybody, even cats and dogs. Be kind to your home town. One way to be kind is to not litter. Littering can kill animals. LitteringContinue reading ““You should be kind to everybody, even cats and dogs.” -Jaclyn, 8 years old”

“It started with a rattling door, the colloquial bump in the night, a burn, an unexplained bruise, a shadow lingering in the corner of my vision that never passed directly into my line of sight.” -Yours Truly

“…It was something insidious, and there were signs that it was there all along, but because it started so slowly, it went largely unnoticed until I was deeply ensnared and enchanted with the evil that had crept into my life. Until I was forced to confront it. As these things sometimes do, it all startedContinue reading ““It started with a rattling door, the colloquial bump in the night, a burn, an unexplained bruise, a shadow lingering in the corner of my vision that never passed directly into my line of sight.” -Yours Truly”

“Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, the rest of us just get up and go to work.” -Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

When looking for advice “on writing” a horror novel (that’s right, I just dropped a hint about the genre of the novel I’m currently working on and inserted a super witty pun at the same time), who better to emulate than the Master of Horror himself?! Better yet, why not take advice directly from hisContinue reading ““Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, the rest of us just get up and go to work.” -Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft”

“Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out, and you get loose in the joints and very shabby.” -Margery Williams, The Velveteen Rabbit

Written by Margery Williams and first published in 1922, The Velveteen Rabbit is a beloved British children’s book that has withstood the test of time. The words are still as meaningful, beautiful and haunting as they were when it was first published just a decade after the Titanic sank. Margery’s voice is strong enough toContinue reading ““Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out, and you get loose in the joints and very shabby.” -Margery Williams, The Velveteen Rabbit”
