Winner of the 2011 NaNoWriMo after taking part in '07, '08, and '09. Came up a bit short in 2012 after a huge sprint (my problem was beginning one novel, then starting another, plus life got in the way).
I am a former radio broadcast journalist, former desktop publishing instructor, a production manager of a small West Central Saskatchewan weekly newspaper, and transitioning to work for a weekly newspaper in a small North East Saskatchewan city. I currently moved more north easterly, and am a production assistant in the city of Humboldt.
I write, and have an opinion (but then, we all do, I believe). I’m creative in that I enjoy writing, and I enjoy taking photographs. I’m not a professional photographer, but I feel there’s enjoyment in something as wonderful as a photo. I own no cats, but I’d like to (I live in an apartment, and there are rules against pets like cats and dogs in apartments, and I’m not a fish person). Plants die around me, unless I have a mother-in-laws tongue, which requires low maintenance and are quite good at cleaning the air.
The following is information about the three story properties I have been working on, two of which have been published works.

Mark Twain (via justbreatheagain)
I’ll be honest I kind of scrolled past this at first and was like “ok that’s nice, but it’s just the feminist blogosphere and I’ll just get sad because no one is ever really going to listen.” BUT NO, THAT IS THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE GODDAMN UNITED STATES. Maybe things aren’t 100% hopeless after all.
OH GOD, JOE THE BIDEN *__*
I think it can also be added, to quote Joe Biden again, “this is a big fuckin’ deal”.
To write —
The inkwell, crystalline like consciousness, with its drop, at bottom, of shadows relative to letting something be: then, take the lamp away.
As you noted, one doesn’t write, luminously, on a dark field; the alphabet of stars alone does that, sketched or interrupted; man writes black upon white.
This fold of dark lace, which holds the infinite, woven by thousands, each according to his own thread or extension, not knowing the secret, assembles distant spacings in which riches yet to be inventoried sleep: vampire, knot, foliage; and our job is to present them.
