It was a quiet Christmas morning for a certain girl and her family in the southern United States. They were unwrapping presents and enjoying each other’s company in general — nothing out of the ordinary, really.
But after no more parcels remained under the stout fir — and ribbons and bits of paper littered the floor — the father, with a mischievous look on his usually placid visage, rose from his chair and approached his daughter. “One last gift,” he said, and he pulled out of his pocket an object of otherworldly material about the width of a Saltine cracker. “I’m sure you know how it works.”

Happy Thanksgiving, m’peeps! How are you celebrating this wholesome holiday? I’m staying home with my family. Not super exciting, but I know we’ll make a great time out of it. 🙂
I’m writing this post in a flash because I felt like writing and I couldn’t think of anything else to talk about. So get ready for some scattered thoughts. 😛

Okay, this place accumulated way more dust than it should have. 😛 So after a month of silence I think it’s time that I (attempt to) resurrect this blog. I guess I could do a tag, but I’ve done a lot of them recently so I kind of want to hold back for another post or two.
I hate it when I can’t think of anything to write about besides tags. Don’t get me wrong — you guys have given me (and shown me) some really cool ideas, but I don’t have the confidence to do them myself yet.

All right, I know I’ve been doing a lot of tag posts lately. But I have only two more tags saved in my bookmarks and if I don’t do something about them soon I’ll be driven crazy. So I’m going to shove them out of the way with a two-tags-in-one post. Hope you enjoy!
EDIT: It is a few days after I finished this post and I got tagged again. But we’re not going to worry about that right now.

Greetings, one and all! Hope you’re having a fine weekend. I sure am!
(At least I better be. I’m writing this on Wednesday, so for all I know I could be having an absolutely horrible weekend. But anyway. . .)
I had the privilege to interview one of my closest internet friends. She’s a writer, public speaker, entrepreneur and fellow blogger. Her name is A.N. Parker of Tales of the Spiral! (Also known as Nola Applequill among Aethasians and Aurora Parker among pirates.)

Yes, I am fully aware that I just did a tag post. Well for one thing, my creative blogging juice is, as of now, dried up, and I haven’t learned how to replenish it yet. Also I have three tags waiting for me to acknowledge them, so I may as well. Don’t worry, I’ll write a different post hopefully soon! I do have one plan up my sleeve.
Anyway, let’s do the Simple Things Tag!

It has come to my attention that I have forgotten to provide eleven facts about myself in my Liebster Award post. So I’m going to go ahead and do that now, or else it’s going to bother me for the rest of my blogging career. 😛

Hark! Another tag cometh our way. Let us commence with the fun. . .eth. . .
I don’t know why I’m talking like this. I was hanging out with a humorous friend today. 😛
Anyway, LIEBSTER AWARD NUMBER FOUR!! 😀 😀

I saw this tag on Abigail Harder’s website and knew that I could not pass it up without doing it myself. I adore music, and I love talking about it, too.
So here I am, headphones over my ears, MP3 player on, and full of excitement.

I’m not very huge on writing.
I’ve written enough, and hung out with other writers enough, to understand the pain of writer’s block, the despair of killing a character you like, the frustration of editing, etc., but I’ve never gotten far enough to experience most of these things myself.
Today, I came closer to being a passionate writer than I have in a long time.
