Writer’s Be Like: The Dangers of Research

Let me start by saying...I'm really disappointed in you guys. You let me fall off the face of the earth and no one even checked in to see if I was okay! How DARE you? But I forgive quickly, so let's move on. Yes, I've been gone from this platform for *gasp* two years. I… Continue reading Writer’s Be Like: The Dangers of Research

Adult Friendships Are Tough

Have you ever encountered a celebrity, in real life, without their makeup, expensive couture digs, and entourage? Living in New York City this has happened to me a few times and it always progresses through the same stages: That person looks familiar. Did I go to school with them? No, not school.
