The Prolific Princess

Last winter, what with the nervous breakdown and the running away from home and all (has it really been almost a year?

(i missed the Stokers COMPLETELY. *doh*) A writer really has to stay on top of these things….

The Answer Is, Was, and Always Will Be: “Yes.”

It was all the rage in high school: South Carolina Governor’s School for the Arts. As a junior or senior you could audition for their summer program in one discipline: visual art, ballet, drama, singing, writing…there may have been others, but two of those defined who I was. There was only one problem. I had to choose between them….

Dear Padawan

Ariell likes being called my Fairy Goddaughter far more than she likes being called my Padawan…but “protege” is so passe, isn’t it? I mean, once there’s a car named after it, the word doesn’t quite hold the same oomph. You might remember Ariell from her fabulous contribution to Kill Brian Keene Day. Since then, I’ve taken her under my…
