Rerun: But she’s got a great personality

Because opening the Add New Post window here at the blog did nothing but offer up an evil, taunting flashing cursor, I thought hey, wouldn’t it be cool to see what I blogged about on February 20th, 2005?, so off I went into the archive of eight years past.

Apparently, newbie-author-me was struggling with my first ever cover request. I bet, at the time, I thought they’d get easier, which is pretty funny. I still hate them. And the … Read More »

Rerun: Gear shifting and doom

I’m quite swamped at the moment, so I’m re-running an old favorite post I stumbled upon while searching for something in my blog archives.

Retro Shan: My ornaments, let me show you some

(We decorated the tree last night and I wanted to share some of my favorite ornaments, but I’m a little busy this weekend. This is a post from the Christmas 2007 season, but it’s all still true, so I’ll start with this and then share a few more ornaments over the coming weeks.)

So, in the spirit of ho-ho-ho-ing, I’m going to share a few favorite ornaments from my tree with y’all. I adore my tree, and every single ornament … Read More »
