My family thinks it's funny that we both have our little gameboy kits with us most of the time, link cable and all. We stay in, we make love, we play, we play all sorts of games. With him, I feel more grown-up and yet younger. We watch movies all the time, because that's his thing and when they get boring I read, because that's mine. He's meticulous and I'm messy, my hair is wavy all the way down my back and so is his, though his is straighter; I wear mine loose and he doesn't. His lips are bee-stung and beautiful and with him I don't wear make-up. We wake up and I snuggle under his arm, but we usually sleep more loosely. We make love with the lights on and his eyes see more beauty than I could ever see in myself. He, on the other hand, is perfection and I like to pull on his hair when I come and he growls at me and I love him. I love him.


Update (11/23/12): He cut his hair. We've moved (twice). The wedding is next Spring.

Wouldn't it be nice to pack up everything, or nothing, and move halfway across the world? I would choose japan, but am down for anything. Why do people grow such thick roots?

In which I reach out to LJ writers

Hi Guys:

I'm currently looking to sign new middle-grade and teen projects. I'd love to hear from you and/or your friends. Please do send me your pitch/query letters and pass this on to any of the writing communities you may belong to. I'll do my best to read and answer queries quickly.

I prefer humor, adventure, and mystery in my middle-grade (not a huge fan of sci-fi). In teen, I prefer romance, paranormal (but FRESH paranormal), humor, and dystopian fiction (no issue books or chick-lit, please). I'm looking for quality writing, big hooks, and relatable protagonists in both.

I look forward to reading some great query letters. Please note that I am NOT currently looking for proposals in the following genres: adult, picture-books, non-fiction, poetry, or novels in verse.

Thanks everyone!

Dear Friend:

In a fit of temper, I changed all my passwords and acquired a new email. I have now forgotten said passwords and even the new email itself. Let it be known that I have not forgotten you--and you know who you are, of course--so please forgive me and get in touch somehow.

Very sincerely,

Who knew creativity had an expiration date?

A lot of my colleagues are writers and I deal with authors everyday. It's made me quite critical.

I can't write dialogue at all. Truly. And, as you might have noticed, I can't even maintain this space.

It might have to do with working for a corporation. Even the most creative jobs can feel, well, corporate.

I'd like to take a writing course, but I think I'm too cynical to try. I have a very short attention span.

What is it about singers
that makes us fall in love?

I had a friend who would sing to me
and play his acoustic guitar
until I fell asleep.

I can listen to one song on repeat

I miss you
