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.

Sad to see things end.

Wonder if it means you can't trust anyone
or if you just don't know the right people.

I miss you...or maybe just the idea of you.

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 [29 Mar 2010|04:50pm]
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!

Was that sufficiently cryptic?

Also, NYC can be a bit lonely.

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

So much to do today:
kill memory, kill pain,
turn heart into a stone,
and yet prepare to live again.

What to say? Years go by quicker now. Minutes zoom into days. My teens were leisurely and tasty. I liked the chase more than the catch. Time is slippery now and not as cheap. I don't want to go back and give up the days, but I want to flashback more often. Maybe less. I want to feel invincible again. Cheap wine and short skirts--the sun and tanned boys. Less claustrophobia and smog. My old black car with the peeling roof and my hand-print on the back window. Don't ask. Or do.

1) Go here: http://editorialanonymous.blogspot.com/

Then go to the entries tagged "submissions" and "how to tell you're never going to get published." Best.site.ever. Wish I'd thought of it first.

2) I got promoted (yay!)

When I told my mom I was now an assistant editor and not an editorial assistant there was a very long pause, and then she said "but, what's the difference?" Thanks, Mom. Way to stroke my ego.

I have never been a good friend. I'm forgetful, selfish, and impatient.
I forget you when we're not together, and I will never call you. Ever.
Is it hypocritical to say I'm loyal? I will love you for years after our last conversation.
And I will never talk behind your back. Never.
I will think about seeing you again. Maybe even dream about it.
But I am stuck in my dreams and my life is now and not yesterday.
I'm sorry.

I have just received my first "business cards." Ok, so they're really index cards (sans lines) with my name, number, and email (and company name and logo) on the top left--but it's a start!

On a separate but related note, I am expected to bring in authors and/or ideas, but I don't know what the etiquette is for meeting authors through writing communities since I don't want to post my work address (for them to submit their writings to) and get a million of unsolicited (bad)manuscripts that I won't be able to get through. Any ideas?

When I was 14 I had a friend named Jim.
Jim had a foot tall mohawk to add to his already 6 feet tall frame
We used to pack into my mother's minivan
and she would drive us to straight edge meetings
which I can't remember if he was serious about or not
but I remember the girls being very earthy and granola
and me sleeping on their couches
and thinking...no alcohol or drugs, really?
I had a crush on Jim
but I can't recall ever pursuing it
even when we were both high
and on the phone at 4am
I think I went to about 3 meetings
and all I remember about these meetings were the parties and the smoking
and the laughing
I don't think I ever went "inside"
The funny thing is I can't remember if I went to these meetings
before or after I went to rehab
but I have a definite suspicion it was before.

We're officially moving in together next week (one week!!). After 3 years of sleeping over at each other's houses. He's moving here for me and then in one month we have to find a bigger place. I feel as though there should be some sort of ritual for this.

I told him that he better make a big deal when he proposes.

Nobody knows that I'm really 17 on the inside.

Let's get so drunk that we dare each other to run outside naked...in the snow.
