The Sword Umbrella

So most of the time I think my life is pretty boring. I get up in the morning, have tea and a bagel, classes, violin rehearsals, work, I read books, cry over Silmarillion fanart. Okay, mostly boring. Except for the violin parts. Ordinary life is ordinary life. So I don’t post about it, because whoContinue reading “The Sword Umbrella”

Dragonfest Recap

So I was in the news again. Not because I robbed a bank or anything, although I am wearing a mask that hides most of my face. A photographer happened to catch me and my violin in the company of a pirate. Sword-shopping, if you want to know. It’s Dragonfest 2021 recap time, everyone. SoContinue reading “Dragonfest Recap”

Life off the Page Update

I met the Goblin King today. And Queen Elizabeth I. And milady Fleur, whom we usually call the Squirrel. And the Knights of Mayhem, and at least four Plague doctors, and a giant crow (or was it a raven?), and a dragon named Lily and someone who looked like Robin Hood… …there was also aContinue reading “Life off the Page Update”

Nerd Cons and Adventures

So I spent my Saturday with a group of mercenaries happily attacking each other with steel weapons, waving at the Queen, participating in the arrest of anti-heroes, and playing as much fiddle music as I could.

Even though it’s been a couple weeks since it happened. As word of explanation, I am a strolling player at the festivals–wander around, wearContinue reading “Catching Up Part 2: Dragonfest 2019”

Writing Update: October 14, 2019

So this is going to have to be a short post, only to say it’s going to be the lone post until…well, probably after next Wednesday-ish, if I know myself. Why, you wonder, have I been absent from my self-imposed bloggish duties? Well, I was supposed to have a fall break. I think I blinkedContinue reading “Writing Update: October 14, 2019”

Life off the Page

So this month, I get to do one of my favorite things in the world. No, I’m not spending three days locked in a closet with my laptop and a pile of snacks to get some writing done. Funny. I’m actually going outside, in the crisp fall air, forgetting about deadlines, stress, and responsibilities, andContinue reading “Life off the Page”
