Just Musician Things–An Update

So I just finished two hours of violin recordings. It’s a really, really weird experience. In a recital, you’ve got an audience. For a recording, it’s you, the crew, a pianist, and a gloriously empty theatre. That’s not to say there isn’t an adrenaline rush. There is. It’s almost impossible, even to another musician, toContinue reading “Just Musician Things–An Update”

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”

In light of your concern…

Hi. I’m okay, thanks for checking. I know there were probably some of you who wondered if my corner of the universe had imploded since I didn’t make a September 22 Hobbit Day post. I am sorry about that. I also don’t have a great excuse. I think I blinked at the beginning of SeptemberContinue reading “In light of your concern…”

Writing Update: August 31, 2021

There’s something wonderful and terrifying about starting a new story. Extra terrifying if you’re working in a genre where the nerds will kill you if you desecrate their sacred rites but will not give you the time of day if you don’t make something new. Also corpses. Thankfully not mine. This time. In case you’reContinue reading “Writing Update: August 31, 2021”

Writing Update (August 14, 2021)

So in case you were wondering if I was hauled off by an errant dragon, got hopelessly lost somewhere between Les Miserables and the present day, or just quit blogging, Hi. I’m not dead. I’d say I needed a vacation, but I’ve been spending almost every spare minute editing a half-written novel, so that wouldContinue reading “Writing Update (August 14, 2021)”

Blogiversary!

Drumroll, please, for BookmarkedOne’s second blogiversary! I’m still here! Woo! So first order of business is to say thank you to my 181 followers for putting up with my book snobbery and reading my late-night rants about dragons and tea (or sometimes dragons drinking tea). Thank you. Your comments usually wind up making my day.Continue reading “Blogiversary!”

Renaissance Fair (Part II!)

It was sort of like getting your birthday twice in a year. I hadn’t expected to make it to any fair this year, and here I was, out of the blue, going to two, one after the other. The week in between? I’ll admit it, there wasn’t the same giddy adrenaline shock of the firstContinue reading “Renaissance Fair (Part II!)”

Nefarious Adventures Return (Renaissance Fair!)

So here it is! Belated but as promised. Far be it from me to end my Bi-Annual Epic Book Haul on such an enigmatic note and never explain myself. Hold on to your dragons’ tails and buckle your Viking helmets, we’re officially in Renaissance faire season! (cue BookmarkedOne distant screams of delight) I have mentionedContinue reading “Nefarious Adventures Return (Renaissance Fair!)”

Writing Update: June 25, 2021

So I accidentally started reading my first NaNoWriMo novel yesterday.
A couple of clarifications here:
I’m not one of those people who as done NaNo forever and a day,
When I say “accidentally,” I don’t mean I fell in a hole and remarkably discovered my old manuscript in the mud, typed up and tied together with a ribbon.
