The Dawson Leery Movie List: Season 2

Honestly, I can’t believe it took me over three months to finish Season 2. If you’ve been here for a while, you know when I binge I show, I tend to do so quickly. But y’all, as much as my love for the Capeside Crew is an enduring love that has weathered greater storms than […]

In Process

I’m often hesitant to blog about things before I’ve finished them. I’m notorious for setting up and starting challenges for myself (hello, Pandemic Disney Movie Marathon) and then getting tired/disinterested and walking away.

Flash Fiction: A Good Date

I wrote this piece many months ago inspired by a friend’s Facebook post highlighting her…let’s just say amusing…experiences with online dating and dating apps. It’s been through quite a few iterations by this point, but I really enjoy this particular version of the story, and I hope you will too. Thanks for reading! A Good […]

APRPAD 2020 – Selections

April is National Poetry Month, and there’s often a “Poem-a-Day” challenge that goes along with it. 2019 is the first time I truly participated in it, and much like last year, this year I did most of the days. Unlike last year, I didn’t post them regularly here on my site, but now that we’re […]
