Writing In suburbia #62: Workin' Hard…

This week I chat about a TON of stuff. From whether or not I will become an indie publisher to my dropping out of ConCarolinas. Plus, someone is demolishing the trailer behind my house and one of my dogs goes NUTS over that!

You don’t want to miss this episode.

Enjoy!

Biblical Reboot

Of course, this isn’t the earliest reboot. For that you’d need to look at some of the distinctive in different editions of the Gilgamesh epic. Still, this is a lovely way of illustrating some of the “continuity errors” in the larger biblical corpus. I also recommend  James McGrath‘s post relating the latest debacle from Lucas to epic storytelling in the ancient world.

Goodbye 2012!!

Oh 2012!! What a year you were 🙂

After happily leaving 2011 behind (it was not the greatest year of my life…) 2012 brought joy, pain, heartache, laughter and love. We had to say goodbye to the last of our little pet rats Polleke (the end of an era!!), there was crafting, followed by lots of pain from crafting, campfires, soaking up sunshine, redecorating parts of our home and holidays with friends.

But most of all, 2012 was the year where I learned a lot about myself and about life. I’m not done yet – who ever is? – but I’m sooooo ready for 2013!!

New year.
New start.
New adventures.

Bring it on!!! 🙂
