Happy Spring Solstice everyone! Happy one year Anniversary Grow Write Guild! I’m spending the solstice starting seeds and roller skating. Even though there’s still snow on the ground I won’t let that hold me back from celebrating the lengthening days and nearly approaching warmer weather. How are you celebrating? It’s been a busy year and I’m […]

It’s been a year of prompts and posts with the Grow Write Guild. To celebrate I’ve included my very first entry, which was never posted to the blog. I’ve written more about the first anniversary, what’s to come, and the release of my first collection – Riot Grrrden: Stories from the Grow Write Guild – in […]

Polar vortex makes it tough, but sunny days bring hope. . It’s been a cold, cold winter. While I haven’t been thinking about the specifics of gardening like I was dreaming and planning for this time last year, the past few weeks I can’t stop thinking about being outside. I don’t even need summer just yet, […]

Merry Winter Solstice everyone! This mystical post comes to you just in time to celebrate your connection to the earth, the stars, and the seasons over this crisp holiday. Its been cold and icy but I’m still thinking about greenery. This piece was prompted by the gwg #16 – write dangerously, which was to write […]

There have been some big changes in the catalog since I tabled at two zine fests, one in late summer and the other less than a month ago. The first was the Portland Zine Symposium, where sales were way down, and the second was the Milwaukee Zine Fest, where sales were way up! I sold out of a few titles […]

Two weeks ago my roller derby league hosted International WFTDA Championships. It was a really incredible few days and I met some great people. It was a celebration but it was bittersweet. This was a culmination of years of work that serves as an end cap to my involvement currently. I am a founding member of The Beerleaders, […]

Here’s Part Two of the Fall GWG piece (click here to read Part One). This continues my response to prompt #13 and some of #11. When the harvest prompt came out I was really excited to write in depth about my successes. Unfortunately it came right before I left for Michigan and by the time I got […]

GWG Prompt #12: Describe fall in your garden in 5 to 10 words. Didn’t take off as planned but flourished in unexpected ways.   It’s been a while since I felt like writing and I have a lot to wrap up. It’s good to look back on what’s happened all season now that it’s coming […]

I took the month of August away from the computer for the most part, and it really felt good. I enjoy sharing things on the blog here but since I was gone on my three-state summer adventure I was able to take the time to explore and come back with new stories. I have so […]

Here we are, at the tenth Grow Write Guild prompt. I hope to compile the first ten responses into a little zine to share offline. Look forward to that and more blog writing in the near future. . There are many plants that I’ve tried to nurture but just couldn’t get them to get up […]
