Word Crush Wednesday: Aeschylus

So today I got to thinking about predictability. I thought of another novel idea (taking the tally up to four, and ensuring that I'll probably still be writing just these four in 2017) and a genre, and genre subversion. Don't ask. Or do, but you may have to wait until I've created flowcharts, note cards and perhaps… Continue reading Word Crush Wednesday: Aeschylus

Word Crush Wednesday: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

So today I learned I still have a job next week. Right now it's kind of going week-to-week, and it's very nerve-wracking. My contract began in July as a six-weeker, but it's been almost a full twelve weeks and I'm still there. It's good. I'm aimlessly saving money for a mystery thing, I don't know… Continue reading Word Crush Wednesday: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Word Crush Wednesday: Simone de Beauvoir

It's a sleepy Wednesday. It's the kind of day that wants to be a warm light springy day, but does not manage. Instead, it's been the kind of day that sulked for a while before eventually yielding some warmth. We're also beginning to wind down the year. It's nearly October, I realized today. Shockingly, that means I have… Continue reading Word Crush Wednesday: Simone de Beauvoir

Word Crush Wednesday: Lauren Bacall

I've done it again. That silly, silly thing where I map out a post, and then don't write it down? That. As a result, I stared at the blinky little cursor wondering what to write. Then I looked on a quotes site. I do that a lot, browse for inspiration. Trouble is I'm easily inspired. … Continue reading Word Crush Wednesday: Lauren Bacall

Word Crush Wednesday: Audrey Hepburn

I had something all planned out for tonight's post. I really did, but I forgot to write it down. Not my finest move, as I now have a hazy recollection of what I was thinking about and no idea of the quote I was going to select. This doesn't happen a lot - thankfully, it's… Continue reading Word Crush Wednesday: Audrey Hepburn

Word Crush Wednesday: Madame Bovary

I have a lot of time for Madame Bovary, both character and novel. It's by no means the oldest book in my collection (ahem, Shakespeare; I see you there, Chaucer) or the longest (Tolstoy, Thackeray), but it's one of the first I developed affection for on my own. I could write a thousand words on why I… Continue reading Word Crush Wednesday: Madame Bovary

Word Crush Wednesday: Sandra Cisneros

I've been thinking a lot about language of late. Quick backstory: ten years ago I began learning German. I was good at it, in my beginner's level class at high school. I liked it, and so I stuck with it. As the years progressed, fewer people took it. By my last year, I was one… Continue reading Word Crush Wednesday: Sandra Cisneros
