As I’m writing this (Tuesday), I don’t have work because of the snow. It’s 2:30 (4:10 now that I’m going through and editing), but instead of leaving for work in forty-five minutes, I’ll just … be here. On the couch. Presumably being useless.

I actually have to read nonfiction?

I’m currently going through a lot of research for my novel-in-progress, Alone in Berlin, and it’s not easy.

Hello, ladies and gents! Today my post is in a different style — it’s a letter to my friends, from a girl who has been thinking about “The Perfection Lie” a lot lately. This letter is on the subject of how we, as Christians, now free from Sin (capitalized) still have to continue learning to […]
