Little Lady’s Guide to Back-Cover Blurbs

The art of back cover blurbs can be tricky. Whether you’re writing a back-cover blurb for your blog page, your publisher, your query, or whatever else, making a back-cover blurb that is enticing yet doesn’t give away too much is a fine line. Through many hours browsing the library and picking up random tomes that would strike my fancy, or wandering the aisles of Barnes & Noble, I have concocted […]

The Abstract Idea of Cats

  My relationship with cats has not always been a merry one. In fact, a recent conversation with a friend in the back of class summed up my entire relationships with the species. We were discussing the approaching Valentine’s day and she was commenting that: “I’m always going to be alone. It’ll just be me and my eighty-seven cats.” “Wow, you really like cats that much?” I asked. “Well, I […]

The Thing About Nerds

I had a strange experience happen to me at work the other day. I was standing at the cash register at the fast food place where I work. And one of my co-workers (let’s call her Jenny) walked up to me. “Grace,” she said.  “Do you smoke?” I stared at her for a moment. Why would she ask me that? Did I smell like smoke? This wasn’t likely, no one […]

7 things high school theatre taught me

Recently I had the pleasure of performing in my high school’s rendition of Once Upon a Mattress, and being a senior, this was perhaps my last theatre performance in high school. As I got back home after the show’s last run, I sat in my room looking through old Playbills and pictures and reflecting on how amazing my theatre experience had been the last four years; I realized then how […]

Book Review: A Monster Calls

I’ve been meaning to blog about this book as soon as I finished reading it, but I recently had the pleasure of reading A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness. I highly suggest this book. A few weeks ago I was perusing the school library for something short to read. Being in AP English I have precious little time to read for fun as most of my time is monopolized by […]

On Hipsters and Harry Potter

It was in second hour AP English Literature and Comp that the subject of conformity came up. We had just begun reading Shakespeare’s Macbeth as a class and my English teacher, Mr. W, was explaining the symbolic significance behind The Weird Sisters in Act I. I giggled to myself and when he raised his eyebrow at me, I explained that J.K. Rowling once again put in another secret allusion in […]

Publishing According to Non-Writers

I truly had a marvelously comical thing happen to me the other day. It was last hour and I was sitting in class talking to a friend of mine. I haven’t known this girl very long. We officially met last year, but only really started talking this year and getting to know each other. We were talking in class and she mentioned something I’d posted on Facebook (what exactly it […]
