Escapism is a perfectly rational response to … Continue reading Defending Escapism
Sorry, y'all. All I have this weekend are jokes.
Here we go again. Time for everyone's favorite type of post: The type that responds to a different post on a separate blog. (Yay!)

Remember when we did these every week? Ah. Those were the days. Speaking of awesome things, my book is done...er...again! Had some editing to do these last few weeks, and now I'm really feeling my book is ready to go out there. Granted, that's what I said last time...Ah well.
