  • An overview of events that prove how absolutely exciting my life is. Um.

    What's up in Amy's life lately? (Obviously not making interesting posts. But bear with me. Life is not very interesting right now.) So let's see... last post was last Thursday? Ah yes, the voice post! I love voice posts. Hmm. But since then? I guess I'll just outline my past week for...

  • This isn't my "something interesting."

    This is my "just letting you know that I'm still around, sort of, somewhere." Where have I been, anyway? What has Amy been up do? • Becoming acquainted with Nobuta wo Produce , thanks to Saskia. • Watching video after video of Yamapi and developing a lovely new obsession. • Attending the...

  • on ten books that have changed/influenced me

    So I wanted to do a post on ten books that have changed my life, but the thing is... that's a really hard post to do. Like really really difficult. Darn near impossible, actually. I feel like if I went past the fifth book I could go on and on forever. But I went past the fifth book anyways. And here...

  • some future posts and lots of quotes

    First order of business: sent out the cds to Jocelyn and Erika. Hopefully you get them soon!! Second order of business: saw the movie "I'm Reed Fish" and oh boy I loved it! Mich was totally right. Third order of business. I don't feel like talking in specifics (ha - not like I ever...

  • on the bread (or a book I always thought was about bread at least. jewish rye to be specific.)

    I here have news. Okay, so I was at my grandparents' house, all happy to finally be back home for a while. And I was walking past the shelves in the living room when I saw, sitting face out like it was just WAITING FOR ME TO FIND IT, a copy of THE CATCHER IN THE RYE. A book I've been wanting...

    Just directing anyone who's interested to Ally Carter's (the author of I'D TELL YOU I LOVE YOU BUT THEN I'D HAVE TO KILL YOU) amazing post on self-publishing. Seriously, it's the best post I've seen yet on this subject... and I've seen a lot .

  • on blurbs, pitches, and what needs to be done

    Hi. Today I'm looking at those blurbs on the backs (or inside flaps) of books. Trying to write a pitch thing for my novel, but first I have to figure out how to go about this business of writing what. Like, what are they supposed to sound like? What are they supposed to tell about the story? This...

  • a short one, mostly about confessions

    I have a confession. I can't help it: I love The Hills . I realize this is sad and pathetic, but it's also true. There's something about watching people whose lives have even more drama than my own that's kind of reassuring. It's like, "Hey! At least I'm not them!" Anyways...

  • over analysis and me

    As is often the case, there are too many thoughts in my head tonight. Mich said, Be happy. Don't think; be happy. But telling me to not think is like telling me not to breathe: futile. Because, as she says and has said for years (and rightly so), I overthink everything. I think too much. I don't...

  • the DON'T READ THIS book list and my first dorky pride reference
