Two truths and a lie

Lately, I’ve seen a lot of people talking on Twitter about the game “Two Truths and a Lie.” When I worked as a lighting designer for theater, directors sometimes made us play this game as an icebreaker at the start of a new show, but I haven’t played it since. This obviously must be remedied immediately.

I’m going to tell you three stories. Two of them are 100% true, and one of them is completely fabricated. Leave your guesses in comments. (If any of my good friends are reading this, you are not allowed to play. Sorry.)

Random Ramblings

I’ve been relatively scatterbrained this week, and I don’t have anything big and important and deep to report.

ATTENTION, BOYS OF THE REAL WORLD! Below, please find descriptions of some of my fictional boyfriends. I suggest you acquire the books in question and spend some time reading, then come back when you’re ready to emmulate the following people.┬áThank you for your cooperation. [Read more…]

Playlist of my life

I don’t make playlists for my books. I always see people writing posts about the songs that inspired various scenes and characters, and I always wish I could do that. But the truth is, I write better in silence, or to the ambient noise of whatever coffee shop I’m in. I’m just way too distractable to write my own words while someone else’s words are flying around in my head. [Read more…]
