Lately, I’m finding that I’m less inclined to read BSC Snark than I used to be. I’ve never been the biggest fan of snark, and it’s never been the focus of my interest in discussing the BSC. But recently, I’ve found that the snark has taken a quite virtriolic turn, and often ends up reading [...]

My Camp NaNoWriMo experiment was a bust. I am a freelancer, and July happened to be a very busy month, and I’m still very busy, which is why last week’s blog entry went up yesterday and I’m only doing Link Roundup today. But I’m going to put fanfiction on the backburner for now, for when [...]

I started doing this a while ago and I think I only did Kristy and Mary Anne. I did it, though, by pretending to take the test as them, and I thought it’d be better to just read the types and pick one from the description. This BuzzFeed article has a pretty good overview, and [...]
