The way fashions in the 1900s are imagined in 1893 are pretty hilarious. They apparently thought we'd go way medieval. Also didn't imagine pants for women AT ALL.
Illustrations from a delightful piece called the Future Dictates of Fashion by W. Cade Gall and published in 1893 which tries to predict the next 100 years of fashion.

I talk about the value of limits both in creative projects and in life, and contemplate the difference between valuable and unnecessary limits.
In both composing music and writing, we talk about the value of limits. Shouldn’t the imagination be limitless, you might ask? Well, yes and no. Without some sort of structure within which to organ...

I like that way of describing it. :)

How much can I get done, and how fast can I do it? Yikes.
I thought about writing a substantive post, but I still have some boxes to pack up, so I'm going to keep this short. This morning I'm picking up the keys to the new place and starting the process o...

There have been articles in the last year about studies showing that reading fiction increases empathy. If I weren't in the throes of moving, I'd try to find a link for you. :)

I talk about social guidelines, social capital, and the work that goes into maintaining a social life.
One of my favorite blogs, Captain Awkward, recently had an article filled with tips on how to make friends, which I found fascinating since it’s a great analysis of the logistics of how to be socia...

In which I talk about the distinction of having social interactions in public (aka on the internet) vs. in private.
I often say that I assume everything I put on the Internet is public. Some sites are explicitly public, like this blog and my Twitter account. Others aren’t quite as obviously public, like when I p...

On happiness and social ties. 
I had a conversation with a new acquaintance who told me that when he is in a romantic relationship, he pretty much falls off the face of the earth when it comes to his friends. And not just during...

On moving.
It is April 1st, and I have officially moved. All my stuff was in one place, and now it is in a different place. It is mostly in boxes, which is admittedly sad for me. But it is here! Meanwhile, I ...

The title says it all this time. :)
I thought I’d write today about self care, since I’m in the middle of a move, and moving is on that list of highly stressful life stuff, which means self care is something that I’ve been making ext...

Introduction

I'm a science fiction, fantasy, and YA writer, and I also regularly write essays for my blog, The Practical Free Spirit. 

In addition to posting content relevant to writerdom and geek culture (I adore Star Wars and Buffy the Vampire Slayer), I am interested in a wide range of subjects: music, theater, technology, sociology, philosophy, history, economics, anthropology, psychology, etc. In other words, I'm really fascinated by why humanity is the way it is both on an individual and a societal level, the forces that change and shape it, and the different perspectives and experiences that it encompasses. 

I also like little dogs, Disneyland, ice cream, and Christmas.

Bragging rights
I've traveled to six of the seven continents (no, I haven't visited Antarctica...yet).
