I talk about the costs of speaking up on the internet.
What I’ve learned in the last three hours of wrestling with this blog post and ultimately producing nothing I could use is that making a point effectively and concisely while maintaining and projec...

I'm reprinting my post on personal sharing online today. I wrote it for the SFWA blog last month, and I've been finding having these guidelines to be helpful for my own blogging.

"Now is your chance to make your life as amazing as possible."
I’m sitting in a darkened theater, and Act 2 is about to begin. This is one of my favorite plays, I haven’t seen it in years, and it is even better than I remembered. By the end of the play, I will...

My response to #KeepYAKind , on the role of criticism in our literary community.
Don’t rock the boat, Amy. That is the message with which I was raised. Lie low, don’t make trouble, stay quiet, pretend what’s happening isn’t really happening. At all costs, please people. Make th...

On the many different ways of having a practice.
This weekend I went to a party that was basically a room full of Buddhists...and me. Does that sound like the set-up for a joke? Anyway, I really enjoyed hanging out with these people because they ...

Mmm, cookies! 
My grandmother was raised during the Great Depression. She knew how to be frugal, and she’d save aluminum foil in order to re-use it later. That’s how I understood frugality as a small child: savin...

Yes, I finished my rough draft! All is celebration and happiness here at Casa Amy.
This afternoon (it is Wednesday when I type this), I finished the rough draft of my current novel. Obviously after typing THE END, any further productivity for me for the day went straight out the ...

I introduce the Dating Beat with two thoughts about dating.
I really like stories. No surprise there. And as I collect my own stories about dating and hear other people’s stories, I’ve developed certain opinions. I don’t want to call them guidelines because...

A list post, a list post, hooray!
I hung out with one of my close friends last night. I hadn’t seen him in a while because I’d been sick, and then more sick, and then he’d been out of town. We sat on my couch for a few hours, catch...

There has been a certain giddiness around here lately....
In the last month and a half, I have fallen headlong in love…. with a new hobby. Blues fusion dancing, to be specific. I will give a practical definition of what that means to this beginner dancer ...

This is my face of Mystery.
O Woman, you are so mysterious to me. Surely you are a mythical creature, or if not mythical, then at least exceedingly rare (and definitely not approximately half the population). O Woman, your sk...

Story time! I tell the story of a recent tipping point.
I’ve been sick this week, which isn’t exactly surprising since I just got back from the Rainforest Retreat, which means airplanes and airports and hanging out late with writers who are sick and sle...

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).
