I will be single on Valentine’s Day this year. Actually, I did some quick math, and I’ve been single for about 70% of all the Valentine’s Days in my life, so this is actually nothing new or unusual...

Mmm, milkshakes. Also thoughts about advice.
In the past, I have had people take advice I didn’t mean to give from this blog. I rarely mean to give advice. When I sit down to write, I’m not thinking, “Now then, let me tell people how I think ...

I gush about my new Kindle Paperwhite. :)
I got my first Kindle in the summer of 2009. It was a birthday present after seeing my first Kindle at Wiscon (my first convention) at the end of May. I loved the idea of being able to have so many...

The thought experiment of being aware of your own eventual demise.
What if you knew you were going to die in a year? Would you be doing anything differently? I read a New York Times op-ed today on this subject. It’s always a little strange for me to see this prese...

I list the top ten blog posts I wrote last year, based on traffic. I'm always interested to see what makes the "Best of" at the end of the year. :)

I talk about the foundations of identity.
I have always had a very strong sense of self. Admittedly, it has sometimes become somewhat buried under expectations or confusion or trauma, but even in the hard times, I have known on some essent...

Dog photos! You know you want to look. :)
This is going to be one of my best posts ever. Are you ready? Nala before her haircut: Nala after her haircut: You're welcome.

I analyze my latest con-going experience for entertainment and edification. :)
Before this last weekend, I hadn’t attended a convention in a year. And the last convention I attended was somewhat memorable. Before I left for ConFusion last week, I told myself I had to take it ...

"Self-esteem comes from yourself. No one else can give it to you."
I know a lot of people who don’t have much self-esteem. I used to be one of them, in fact. Having low self-esteem can be a self-perpetuating cycle. You feel bad about yourself, and so you look outs...

Otters! And planning! Whee!
I tend to be a very organized person. I like to plan. I enjoy the process of planning, and then I enjoy having everything be smooth and fun and efficient because I planned well. I’ve never had to p...

Here's to a wonderful 2016! :)
We are on the eve of 2016. I like that number. As previously stated, I’m not big on New Year’s resolutions, per say, but I do think the end of the year can be a good time to reflect on goals and pr...

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).
