Eating Healthy in the Dorms

As an undergraduate, I ended up losing weight instead of gaining the dreaded “freshman 15.” I didn’t even try; it just happened. Here are some of the reasons why.

The Dangers of a Gas Stove

Our gas stove has always made me nervous, and after reading a few facts about gas products I’m even more scared of the thing. Hopefully these safety tips will help anyone who needs them as well as yours truly!

I’m also shooting to take part in the Creative Copy Challenge, In a Sentence, AND 100 Words again starting this week! I miss the first two terribly (the third is new to me, introduced by Aless) but have just been strapped for time all summer. Seeing as I’ll probably always be crazy busy, I thought why not try and take part when I can for a bit of joy?

Just for Fun

I’ve been doing quite a few projects just for fun lately, and I’ve discovered that I have this strong desire to write drama, suspense, and some pretty dark stuff.  I really appreciate the opportunities that these awesome groups and challenges have provided for me and the things I’m learning about myself and my writing through them!

For example, my entries in the In a Sentence competition at Facebook…

And, of course, the Creative Copy Challenges!

The hosts of these activities are muses, writer group leaders, and coaches all rolled into one–and, in a word, awesome.

Here is another poem for NaPoWriMo as well, written as a contest entry:

Also, yet another incredibly fun challenge: In a Sentence on Facebook is a blast! Every day, you get one word to use in a sentence; at the end of the day, winners are selected. Each month, everyone gets points tallied up and the people with the most points win prizes. But the most fun is writing the most imaginative sentence you can and enjoying the others posted! 🙂
