If you are or have ever planned to write a memoir, this is what I’ve learned while writing my own.
I have enjoyed posting about my crazy antics over the last year, but with a new year comes changes, big changes. I had the privilege of being interviewed the other day and I thought, "I'd love to do something like that." So, The Papercut Diaries is getting a makeover. Sounds like fun, right? I certainly… Continue reading BIG NEWS!
As I think about writing this post, the only thing that comes to me is the taste. It sincerely gives me the willies just thinking about it. It's a sweltering July evening. I'm staying with my mother, since I recently moved home from across the country and we want nothing more than to soak in… Continue reading Evil Ants
Yep, I've fallen through a chair. Twice! Fun fact: Charles Darwin added wheels to his laboratory chair, in order to be able to move freely and have easy access to his tools and paper. Isn't that creative? It's Sunday (family day, as my dad calls it) and we're circled around a table playing board games,… Continue reading Chairwoman of the Floor
Dear Diary, Today I ripped another shirt. Today's topic is one that I hadn't really thought about until today when I tore a brand new shirt--and I'm talking brand spanking new! I got it last night, washed it and put it on when I got up. Four hours later the shirt got snagged on the corner of… Continue reading Rip Between The Lines
June 4, 2018 Dear Diary, I tried a new recipe today and somehow managed to fudge it up. Unfortunately, it wasn't a recipe for fudge or I'd be okay. I don't know how I keep doing this! I'm trying to get healthy, and if that weren't a battle in itself I have to add cooking.… Continue reading Recipe Disaster
I've never rushed to the bathroom so quickly in all my life. After going to the movies, we decided to go out for dinner, my friends and I. Well, I really wish we hadn't. If you know anything about me, aside from the fact that I'm extremely accident prone, it's that I'm a vegetarian, bordering… Continue reading ‘Waiter, there’s been a mix-up’
I don't know how I get into these situations. Regardless of the why's, here's the how... We have a pantry that I couldn't walk into, and it was driving me insane! So, a little early spring cleaning was added to my to-do list, and because I'm so particular it took me all day, practically. It's… Continue reading ‘Crime Scene’ Cleanup
My plan, back in January of last year, was to become a vegetarian. I thought I did the right amount of research. I'm a very picky eater so it was imperative that I do it right. I mean, vegetarians live off of beans and soy, and other equally unappealing ingredients, right? I can't stand either… Continue reading Accidentally Going Vegan
This one's for the ladies (mostly). Of all the products and tools we have for our hair the curling iron is the one that always seems to attack me. I don't know about you, but every other time I pick up that thing I somehow manage to burn myself. I don't burn myself in the… Continue reading Burns and Beautification
