Since I enjoy this blog and its title SO very much, I think it’s only appropriate I write my farewell as well.
Star has left, but Ace is still in the cards for another term here at Gotham.
Connie only left last Friday–and I was with her last night at Gotham’s Open House for the new spring term–but I still really miss her. I didn’t realize it until last night. We were sitting and chatting and…
My time with Gotham is soon coming to an end, but it served its purpose. I got to hang out with the awesome “Gotham Overlords” (again, it’s qualified by awesome, so they’re not the bad kind of overlords. Just literally over me, being the intern), take an awesome writing class, make new writerly friends, and surround myself with writing, writers, and writing ideas.
In the time since January, I’ve…
Last Saturday afternoon I worked a Write-In at Two Moon Cafe in Brooklyn with the completely hilarious and ridiculous instructor Pete Jensen. We both had also worked the Write-In that previous Friday night, where I joked with him, saying he better come up with some good prompts because I was planning to participate.
Saturday came and we had a good crowd of about 12 or so people, half being…

describing eye colors isn’t actually v helpful as a description??? talk about the makeup smeared on the left side, the lines under their eyes, the sloppily cut hair obscuring their eyes from view, how bloodshot or sunken they seem in the face, how wide they go at the slightest sound, how glassy and unblinking they seem, how they’re always darting away
all of that tells me a bit more about the character than whatever shade of gemstone they most resemble, seriously
Gotham, being the awesome writing classes school that it is, sometimes gets sent books! Recently, we received Now Write! Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horrorfrom Penguin books. As soon as it came out of the box, I whipped my head around because I LOVE Science Fiction and Fantasy! I wouldn’t say I’m the most in depth in terms of knowing books and authors, but it’s still the genre I…
This Saturday, I helped our lovely Gotham overlords at one of their weekly write-ins out in Brooklyn at Two Moon Art House and Cafe. Two Moon is wonderful and quiet and delicious. The other patrons seemed to respect the writing time and were quiet themselves. Two Moon has delicious pastries–I don’t really like lemon flavored pastries, but I at a whole slice of lemon pound cake. Twas delightful.
