I love you as certain dark things are to be loved, in secret, between the shadow and the soul. ~Pablo Neruda


Vote for Pedro!

Okay, so you’re not really going to be voting for Pedro (however cool that would be). No, you’re going to be voting for my article, “The Fashionista Wannabe,” so I can win $50. It’s easy. You just copy and paste the following address into your bar:


and rate me using the stars at the top of the article. You aren’t even required to read it (but you can if you like). And that’s it! That’s all you have to do to help me win. So please go vote!

Dead Submissions

So you’ve got this great poem. You’ve labored on it for a long time and you get it just right and decide you want to get it published. Good. Great even. So you submit it to a magazine. And they reject you. Not so great. But why? Why??

Well, it’s possible they don’t know what good poetry is. It’s also possible it’s just not their genre of poem. I mean, you would think people would publish good stuff, right? Well, everyone’s taste is different. Just accept it, and go publish it somewhere else. 🙂

There’s an easy answer to everything.

The First Post!

I don’t know why, but I always feel I have to have this dumb first post entry. It makes me feel better when I don’t know what to write. And it helps to introduce myself, which I have yet to do with this dumb post…

You can call me Tiff. I’m pretty easy-going like that. I want to be an author (the professional kind), but I need to finish my first manuscript before that can happen. Getting close to 15,000 words, though. And so far, it seems to be coming along nicely.

I also started making jewelry. I don’t have very many pieces yet, but I do plan on selling them at some point. Prices are ranging from $10-$20 USD, which isn’t bad. I may post some pics on here when I’m ready to sell. 🙂
