Well, hello there.

Welcome to my new writing space.  Anyone who is following my other blog (linky-doo on the sidebar) should not fear that I’ve given up my snarky, church-skewering ways.  This is just me finding some balance and separating my fun, silly side from my serious, activist side.  I’m likely to update this about once a week or so with my goofy little stories.

I hope you stick around for a while.  If you’d like to add your own voice, just click on “Submit a Story” above and we’ll chat.  See you on the other side of the page!
