tricho – hair till(ein) – to pluck or pull out mania – madness

When I have trouble writing, the cause is usually a story right behind my eyes that’s clogging up the works.

Not always; sometimes I just don’t have anything to say, but often, I’m gutless and full of . . . → Read More: Naked Eyes and Angst

Seen and Heard

This is a guest post I wrote not too long ago for Erin. I wanted to reprint it here and make sure you all read it.

Why? Two reasons. First, because I’m preparing another guest post for someone else and I need to buy myself a little time. Second, and more important, is this: . . . → Read More: Seen and Heard

Raw Divinity

On July 4, 1997, my first husband, Robert, moved out of the house we shared. I went from stay-at-home, married mom of two babies to single, working, student mom of two babies.

I was 26 years, 3 months, and 10 days old.

I was adrift, completely unmoored from all that I believed about myself, . . . → Read More: Raw Divinity

In the Olden Days

When I was a little girl, I loved to ask my mom, “What was it like when you were a little girl in the olden days?”

And I was sort of kidding because I did, in fact, know that the 1950s were not the olden days, but I did love to hear how life . . . → Read More: In the Olden Days

Housekeeping Sucks

Carter and I are having a Prairie night, by which I mean that we’re snuggled up together in my bed watching Little House on the Prairie.

When LHOTP was released on DVD? Among the happiest events of my life.

Oh, shut up.

I admire Ma. Most kids who grew up in the 70s wished . . . → Read More: Housekeeping Sucks

Seen and Heard at Healthy, Unwealthy, and Becoming Wise

A Little of This, A Little of That, and My Inauspicious Writerly Beginnings

Holy ultra-serious blogeration, Batman!

Let’s take it down a notch or nine, shall we?

Because in spite of all the intensity I have expressed here recently, life is damn good right now.

“Damn good” is, of course, subjective. My damn good is not the same as yours (well, for a few of you it’s . . . → Read More: A Little of This, A Little of That, and My Inauspicious Writerly Beginnings

Watch your mouth!

I’ve been all over the internet in the past hour, reading what other people have written about psychiatric terms used as slurs, insults, or jokes, and then I read comments. Many hundreds of comments.

People have strong feelings on this matter. And by strong I mean violent. I’m stunned by the vitriol out there . . . → Read More: Watch your mouth!

I’m Full of Surprises

Surprise! It’s not as good as a pony or one of those giant rainbow lollipops, but still, a surprise is a surprise, right?

I’ve been waiting on pins and needles to get moved into my new blog home to unveil two new features here at No Points for Style. The first is a blog . . . → Read More: I’m Full of Surprises

New Digs

Heya, folks! Welcome to my new home! There’s lots more work to be done, but the basics are in place. It’s sort of like after you move and the furniture is in place, the beds have been made, and the kitchen is put together, but the garage is still full of boxes and there . . . → Read More: New Digs
