6. Dear Books

Dear Books I cannot and do not wish to think of a life without you in it. Our relationship has had its ups and downs. Sometimes we’re in too deep and we know it. We stay up far too late; we hide from family members and responsibilities so that we can spend more time together. […]

5. Dear Intuition

Dear Intuition You remind me of the best friend character in a rom-com, always in the background, always with the advice that we wish the main character would only listen to before it’s too late. You’re a bit of a know-it-all, but in the nicest possible way. I don’t think men really understand intuition. Not like […]

4. Dear Morning

Dear Morning The way I feel about you, Morning, could be summed up in two words involving an F and a U – but since I’ve agreed to write this letter as part of our therapy, I will try to be more specific. First of all, what’s your problem, anyway? Sorry. That’s not a good start. I know, […]

3. Dear Feet

Dear Feet I admit that you and I haven’t always been close. I say this now before I really begin this letter because I don’t want there to be any misunderstandings between us. The truth is, I don’t like you very much. I mean, I’m thankful that you’re on the ends of my legs and […]

2. Dear Home

The Caravan *** Some sweary words are featured in this piece *** “Jesus Christ, Liam, will you just get in the damn car.” His words come out quiet, even though they’re mean. I take two steps toward the passenger door and stare at the rust spots on the chrome handle. He’s already settling himself in […]

1. Dear Love

Dear Love We’ve gotten to know one another well haven’t we, these past three years. Once, you were a notion – something difficult to pin down or describe. A feeling. But now that we spend so much time working together – crafting stories, figuring out what role you’ll have to play, I’ve been forced to […]

30. A menu for my last meal ever.

I’ve been waiting for this one. No embarrassing story. No personal details. This one is so easy! First of all, since this is fantasy-land, can we just make it so that everyone in my family can eat anything they want and not get sick? Grand. Let’s get started then. You’re walking into my home, and since […]

29. I ask advice.

Let’s talk characters. I’m starting to think about the third book in the series now that The ‘Ohana Tree is almost out (2 days to go!) and in my little moments of musing and dreaming, I’ve been focusing on characters. I’ve been asked a few times about how I come up with my characters. I […]

28. 5 things I’m loving right now.

Spotify I feel like Spotify was made for people like me. People who love music, but struggle to name a genre they like, or who their favourite band is. My favourite features of Spotify are the “Mood” section and the “Related Artists” section. Being into music is a sort of new thing for me. I’ve […]

27. What I’m dreaming about.

When I can’t sleep, which is often, I like to wander in my mind. I have my favourite haunts – Paris at night, the sandy streets of Jaisalmer, Worser Bay Beach. But lately, there’s a new place my mind likes to visit on those long, silent nights when sleep refuses to come. This wandering is […]
