New England Revolution Academy, here we come!

Greetings from Springgedonland! This apocalyptic reading, writing and blogging beast salutes you!

LIFE IS CRAAAAZYYYY! BUT HERE I AM! I[I can’t believe but I’m posting! YAAAAY!]

Family Life

Continues to be all about soccer. Butterfly and Grasshopper’s were at a half-day soccer camp during the spring break. And Friday….



Grasshopper was invited to a training with the New England Revolution academy!

The New England Revolution is an American professional soccer club based in the Greater Boston area that competes in Major League Soccer (MLS), in the Eastern Conference of the league. It is one of the ten charter clubs of MLS!

This is the invitation…


So even if it doesn’t go beyond this one training…

I think it’s pretty cool they noticed Grasshopper!

Because of the school break, last week was craaaaazier than usual so I didn’t read, write or blog as much as I wanted to. AND NO YOGA FOR ME NEITHER! This has to stop. I WANT MY YOGAAAAA! Humph!

I did not post about my beautiful yoga temple last week but I WILL tomorrow. Another sneak peek…

Ok… So, no yoga.. BUT STILL I’m amazed with myself. [not a lot of modesty here, but when you are a Springgedon survivor you pat yourself in the back people!] I even watched one episode of a new  TV show and one movie! I watched Unplugged Nation, which is like this perfect Bunkerized Chicken Coop TV Show! and watched Split and even though I didn’t pay much attention because I was writing this post, I did like it a lot. It was very creepy, suspenseful and the acting really, really good.

So, let’s unplug, go live off the grid and survive the Z apocalypse

and multiple personalities psycho killers!


So far I have written 17.6 K wonderful words for my Camp NaNoWriMo project, that means only 2.4K more to go! According to my statistics I should be done by the 26th!

These are the board that inspired these 17.6K words these last three weeks…

Week 1 – The Originals

Week 2 – The Daughters of the Desert

Week 3 – Captive Essence


I’m hoping this board will inspire the last 2.4K words to win Camp NaNoWriMo…

Week 4 – Global Armies

And and hoping this board will inspire the last 20K words I’m hoping to write in May…

May – The Dark Days

I’m also pretty sure I finally made up my mind about the genre of my trilogy! I want the genre to be somewhere in that grey area between Magical Realism  and Fantasy, more specifically dark fantasy, So my book will be a fantastic dark magical realism book [HA! That DOES sound freaking AWESOME!].

So I added some Magical Realism to my TBR because I want to stay ON TRACK. Humph! I want to quiet the Voices in my Head!

AND I want to write better imagery and descriptions. Because this crazy brain of mine has NO problem whatsoever coming up with fantastic, magical tales. NOPE. I’m borderline crazy imaginative BUT it’s the descriptions that kill me because my crazy Dory brain doesn’t pay much attention to details. In case you are not familiar, this is the definition of Magical Realism from Goodreads…

Expresses a primarily realistic view of the real world while also adding or revealing magical or supernatural elements presented in an otherwise real-world or mundane setting. It is sometimes called fabulism, in reference to the conventions of fables, myths, and allegory.


I’m still a reading beast who is EIGHT books ahead in her Goodreads reading challenge! A cheating reading beast that read a few short books BUT STILL!. This is Springgedon people! The normal rules don’t apply. Remember the saying? “All is Fair in Love , War AND Springgedon”???


Reading Now

I’m reading THREE Magical Realism, books and by Isabel Allende, Neil Gaiman and Laini Taylor and… Boy, these power houses DO WRITE beautiful things! I definitely want to be like them when I grow up 🙂
