5 Strange Beers to Try for National Beer Day

Apparently today is National Beer Day. So in honor of the day, we have some pretty weird beers you may want to challenge yourself to trying out at least once.

10 Book Titles That Would Make Hilariously Terrible Valentine Candy Hearts

I was perusing my GoodReads "to read" list and I spotted a couple of titles that I thought would make hilariously terrible Valentine's Day Candy Hearts.

Yesterday, I came across a job for a writer on Craigslist. The headline read, “Need help from a writer for my manuscript.”. It was a cry of desperation. They couldn’t finish editing it, the ad read. They were exhausted and needed help. It struck a chord with me. A part of me was dying to respond to the ad, not with a helping hand but rather a kind word to the writer.

Over the past few weeks, I’ve started down the path of “ ghostwriting “. To be honest, I did not like the idea. I despised the whole concept of allowing someone to put their name next to my work.
