Where You'll Find Me

I'm currently running my blog over at WritersAfterDark.net. I'd love it if you stopped by and hang for a bit! I'll return the favor, promise!

Running two blogs gets a bit difficult, so bear with me while I figure things out. In the meantime, if I could interest you in industry news, writing tips, and poking some fun at writerly problems, you'll find me here:

A to Z Challenge—S.K.-isms! S is for . . .



S is for Selfologist. Defined as specializing in studying all about oneself. Example:


“Hey, Kev!”
“Annie!”
“I heard she broke up with you. What’d you do?”
“Nothing!” Kevin shook his head. “She just decided she wanted to find herself.”
“Uh-huh . . .”
“Seriously! She said she needed to figure out what makes her happy, what she wants in life, her favorite color. I dunno, Annie. Chick’s tripping. She wants to, what? Become a selfologist all of a sudden? Like she doesn’t know anything about herself already, Jeez! No wonder I could never figure her out myself.”


*S.K.’s original term. No comments, 'cause what can I say?
**Characters in Static. It might happen, who knows? (No!)

  14. Nice. I know a couple people like that--still trying to find themselves. I think you really find yourself when you forget about yourself and go to work serving others--building them up and sharing love.

  17. I read that Selfology when in the context of a relationship derives from the old Celtic Term, Itsnotuitsme

  18. I love learning ancient Celtic terms...

    And I think I know at least one person with a degree—a doctorate, perhaps—in Selfology.
