The past 360 days have been amazing—I can hardly believe I’ve been writing on this digsite and annoying you all for almost a whole year now! Seems like just yesterday I started reporting Mariposa’s unethical writing habits and giving you bad advice. Through it all, Mariposa and I have: 1. Written over fifty thousand useful … Continue reading Celebrating One Year at Dino’s Digest!
Contrary to the headline, this month is not the best month of the year. Organized Authorosaurus that I am, I write my posts a month in advance, which means whatever you’re reading now I wrote so long ago that I probably don’t even remember what I wrote. That means the headline is referring to April—which … Continue reading A Day in Mariposa’s Office: Celebrating the Best Month of the Year
How do you like the new and not-improved Dino’s Digest? I have made a list of necessary and unnecessary improvements and enhancements, including: An insider’s look into my boss’s life.

I wish you hadn’t, because she got her own WordPress … Continue reading A New Day in Mariposa’s Office: A Grand Unveiling of the Good, the Bad, & the Stupid
After all that thinking last month, my boss and I are ready to stop thinking. Believe me, it’s as bad as it sounds, because now it’s time to work and start implementing our goals for the new year. And, of course, like the logical beings that we are, we had to set high goals (not … Continue reading A Day in Mariposa’s Office: Surveying & Strategizing
Happy almost Valentine’s Day, humans! Have you sent out your Valentines? I already bought my true love a box of books (much better than a box of chocolates). Who am I kidding? I don’t have a true love; I bought myself the box of books. That way I can sit and cry my head off … Continue reading Valentine’s Day According to Writers
Happy New Year, humans! Did you stay up till midnight? My friends and I got together and had a dino-opoly competition, ate prehistoric pizza, and watched Drawassic Park. But it’s a new year now and that means... 358 DAYS TILL NEXT CHRISTMAS! No, seriously, it actually means my inbox is flooded with fitness advertisements (I … Continue reading 18 Resolutions Every Writer Needs to Make
Happy Day-After-Christmas! Did you have a nice Christmas? I spent most of yesterday eating my presents and now I only have two lonely books left! Normally I would be sad, but an unusually wonderful honor has helped cheer me up. You see, my digsite is so awesome I received an award! Yeah, I can hear … Continue reading The Liebster Award
I don’t like Christmastime. I realize I just posted a short story where I played the part of Scrooge, but that has no bearing whatsoever on the previous statement. Really, I don’t dislike Christmas, just Christmastime (big difference). And the reason I dislike it has absolutely nothing to do with Christmas at all. The reason … Continue reading Days NOT in Mariposa’s Office: A Dinosaur’s Complaint About Christmas
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite times of the year because I can stuff myself with BOOKS! Now, I know I’ve been griping about how I’m sick of eating books, but that was a week ago, and these books are specially cooked. As you can see from the picture, my family has quite the feast … Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving from the Createtus Period!
Are you enjoying NaNoWriMo? I hope so, because I’m not. I’m already two weeks into NaNoWriMo and my word count is up to 40,000. My book-eating count is up to 50,000. And my energy count is down to zero. I can’t believe it, but I’m sick of eating books. And even more of writing books. … Continue reading 14 Reasons I Am (or Will Be) Thankful I’m Not Writing
