I’m a 20-something recent Creative Writing graduate and sort-of-adult who spends more time telling others how to write than working on my own writing. Above all, I believe in the power of story, which is why Scheherezade is my hero. It’s also why I’ve wanted to be an author since I was 5 and do not plan to change that goal anytime soon. I am an avowed bookworm and Disney nerd who will take over the world as soon as I drink enough coffee to give me superpowers.
This blog started out as a sort of anonymous journal, but now is a place for me to share my thoughts about the books I read, the problems I see with our society’s treatment of mental health, and the stuff going on in my own life.
The title of the blog came from my sister, Bird. I was telling her about the contents of this antique book I had just bought, The New Book of Fairies, which included book fairies, bread fairies, soot fairies, and grammar fairies. “Oh,” said Bird, “that explains you. Maybe you’re a changeling and the grammar fairies left you for us.”
Thanks for reading!
I have been searching for the Moses song for years. I would love to sing the song with my preschoolers but I can only remember the line, “Moses, floating in a basket, drifting down the river Nile … Is there any way you could ask your mom for the words to the 5 verses and send them to me? Thank you in advance. 🙂
Hi Jaynie! I did end up finding the lyrics and they’re in the comments on my “Teaching Moments with Skits and Donuts” post!
