Welcome to my private corner of the internet. I'm Alexis, and for some reason I'm shy online in a way I never am in person, so please talk to me, because the chances of me talking to you first (other than as anon) are slim to none. I write all the time, poems and stories and fics, and I'm currently trying to work up the courage to actually post some of it. Until then, this is my cache of interesting, amusing, and potentially arousing posts. If you don't read the tags, you're probably missing about half of it. Enjoy.

No writing is wasted. Did you know that sourdough from San Francisco is leavened partly by a bacteria called lactobacillus sanfrancisensis? It is native to the soil there, and does not do well elsewhere. But any kitchen can become an ecosystem. If you bake a lot, your kitchen will become a happy home to wild yeasts, and all your bread will taste better. Even a failed loaf is not wasted. Likewise, cheese makers wash the dairy floor with whey. Tomato gardeners compost with rotten tomatoes. No writing is wasted: the words you can’t put in your book can wash the floor, live in the soil, lurk around in the air. They will make the next words better.

Three different versions of Pompeii. Capitol Studios, Brit Awards performance, and the original. I don’t know what happened.

As a random thought…
