about this amelia and this blog

this little blog is for little snippets of writing about my scholarly thinking, various books and art and crafts and other-people's-writing and anything else that catches my interest. if it sounds pointless and pretentious to you, maybe you're right.  

here, in case you're curious, is a bit of explanation on the blog's first title: fear, anger, and doubt.

and once you've got that, a few other posts concerning the exigence (or lack thereof) behind this little corner of the internet: the very first postresurrectionwho am I talking to?look againhalf a dozenamelioration, and usable pasts.

every Sunday I used to post one of the sketches I'd drawn in church. I should do weekly art posts again. someday. in the meantime, there is my instagram.

my main goals in life involve asking more than enough questions and being open to as many possibilities as possible. I want to always be learning, seeing new perspectives, and doing what I can to be good and positive in a messy, difficult world. I'm a professor of writing and rhetoric in Arizona at the moment. I love podcasts and I think every podcast deserves a good transcript.

also: I do some freelance editing and proofreading from time to time. if you are writing or have written anything at all, imagine me begging you to let me proof it. $8/page is my going rate for that, depending on the project, but we can negotiate for chocolate or ice cream if we must.
