Hello! I’m Sarah Langcuster, reader, writer, baker, and host of this blog. I grew up writing stories as a young’un in the Deep South (where I still live), but gave it up in college, which I convinced myself was a serious place where silly dreams got pushed by the wayside in order to make room for serious things like careers and life paths.
But, as fate would have it, I read House of the Spirits by Isabel Allende my last semester of graduate school. It’s this weird and wonderful story about four generations of women who are mermaids, but also tough-as-nails guerilla warrior women. Highly recommend. All of that rich storytelling and girl power brought back the nourishment and excitement that inspired me to read and write many years before. Not long after that, I started writing again.
Now as a recovering perfectionist (not a humble brag, just neurosis, honestly), I have been working on a novel, have found a career that I love, and have ventured into many new pastimes — like baking!
Towards the end of 2015, I created this site as a way to share some things I’ve learned fellow writers and readers.
Please look around! I hope you find something that helps you here.
