Welcome to Plan Q! This is where I jot it all down, sum it all up, get it all out of my head.
On most days, trying to balance all the necessary elements of life, all the spinning plates, whips me right past plan A, and usually past plans B and C pretty fast, too. “Plan Q” may be theoretical, but it’s also become a title, a mantra, and a more than okay place to end up.
Plan Q chronicles real-life experiences and viewpoints — funny, stressful, tearful, mundane — and how they all tie together to define our lives. Sometimes I throw some fiction, too. I hope these pieces make you laugh, cry, feel, think, and wonder. That’s what writing and reading do for me, so if I can pass on any of that, then all the twists and turns that land me at Plan Q are more than worth it!
