I started Every Strange as a New Year’s resolution to prove to myself that you can still be interesting even if you wear a suit to work. I’m always on the hunt for unusual places to visit, events to attend, and entertainment to break up my workweek.
Ultimately, all of these things inspired me to get back into creative writing, and this blog has become a home for my poetry and short stories, alongside the quotes, places, sights, and music that continue to inspire me.
There are seven different types of posts you can expect to see here at Everyday Strange:
Muse of the Day: An offbeat inspirational or just unusual quote. I loosely stick to a theme each week, and will choose just about anything that strikes my interest.
Strange Images: Pictures I’ve taken, usually in the run, of anything that catches my attention.
Strange Music: Each Sunday I choose a different musical performance to feature. In the past I’ve written about everything from classical musicians covering pop songs, ballet and ice skating paired with alt rock, and avant-garde musicians.
Strange Events/Places: Every Friday I write about a strange place I’ve visited or event I’ve attended. Goldmines, Russian submarines, burlesque shows, all kinds of odd things. Sometimes I feature the strange details of a widely traveled place, and occasionally just something well known that really surpassed my expectations.
Strange Happenings: Each month I gather a list of all of the offbeat shows, movies, and other events to look forward to.
Strange Thoughts: These are my middle of the week free for all posts. I write about anything that I found interesting or unusual.
Strange Writing: All of my creative writing. Poetry, flash fiction, and short stories. Typical subjects are horror, alienation, and nature, but I do occasionally branch into other subjects as well.
About Me: I am an intj who loves learning about everything and filing it away for later. I live with my husband and two dogs in Charlotte, North Carolina. I currently work for a massive corporation that shall never be named here due to the piles of paperwork I signed when they hired me.
