Welcome to my little corner of the internet, where I aim to cultivate a consistent writing habit through reflecting on the world around me and my experiences with it. There will be thoughts on books, board games and Dungeon and Dragons, TV shows and movies and Story. I am hopelessly in love with Story. With a capital “S.” It is a beautiful thing and I want to chase after it and wrestle with and write about.
In one of my favorite blog posts ever written, Emily P. Freeman wrote:
I’m not yet sure how this will turn out, but that’s the beauty of blog writing – it’s an invitation to enter into the middle of a story without the pressure of either having to know the beginning or close it up neatly.
A blog is often a collection of middle narratives, reflections that happen in between beginnings and endings.
– Emily P. Freeman, “Before Helpless Turns to Hopeless
This is my collection of middle narratives. I don’t know everything and some days I wish I did before I felt the need to write about it. But then, nothing would get written would it? 🙂

And the professional bit:
Tracy Erler lives with her husband and three cats and loves story in all forms. Early-2000s Contemporary YA is her jam, but Fantasy is vying first place. Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, A Thousand Splendid Suns, and if i stay, and The Green Mile are her “Always” stories. She’s a job coach for adults with disabilities, but writing is her first love. You can find her at home or a friend’s house, in a Dungeon and Dragons campaign or in a random coffee shop out in the community–on a mission to find the best iced chai latte and a cup of coffee she doesn’t have to drown in milk and sugar.
