My Very Own Apocalypse

Just what every little girl dreams of, right? A little over a year ago I was treated to my very own apocalypse, and I have survived to tell the tale, so far. The following are some of the highlights – if they can be called that – of my journey of soul-shattering destruction, unlikely survival, and rebuilding in the aftermath. (Note: I am in the process of moving these posts over to this new site from my blogs, so the links will change).

I’ve been thinking about writing a book about all this, and many people have encouraged me to do so, but as I review these posts that somehow already perfectly fit into three sections of five chapters each… I think I already have? Let me know what you think.
