My name is Darcy. I am a writer, among other things.

 Bluebirds Ate My Brain began as a bridge from my fiancé Marty’s blog, Arriving Somewhere But Not Here, to help our friends through our grief over his death from complications of gastrointestinal disease. But it has since evolved into my own forum.

 BBAMB is also a device to discipline myself to write regularly—something that I take very seriously.

Why the wacky title?

The short answer is that I appreciate Mystery Science Theater 3000-style kitsch and I love bluebirds. A more metaphoric explanation is that this blog arose out of a mind-altering experience—of loss, shock, change, and hopefully growth.
