Greetings and Welcome!
You’ve reached KirSphere, my little home on the internet, and Lagniappe for Writers and Artists: the blog about the extras that facilitate creative life.
I’m Kiran, a writer living in Los Angeles, California, with my cat, Simon.
Lagniappe is a term I learned living in Lafayette, Louisiana. It’s Cajun for “something extra,” and originally referred to a little something a merchant might throw in with your purchase as a bonus, like a 13th doughnut.
I’m a writer, but there’s so much more to being able to live a life purposed toward creative work than doing the work itself. It’s so awesome that there are so many blogs about how to write, how to publish, how to draw, paint, how to make whatever, and I wanted to write about everything else that brings all that within reach, the lagniappe to our creative lives.
So here, I explore all those extra things that make our creative lives possible: good living, good eating, organization and productivity, self-determination, being a peaceful warrior, picking the best eggs at the supermaket, and cats.
I look forward to both sharing what I discover and hearing back from you what’s in your amazing mind.
