This is where thoughts become things.

Hi, I'm Daniela. Welcome to my personal lair on the Internet. This is where I write about storytelling, activism, technology and pop culture. Sometimes I post videos. I update my lair when the mood strikes me. Follow me on Twitter for daily updates (@dcap).

Yes, I’ve Been Doing Some Writing.

Here are some of my latest clips:

My goal was to culture jam in such a way that young people who had MTV on their radar would also know about #SayHerName if they didn’t already, as well as find out about the Black Girls Lead conference. Nailed it.

My amazing editor Shana asked me to write about this topic and I was able to include – along with celebrities who don’t necessarily need more fame – some amazing activists who inspire me every day. Nailed it.

I don’t know about you, but I love Lucy Lawless and vampires in equal measure. I got to preview the “Salem” trailer and go full fangirl. Nailed it.

This post is a promise to myself that since I apparently have time to write for pay, I’m going to (gasp!) start blogging on The Lair every day, no matter what. I think I’ve attempted to do this a few times since 2007, but paid work and life have always been obstacles. Despite my legitimate excuses for not writing consistently, I’m going to start taking advantage of this website I pay for and share more of my own creative writing with the world. Wish me luck.
