What even is blogging?

      Comments Off on What even is blogging?
A question mark drawn in chalk on a black board.

Obviously, I have no idea. My last post here was Valentine’s Day. That’s ridiculous. Granted, this time I actually have an excuse: school did kind of eat my face. It was all worth it, though! Check out these puppies: If you can’t see the image, it’s a list of all the classes I took and my final grade in each… Read more »

The Fear of Long Books

      Comments Off on The Fear of Long Books

This is something I’ve noticed lately in my time spent in various author places online. There is an almost pathological fear of long books. I see post after post from people worrying about their word count, that their book is “too long.” I see post after post of people saying “Keep your book short because all long books are unedited… Read more »

I’m failing Nanowrimo this year (and considering it a success)

I know what you’re about to say. You can’t fail Nanowrimo, so long as you get some writing done! If that’s the criterion, I have failed this year, because I have written 0 words. Zero. Look: Nothing. No words on Anala, no words on From the Ashes; just a smattering of words on blogs and some rants on Facebook. And… Read more »

Ways to sneak having ice cream for breakfast

      Comments Off on Ways to sneak having ice cream for breakfast

Throw it in your coffee. It’s cream and sugar, and this is also the easiest way to make a peppermint mocha if you don’t have peppermint syrup but do have mint chocolate chip ice cream. Roll it in corn flakes and call it cereal. An ice cream sandwich totally resembles a breakfast burrito, right? Go with that. Just fucking eat… Read more »

Episode 3 has been filmed

It just has not been edited yet, because I have been set back on EVERYTHING because of Stranger Skies edits/proof-making. I haven’t even worked on my Nano for several days. I would like to say I’ll be getting to it this weekend, but I won’t. This weekend is for relaxing at the Ogre’s. I am terribly sorry, but I am… Read more »

In which I yell into a microphone and shake like a leaf.

This is me at the VanSlam on Monday night. I haven’t watched the video and probably won’t. I have issues with watching myself on video and am not in the right headspace to do so today or maybe ever. But, you know, if you wanted to see me perform “Blood Candle”…there you go. Now, back to work, from which I… Read more »

That’s progress, I suppose

I have not actually written any on The Jade Star of Athering since August 2nd. However, I have thought about writing on it, and even opened the notebook to the appropriate page so I can start typing up the handwritten chapters I have done so I can continue on, as I’ve reached that point where I look at the  handwritten… Read more »

Daily Heart Attack

      Comments Off on Daily Heart Attack

Today I signed into Facebook and saw this:   Augh! What do you mean only ninety-eight days? I haven’t finished The Jade Star of Athering, Islands of Fire and Water, OR The Man of Bronze! How the frak am I supposed to start a new novel in 98 days??? Ahh! Ahhh! AHHHHHHHHHH! *hyperventilates* *calms down* Nope, still upset. Fuck.

Determination

It pays off. I found my notebook! As I was posting earlier it occurred to me, somewhere in that thing I call a brain, that the notebook may be in my set of plastic, clear drawers, because I remembered setting the notebook on top of the drawers while I was packing. So I toddled on down to the garage, where… Read more »

I’m still your best pilot

      Comments Off on I’m still your best pilot

I wrote 4,602 words in January and haven’t penned one since. I’m hoping to write about 26k a month this summer to try and catch up. We’ll see how that goes. Story goals are same as before, with an addition. Finish editing Parts 2 and 3 of Bellica and upload to site. Finish The Jade Star of Athering. Finish The Man of Bronze. Finish Islands… Read more »
