Because I'm working on that part of The Weary Traveler (the werewolf karaoke scene), I took a little time to put together a short playlist of female power ballads for funsies. This is a playlist for when you want to wear a sheer white robe and run down a darkened, abandoned manor corridor carrying a… Continue reading A Playlist For When Your Hair’s Big And Your Voice Is Even Bigger
I like "like" too much, so I always end up with similes.
But only by a little. 43,785 - That's how many words I ended up either revising, rewriting, or straight up newly drafted during November. I'm taking the old Vacancy serial and revamping it for a trilogy of novels and thought I'd use NaNo to help track my progress. I didn't take it as seriously as… Continue reading Well, December’s Here, And I Failed
From what I understand, book sales traditionally fall into the toilet around the holidays, or at least ebook and self-published book sales do. That makes sense: people are buying things for others, we don't typically give digital gifts, and self-published stuff is usually too genre-heavy and niche to give as a present anyway.

I'm… Continue reading My D&D Character – Emi Bounder
Warning: Body Horror What a week! I'm down two teeth and up one mental breakdown, so I'm fairly certain those cancel each other out which makes sense because I'm largely still on track for NaNo and generally would use the word "fine" to describe how I'm feeling. I'm sure for some people having one's wisdom… Continue reading Rolled a 20 for Con
I decided to record my progress on the NaNo site for the first time yesterday. Because I didn't bother to record every day's work (and because I honestly didn't know which day I did what), I just said I wrote 21k words in the span of an hour on the 12th. It's obviously untrue, and… Continue reading NaNo Rebelling
Look, I am a big fan of redemption arcs. I love to see a bad guy made good, a 180 in the direction of the light, but in this life I don't think you or I or anyone owe the people who haven't considered us human for the last four years much of anything at… Continue reading Cruel To Be Kind
