Art Makes the World Go Round

I consider myself a very lucky person in that so many of my friends are exceptional artists. I'm doubly lucky because I was able to commission a piece from one of them based on The Korinniad. Tonenina, a friend I've had since I was 13 (that's almost 20 years!), crafted this amazing piece for me… Continue reading Art Makes the World Go Round

How Long Should My Chapters Be?

I made another AuthorTube video for this week, but I also thought I'd doctor up my script to make a post. If you'd rather watch this blog, scroll on down and go to YouTube, or you can also just keep reading if you find my voice as annoying as I do. So, a question that's… Continue reading How Long Should My Chapters Be?

Getting Hacked Sucks (And Other Observances)

I woke up to pee at about 1am on Wednesday. A normal occurrence, frequent even given my tiny bladder and penchant for hydration, but then this middle of the night wee ended up anything but normal as it sparked a four plus hour long clean up of my internet presence. A friend had texted me… Continue reading Getting Hacked Sucks (And Other Observances)

Art & Anxiety

This week has been one of the best and one of the worst. On one hand, I've completed something that I'm incredibly proud of, and I've put it out into the world. And on the other hand...I PUT IT OUT INTO THE WORLD! https://giphy.com/gifs/parks-and-rec-nbc-leslie-knope-10ABvIA9IM29tC That's the eternal struggle. I want to dedicate my life to… Continue reading Art & Anxiety

Episode IX

I'm just going to say it: I really enjoyed The Rise of Skywalker. Go ahead, blast(er) me for it, I don't care. The thing is, for the last five years, the only movies I've bothered to go to the theater for are Star Wars VII, VIII, and IX, Deadpool 1 and 2, Us, and Jurassic… Continue reading Episode IX

2020 Goals: My Year of Content

For the past two years, I've been working from home, and by "working" I mean writing and not making a damn cent. That all changes this year. I have a solid plan to release at least three books (self-published on Amazon) and produce at least three more drafts. Ideally, both of those threes will be… Continue reading 2020 Goals: My Year of Content

December Is For Losers

I lost NaNoWriMo. I am a failure. A disgrace. A loser. And that's okay. At 46,663 words in 30 days, I have officially failed 2019's National Novel Writing Month, but I'm not upset at that. In fact, I'm damn proud of myself for both pumping out that many words (though that pride is actually a… Continue reading December Is For Losers
