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

A NaNoWriMo Update (Without An Original Post)

It's almost the end of 2019 which has personally been both an amazing and terrible year. It's going to end in a way I could have never expected, but not without National Novel Writing Month happening all around me, so I've decided for better or worse to take it on yet again. Someday I need… Continue reading A NaNoWriMo Update (Without An Original Post)

Post NaNo Wrap Up And Planning For 2019

Well, so much for Blogmas! Actually, I didn't plan on doing Blogmas, so I'm not behind or anything, but I would like to post regularly on here again. I need to find a way to do so that isn't as severe as every day, but not as wanting as every week. I have been writing,… Continue reading Post NaNo Wrap Up And Planning For 2019

NaNoWriMo 2018 – Winning!

Well, shit, you guys, it finally happened. I've been a member of the NaNo website for almost a decade, I used the site to track for the past three years (though I competed more often than that), and finally, last night, I became a winner for the first time in the month of November. I… Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2018 – Winning!

A Tiny NaNo Update At 40k Words

This is the letter you get at 40,000 words. It's incredibly encouraging, for me at least. What's especially funny though: I dyed my hair purple today for the first time in like four-ish months and the next scene I'm about the embark on literally is an awkward dinner. The universe has opened up and screamed,… Continue reading A Tiny NaNo Update At 40k Words

NaNoWriMo 2018 – 37,500 Words (75% Complete!)

Yesterday was the 18th, 60% done with the month, and 75% done with NaNo! Well, 3/4 of the way to the 50k word goal, at least. I'm feeling pretty good, very pumped to continuously be ahead of the word count, and super proud for spewing out words every day, even if some days that count… Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2018 – 37,500 Words (75% Complete!)

NaNoWriMo 2018 – 25,000 Words (The Halfway Mark!)

First 12,500 words. Last night I hit 25,000 words, orĀ 25,969 (nice) to be exact! I'm halfway there and though I'm a little bit behind my goal of hitting 50k by the 20th, I think I can still make it (especially if I keep on ignoring Vacancy). There have been a few weird days, but also… Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2018 – 25,000 Words (The Halfway Mark!)
