April CampNaNo Kickoff

It's finally April, a month I've been looking forward to (and also dreading a little) all year. When I planned out my 2020 writing schedule, I used the National Novel Writing Months as a framework for my first drafts. April, July, and November are all for drafting, while the other months are for brainstorming, plotting,… Continue reading April CampNaNo Kickoff

Novel (and) Coronavirus

(see what I did with the title there, oh, so clever am I, hehehe) I care about most companies's response to COVID-19 about as much as you care about my response, but since you're here, I guess I'll tell you how I'm coping. Basically, I am fine. I already work from home and have for… Continue reading Novel (and) Coronavirus

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

The Horror Of Taking Headshots

Probably the most demoralizing thing I've had to do in the process of getting ready to self publish hasn't been staring at a blank page, hoping the words will come, it hasn't been editing out thousands of words at a time because those words were hot trash, and it hasn't been sending off that story… Continue reading The Horror Of Taking Headshots

On The Road To Self Publishing

If you've looked at my website lately, you've seen that I've done a little overhaul of the design. It's simpler now, and has a landing page rather than the blog featured because, Dear Reader, I'm getting ready to make you into an actual reader. Of a book. By me. O. M. G. The Korinniad is… Continue reading On The Road To Self Publishing

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

Dedicate

A subtitle for today's blog could be "Planning for Brainstorm February," but I gotta stay on this month's brand, and dedicate actually works out. I dedicated today's practice, as Adriene asked us to, to "my work." It was meant to be a person or a thing that wasn't ourselves to prove how self love and… Continue reading Dedicate
