Posting to Instagram from Desktop

I don't understand why some applications insist on making their usage on anything but a phone near impossible, but Instagram seems to have decided that you can do just about everything from their desktop version of the site except actually post from it. For a 33-year-old, this is bad news bears because I'm okay with… Continue reading Posting to Instagram from Desktop

Lofty Goals and Living

Sometimes my nerves get the best of me. I've been doing better lately, fighting through the imposter syndrome and convincing myself there's some merit to my work, but it comes at the price of almost everything else. I'm working toward a balance, the problem is just that I'm so afraid of my mistakes outshining my… Continue reading Lofty Goals and Living

And then, when we do find… Continue reading Help An Indie Author With Reviews

While I do have… Continue reading Funny Beta Reader Comments

Now, releasing a book is much easier and more joyous, but back then I had no idea if I would… Continue reading A Year of the Pandemic and A Year of Self Publishing
