Back on Hiatus

Hey, everyone. I'm going to keep this one short. First thing's first . . . I hated last week's post. I rushed through something I'd intended to be important and beautiful. While at the Met, I'd taken a bunch of pictures I intended to use in "The Emperor's Gun," explaining how much inspiration museums provide … Continue reading Back on Hiatus

The Plot, As It Is Now

Hi there. Apologies for this one being late, but I used my days off this week to hunker down and finish editing Memory: Shadow of the Lord Sun. I completed it on Tuesday, then had to work the rest of the week until today, so sacrifices were made. I'm still really happy about it though, because … Continue reading The Plot, As It Is Now

“Aixa the Hexcaster” has been published at Mirror Dance!

I said that I'd post again if I got published. So, with a ton of self-control, I'd like to say that . . . OMFG YOU GUYS . . . <clears throat> My short story, "Aixa the Hexcaster," has been published at Mirror Dance Fantasy. I have the privilege of sharing the Autumn 2016 issue … Continue reading “Aixa the Hexcaster” has been published at Mirror Dance!

A Long Break

Early October, 2015: "It's postin" time!" I thought it--or maybe I actually shouted it--at my computer. And then I sat there, staring at its screen. It wasn't that I couldn't think of a topic; there was always some aspect of writing I could spend hours writing about. Dishing about. Nit-picking. Hours. Hours that always absorbed whole writing sessions. Because, as … Continue reading A Long Break

Update: First “Update” for 2015 and Last “Update” for the Rest of Time

Happy 2015, people! I hope the year's been going well for you so far. My first fifteen days have been acceptable; pretty full of editing and working--which, along with sleep, make up the three primary modes of my life. But before I go on here, I want to clarify the title of this post. So, … Continue reading Update: First “Update” for 2015 and Last “Update” for the Rest of Time

Update: Memory of the Black Sun–My NaNoWriMo 2014 Project–is Finished

Where I Wrote: At home, in the one room I always use for writing. How I Feel About What I Wrote: Strange. The ending is a complication. The Mood I Brought to the Table: I remember being really happy. I want to say determined, but that would imply that there was some difficulty. There wasn't; I woke up, … Continue reading Update: Memory of the Black Sun–My NaNoWriMo 2014 Project–is Finished

Brand New Day – Week 3 – Caught Between the Bell Curves

It's Thursday night. I want to knock out a post before I get to bed; I'm going to Queens Comic Con tomorrow with Kenney Broadway and Chaos Mechanica. It's an outing that was pretty exciting until I 8PM hit earlier and I realized that I somehow didn't get anything done for my book today. I know that's not exactly … Continue reading Brand New Day – Week 3 – Caught Between the Bell Curves

Brand New Day – Week 1

Last week, on Wednesday, the 14th, I worked my last day at Borders. The rest of that week and the weekend that followed disappeared in a bunch of Borders closing parties (and the hang-overs that followed). Yesterday, Monday, the 19th, was a brand new day. In short, it was the beginning of my gamble to … Continue reading Brand New Day – Week 1

Saying My Goodbyes

This isn't going to be another extremely bleak post; despite the title, I've decided that it won't because, although I still stand by everything I said in Preparing for the Storm (despite how embarrassingly true all of it was), I'm determined to not be as depressed as I was when I wrote that post. Today's my … Continue reading Saying My Goodbyes
