What's it take to be the farmer not the man on the farm? If Karma's a bitch then what are we? The way out is damaging. The distillation of what we call progress. Subtle changes in form yet still the same. Who am I to say what it means to be free?
I constantly struggle with how obvious a symbol should or shouldn't be. And most recently, I've been paralyzed with indecision. There's a very blurred line between a totally missing the message and so obvious that it can come off as offensive. Admittedly my reservations of tackling a turbulent topic are probably a contributing force in… Continue reading Toeing the Line
It's time for a progress update! Yeah! Unsurprisingly, I only met half of my goal. I finished one chapter. But I've made a lot of headway on the next one. I've been doing a lot of research. Made a lot of notes. So I still call it a win. Even still, I think I can… Continue reading Write Tunes – Breath
So I got really busy this morning and now I'm late posting this, but I'm still working on the novel a bunch so I'm just going to keep it brief today. I've been thinking a lot about how descriptive I need to be in my writing. Since it's from my protag's POV, I've taken the… Continue reading Something to Hold on to
Lately, I've found that my chapter outlines are just completely pointless. Almost to the point of being self-defeating. I know I've talked about this before but it's actually kind of funny how much of a departure I end up taking from my outlines now. I think it's because when I'm writing the outlines, I'm thinking… Continue reading I just can’t do outlines
Alright. It's time to quit dragging my ass and get back to work. Again. Hoping to have this chapter done tonight and the next one by the end of the week. Bold ambition coming from me, but it's doable and I would never make any progress without setting goals for myself. Honestly, I'm not sure… Continue reading Write Tunes – Cherry Cola
During Ubisoft's press conference, I was introduced to really ingenious site called hitRECord.org by Joseph Gordon-Levitt. He introduced it as a way for the creative side of the gaming community to contribute to an upcoming game: Beyond Good and Evil 2. Immediately I was like, sign me up. And I did sign up. I'm not… Continue reading Hitting Record
A prisoner of a place of my own design, resigned to stay and stay out of the way. With shackles loose and the cell door cracked, I'm practically asking myself why I even bothered.
In the spirit of watching E3 today and getting more looks at Kingdom Hearts 3, I wanted to share Utada Hikaru's new song for the game. This song makes me really emotional. It just does. I can't really describe how or why, but it does. Well I guess I probably could but the explanation would… Continue reading Write Tunes – Think Twice
I'm struggling to find something that hasn't been said already. I know there's some string of words that wants to be said but it's all so familiar now. Honestly, I'm having trouble pinpointing my ideas for this post after watching the Sense8 finale this morning, and, just by the way, its brilliance and complexity cannot… Continue reading Sensation
