And Through the Woods…

I'm finally past the horrifying pain and emotions part! Hooray! Now onto the depressing "what is life" part! Yay! I'm really happy to see people following my progress on something that's really just for me. Something that I can only describe until it's completed. I got a new version of American Gods for Christmas. When… Continue reading And Through the Woods…

Down to the Wire

Okay. Let's be honest here for a second. If I don't finish this thing before Kingdom Hearts 3 comes out I'm pretty much doomed. I think I only lack three chapters from having the bare plot bones on the page so I think it's doable. I'm just getting sorta anxious that it's almost over if… Continue reading Down to the Wire

Return of the Mack

Here's my obligatory "everything is going great" post: Everything is going great. But no really, it is. For a long time, I've had a hard time finding the distinction between work and play because the "work" that I'd prefer to be doing could also be considered play. And because that play can also be considered… Continue reading Return of the Mack

I got a pretty pony

Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving! I ate too much food, became immobile for a whole hour, and then spent the next five hours hunting for a shiny Ponyta on Pokémon Let's Go Eevee. So I'm feeling pretty fulfilled. But ironically, on a day of appreciation and thankfulness, I found a silver lining in the… Continue reading I got a pretty pony

Maintaining Hope

Here's my obligatory political post folks. I know this isn't typically what you come here to read but it's something I think needs to be said. TL;DR Don't be afraid to make your voice heard. Please, please, please educate yourself on the candidates running in your state and vote. Ya know, getting political has become… Continue reading Maintaining Hope

Originally…

I've been thinking a lot about original stories and how their life expectancy is pretty low nowadays. What is it that makes most people prefer remakes, sequels, and prequels more than completely original stories? Maybe it's the mystery that turns people off, the possibility that might not be as good as something already successful like… Continue reading Originally…

I have tamed the Dragon

To my surprise, Dragon Con had a lot of accomplished authors. And they had some pretty great panels. I will admit, the first panel I attended wasn't at all what I was expecting. Who would've thought a panel titled "The Pen & The Sword: Arming the Written Word" would turn out to be four military… Continue reading I have tamed the Dragon

A Game of Choices

At first, I was going to make this into a dream poem but I wanted to be more explicit in the description of this particular dream. What's a Choice? I dreamt a dream I shouldn't remember. A clever dream, really. A dream more easily forgotten than the next, yet remembered. If only slightly. In another… Continue reading A Game of Choices

Learning and Stuff

Just wanted to say today that I think I'm finally out of my rut. I think I can finally get back to work for real this time, especially since the the kiddos are all back in school and now the library won't be an ironically loud mess. That was part of the problem, but certainly… Continue reading Learning and Stuff
