Write Tunes – U

Finally feeling better. Being sick over the past week really took all the energy out of me. But I'm alive! And it's time to get back to work on Wayfinder. Between work and depression, I haven't touched the novel in a little over a month. And I've basically gotten lost. I lost that deep connection… Continue reading Write Tunes – U

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

Write Tunes – Another Flammarion Woodcut

This song tells such an innocent story accompanied by some resonating melodies that just really got to me. For whatever reason, when I first listened to Grammatology by Adjy, it never occurred to me that the band might have other good songs. So to think that I've just been existed without having heard the rest… Continue reading Write Tunes – Another Flammarion Woodcut

Write Tunes – May

I've been really busy lately. I'm amazed that I found time to write some somewhat decent poems actually. Unfortunately, I think my schedule combined with another round of good ol' depression has pushed my expected finish date back a little. So now I'll just say I'm hoping to be done by the end of the… Continue reading Write Tunes – May

Nevermess

I'd rather be anyone else. The second guessing, the things I've felt, I could trade it all and melt into another life. Betrayal of body and soul. I've grown attached to you, you who lives in my head. Despite the pain you've caused and that time you said that I'm not enough, leaving a hole… Continue reading Nevermess

Write Tunes – Thread

This week's New Tunes Tuesday was almost too good. Made it really hard to just pick one song. But I went with "Thread" for its lyrics. They really just resonated with me. There's not a lot of imagery, but there's a lot of emotion just in the words that really moved me. Anyway, I hope… Continue reading Write Tunes – Thread

Write Tunes – Cherry Cola

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

Sensation

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

Back into the Action

It's been a weird week. Weird doesn't even begin to describe it actually. I found a new side of myself that I didn't know existed. In a way, it left me kinda dumbfounded. And I basically surrendered to a new set of ideals for the whole week completely unintentionally. I realize I'm being overly cryptic… Continue reading Back into the Action

Strength to Protect What Matters

So, quick progress update: I haven't felt this motivated in a very long time. Finally, I'm back in the headspace of almost exclusively thinking about writing and it's fantastic. But I'd be lying if I said I got to this point alone. If it weren't for my friend being genuinely interested in the story and… Continue reading Strength to Protect What Matters
