Blog Post #40
Greetings, People of the Internet. Today I want to talk to about keeping on top of life goals, spending enough money to make you want to die inside, and word counts. Maybe make yourself a cup of tea and turn up some MCR first? Continue reading

Blog Post # 33
August has come to an end. The year is more than half over, and what a year it’s been. There are word counts and reading I could be talking about, but there are things more important than that sitting on the horizon, dark clouds promising lighting and rain. But for familiarity’s sake, let’s talk about the word counts first. Continue reading
Okay, so my New Year’s Eve party this year a little more than nerd-tastic. I may have strung up a crossbow, watched Ant-Man, and fangirled about the sheer awesomeness that was the fight scene featured in the Captain America: Civil War trailer. Have you not seen the trailer? REALLY? Do it. Do it now. For the shield. Because that part alone was sheer genius.
Excuse me while I cage my inner fangirl. Right, where were we? New Year’s Party! Continue reading

Yeah, we’re here again. Another year done and over, and I’m wondering what I have to show for it on the writing facet of my life. I looked back at the massive gap in my posting schedule, and while I found the nearly seven month gap depressing, I noted that in Two Years! I’d written ten blog posts in this past year. Accounting for the two I’ve written since then, my total stands at twelve. While most of those were posted at the beginning of year, one a month isn’t the worse average. Even the little reminder that I had listened to hundreds of writing and self-publishing podcasts astounded me because to be honest, I had completely forgotten that. The hours I work shifted from super early, to relatively normal. While it did wonders for the amount of sleep I average a night (November aside), it cut out the four or so hours a week I could invest in podcast listening. I suppose the computer issues I had with ZJ did little to aid in my attempt to keep my Ipod up-to-date with the latest content. Continue reading
Obviously, I fell off the writing bandwagon. Hard. More like the bandwagon stopped for the night at a shady inn. There, instead of sleeping, I encountered some pirates, sang some sea shanties, and sailed to a completely different country where writing at length to rest of the world isn’t possible. Or at least, that would be the much more interesting turn I wish my life had taken.
A lot of things happened in my life while I was off the bandwagon. Some of those included moves, trips, and day to day life. The most important of these “things” was my decision on or about October 28th to finally stop saying, “It would be so much fun” or “I wish I had time for it” and commit to NaNoWriMo. Continue reading
