A Little of your Time

Welp. Here's the entire first chapter if you'd like to take a look. It's about 7,000 words or about 30 pages, by the way. If you're feeling up to the task and have already read the bit I shared before, there's a big ole horizontal line where you left off. I almost didn't share this… Continue reading A Little of your Time

When you play the Game of Thrones

I'm not sure if it's because I'm still recovering from last night's Game of Thrones, but I may be having an existential crisis over things happening behind the scenes. In regards to the episode and my own writing. But don't be alarmed, no spoilers here. So last night we learned that there were some crucial… Continue reading When you play the Game of Thrones

The Unpopular Death Note Theory

So about a month ago, I talked about how determining if books aren't inherently better than their film adaptations. It's all subjective. Link to that post is here if you'd like to read it. Today, I wanted to bring it up again because Netflix just released their live-action film adaptation of the Death Note anime. And… Continue reading The Unpopular Death Note Theory

Skip to the Good Bit

So on day three of unemployment, I feel like I'm finally back on track as far as writing goes. I should have chapter four done either tonight or tomorrow and I'm now realizing just how long this whole thing is gonna be when it's done. Suffice to say, the length is gonna be pretty intimidating,… Continue reading Skip to the Good Bit

A Slightly Atypical Charlottesville Post

TL;DR The Neo-Nazists and white supremacists have been around for a long time, the Trump rhetoric has only made them more confident, and I feel a little unwelcome in the country of my birth. All the things that happened in Charlottesville were pretty shocking to a lot of people. All of a sudden, white nationalists… Continue reading A Slightly Atypical Charlottesville Post

More of the Same

So, I like to re-watch things. Actually, I love to rewatch things. This is something that usually sort of shocks people when I share it because, while some people like to rewatch things, I take to another level. To put it bluntly, I honestly have no idea how many times I've seen entire series like Parks &… Continue reading More of the Same

Searching for the Strategy?

If you're like me, seeing and hearing about everything going on with North Korea is pretty unsettling. However, some pretty important people aren't very worried at all. Which is kind of confusing because I never know what to think when I look to the Trump administration for strategy updates. One day, the CIA director says… Continue reading Searching for the Strategy?

Oh, the Endless Distractions

Writing is not the easiest thing in the world by any means. I'm sure I'm not the only person who gets a little anxious just thinking about sitting down and devoting time to it, which is probably why my personal work usually takes a while. And I'm probably not the only person who finds it… Continue reading Oh, the Endless Distractions

Finding my Way

So, I guess in an effort to stick to my guns in a previous post about criticism and feedback, I wanted to share a short excerpt (roughly six pages in Word/2,000 words) from the beginning of the novel I'm currently working on. I haven't shared it without people I don't know personally in quite some… Continue reading Finding my Way
