Blog? What Blog?

Oh that’s right, this blog!   No, I haven’t dropped off the face of the earth. No, I haven’t stopped writing. Life just happened again, Advertisements

Moved, Blocked, Progressing

It just hit me today that I haven’t posted on here in the longest of all my platforms. There were reasons. Many of them. Moving, traveling, anxiety, therapy, first anxiety attack in 3 months, getting myself on track with everything. A lot of it comes down to something that I think a lot of creative…

Whelp, Its Been a Month

Which is way way longer than I ever like to go without posting. 2 weeks is my usual, and I like to keep it that way.

Short Story | Fire and Brimstone

She heard a crack as he entered the small clearing, a branch having given way beneath a boot, and his long jacket swept the ground, leaving just the slightest trail in the dirt behind him. She hadn’t been able to see him in the dark, but then again you could rarely see them clearly in…

Old gods Rising | Short Story

This story was originally created for my patrons over on Patreon, and I’ll really never be able to thank them enough.

Breaking News: Milestone Annihilated

Yesterday I posted an excerpt from the story that I wanted to start writing as part of a patron driven story, and I was very close to the milestone. Then my patrons blew me out of the water.   By 9AM we had passed the milestone I was aiming for and by the afternoon we…

My Patreon | New Goals

For those who do not know, I keep a Patreon page for my writing and videos related to books, writing, etc. This weekend I decided to make a smaller goal for myself, one that will unlock when I hit $50/month of patron support

Artists in Crisis

Its been a rough couple of weeks. Stanford rapist. Orlando shooting. If you live in Chicago like I do, you’ve also seen the surfacing of years long abuse allegations against a theater company that has now closed its doors.

Revamping What I Started

So here’s the thing: I haven’t kept up this blog the way I want to. That seems pretty obvious. I like doing the monthly outlook/recap post, but I had intended this for my stories and I keep feeling like I’m not allowed to post random “creative life” type stuff.   Whelp, that’s changing.
