I’ve always admired Stevie’s ‘Creativity Sessions’ for their purity of endeavor; I don’t think about writing so much as I feel burdened by the drive to write or by the procrastination instead of writing. I’ve accepted this lack in my self – always more emotion than logic, always more flailing than finesse. In an effort to find some middle ground, I thought I’d craft one of these for myself and see how it feels, you know? So tell me how I do in this, my personal step-by-step process of character building:
Welp, my novel has officially been published. I must say, a full day after publication, I feel…
The preparation and waiting for publication were a bit stressful, but all the other parts were fun. Continue reading Friday Write-Day: The Pre-Order Recap

I’m not sure what the next step is now that I’m Published with a capital ‘P’, but I’m really excited to take it. For now, I’m just going to keep writing.
When I look into the mirror,
What do I see?
All the vice and all the need.
It’s a slow bleed
That feeds the hatred in me,
The evasion of pleas,
The casual cruelty of the free.
I call her demon in green,
Draped in red, white, and blue.

Their new EP, Temporary Things Taking Up Space, has achieved the same.

Holiday weeks are always a little wonky. We returned from our long weekend at the lake house on Monday evening, went to work on Tuesday, had Wednesday off, and work again Thursday and today.
Why we get Wednesday off rather than the nearest Monday or Friday is beyond me, but it makes the work week disjointed. Especially when half of the country is on extended vacations.
Anyway, the weirdness threw my writing schedule off a bit, too, but I think I did alright. Continue reading Friday Write-Day: Small Progress
