Friday Publishing-Day: Brief Update

Welp, I definitely forgot today was Friday, so I will be brief.

This week has felt very full, but I think I’ve accomplished very little publishing-wise. Stress at work is the main cause of that.

Fortunately, my book design is under way. Continue reading Friday Publishing-Day: Brief Update

Novel Manuscript Submitted… Now What?

I finally did it. I completed my revisions of The Warden of Everfeld: Memento and sent it off to my book designer for formatting.

I feel… anxious? I don’t know. I’m glad to have it done, and on deadline, but suddenly the reality of publishing this thing is washing over me.

I think I’ll settle in once my book designer sends back a sample of what he’s thinking for the interior design. Until then, I’d like to remain productive. Continue reading Novel Manuscript Submitted… Now What?

Misplaced Missive #173 – My Heart

I gave you my heart,
Battered and used,
To do with as you choose.

Where it used to reside,
Now lies empty.
Waiting to be ready,
For the next heart to grow.
This was the one thing you taught me;
One thing I did not know:
Nothing stays hollow forever,
And the worst always gets better. Continue reading Misplaced Missive #173 – My Heart

Song Share & Progress Update

Why hello there, lovely reader. Once again, I am reaching out to relay to you my writing, and life, status, paying for this attention with a song you will hopefully adore. If you do, be sure to check out the Hex Cougar remix, too.

Deep Meaningful Procrastination!

My YouTube list of delaying productivity.

I wanted to write an action update. But then I fell into a YouTube black hole for all of the hours and decided to type this out instead. Because reasons.

Jubilee

There’s an amazing amount to be learned from hearing both sides of an argument, when both are willing to be open and honest and real. Continue reading Deep Meaningful Procrastination!

Quick Rip: Bad Wolves’ Tribute to Dolores O’Riordan

I might be late to the party on this one, since the video was published on YouTube over a month ago. However, I just heard this cover of The Cranberries’ classic on the radio, and felt compelled to share it. Watching Bad Wolves’ powerful video only heightened this need. Continue reading Quick Rip: Bad Wolves’ Tribute to Dolores O’Riordan

Misplaced Missive # 164 – What Price?

What price would you pay to change everything you are?
Transform all the parts that are lackluster…

This version of me;
This perversion of who I wanted to be…
Is so lacking,
But possesses so very much.
None of it needed.
So Take it all,
Break me, Make me,
Someone new. Continue reading Misplaced Missive # 164 – What Price?
