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.
Last we spoke, I discussed goodreads reading goals, hunting for the perfect editor and protagonist bios. Needless to type, I have failed at accomplishing quite a few of these. Shall we start with the lackluster and then mosey toward the better news? Continue reading Song Share & Progress Update
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.
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!
‘Who Will Survive And What Will Be Left Of Them’
This is the second time a OTH quote got me to thinking and I once again wished to share it with you:
Whitey to Lucas:
‘When my wife died, things got pretty dark there for a while. Nobody could talk to me. And then, one of my former players, the kid may be the worst player I ever coached, waded into that darkness and pulled me to safety. That kid’s name was Keith Scott. He said, “Coach, I… I know you want some answers, but what is the right answer? Because there is no answer. There’s just life. Just life.” Lucas, be the man that Keith taught you to be. Anything less would make this a much greater tragedy than it already is.’ Continue reading TV Quote Ponderings – One Tree Hill 3×17
Milestones are sort of weird. They can be easy to lose track of until you’re sitting right on top of them. I stopped myself from doing one of these stats update posts until we had hit a real milestone.
Well, I stopped paying attention, and here we are well over 20,000 Views and 13,000 visitors all-time. Sweet!
Since we’re through the first quarter of 2018, I wanted to have a look at some other recent numbers. Continue reading Numberbrag: 20,000 Views Under the Web
AKA Jessie doesn’t know how to be an adult and interact with other humans who seek to aid her in her quest for manuscript editing.
Sooooo yeah. Another blog style entry from me this week at Stevie’s encouragement. He’s been… moderately helpful in this whole process, but really, I think I rather enjoy being freaked out; after all, if I didn’t love it, why would I do it so very, terribly often?!? Continue reading Panic! At the Desktop: An Anxiety Ridden Day
Why hello there, reader! It’s been a bit since I held myself accountable and told you what I’m up to, thus: this.
To start, a bit of background music to enjoy whilst you read:
That’s better, now isn’t it? I think so too. And hey, if you stumble upon some extra time later and are Johnny Cash fans, check out Forever Words, both an album and a book devoted to the legend’s unpublished writing. Continue reading Song Share And Action Update!
The last couple of weeks have not been my best, in life in general.
I’ve been staying up too late, sleeping in too much, not grinding enough towards my publishing goals, and generally wallowing in a thin but ever-present veil of anxiety and stress. It’s been coming from all sides.
Too real? Sorry. Allow me to explain. Continue reading Changing My Writing Mindset… to A Publishing Mindset
Apologies for the delayed posting. As I mentioned last week, I was out of town for a work conference for three days this week.
I had a great time and enjoyed meeting a lot of my colleagues, but it was a bit of a whirlwind week. Continue reading Friday Write-Day: What a Week
S 4:E02 Synopsis: ‘Worried about her daughter’s safety, single mom Marie signs up for a cutting-edge device that monitors the girl’s whereabouts – and much more.
Ostensibly, this is a story about an overprotective parent suffering the natural consequences of that parenting style taken to its logical extreme. The triggers are twofold; first comes the difficult birth and stillborn scare, second is single mom Marie losing young Sara, her shiny new munchkin, whilst at the playground. The kid is found fast, but it’s too late: the fear has taken hold and Marie believes, ardently, that she needs help. Continue reading Is Arkangel a Replacement God for the Next Generation of Parents?
I click on pretty much any content that has ‘wolf’ in the title. This time it worked well in my favor.
Right. Soo this is my attempt at a Stevie-like update. Please don’t expect this to become a regular occurrence as it feels awkward as all hell to be jotting life down this way, but here goes: Continue reading Song Share and Intention Update!
