Here Comes Santa Claus!!!!

The holiday season is before us (yay!) and so I'm going to have a lot more time to post on here! Plus, I have the story I wrote for NaNoWriMo (granted, didn't finish, but I still got a lot accomplished) that I'll be editing and uploading here!

Stay tuned for more updates, everybody!!!




NaNoWriMo Update #1

Whew, NaNoWriMo has officially started. And I've realized that at this point in my writing career, I am not prepared to do commission based work. Thirty days to complete an entire novel is just not my thing, officially, but this is definitely helping me get some of my annoying writing idiosyncrasies out of the way. I have such issues with self-editing, which in a non-time crunch sort of situation would be fine. But I've only got 29 days now to complete the 50,000 word requirement to win.


Well, anyway, here's my NaNoWriMo page: http://www.nanowrimo.org/eng/user/511721. Feel free to add me as your writing buddy!

Much luck to everyone else that's doing this craziness with me!!!


NaNoWriMo, here I come.

Welcome back, kiddies!

I know it has ben a while, but as you'll read in the post on We Can All Use a Little More Juju, technology has been all sorts of wonky on me. Plus, this training (which will be done 10/30!! squee!!!) has just drained me, so even if my computer connection wasn't being stupid, I'm not sure if I would have posted much, anyway.

But we're not going to focus on that. Oh, no, today, we look to the future!

If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I've signed up for this year's NaNoWriMo. I did this a couple of years ago, but I got burned out after about a week. Or I was dealing with some pretty big personal issues. I can't really remember, and it's not that important in the grand scheme of things. Either way, I'm doing NaNoWriMo, which officially starts this Saturday at midnight.

I'm going to try to keep up here and I'm going to post my NaNo profile on here at a later date. There's not anything on there right now, so that's why I'm not posting it today. :)

Anyway, wish me luck! And if you're participating this year, let me know, and I'll buddy you!!




I think Youtube is out to get me in some sinister way. Anyway, after about six hours of waiting for it to publish, my podcast for today is ready!

I'm finally starting to get the hang of all of this podcasting thing, so in the near future, you may actually get video! I just have to get the balls to do it. :)

Enjoy, friends!


Le sigh .....

Okay, so my lovely little friend known as my brain has been working overtime for the past couple of weeks, which is why I haven't posted the promised, "There's Danger Everywhere, Part One." Plus, life has been pure craziness, but that's a whole other issue right there.

But I digress. My main issue is that my characters commandeered my story. I had it all ready, and the little bastards just wouldn't work for me. My mom actually caught me arguing with myself in my bedroom, and I'm pretty sure she was considering placing me in some sort of mental hospital. Luckily, she somewhat understands my artistic insanity. So I had to start over from scratch. I was able to sneak the original opening in, but after that? Yeah, brand new material that is nothing like it was two weeks ago.

So, anyway, I'm polishing the story up, and it should be ready to post here pretty soon. In the meantime, I'll keep you entertained with some podcasts I've been working on. Tune in tomorrow!


And I come through with the threat .... :)

Well, as much as I hate to do this, I'm posting one of my sketches of Ren. I have a couple more I am working on, but they are nowhere near ready to be on public display. It would be cruel.

So without further ado, Ren Winter:

She's honestly not supposed to be this tan, but the scanner was being poopy.


There's Danger Everywhere (TBA)

I think I've said this before, but I have been very stingy when it comes to presenting my work, mainly out of fear of rejection. But, in order to get "discovered" or whatever, I can't really hide under a rock and hope that someone is just going to find me. 

So, in my first ever foray, I'm going to be posting an entire story, the introduction to my series, "The Legion." You guys have seen and read (hopefully) the excerpt I posted a little while ago in a few days. I have to rework some things this weekend, and on Wednesday, you'll get to read part one (it's separated into two parts).

In other news, I am going to be finishing up some of my artwork tonight, so tomorrow, you'll get to see two of my characters, the main protagonist, Ren, and one of her compatriots, Anais Pajot, who you will be meeting shortly. I'm horrible at drawing men, so it might be a while before you get a glimpse of Mason, so if any of you have any talents in that area, please contact me. It won't be paid work, of course, because I am poor. :)

Oh, and the podcast. I'm very irritated with YouTube right now. I may just have to record another podcast, but I'm working with their helper people to figure out why it won't post my video/podcast thingy. I'll keep you posted on that, or else I may just do a write up and do a podcast about something else. 

So, be sure to check in later on! 

Many thanks to all my readers!
