failed nanowrimo

I didn’t even start this year. I was having some emotional crisis and thinking about things. To be honest, online marketing has gotten extremely stupid. Social media is a rope with which to hang yourself. Everyone loved HP, then JKR opened her mouth on social media and now it’s ruined forever. I think I’d rather…

Day 411 of the Cursed Year 2020, I have no grandmothers left. I have not finished editing Shaxia. Nor have I done a bunch of stuff I need to do for Moirae Pubs. I’ve lacked the motivation, mostly. On the bright side, I did participate in and win NANOWRIMO. I have been working on a…

I almost killed him

ALMOST. but decided to give him some character development instead. :D In other news, I’ve finished writing Shaxia, book 4 of the Natan Fleet Show. I’ve just got to edit out 10k words and then it will be done. Thus ends the High Council arc of the series. Okay so… Here’s a thing. Given the…

no science, but im still alive

I haven’t caught the ‘Rona yet, hopefully I won’t. I’ve been working from home for the last few months, although I did go out of the country at the end of Feb. I finally got to scratch something off my bucket list, which was awesome. Went to Ireland. It was beautiful. Except for the hurricane.…

All I’ve Got Left

I’ve been doing a lot of stuff lately. Mostly around my house, trying to catch up with chores since being overwhelmed with the day job for the last month+… Went to Hama-con 10, did some exploration into FB market place and got some cool stuff. Got the back yard cut finally, but its going to…

Post Hama-con Updates

I haven’t written in months. I’m genuinely sorry for that, but things have gotten so busy at my day job lately, then bad luck strikes at home; my AC died for the last month and then Hama-con and getting Totality 2 out. My yard has gotten over knee-height, so I’m going to have to find…

Living with Depression

I do my best, but sometimes it gets to be a lot and I think that maybe I wouldn’t move if a bus were coming at me. Lately has been one of those times. (I don’t feel like going into that right now, though. Go read My Best Friend is Dying and Grief if you…

In response to J. D. Huffman

J. D. Huffman wrote a thought-provoking piece on self-promotion here. I’d like to add to it. I too hate self-promotion. It’s a drag. Its time consuming. It’s terrifying! I’ve mentioned before that I have anxiety and depression. I don’t like speaking in public; mostly in situations where I’ve got to draw attention to myself and…

what kinda crap….

I’m working on short story collections for NFS. I need covers tho. I’ve put together a little over 20k words for an NFS 3.5 story. Grabbed the first scene from Shaxia, since I wrote a different scene to start that off.  Meanwhile, I’ve been working on getting the print version of Touched by Death done.…

good NEWS everybody!

I’m trying something new. Maybe it will keep me on track for producing content on a more regular basis? At Imaginarium this year, I went to a couple panels talking about marketing strategies. Really marketing boils down to just being consistent with content. Ugh. I’m the queen of inconsistency. Anyway, here’s my idea. I’m going…
