Hi there, friendos and dears! What a month. What. A. Month. I feel like August was three months ago, and that summer was years ago. September was a really busy month, and didn’t really slow down from August. I went back to school, there was a bunch of changes at work, and my attempts to … Continue reading Month-End Roundup: September 2020
There’s a quote that you’ve probably heard, from an author (G. K. Chesterton) you might not have heard of: “Fairy tales do not tell children the dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children the dragons can be killed”. I think of this quote frequently, especially now that I work with … Continue reading Backpack Chronicles: A Birthday Special; Or, Dragons all the Way Down
Hey there, friendos and dears! The lovely Amber over at The Literary Phoenix (https://theliteraryphoenix.com/) recently participated in a fall-based tag, and invited everyone who wanted to participate to participate in it. So, while I wasn't tagged directly (please tag me in things, friends! You know I'll do them) I thought it sounded like a lot … Continue reading Finally Fall! Tag
Hey there, friendos and dears! We haven't...been here for a while, have we? I think it's been four months since my last Reviewsday. I don't know if any of you lovely folkx have missed it, but I sure have! I've been too busy to read, with moving, going back to school, life crashing down around … Continue reading Imager: Reviewsday, September 2020
I don’t know many artists, whether they be writers, visual artists or musicians, who only dabble in one form of art making. This seems to confuse people who aren’t artists, or who don’t know any well enough to know their hobbies. If this is you, then what are you doing with your life? You should … Continue reading Video Editing and Writing: Lessons Learned
Welcome to the Month End Round-Up for August 2020. I haven’t done one of these for a while, and it feels like I’m stretching my sea-legs.
However, there are certain things that I still believe. The more things change, the more things stay the same, as it were. One thing I will standby is my assertion that one shouldn’t download the first program you see off Google, as (especially now) those might be the most popular (and have the most money to spend to get their program at the top) but popular does not mean best (see: Twilight). I also asserted that lists, articles and forums are your friend. As someone who uses writing software daily, I thought that perhaps I should create an article. Consider this me being a friend to you, yours, and the internet, by sharing my experience with different writing apps, software, and tools.
Here ye, here ye, denizens of the Internet! Four score and...forget this. Hi everyone. Firstly, I need to apologize. I took an unplanned break and didn’t say anything at all. I just dropped off the face of the Earth. Well, not literally, but in social media terms, and that might as well be the same … Continue reading The State of the Blog
Hey there, friendos and dears. I don't think I've ever done a writing tag on this blog. I've done a couple over on my Tumblr, but nothing recently (please, tag me in things. I love tags! I'll do them! We'll have a grand old time!). So, when I saw that Nicole Evans over at Thoughts … Continue reading Never Have I Ever: Writing Edition
Ah, friendship. The mark of a healthy person in the eyes of true crime documentaries. The only thing with the power to heal heartbreak, death and needing more people on your soccer team—at the same time! Yes, friendship. In the eye of the popular consciousness, relationships (even marriages) come and go, and are expected to, … Continue reading Araki and Miura: On Writing Betrayal
