But today is catch up day. I'll be escaping into my epic … Continue reading It’s a distraction, Kind of

I have black, white, cis, trans, female, male, bi, gay, brown, polyamorous, amazing friends. And we, as a country, failed them-us. We failed … Continue reading What the hell, America?
It is that time again. It is November. It is Nanowrimo (National Novel Writing Month) and I have been working on an Epic Fantasy called Whisperwood. The theory behind Nanowrimo, which I call "Ask Daddy, Mommy's Working" month, is that if you write 1667 words every day, you will reach 50,000 words by the end … Continue reading Hello again!
