It's that time! November, already. I was traveling for the past week, so am playing NaNoWriMo catch-up. NaNoWriMo's new site is interesting, looks like it's been redesigned for longer term, out-of-season writing progress. Though I seem to have lost all my buddies/contacts on it, so toss me a friend request if you're participating in NaNoWriMo … Continue reading NaNoWriMo: One More Time For All the Glory!
My environment recently got changed so I can (with great hope!) manage less interruptions while writing/editing/proofing/etc. While my computer always had a spot, I never had a space specifically for writing. I made do with whatever: the extra table, the rickety chair, the couch, etc. During a short stint in California, I never got proper … Continue reading omg, an update?
One word at a time. Such is how a writer's quest for perfection exhausts imagination. The craft of writing is subject to overthinking. Analysis of prose can be useful, yet when it becomes the dominant priority, the heart of a story perishes. With loss of heart follows loss of passion. Excessive editing, obsession with grammar … Continue reading Perfection
I've never known normal. The life I've been granted is a strange existence. The bizarre is my ordinary. Eccentricity feeds my craft, not for sensationalism, but because it is my natural state of being. The odd and unusual is where the fantastic resides. Investigations into absurdities of life serve a purpose for the development of … Continue reading phantasmagoria
I find my soul on the road. Even when things don't go according to plan... especially then. I'm currently writing this from a luxury hotel bar. The night before was spent in a Super 8. Neither of these were planned, and both provide me with outlooks that influence my books. Whenever I take a road … Continue reading Serendipitous Fleeting Existence
I know I've been quiet, especially since I left Twitter (unless you're on my mailing list and then you would've gotten that short horror story in Jan~ check your inbox if you didn't see it!). Well, that's going to change soon enough. Starting on April 5, I will be returning to blog posting here. Maybe … Continue reading And From The Silence…
Quick update time: last few months have been time-consuming with lots of demanding life things that don't have to do with writing (family, job, etc.). This coming week, I'll be having minor surgery that'll keep me on bed-rest for about 3 weeks depending on healing. Luckily, it's NaNoWriMo so that works out! I'm spending time … Continue reading Autumn Update
During the start of this month, I spent days visiting the ICU of a hospital. My mother-in-law was there after a surgery. It was about a week of time, but being in a hospital made it feel much longer. The surreal aspect of watching real people living through incredibly real moments of life and death … Continue reading Summer Update

Sometime in the coming year, my readers will be able to enjoy: 👑 The Descent Files: HANA A complete novella series, set in … Continue reading What’s Coming in 2018 (+Cover Reveal!)
