Not to say that my writing is bad - no, I'm quite impressed sometimes when I reread something I've written, like damn, coulda read that in a real book.

I'm sure you are probably well familiar with novels, novellas, and short stories, but I wanted to write a post elaborating and expanding on these story types. In school, I don't think this was ever separated out or clearly defined, so wanted to share what I've come to understand about writing classifications. Keep in mind, … Continue reading Story Classifications
I have spent... the past several hours tracking down, hacking into, and updating / deleting all of my old accounts and blogs across my teen haunts. Let me help you understand. That's 5 email addresses, with a dozen different possible passwords, across multiple platforms. I honestly don't know how I have so many email addresses, … Continue reading I Fell Down a Rabbit Hole
Today I want to talk about the importance of web presence, professionalism, and content, when it comes to being an author. I would also like to note, that this is all the view and opinion I have developed from research on the topic. It is by no means law, nor entirely comprehensive.
