Voice Work pt 1 – The Beginning

So through M.C.A. Hogarth's Patreon, I'm involved with the Discord channel dedicated to her and her works--which allows me contact not only with her, but an immense group of amazing friends and talents who I adore more than I can ever explain. As I sat this weekend and realized that I'd run out of blog … Continue reading Voice Work pt 1 – The Beginning

Fifty Shades of Love (no seriously)

(BEAR WITH ME ON THE TITLE. I PROMISE IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH WHAT IT'S PARODYING. ...ACTUALLY IT'S THE EXACT OPPOSITE. PLEASE FORGIVE ME) Hah. Remember when I said I was going to get back into this? Yeahhhhhhhh I did really well with that. But hey! I'm trying? Points for effort? I feel like … Continue reading Fifty Shades of Love (no seriously)

Mighty and Powerful Gods

I wasn't going to write this right away, but I figure I may as well do it while some piece of it all is still timely and all. So you've all heard me say a thousand times that I think character development is important. On top of this, I think that having a balanced character … Continue reading Mighty and Powerful Gods

Alternate Storytelling: Video Games

If you follow me on Twitter, you probably saw me retweet this excellent blog post from Chuck Wendig looking at the game Firewatch and how it tells a story, and what we can learn from its methods. I've seen a lot of mixed reviews on Firewatch, and I can see the truth in both sides. … Continue reading Alternate Storytelling: Video Games

Non-Traditional Storytelling

I love stories. Not just books (though I love them as well) but stories told in any fashion. Movies, TV shows, books, video games even. Any way that a story can be told, I'm a big fan--and I know that there's many different ways to tell a story. I'm always on the lookout for new … Continue reading Non-Traditional Storytelling

Age of the Brick-and-Mortar Bookstore

I've made it fairly clear in the past (I believe) that I stand firmly on the fence in regards to paper books (or dead tree books, as my family is wont to call them) versus e-books. I love my Nook and my Kindle, but I also still will go out of my way to buy … Continue reading Age of the Brick-and-Mortar Bookstore

Curse of the Third Book

(Man, that sounds like an awesome short story or something. Anyway.) I seem to have a curse laid upon me when it comes to obtaining books. I seem to have brought it upon myself, way back in high school, unknowingly. It began with an author I have come to love dearly, and am glad of … Continue reading Curse of the Third Book

Why I Need Feminism…or something. (Am I Doing This Right?)

I'll be honest. I'm tired of seeing those words in my title. I completely understand that gender inequality is rampant and that there are still major reasons that this phrase is traveling around the Internet. None of that is the issue. What I'm really tired of are the militant positions on either side, dealing in … Continue reading Why I Need Feminism…or something. (Am I Doing This Right?)

Long Time No See / MFA Programs

Hey there everyone! I know it's been a while since I posted last, and I apologize for that. (Actually as I look back, it's less time than I thought. But it's still more time than is really permissible.) I still owe a good friend a review for her book that I read, and I intend … Continue reading Long Time No See / MFA Programs
