OH MY GOD WHAT DO I THINK I’M DOING

UPDATE TO THE UPDATE: PRE-ORDER LINKS ARE NOW LIVE!!!!

This post has been a very…very…long time in coming. I’m writing it a bit in advance, and even now I find it hard to believe that I’m actually getting to a point where I can write this. It’s not TECHNICALLY official right now, as of the time that I’m writing this to you, but by the time you see this…it will be.

I’ve published my first novel.

Heart Attack Waiting to Happen

So I’m writing this at about ten until midnight on March 3rd, because I’m forced to stay up as I stare at my computer, terrified. I have my laptop set up next to my desktop, because I’ve just had one of the most terrifying things happen to me. One of the most terrifying things that can happen to an author.

My external hard drive appears to be crashing, corrupting, and taking my manuscripts with it.

Mirror Into the Past

I saw a sentiment on Twitter the other day, talking about a friend of mine. We have very different stories, but at our core there’s a lot we share in common. But the sentiment (from a friend of theirs) was this:

“She always looked so desperate and sad. Now they look happier.”

State of the Rion

Hey everyone.

This is really not a post I wanted to be writing today. But I think you all know by now that female-bodied, transmasculine, reliant on the ACA for healthcare, and a whole bunch of things that are in jeopardy now.

I’m writing this from my bed, because the only times I’ve been able to get up has been to go to the bathroom, and take yet another Xanax. This election has struck me to the bone and terrified me. I do no longer feel safe in my country.

So I’m going to be taking a break from this. From the blog, the videos… I can’t focus. I can’t think. And I don’t want to give you half-assed content.

Be strong, my friends. Take your moment to grieve and come back stronger. It’s all see can do.

And I’ll see you all there, ready to fight with you.

Finding a Method for My Madness

I’ve always liked the idea of a day planner, but I’ve never been very good at keeping one. Even when I was in high school and they gave you one every year to track your assignments, I did the bare minimum with it, and always wanted to do more and didn’t manage to do it. I had friends who tracked everything in their life through agendas and journals, and I was always jealous of their organized ability. And while this particular method has been floating around me for a while now, I never really looked into it. After all, journals, diaries, agendas…all of those never worked well for me.

But the bullet journal might just prove itself useful.

Until the Very End, Always

I don’t have any of the original posts or quotes that went with this, but this has been bouncing around my brain and my Facebook for a while now, and I CANNOT LET IT GO UNDEFENDED. I CAN’T.

So one of my friends on Facebook said (or shared someone who said, I can’t remember) that instead of focusing on “creepy Professor Sneep” and his “borderline obsession with another man’s wife” we should be remembering James Potter’s devotion to his son and family–replacing “Always” with “Until the very end,” which to my memory is what James says to Harry just before the final showdown with Voldy.

OKAY LET’S TALK ABOUT THIS BECAUSE YOU ALL KNOW WHY I’M IN ALL CAPS NOW.

Attack of the Pronouns

It doesn’t look like I’ve written about this yet, so hey! Why not.

I’ve been surfing through my Evernote, looking at all the various things I’ve made note of over the years. For the most part, many of these were notes for a previous blog idea I had, which never really came to the fruition I wanted. So whether or not this was a Bull Breaker idea, I don’t know. But it’s something I’d like to babble about for a bit anywho.

Ri’s favorite topic: pronouns.

Personal Post Time: Brain Fights

So I figure Fridays will become my more personal post day. Maybe that’s sharing a bit of writing I really like, maybe it’ll be something else. Today I need somewhere to rant, because stupid things are happening to friends of mine and I have very little patience for it.

SO HANG IN THERE WITH ME.

Discouragement, Frustration, Irritation

It’s been a trying past few…whiles.

The past few days in particular, I’ve been feeling very frustrated and disheartened about a lot of things in my life. I had a bunch of topics I was going to write about but none of them are coming to me. (One I can’t remember what I meant by my note, so that will take some thinking.) So in many ways, this is going to be a bit of a rant–but I’m also looking for some inspiration from y’all. So. Bear with me.

One Year Ago Today

There is a blessing and a curse when it comes to apps and programs like Timehop. I am often reminded, when it sends me back far enough, about times I had with people I no longer speak to…am not friends with anymore. It’s hard, seeing those names. Remembering that there were good times mixed with the bad, and missing those times.

But today isn’t a day like that. Today is a much happier memory day, and one that more directly ties into this here blog.

Today is the one-year anniversary of when I began my journey as a BookTuber.
