May Day, Mayday!

So yeah, you may notice this is going up late. Apologies, it's been...a time. Here's the state of the Rion: As you probably know (and if not, WELL LET ME TELL YOU) I released my debut novel on the 25th of April. I'm not an overnight sensation, but I wasn't really expecting to be. It's … Continue reading May Day, Mayday!

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 … Continue reading OH MY GOD WHAT DO I THINK I’M DOING

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." This was in … Continue reading Mirror Into the Past

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. … Continue reading Finding a Method for My Madness

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 … Continue reading Until the Very End, Always

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 … Continue reading Attack of the 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. … Continue reading Personal Post Time: Brain Fights

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 … Continue reading Discouragement, Frustration, Irritation
