The Book Blogger Confessions

January 4, 2015

Hello, fair readers! We’re in a whole new year now! That would be amazing, except for the fact that it’s been happening for literally billions of years and so it’s actually pretty mundane! BUT that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun with it–I believe in having fun with everything, even the most ordinary of occurrences. […]

In Which I Sing “Wrecking Ball” Because You Guys Are Evil

November 20, 2014

Six months and 350+ Twitter followers ago, I promised you guys I’d sing a song of your choosing. While it’s been so long most of you have probably forgotten, I have finally performed the song you guys voted for–that song being Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball”. I really have no clever lead-in to this, so here you […]

The Internet Has Spoken

May 25, 2014

Results are in!  I gave you guys two weeks to decide my embarrassing internet fate, and you voted.  Boy, did you ever vote. So apparently I’m singing “Wrecking Ball” by Miley Cyrus.  Because you guys are EVIL. I need to dig out my recording equipment and dust off my guitar, but I’ll be getting the […]

It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time

May 9, 2014

So apparently, Past Eve thought it would be a good idea to announce on Twitter that, when I reached 2,000 followers, I would record myself singing a song and post it online. Then I took it a step further–I decided I’d let my 2,000th follower decide what I sing. Or rather, I’d let that person pick […]

Why Writing Hurts, But NOT Writing Hurts More

May 8, 2014

You see it sometimes—a little kid who wants to do something the big kids do.  They have an older brother or sister who rides their bike fast and far, over ramps and down hills. The little one wants to do it, too.  But they have training wheels and their parents won’t let them, and if […]

If yes, then congratulations—you’re a time lord or something and you don’t need to worry about the stuff the rest of us bound to a […]

Why Storium Wins the Internet (And Possibly Life)

April 8, 2014

I’m a professional writer. I have been for about eight years now. I write a lot of nonfiction for clients, but as of now, I have four completed first drafts, dozens of short stories, and so many half-finished book drafts I have essentially lost count. I’ve ghostwritten books for clients and edited at least fifteen […]

90 Day Writing Challenge – Week Two Summary

April 4, 2014

OK, so this week was more productive than last week, at least. I finished the formatting work on the book that was wearing on me—details like that completely derail me (I know it’s a bad habit, but hey, it’s what happens). I started with two big new clients this week, so writing was minimal, but […]
