Week Two Check-in!

Hi to any and all that are reading this. I want to thank you for following along with me into a second week of my writing goals. Writing can be a difficult endeavor, one that can seem pretty lonely when it's just you and a blank, white page. That's partially why I decided to make…

Week One Check-in!

Hello to anyone who happens to be reading this. As you may or not know, I made some goals last week to help hold me accountable in my writing endeavors. The biggest goal I set was to write five thousand new words each week. Now I know this isn't a large number of words for…

2021 Goals

Let's be honest... 2020 was a mess. It was more than a mess, it was mind altering nightmare of a year. And to be honest, it was hard to not let it effect me on a mental level. I tried to stay positive and use the time locked in the house to my advantage, hoping…

It has been a while since I have posted to the blog, and partly it was due to trying to finish a book that I have been writing. I say partly because I certainly cannot say entirely. I am a victim to time, as are all of my fellow humans. We are only given so…

Speculative Basement:

Apologies for not having an edition of Speculative Basement last week, but I was a bit busy. I was in that hazy faze in which nothing but that one thing you are focusing on can get through to you. And for me that one thing was getting married! Laura and I tied the knot in a small,…
