The word “orchestral” should have another definiton as an emotion.
Sometimes, I feel like an idiot. Like today. Like I didn’t realize until This Very Night that everything creative I have written that I liked included some kind of music going on in the background (or frontground). I remember my first playlist. (No, really! I do!) Winamp was my favorite music thing in the worldContinue reading “What’s Your Playlist?”
Mursprise mursprise. I certainly didn’t expect this. I’ve been “meh” about NaNoWriMo for a couple of years, largely due to hating what I’m writing when I write it. (Seriously, HARSH hatevibes all over my computer. My poor, poor computer.) However, the timing is right. I’m starting a rebuild of an old project and, well, whyContinue reading “I Guess It’s Official – I’m Doing NaNoWriMo”

TRIGGER WARNING: I’m talking a lot about the sexual violence in the story and in the show. I’m writing this after spending a lot of time thinkingContinue reading “TV’s Game of Thrones might be better than A Song Of Ice And Fire”
…because now that the computer is set up, I really have no excuse. Okay, so, I could come UP with excuses (like, “dammit I need my puppy”) but they’re just shields I would use to protect myself from the Grand Awfulness of Brain Puke. I will tell a story about that sometime. But now, it’sContinue reading “Diving into that writing thing again”
As part of my writing practice, I have a few stuffed… well, not ANIMALS. Let’s call them beings. I use them for varying purposes, but those purposes ALL relate to writing. (No, I’m serious. I totally use them for writing.) As an illustration, let me start with the first stuffie I started using for writingContinue reading “Introducing the writing stuffies”
