The Escapades of Integrating Oneself into a New Church

Hello, folks, and welcome this Thursday's broadcast by yours truly. I think it's high time for another Awkward Adventure of an Abnormal American. Buckle up. We all recognize that I’m shy, nerdy, and hard to get to know. Apart from my awkward (and usually bizarre) social behavior, I state my lack of people-skills ten times …

Take a Look into Aeterna // a special sneak peek just for you

*stumbles in and promptly collapses into a pile of fidgeting limbs* Guys. I won NaNoWriMo. And in the process, ended up disappearing from life. 'Nuff said. I truly believed the end of November would find me bowing and scraping to the masses, apologizing for only completing about 5,000 words. Instead, you find me beaming and …

A Brief Interlude in Your Regularly Scheduled Program

Yo. NaNoWriMo ends tomorrow, and I'm currently busting my brains over getting this thing DONE. As such, I find it necessary to reschedule your Thursday dose of sarcasm so that I can focus all my creative brainpower on completing my 50,000 words. I'm... not AT ALL behind... *guilt* Check back Monday for more coolness and …

Dear Beginning Writers: Ten Things You Probably Should Know

We're nearing the homestretch of NaNoWriMo, and if you're anything like me, you're already dying a slow and painful death at the hands of Creative Overexertion -- otherwise known as Mental Combustion. I don't understand these people who get their 50,000 words done within the first two weeks. You people are superhuman. Anyway, in keeping …

Unruly Characters and Awkward Interviews // meet the cast of Aeterna

I would like to formally recant a statement I made last week: "Boy, NaNoWriMo is easy!" [insert negative adjectives here] The biggest downfall with nano is that all my creative energy gets channeled into my book, with none left over for the blog. This results in stress, scrambling last minute to churn out something half-way …

Of Characters and Concept Designs: The Artistic World of Aeterna

The sun is bright, the wind is cold, and the strange Sarah creature has entered into Week #2 of NaNoWriMo. Surprisingly, all of her primary psychological functions are still mostly intact. Key Word = Mostly. Aeterna hit 80,000 words a couple days ago, and that in itself is enough to blow all my psychological functions …

Villains and Various Rants (updates, nanowrimo, and a tag)

Whazzup, folks? (Oh, that was bad. Let's try this again.) Pleasant morning, my wild herd of minions! (Except it's technically afternoon.) I hope you've noticed the snazzy new graphics around here. The beautiful logo and newsletter button are courtesy of Kendra Lynne, who deserves a massive huzzah for her efforts. Can we take a moment …

A Perfectly Incompatible Writing Plan

So... I did a thing. (Good going, Sarah, nice way to start off vague.) You know my book? That thing I've been writing -- and rewriting -- for more than three years now? That thing with emotional train-wrecks for main characters? And plot-twists that are even worse in the train-wrecky department? That thing I generally …
