The Enigmas of an Introvert’s Notebook

Writers are an odd lot. Yes, I know, statement of the century. But seriously. We wander around graveyards with the express purpose of stealing dead people's names, space out of conversations to contemplate which innocent character we're going to murder next, and hurt ourselves on purpose so we can "know what it feels like". (At… Continue reading The Enigmas of an Introvert’s Notebook

Goodbye, Book

Alright, people, I have an announcement to make. We all (hopefully) know that I'm writing a book that hates me. Not only does it resist being written, it's extremely disobedient and rebellious, and my characters make tons of messes that I have to clean up. It's been a thorn in my side for two years… Continue reading Goodbye, Book

A Lunatic Writer’s Anniversary

Guys. Do you realize how special this week is? Two years ago, sometime this week, a life changing event occurred. While my brother was in the hospital having his appendix removed, and all the house was quiet, I went into our storage room.

That Time I Didn’t Think God Could Write a Book—Part 1

As promised, here is the post I was too lazy to finish last week, which is pretty much the story of my life. Anyway, today, I'm going to share something sensible for a change. Wait, you say, sensible? Do you even know how to do that? Between you and me, no. No I don't. We'll… Continue reading That Time I Didn’t Think God Could Write a Book—Part 1
