We Found Inspiration in a Weird Place

I had a dream a giant flaming meteor had hurtled into earth and like half the buildings in New York were going down and we were all like "yep, that's 2020". Fun fact (that may or may not come in useful when writing): you can hear a car knocking over a street lamp from 1.5 … Continue reading We Found Inspiration in a Weird Place

Sorry, We’re Broke (do writers have to travel?)

So...you may have seen that blog circulating around with a title saying that if you want to be a fantasy writer you have to travel. Ahem. *climbs onto platform and gets notes into order* First off, I want to say that the title is deceptive, as the author never actually says those words in the … Continue reading Sorry, We’re Broke (do writers have to travel?)

Goodbye August HULLO SEPTEMBER

Not, gonna lie, I kinda don't want to see August go. Summer is ending??? What??? We barely got any of it!!!

Writing Struggles with J.R.R Tolkien

I was organizing my bookshelf last Saturday afternoon, as one does on Saturday afternoons. I picked up a book (as one does when organizing a bookshelf, completely abandoning the project originally started.) It was Humphrey Carpenter's Tolkien, a lovely '77 edition. Started reading it and found some quotes that are just GOLD and thought we … Continue reading Writing Struggles with J.R.R Tolkien

Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 22

(I must issue my apologies for not posting last Saturday. My brain was going to implode, and I had nothing to say but scream in you faces gibberish such as, "AFHGJLLK" So, I didn't. If you've got nothing nice to say, don't say nothing at all.) Have'd some adventure recently. Kayaking, more drive-ins ("Where have … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 22
