#AdventBoost Day 3 – Rock and Riot by Chelsey Furedi

Another #Adventboost, another webcomic. I’ll be honest: there’s probably gonna be a lot of webcomics in this boost series. This has been such a weird year, I feel like most my media consumption has been webcomics and RPG streams. Not much book-reading, to be honest. Anyway! Today I want to tell you about Rock and Riot by Chelsey Furedi. Tripped over this Continue reading #AdventBoost Day 3 – Rock and Riot by Chelsey Furedi

#AdventBoost Day 2 – The Substitutes by Myisha Haynes

Hi guys, and welcome to day 2 of #Adventboost! Today I want to point you all in the direction of the awesome webcomic The Substitutes by Myisha Haynes. I tripped over this gem by accident recently, and it was one of those moments where I read a couple of pages and then was stuck and had to keep reading, only to discover Continue reading #AdventBoost Day 2 – The Substitutes by Myisha Haynes

#AdventBoost Day 1 – Capricious

Yesterday NaNoWriMo finished, so today I am doing what any sensible writer would do… rushing headlong into another project! Starting today, and up until Christmas Eve, I will be posting daily on the blog to signal boost a marginalized creative person (or a project by such a person). I call it… #Adventboost! A word of warning: this has been a Continue reading #AdventBoost Day 1 – Capricious

Twice Fortnightly – I am a Bachelor…

… of the arts! Well, technically I’m not one yet because I still need to do a thesis paper defense in January and then get some paperwork done. But I did finish my thesis paper last week on Wednesday. I am very pleased! I think it turned out all right, but mostly I’m just happy to be done. Even though I Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – I am a Bachelor…

Twice Fortnightly – Halfway Through NaNo

Okay, technically we’re not halfway through NaNo until tomorrow, but oh well. At the halfway mark, the official goal is 25k. I will not be there, but that’s okay: I wasn’t intending to be. I’ll be, instead, somewhere just shy of 19k as my current word count is 16666 (hehe) and I haven’t started writing for today yet. However, tomorrow Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Halfway Through NaNo

Flash Fiction Friday – Mansplaining

Today, I used Seventh Sanctum‘s writing challenge generator and this line caught my eye: “During the story, a character eats something that disagrees with them.”. I find the ambiguity of the word disagree amusing, and at first I thought of talking cookies, but then, with what’s going on right now in politics, it made me think of this instead: Mansplaining “Well, Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Mansplaining

Twice Fortnightly – Gonna be an odd week

We’re a week into NaNo, and so far so good. I’ve been reaching my own daily goals, which are lower than the official ones but I am intentionally keeping them low in the beginning of the month while I finish my thesis. Then I can sprint at the end of the month. This week, me and my boyfriend are staying Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Gonna be an odd week

Flash Fiction Friday – The Offering

I actually wrote this yeterday but I was having some net connectivity problems and couldn’t post it before bed. So here it is now! I did something a bit different with this flash fiction piece. My boyfriend suggested that instead of using one of my regular methods of prompt generation (like Dixit cards or random generators online) I should use Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Offering

Twice Fortnightly – Nearly NaNo

Just 40 minutes left before NaNoWriMo 2016 starts. As usual, I’m staying up til just past midnight to write my first 100 or so words. It’s tradition at this point! I’ve had a good week, productivity-wise. I’ve made good strides with my thesis and although it smarts a bit to see another month pass without having finished it, I feel Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Nearly NaNo

Flash Fiction Friday – Different, Familiar

Evenin’ guys! Check me out, I remembered to post this on Friday this week. Tonight, I went to the house warming party of my next door neighbor, who happen to have moved into the apartment of the parents of someone I was best friends with basically up until I hit my teens. So since I couldn’t think of anything else Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Different, Familiar
