Flash Fiction Friday – My Name is TAI

I was talking with my boyfriend yesterday about tropes for artificial intelligences in fiction, and thought to myself that it would be interesting to see an AI character that wanted to make the world better for humans rather than being willing to sacrifice humans for the sake of humanity (if that makes sense). This scene didn’t turn out to be quite that, Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – My Name is TAI

Adventboost 2017 – Day 24 – Killer of Enemies by Joseph Bruchac

Adventboost 2017 – Day 23 – Serafina’s Flame by J.C. Hart

Last year, I boosted the webseries Compersion!

I heard about it quite a while back, but it wasn’t out yet them so it’s just been sitting in my bookmarks. As Continue reading Adventboost 2017 – Day 22 – 195 Lewis

Flash Fiction Friday – Next Year’s Beads

Since it is the holiday season, I’ve been thinking a lot about creating holidays for fictional worlds. The other day I had an idea for a tradition I may use some day in a book, so I wrote this little piece below: The ribbons are slippery between my fingers, and the house is quiet except for the gentle ringing of Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Next Year’s Beads

Adventboost 2017 – Day 19 – The Letter by Yangyang Mobile

Lately, I’ve been getting kind of into watching visual novels. Yes, that’s right, I didn’t say playing visual novels, I said watching. That is, watching some streamer I like play one. I don’t know if I’d actually enjoy playing one myself, just because I’m neither much of a gamer or particularly patient and visual novels usually requires a lot of hours put Continue reading Adventboost 2017 – Day 19 – The Letter by Yangyang Mobile

Tonight I turned in my second to last term paper. The last one is already a week late (aaaah!) but should be finished tomorrow (yaaaay!). Which means that on Wednesday, I can finally shift my focus back to writing (have really only done Adventboost in the last week or two and nothing else), with the following goals: Spend 10h on Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Almost over the hurdle

Adventboost 2017 – Day 16 & 17 – Gays of Our Lives by Kris Ripper & Knit One Girl Two by Shira Glassman

Last night I went to a lovely julbord with some very good friends of mine. I had a lovely time, and the food was absolutely delicious. Afterward, the boyfriend and I spent some time watching some streamers we like play a visual novel game called The Letter and somehow blanked entirely on the fact that time was passing and I had a blog to Continue reading Adventboost 2017 – Day 16 & 17 – Gays of Our Lives by Kris Ripper & Knit One Girl Two by Shira Glassman
