This past Wednesday, on Sweden’s national day, I was at a market and I saw this older woman who just had the most amazing look. She looked like a steampunk witch and I wanted to compliment her outfit but I was honestly too intimidated. I found myself thinking, though, “gosh, I’d like to write a detective story about her”. The Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – A Thorny Twist
Why are these weeks so weird? I keep realizing it’s Sunday or Monday and I’ve simultaneously done a bunch things but also not all the things I wanted to but also that I have no idea how many hours I have been writing this week. I have NOT been keeping track! I have also not read through my upcoming Patreon Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – What is Even Happening?
You know, typing this blog post title has made be realize that the word dial is not spelled the way I expected it. The i-a sequence really doesn’t seem to jibe with the pronunciation. Aaaanyway, that is not what I am here to write about today. Not at all! It’s Monday, and on Mondays I sit down to tell you Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Dialing it Back a Bit
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
Woah, you guys, a fortnight without twice fortnightly? How did that happen? I really thought it was just one week. Life is a little coo-coo banana pants right now, but in mostly good ways. Just so, so busy! Still, I’m trucking along. What have I been up to, writing-wise? Well, I posted some backstory for a D&D character for Flash Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Back in Action!
So apparently I forgot all about my blog last week. Oops! It was a weird week. A surprise cold, and the realization I would have to miss my BA thesis deadline if I wanted to produce something I was at all happy with made it a weird week. I still have a cold, though it’s almost gone, and I’ve been Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Back to Work!
The last few days I have, much to my enjoyment, actually been checking things off of to-do lists. That’s always a lovely feeling. I’ve caught some sort of second wind with this university thing I’m working on and although it’s still slow-going, it’s at least going and with a bit more enthusiasm than before. Writing wise, it’s also been a Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Checkmarks!
Lately I seem to be making an extra effort when I write to express myself… prettily. I mean, I always want to write well, but I’m not always in that particular mood where I push myself a little extra, and go for a little extra flourish. I wouldn’t go so far as saying I’m in a purple prose mood, aesthetics clouding Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Psuedo-purple?
Yeah, that’s what this month has felt like a bit so far. It’s weird, because I know I can write large quantities in fairly limited time. Heck, I made 75k last NaNo! But this time… man. 10k as a goal and I’m still struggling. To be honest, I think I’m partially struggling because my goal is so low. A few hundred Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Oh right, Camp!
I’ve just returned from a rather lovely weekend at my parents’ summer house, where we celebrated Easter. I spent most of my time eating, napping, reading and watching people roleplay on YouTube. All in all, not bad! Hope you’ve had a lovely Easter too, celebrating or not. I discovered something cool this week, namely that dictation apps (voice-to-text) are really Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Talk to Me, Baby!
