I’m back.

Hello my friends! It has been along time.

I’ve revamping this blog to hold myself accountable. Well, really I’m hoping you all will be commenting and asking for updates on certain things, but I’m not even sure people blog anymore.

I have a question for you: What are your thoughts on having an alias when publishing work? In todays political climate and social media pile-ons, I worry that somehow the art itself will be thrown to the side because of political biases people cling to. Is this a worry for any of you?
Perhaps you’re thinking, “Ew, what political mumbo jumbo does this no-name ascribe to?”

I guess that thought is natural. But also, who cares? Since it’s on my mind, perhaps I’ll test it by putting it out in the open. I think both the left and the right are arguing over who should control the decisions in your life. I believe that the decisions of you life should be, well, your decisions.

That’s enough of that. Let’s get to the writing!

Since I’ve been gone, I’ve written 59 000 words of my first novel. It’s still at a draft stage with a lot of work et to be done on it. I’ll post little sections now and then to mark my progress, but so far I’m happy. Well, by happy I mean frustrated, exhausted, self-loathing and stupid. Yeah, that sums it up.


But nevertheless, it’s going. All I can do is keep writing.

There is a great quote I heard the other day, it was at the end of the audiobook ‘grit’, so I won’t write it word for word. Basically, the author said writing is seeing how terrible you are every day, but going back daily to refine it.

I’m still a terrible writer, but i’m giving it my best. My best is most people worst, but hey, childhood trauma or something… No, I shouldn’t give myself excuses. I’m excited to share my work with you all soon.

I’m also excited to read more of your stuff and jump back into the world of blogging! It’s been ages!

Anyway, it’s good to be back.

  1. Personally, I use a pseudonym. I have several pseudonyms because there are certain things that seem better received from male vs female writers. But I know plenty of folks who use their legal name. There are pros and cons to both views.
