(miles to go before I sleep)

For now, you can find all my writing things over at my Soulfire blog.

(Among other stuff like fandom related and personal posts. Sorry.)

I will start using this — as soon as my the life I live outside of the computers stops getting in the way.

While working an 8 hour job and taking care of my horses after that, I’ve also proofread over 90,000 words today.

Booya, bitches.

"If you are able to survive the bleak wastelands of grief, you learn you are capable of surviving anything. The broken become unbreakable. The shattered emerge unshakeable. The fragile forge ahead. But the vastness of the hollow left by each loss is never filled. The soul’s yearning for the beloved remains. And that is the price you pay for living."
Amanda Patterson


Time to start making dreams come true.

I really should start using this blog more.

If I intended this blog to be my one-day author blog, then I really should begin already now by expanding it to, if not daily, then at least weekly use.

I’m always wary of putting texts like this out there. In my mind, they constitute to rambles; words no one will ever care about. But the truth is, if I’m serious about building a long-term career as a writer, I need to stop caring so much about what everyone else thinks and start being serious—if not for anyone else’s, then for my own sake.

And, because I know that in the end, it will be worth it.

I’ve written over 13,000 words over the past 3 days. Yes, while I’ve been out doing things that some people might constitute to mean a ‘life’, including working today.

Tired enough to fall right through my pillow now.

That feeling you get while writing when you reach a small breakthrough for the story which gives you a needed and exciting push forward.
