Sprucin’ it up: Feet or Fins

I went over my first novel, Feet or Fins, the other day and Jesus, did I let a bunch of stuff slide. Just using the editing tool in Word revealed so many errors. I was only planning on adding a chapter image I found in Canva. It was only a chapter heading, but I saw […]

Another Edit Complete

What originally started as a 6-ish thousand intro to my longest manuscript ever, has turned into a nine and a half thousand word prequel to the same manuscript. Every time I finish an edit I think to myself, good it’s almost done. But then I go back and edit it again and I’m like wtf? […]

To do lists

I’ve set goals in the past. Done things like post them to this blog as a form of accountability. I’ve usually achieve some but not others. In the last year I’ve pretty much been lazy about it. I’d list everything on piece of paper and then forget all about it. But I got the genius […]

Writing during the Quarantine

Time, time, time. Since March I have all the time in the day to write. For the most part I have spent my time equal parts writing, moaning about not writing, and wondering why my organic self cannot work like a machine. However it has not been a complete waste like I infer. These are […]
