I haven't been writing much fiction lately, but my journal is getting a lot more love than normal. .

Writing in the train this morning. I love it when I get a good seat and can do something creative. It feels like a good portent for the rest of the day.

Even though it's hard work, I really love . The mental exercise of world- and character-building makes my brain feel all sparkly. Even if nobody ever reads what I write, it's worth it just for this feeling.

Today's update of is actually about three days' worth of writing. I'm about 6000 words "behind" right now, which is honestly just about par for the course.


The interview process that I thought was going so well has stalled out, and it's been a week or two since I've heard from them. And my current job still has all the problems that convinced me to start looking for a new job in the first place.

Honestly is my lifeline. I may have no idea what my work life will look like in 2020, but hey, at least my life is better than my protagonist's!


Hey Writing Friends, What online writing aids or review communities are ya'll into? I keep looking at getting back into Scribophile or 4TheWords (because they keep sending me emails) but I'm not sure. Are there better ones? Other ones that you like?

Just curious. Feel free to boost this to garner more answers.

I set up my :writefreely: writeFreely blog for this year's NaNoWriMo novel: 𝙋𝙖𝙘𝙞𝙛𝙞𝙘𝙖.

I've put up the introduction and first chapter, since they're already written. More will start going up on November 1st!


Okay, I've decided which book I'm working on for this year. It's one I've been working and re-working for years now, but I think this time is the one.

I've got a good feeling about this!

The blog should be up in a few hours, and I'll post some introductory stuff that I won't be counting in my word count, so I can get into the parts I've been meaning to completely rewrite when November 1st hits.

Just updated with a number of clean-ups and revisions and what not.

Also, true to form, immediately after saying I wouldn't be adding any new chapters or sections, I added a new chapter.


is now in "beta" status, meaning I don't plan on adding or removing any chapters or sections and all chapters and sections are first-drafted. Now it's all editing and revising and creating images and whatnot.

If you'd like to review any of my books DM me! I'd love to hear your thoughts!


Something I've been thinking about lately: building a community where connections are strong enough that we notice one each other's absences.


Another quiet announcement: has been updated, and now has a free sample version as well. On a more technical note, I've massively overhauled my publishing process so that it takes much less effort to get a new version to .


Just a quiet announcement that, after a long dormant period, I have pushed a new update to . I can neither confirm nor deny allegations that I'm working on Painless Git to avoid studying for midterms.
