Joyful & Veerful

I veered off track from the prewriting and update buttons I made with WordSwag on Monday because I needed to chase down some big ideas that crept up on me: Rewriting an Idea, where I plan how to focus on Emergence No. 7 by finishing a first draft; then rewriting for accessibility; Zeros & Ones, the fourteenth … Read moreJoyful & Veerful

Introducing Update Buttons!

I made three updates today—two on Wattpad, and one in my WordPress blogosphere—but more importantly, I also designed several buttons for realizing these ideas; and what a fun incentive, first repurposing my PicsArt gallery into illustrations, then making those pictures a reality! I know, I know, buttons have been on the Internet since the 90s, … Read moreIntroducing Update Buttons!

3 x 3 in 8 vs. 8

After we got home from seven hours of swimming, barbecue, and familial love, I felt exhausted, so I fell asleep, then woke up cramped out of my mind.

Today’s Blog & Wattpad Releases

Here’s what I came up with: Wyvia I’m updating my wedding blog daily right now, … Read moreToday’s Blog & Wattpad Releases

Blogosphere Improvements

Quick note of goals I’d like to chunk out and accomplish in coming months… June Aggressively building content. I’m a little behind on these ideals, but that’s fine, since I’ve still been churning 2K-3K words a day; I just need to find a way to stabilize that word count into: 1 blog post a day, … Read moreBlogosphere Improvements

3×3 Blogosphere Formula

Lately I’ve tried to give my intuition more agency. While slices of our society argue gut reactions are more of a primal response,—and therefore, inferior to the rationale of an intellectual, mammalian-brain response—lately I’ve questioned the validity of this point of view; I’m uncertain if evolution intended for us to abandon our reptilian, unconscious responses … Read more3×3 Blogosphere Formula
