The Voice of Procrastination

Today (and on other Saturdays) I update American Catseye and Forfeit Island, two of my shorter pieces. And I haven’t gotten around to completing those writing tasks yet. I’ve had Saturdays where I add to both projects in under 500 words. So I’m not sure why I procrastinate them. Maybe it has to do with the fact it’s a … Read moreThe Voice of Procrastination

Interview with Myself

One of the ways I like to free write myself towards answers is the self-inflicted interview—probing thoughts beneath the surface by directing my curiosity inward, rather than impose a sense of wonder solely on the external world. I haven’t done a self-inflicted interview in some time. Let’s see where it goes. Every conversation needs a … Read moreInterview with Myself

August Projects

Lately I’ve been editing more, considering the accessibility of my writing, trying to simplify. This is why I haven’t posted updates about new content every day, as I did before. I may switch to just documenting my updates weekly; that’ll be much more manageable, and give me space to consistently reflect on successes and failures … Read moreAugust Projects

Outlines for Writing in a Childhood Universe; & Creating a Universe Unto My Own

Today I took a day off from—well, writing anything but this post—in light of the other exciting other facets of the day: It’s Saturday, My double-downed one-week challenges at Wyvia ended yesterday, and I’m still riding the “I’m awesome, I made a thing, I never have to make a thing again” wave, We couldn’t get … Read moreOutlines for Writing in a Childhood Universe; & Creating a Universe Unto My Own

Today’s Blog & Wattpad Releases

Today I challenged myself to update as many of my online portals as possible, without cutting out the prewriting phase of any project. It was a fun workday challenge, and it took me above-and-beyond my 3K word count daily goal. Here’s what I came up with: Wyvia I’m updating my wedding blog daily right now, … Read moreToday’s Blog & Wattpad Releases

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

Formulaic Writing

I use formulas for my writing. Once I find a healthy formula, I stretch it around, changing a variable here; doubling a variable there. Think of it like wrapping your hands in tight gloves, then wriggling your fingers—looking for the tension in the fabric. This is what my brain likes to do. While this is … Read moreFormulaic Writing

I 🖤 Brains

Braaaaaaains. Seriously, though. Love ’em. I think about what kinds of synapses are firing in the brains of other living things. I try to figure out why some people swear by the gardening practice of talking to plants. I’m fascinated by the mind-body-soul relationship. The more I read about brains, the more I feel confident, … Read moreI 🖤 Brains

35 Buckets to Kick

The following post is a free write. I will be documenting as many ideas as possible in five minutes. This bucket list isn’t limited to real-life experiences; in some cases, it may be better to explore the dream through the safety of a fictional character. publish a poetry collection publish a novel publish a novella … Read more35 Buckets to Kick
