Introducing Update Buttons!

I made three updates todayβ€”two on Wattpad, and one in my WordPress blogosphereβ€”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!

Celebrating the Beginning of July

On July 1st, I added to three of my Wattpad projects, including the arduous task of one-sentence synopsi in the comments section of each chapter (and technically, I also worked on this for a good part of July 2nd, but when I’m having an insomniac writing binge, relative things like time fly out the window); … Read moreCelebrating the Beginning of July

Today’s Goals & Self-Pubs βœ… Social media goal: Half hour (and no more!β€”practicing consistency and moderation) of organizing my wedding Pinterest boards into sub-groups for easier navigation.

Does Sci-fi Inspire Science? Or Science Inspire Sci-fi?

@40:13, “How much do you think sci-fi influences science?” Quite a lot, actually… Even now, I think there’s something similar about them; because they’re both about imagination… it’s about letting your mind wander, distant worlds, subatomic realms… I still love science fiction. The science fiction readers of today become the scientists of tomorrow. The scientists … Read moreDoes Sci-fi Inspire Science? Or Science Inspire Sci-fi?

I πŸ’•πŸ²πŸ’• Fantasy Genre

The other day, before bed, I tallied it upβ€”and I wrote 7.5K words in a single day. In graduate school, I’d often pump out just as many words in a day, but that’s because I had this mindset, “This writing isn’t my best writing,” this mindset that I was just building blocks, exercises that lifted … Read moreI πŸ’•πŸ²πŸ’• Fantasy Genre

Explore πŸ’™ That Part of the Internet

I don’t feel like you should call for people to do things to benefit this planet unless you’re doing what you can to help our little blue dot, too. Inactive supporters of an idea are just as difficult a challenge for humanity to conquer as active ignorance; two sides of the same coin. I like … Read moreExplore πŸ’™ That Part of the Internet

Depression is hard. Why we still haven’t come to an agreement about this topic as a society, I have no idea. But what I’m really most surprised by?β€”the way my family’s reacted to my mental illness.

Explore πŸ€– Quantum Stuff

When I’m processing emotions, it helps to focus on my special interests. So when the sky is falling, there’s nothing like studying something I know next to nothing about, yet I find unbearably interesting, like quantum physics. By focusing on science, I can zoom out of my body, away from my family anxieties, and into … Read moreExplore πŸ€– Quantum Stuff
