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, … Continue reading Introducing Update Buttons!
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); … Continue reading Celebrating the Beginning of July
Yesterday's postponed goals still aren't complete. 😶 But I wrote a lot on Wattpad today? "Creation Myth" for Emergence No. 7 (also acts as Prologue Header) "E'Ruin Code 3.6.9" for Emergence No. 7 (also acts as Part One Header) "Four, Five, & Six" for Emergence No. 7 (also acts as Part Two Header) 4K outline of … Continue reading Wattpad Updates
Neither Chase nor I got much sleep last night, so today started slow. However, I still felt determined to finish the goals I set for myself yesterday. Today's Goals & Self-Pubs ✅ Social media goal: Half hour (and no more!—practicing consistency and moderation) of organizing my wedding Pinterest boards into sub-groups for easier navigation.

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 … Continue reading Does Sci-fi Inspire Science? Or Science Inspire Sci-fi?
The other day, before bed, I tallied it up—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 … Continue reading I 💕🐲💕 Fantasy Genre
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 … Continue reading Explore 💙 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?—the way my family's reacted to my mental illness. Meaning Making 🖤 Reflecting on Feelings It hasn't been all bad, of course. There's no such thing as all … Continue reading Explore 💖 Suffering

That's how Mom raised … Continue reading Existential Crises Whirlpool
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 … Continue reading Explore 🤖 Quantum Stuff
