Book Recommendation Monday

Posted on January 20, 2020 at 7:00 PM Comments comments (0)

I like a good fluff historical book that touches on many things. And this one fits the bill. It follows queens including Arsinoe (Cleopatra's sister) to Princess Di and how society/political enemies ruined them.

Book Recommendation Monday: Exit, Pursued by a Bear

Want to be depressed for a few hundred pages? The story of a teenager drugged and raped at cheerleading camp. The rest follows her dealing with the trauma throughout her senior year and how cheerleading keeps her grounded.

Video Game Recommendation Monday

Posted on January 6, 2020 at 7:00 PM Comments comments (0)

Games one and three are good too (we don't talk about Andromeda), but I love Mass Effect 2. The opening scene is the best I think I have ever played. The main character DIES. The rest of the game takes place two years later after a shady space corporation brings you back to life and your subsequent...

TV Show Recommendation: The Witcher

Posted on December 30, 2019 at 7:00 PM Comments comments (0)

So I went into this show thinking I'd dislike it but was willing to try. The first game is eh. I like plot-driven games, and The Witcher was more meandering than anything and, at times, ridiculously gross/sexist. However, I loved this show. The first episode was decent, but episode two onwards had me hooked. Hook...

2020 Goals

Posted on December 28, 2019 at 7:20 PM Comments comments (0)


We are heading into a new decade. What is up with that? I fell behind on my monthly goals because I fell into a reading and writing slump as I finished out the semester. So what does 2020 hold?


 

- Actual publishing? I didn't publish anything in 2019 and looking at my current works in progress, 2020 doesn't look ...

Rise of Skywalker Episode Review

Posted on December 22, 2019 at 9:25 AM Comments comments (1)


Three stars


Rise of Skywalker amirite? This review in a word, underwhelmed. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t that good. It was Abrams's ode to the original trilogy without bothering to keep the originality Johnson gave in The Last Jedi. There’s mild spoilers below, but I’ll keep the major...

Nerd Rage

Posted on December 20, 2019 at 8:55 AM Comments comments (1)

Today I shall speak of something near and dear to my heart. Something I have spent two decades enjoying. Something that inspired me to continue writing. I am talking of course about Star Wars: Expanded Universe. Yes that most nerdy of things which I have indulged many hours into. I have my favorite EU characters (Tenal Ka!), series (Jedi Academy), and I am especially interested in Anakin/Obi-Wan adventures pre-Clone Wars.

Fiverr

Posted on November 22, 2019 at 6:40 AM Comments comments (1)

I had to deactivate my fiverr account and at first it was like a dagger in my heart. I liked fiverr, or more specifically, I liked all the writing I got done. I have felt creatively blocked for so long. I have so many half finished projects it constantly feels like I'm a backed up drain. Too many ideas, not enough time, so nothing gets done. Nothing was getting done before fiverr and hopefully now I'll just pick something and finish it. Then onward to the next and finish that. ...

I meant to put up these blog posts on different days, before I watched season six and after, but due to a truly bizarre emailing mishap I couldn’t access the BEFORE blog post until today. So they will be appearing together. Why? Because they’re both ready and I’m already on my laptop, t...
