Yeah, I totally, actually, dead-on mean it. This movie was an actual, honest, real masterpiece. Not just in animation, either. It deserves a front row spot in any film enthusiast’s collection. This is why I think that.
I am writing this post because I don’t know what to write for Cosmofragmental. So I spent some time thinking about ways to brainstorm, but after a while I realized that all my best ideas have come from conversations with actual, real other people. And then I realized that I could use that to my […]
Since I started my latest project I’ve been brainstorming ideas for the title. Until about two days ago, they were all complete trash. And then, two days ago, I tentatively settled on one that may or may not be my final choice. Wait for it. Wait for it. It’s Cosmofragmental.
I have this bad habit of going into complete and total rebellion-mode every time I’m assigned a “Mind Map” in class. My guess? Trauma-induced.
November No • vem • ber /nōˈvembər, nəˈvembər/ noun — a month during which those who occupy themselves with the activity of writing experience extreme amounts of stress, adrenaline, and other good things — the month during which the tribal festival of NaNoWriMo is celebrated by the peoples of the world — a month with […]
Man, I can’t believe the last time I posted on this site was early August. A lot has changed since then! School’s started, and Camp NaNoWriMo has ended, and between the two I haven’t been able to write or blog in general–so apologies there. I really hope to get this site going again, but it’s […]
I’m currently on the third draft of the project I’ve been working on for the past two years and—surprise—none of those drafts are finished. At first this seems counterintuitive. What reason would I have for writing three drafts of a story that doesn’t even have an end yet? Well, usually it’s because I lose momentum […]
In this post I’m going to try to talk about procrastination—and how I’ve learned to turn it into anticipation instead. There are a million ways to procrastinate. One of them is reading blog posts about procrastination. Another is writing blog posts about procrastination 😉 But in the end, procrastination always means one thing—words aren’t getting put […]
So this is something I’ve been thinking about for some time now, and it’s especially applicable, I think, to stories told in first person, but it can also be important in other POVs. I thought that maybe I might be able to sort out my own thoughts on the topic by writing about them, so […]
So, for anyone who doesn’t already know what this is, let me say I’m very glad to get to be the one to explain it. Of course, many readers here will already be a part of Camp, but if you aren’t, this is for you. Camp NaNoWriMo is a branch of the larger parent group […]
So let’s say you’re reading about how to write. Don’t we all at some point? There’s hundreds of books and self-proclaimed magical methods for you to write your book better. They suggest all sorts of things: Have an imaginary conversation with your character, write a paragraph about the purpose of every scene, do a warm-up […]
Hi all! Though nobody will probably ever read this, at least not until the far future, I felt like I was almost obligated to write a “first post” post to replace the ugly default one WordPress has picked out. I don’t have a specific destination in mind for this site, but I’m hoping it will […]
