What's New

My Progress

Progress, yes. Painful, slow, procrastination-inducing progress. I’m now reworking the villain character thread. <maniacal background laughter> Oh, what was that?

What I Write

Writing Sample

Miles and I have never really been friends, more like mating cats without the mating part. We’re fine working together in sharespace or in a virtual reality game (our avatars and game characters are friends) but we don’t do well physically in the same room without others present. Maybe that’s why I was looking forward to the new enhanced Virtuella operating system on my SaikoVR console. It should have installed itself by now. My roommate since freshman year, JV, and I planned on checking out the updated Flying Squirrels game before dinner. Then maybe I could get some decompression time with Miles and the rest of our company crew on a quest in Ghoster later tonight. Honestly, after what I said about their abusive boyfriend the other day, Miles would probably be most happy if I jumped off a roof, got eaten by a dragon, or stepped into a different dimension and disappeared entirely.  I wasn’t entirely sure they would cast a spell to save me anymore, even if it meant the whole team lost.

My Write-a-thon Goals

Writing Goals

That novel I’ve been working on? I’ve got edits back from my editor and my goal is to get all the rewrites and changes done by the end of July.

Fundraising Goals

I’m donating here and will sponsor a few others along the way. Clarion West has been incredibly important to me and my writing, and for the fantastic and supporting community of magical folks and wonderful visionaries that make it up.
