An Influx Of Inspiration & Writing An Entire Book The Month Of August

I’m feeling particularly inspired right now. Exceptionally inspired, actually. So inspired, I felt the need to write about it at 11pm on a work night, drenched in gross summery sweat (curse this Seattle humidity). So bear with me, as you always have, whilst I ponder and ramble on about what I’m currently writing—and what I’m […]

E3 2018: Part II

The second set of conferences only added to the grandeur of the first. There’s a lot to talk about, so let’s get right to it.   Square Enix I was admittedly a little disappointed with the lack of content during Square Enix’s presentation this year. While the recent Tomb Raider games have been great, the new installment doesn’t […]

E3 2018: Part I

Alright, kids, all aboard the hype train because we’re going to talk a little bit about the first two days of E3 2018. When I sat down to write out which games I was excited to see a few days back, I mentioned Fallout 76, The Last of Us: Part II, Cyberpunk 2077, Fire Emblem, […]

My E3 2018 Wishlist

The E3 press conferences kick off tomorrow afternoon with EA’s presentation at 11am PST. While I’m covering the conferences remotely this year from Seattle, I’m actually pretty excited to see what everyone has to share.

How Guild Wars 2 Reinvigorated My Creativity

As of late, I have a very complex relationship with gaming. It’s something that I’ve always used to unwind and relax—but my relationship goes a little deeper than entertainment alone. Gaming and interactive media is what I’ve chosen to pursue professionally through the scope of writing. Some of my earliest and some of my best memories growing […]

Winter Notes

I love winter. I love being stuck inside, warm, surrounded by everything that I love: writing, reading, and some good time spent gaming. Creating and absorbing stories, playing out a narrative—these are all things that I associate with the colder months (…or, well, all the time). Since I currently live near Seattle I don’t get […]

My Year in Gaming, 2017

I read far more books in 2017 than I played games. Which, as a writer, is probably for the best—but why I chose to spend my spare time rereading Sarah J Maas’ legacy highlights a few problems that I have with modern gaming. Sure, 2017 wasn’t an entirely barren year. It gave us titles like Breath of […]

One Book A Week, Five Pages A Day

This past year was a trial. I had as many bad days as I had good ones, but there’s something rejuvenating about the fresh start of a new year. I spent a lot of time questioning where I was going, professionally and with my writing, but once I got past a lot of the self-doubt […]

NaNoWriMo 2017

It’s that time of the year again! NaNoWriMo starts the day after tomorrow, and I’m beyond excited. Even though I write full-time, it’s a great period for amateur and professional writers alike to spend a little more time doing what we love, writing! And more importantly, sharing our work, thoughts, and process. This year I’m […]

Media For The Witching Hour

What’s that? It’s the sound of a free schedule. After months of sorting out life changes, soul searching, and non-stop commitments, I’m now in the position to carve out my own path—and it’s about damn time. I can finish the first book of BoI, and start looking for a stellar job…perhaps, start my MA? WHO […]
