NaNoWriMo Update (Week 3)

How time flies! As of today, we’re a little over halfway through NaNoWriMo 2016. This is going to be a short update, because I want to get back to actually writing! I’m beyond excited about this piece and where it’s going. I’m at about 30k words, and that’s not counting the tons of pages of notes that […]

NaNoWriMo Update (Week Two)

“Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion’s starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don’t see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often it’s not particularly dignified or newsworthy, […]

The First Week of NaNoWriMo

Today is the fourth day of NaNoWriMo 2016, and damn. What a week! For starters, Neil Gaiman retweeted me. It wasn’t related to my work or my writing, but I just about had a heart attack in our kitchen. It happened a few nights before the start of NaNoWriMo, and if that isn’t a good omen […]

Preparing for NaNoWriMo

Chrysanthemum Frowns is by far the most viewed content that I’ve posted on the blog to date, and some of you may have noticed that I recently took it all down.

BOOBS or GTFO: I, The Female Gamer

…professionally and casually. Whether this turns into a low-key discussion or rant, I don’t know. I think I’m a pretty casual person, but discussion is important and representation/standing opinion is necessary. There was a time when I was afraid to express my thoughts on this subject, but have since realized that silence extremely counter productive and […]

What have I been up to?

Time flies when you’re working with a non-profit convention and a good chunk of your spare life has been spent producing mass amounts of marketing copy for their blog and website. Whew! As some of you may know, when I’m not writing, gaming, applying for jobs, figuring out this whole book thing, or pretending to be […]

Writing Moral Decisions and Video Games

Over the weekend, I set aside all responsibility and sat down to play one of my all-time favorite games, Guild Wars 2. It’s something that I can’t put down, even after a full year without playing. For the hell of it, I decided to start a new character to readjust to the game versus picking […]

Blog Additions and Projects

In the midst of writing my book, swimming under a daily pile of job applications, and attempting to provide my body with the necessary nourishment needed to function as a normal human being: I’ve added a few new pages to the blog! You may have already noticed, but there is now a Calendar and a Contact […]

Ideal Storytelling and First Person Exploration Games

I picked up Dear Esther during the Steam Summer Sale of 2012 for barely one dollar. Just wanting to play something different after months of infatuation with Minecraft, a friend and I decided to play it together over Skype (she was in Hawaii, and I in DC). Besides numerous games of invisible Marco Polo, quickly describing […]

My (Personal) Favorite 3DS Titles

At first, I wanted to title this one “Why My 3DS Is Just As Cool As My Xbox One and PS4,” but I decided against that. There is an strong undercurrent of console discrimination, and my little pink handheld is often thrown to the waves — especially when compared to the bigger boxes. But you know […]
