Ten Years Later

In 2012, I wrote about 175,000 words. I don’t think I’ve ever written that much before then. 2012 was the year I started to taking my writing seriously. Most of this word count came from my verse, The Mondian Chronicles. This particular verse started in earnest in 2011, but I had had the idea since […]

What should I title you?

Hey guys! I was looking over some notes for my TRW verse. A little background, it’s an alternate history where Princess Charlotte of Wales (cousin to Queen Victoria and original heir to the British throne) didn’t die and lived to become queen.

On Races and Species

I was just thinking about fantasy fiction. I’ve been reading it for a long time and I love the genre to death.

I’m usually not this bad at updating my blogs. I swear I’m not but if you’ve ever played a Sims game, then you know how it goes. Then there was the health problems I’m still dealing with. Things are getting resolved, but things have gotten a bit more hectic in the past few weeks. But […]

I Keep Falling Behind

I haven’t been reading as much. I keep starting books but none have really captured me, you know what I mean? But I just started a biography and I hope I can finish it. I’ll be back soon. No matter how long I stay away from my beloved books, I always return. Always.
