There’s a lot going on out there. The pandemic is still very much a thing and frustration at systemic racism has finally boiled over. Earlier this week I started thinking out a blog post about it all, about my own experiences with race and learning to be better. That said, it’s difficult for me to… Continue reading Learn
Hey! Instead of a blogpost this week, go watch my movie! You can also check out some nifty behind the scenes photos on my website.
I kid. I’m mostly sure it’s Saturday. Mostly. Kinda wild that another week has already gone by. Couldn’t tell you what I’ve been doing, just because it’s the thing where days tend to blur together, kinda like how summer days used to back when you were a teenager only with less time spent going outside… Continue reading What Day Is It?
'sup? Today is, more or less, day thirteen of my self-imposed quarantine/isolation. I’m not sick, but as someone who’s in a position to take themself out of the equation of contagiousness, I elected to do so. Social responsibility and all that.

Hey! If you're wondering, yes, I'm still doing NaNoWriMo while trying to remain a functional adult! (I've also, by my count, consumed, twenty beers, nine cups of coffee, seven bottles of kombucha, and seven whiskey sours [amongst other beverages] while writing this month [yes, I am keeping count, and yes, I usually write in the… Continue reading Ah, Crap, It’s 7pm.

It is also a month where foolish people try and write a 50,000 word novel with in its thirty days. Reader, I am one of those fools. In light of National Novel Writing Month,… Continue reading A Post
I like reading. Always have. University was both a boon and a hindrance for that love, though. Courtesy of my course of study, I read a lot. There were classes where I was going through a different book every two weeks. I read books that I might not have checked out of my own volition,… Continue reading What I’ve Been Reading
Let’s talk about guns. Particularly the way we relate to them in fiction, particularly how I relate to them through the fiction I consume. First, however, real life. I’ve handled guns before, fired shotguns and rifles with friends in the American South, and trained with an assault rifle on a range. I mention this to… Continue reading Guns.
