I'm sure by now you've noticed I self published my first book; Etta! I figured I'd do a little blog post just to talk about the experience and the reaction I got from it. I'm sure people are wondering how well it's done and if I've made any money (I don't think it's rude to … Continue reading Honest Thoughts on Self Publishing
I can't even believe this month is already over. I don't know if you've noticed but I didn't keep up with my usual number of posts; I'm feeling the shame, don't worry! However, saying that I'm also not. I have mentioned things here and there about my writing and I'm going to be using July … Continue reading Busy June
Batman vs Superman
Listen, it was only a matter of time before I talked about this so at least be grateful I left it a week before I wrote this! I love Batman movies. I love Superman movies.

With self-congratulations out of the way … Continue reading Hitting 100 and a book review

I've written a few since then but this was the one I was determined to finish and try to get published first because it's my baby. Edit after edit, painful year after year, I've worked on this to the point … Continue reading I finished my novel!
Memorable Lines -Labyrinth
Now that the shock and the media meltdown has faded I feel like I can write a post where it doesn't feel like I'm just adding to the noise. I often have the Labyrinth soundtrack playing in my head.

Verbally telling stories is something … Continue reading 30th January – National storytelling week
