An Update

I have been very busy with work and writing lately, but I thought I’d give you an update. I have signed up for Scribophile under Matthew Hess, Writing.com under BD Hesse, and Writer’s Cafe also under BD Hesse, so anyone with accounts at any of thos sites can feel free to find me there.
Eventually I’m hoping to get back to my The Boy in the Woods story, but my first priority is trying to get a short story published. I also want to go over some of my other stories and edit them, but that will be done after I finish The Boy in the Woods.
In the meantime, I will try to post more regularily.

What Would You Like Me to Write About?

Since I’ve been doing this blog for a year now, I thought I’d try something a little different. Are there any questions that you’d like to ask me that you’d like me to respond to in a post? Is there something you’d like to know about me? Or some topic you’d like me to discuss? Are you interested in my opinion on anything? Let me know in the comment section.

My One Year Anniversary!

Was actually two days ago, but I guess I’ll announce it now :P. I’ve been writing this blog for a year now and it’s going great. Thank you for all of the support.

Cats Make Blogging More Difficult

My partner and I got a cat a week ago. She is a very sweet and loving girl, but she’s high energy and loves attention. We’ve been calling her the attention seeking missile because she’ll be happily playing and then she’ll suddenly appear meowing to crawl into one of our laps. We love her deeply, even after such a short time, but she does make it difficult to get work done. I swear she knows when I’m blogging. I start a post and she’s suddenly there, wanting to be held. Sometimes she just wants to play. She likes chewing on the cords attatched to our computers.
And now she’s fast asleep on the bed.

What Controverstial Topic Would You Write About?

If you didn’t have to worry about any backlash, what would you write about? And how would you write about it?
I’d like to make a horror story with Yahweh as the bad guy, but that would most certainly get a lot of negative attention.

The ability to heal myself and regenerate.

Intelligence, humor, the will to fight for what they believe in.
What one song will you never get tired of listening to?
Pretty Little Head by Eliza Rickman.

Depends. My anxiety disorder makes conflict hard. I can be avoidant at times. But I also believe that it’s important to deal with things before they fester. I try to take conflict head-on. Sometimes I succeed, sometimes I don’t.
What do you consider unforgivable?
Ignorance.
