Take care, be gentle with yourself, and celebrate as much as you can, even if it’s just making your morning cup of coffee. The world is stressful, but you're allowed to take a bit of a break from it, every now and then, and recognize how much you've accomplished.
Lacking: Creative Blocks in Quarantine
When I talked about how I felt in the pandemic before, I brought up that concern regarding the lack of face-to-face interactions, and how that would be my biggest obstacle. I know how to keep myself busy at home, so I never worry about getting bored, but now the concern is the lack of novelty in any experience. Lack of inspiration.
Lack of creative fuel.
New Merch! “C’mon Raccoon City, Let’s Get Sickening!”
Some new merch just launched on my merch store, and I am BEYOND happy with how it turned out! I had this dramatic little movie trailer made so that I can announce it, and also give you some context on how this merch was born. If you like spooky stuff, and if you like looking …

Things have been...pretty weird, haven’t they? A little weird, very tragic, and I think we’ve all been thrown off-balance by what this COVID-19 pandemic has brought us.

In The NaNoWriMo Home Stretch!
So as I'm writing this, we have literally a whole week left of National Novel Writing Month, and I...kind of feel like it's kicking my butt. But that doesn't mean I'm not still determined! We're 7 days away from the end of the month, and I'm currently sitting at 15,826 words written in this novel. …
Novel Writing has Commenced!
The novel writing process has STARTED and I am SO EXCITED about it! At the point of writing this update, I’m currently at about 5,500 words, and it feels so good to be making this kind of progress. It had been a while since I let myself be motivated by National Novel Writing Month, but …
Should You Participate in NaNoWriMo?
