This is not a random picture

Well, it is. But I just happened to have the facial wipes on the table when I sat down with my drink. Botlhouse Farms – if you don’t know, they are one of the best bottled smoothies you can buy. Especially if you can get them for under $3. This one is Strawberry Banana, packingContinue reading “This is not a random picture”

How to Organize and Develop Ideas for Your Novel

I have various samples and bits and pieces of scenes and some ideas yet to be organized. But it is days like today, when IContinue reading “How to Organize and Develop Ideas for Your Novel”

A trip to the north and sickness have kept me at bay

But I’m back now! Still recovering from a virus and throat ulcers. I have taken full advantage of my situation by not doing a bit of work. I might regret that later on today.

Current mood: this video that I’m making

This is what I’m working on in between my actual deadlines and stuff. There’s a very real part of me that wants to do this for a living. I’m nearly addicted to editing a story out of my low-budget scenes. I imagine all the time what I would do with professionally shot footage, and–oh, LordContinue reading “Current mood: this video that I’m making”

What’s that famous quote that says something like, “Life is what happens when you’re busy trying to write articles for deadlines and get school assignments done”? Well, it’s been a fitting summary of the past few days. But work and deadlines aren’t the most important thing. I have no cool articles or videos to shareContinue reading “Down, but not Derailed”
