    The Blank Page

    A few weeks back, I was talking to a poetry writing friend of mine, and she told me how much she loves a fresh, blank page. She sees that blank page and sees the possibilities. It’s freedom. It’s malleable. It could be anything. I see a blank page and I see a brick wall. There are too many possibilities! It’s overwhelming! It’s chaotic! Now, I can understand the blank page love a little. I do love breaking in a new composition book. 💜 It’s freedom! But a blank page on the screen? This is part of why I type my outlines up before I start. Sure, I don’t have to, but then…

    Dance of the Queue Fairy

    So, I mentioned last week, I think, how I’ve already picked out the story to follow “The Puppet Box.” If you happened to stroll through the sidebar or the Writing Projects Garden, you will have seen it already, one working title “Winter’s Siren” aka “Songbird.” 😀 Yeah, I know, after all the hoop-la I spit about picking a next idea super early, I’ve gone and done it again. Well, if I don’t write this story I’ll die!! (Disclaimer: Krystal Jane is just being dramatic.)  Given how long it takes some of my ideas to grow into something writeable, I figured, why not force all super shiny ideas to the back…

    Christmas 2014 & #WIPMarathon Report #11 (December)

    🙂 The end of the year is upon us! Christmastime has passed for some of us, and yours truly received this little cotton ball from her sister: He’s two months old. We’re bonding right now. So far I’ve learned that he hates sudden loud noises (don’t we all) and gets excited over music. My kind of bunny! Also, he pees in a litter box like a cat. So great. ^_^ Anywho, Christmas was good! I got my brother a rather loud, lime green golf shirt, and he really likes it, so score! In less awesome news, during a card game called Spoons (I think), I sustained I lovely, poisonous snake…

    The Greater More Awesomer Creative Writer Personage

    Recently, I got this vanity organizer thingie for my sink. I have this tiny bathroom right now, so all of my hair ties and clips and brushes and miniature beauty product samples (because I’m obsessed) were scattered all over the sink, and I never wanted to clean it because it was just too overwhelming to move all this stuff because my OCD insists I put everything back exactly where it was before, complete with chaos. So DUDES, I feel like I have a whole new bathroom! It feels bigger. I feel like I can breathe. Every time I walk in I can’t help but smile. ^_^ Ah, yes, I do believe…

    Contemporary What?!

    Before I say anything else: GUESS WHO FINISHED THEIR STORY, YO! 1 a.m. Sunday night, can a girl get a high five! Party with the Dancing Kirby! (>’.’)> <(‘.'<) ^(‘.’^) (^’.’)^ And yes I did beat all kinds of records that I will probably never be able to beat again. Lol! Stats: 37k for the last week (say whaaat?!)…beating my old record of 22k 74710 total for the month…beating my old record of 64k 83k total words for the first draft…beating my old record of…well, honestly I’m not entirely sure as I don’t have any un-tinkered with drafts apparently, but most likely 72k. I did not however beat my record…
