    Poetry and Such

    GUYS! 😀 I has news! …kinda, sorta, whatever, dontlookatme. >.< So, you may or may not know that around two and a half years ago I had half a mind to publish a book of poems. I never set a deadline for this project, and it was quite easy to push aside, but I did expect to publish it one day. And well…I’m crazy close to my goal. As of this posting, I have the 100 or so poems I wanted, and I don’t know if they’ll all make the final cut, but I’m trying not to be paranoid about it. If I cut something, I want it to be because…

    Book Writing: Technical Stuff

    First thing I wanted to say is that I’M FINISHED!! Sorry headphone users. Haha. I’m 100% finished with WINTER’S SIREN which is insanely exciting.

Came with a free novella and a fan that plugs into smart phones. ^_^ I somehow miraculously made it in time for the keynote, but it was super short, so sad to say, I barely remember anything. Plus I missed a bit of it because I had to pee and they started a little early. This next picture is some greenery I ran into across from the hotel entrance. I took notes…

    Official Announcement Time ^_^

    Since I’m cataloging my writing journey here on The Narcissistic Rose, today I’m going to make an announcement about such journey. ^_^ It happened on a Friday. September 9th, 2016. I was going about my day (as people do), and an idea for a project just hit me, it would seem, quite suddenly and out of nowhere. Not a novel project – a smaller project. I wanted to publish it myself, and I was so insanely excited. I can’t really even explain why I wanted to go the indie route with this, other than a wild seed of some kind must have been planted in my head some time ago, because plants…
