Ireland, Politics and the feeling of Home

Is it possible for a place to call to you? To leave such an indelible imprint in your soul that you choke back tears just thinking about it? #askingforafriend I’m not sure exactly when it happened but I was sucked in by the smell of it. The mist, the grass, the peat smoke, the green…

Organize, ya’ll!

Organizing for the new year? I know, it seems like it’s a cliche, doesn’t it?  All the stores use January to put organizing items on sale but pump the breaks a second. Don’t buy immediately, sort and donate first. Also cliché you say?  Well, I’m here to tell you that most Americans have TOO MUCH…

Intentions, yo!

Hey ya’ll!  It’s that time of year again. 2016 can suck it, amirite? While I did get to do a lot of cool things, one thing that did not happen was finding time in 2016 for all my intentions, I am keeping it simple: 2017 is all about ME. I can already hear you saying “she will…

Happy Friday!

It’s been a long damn week.  Here is a cat picture from Angus.  🙂      

Working on a Series

This month my screenwriting course had us work on a variety of episodic and serial writing projects.  This included not only TV, but also a web series, video games and comics.  Having come to this course as a novelist, I never really considered writing on a show.  I am humbled and amazed at the amount…

Cosplay Corner – Knightmage

When I first had the opportunity to interview Knightmage last year, it was for Almost Nerdy.  I was, and still am, completely in awe of his Spawn project.  I got a chance to catch up with him recently about some super cool stuff he is doing so I took the opportunity to ask about his…
