Sprinting To Amazement

(Hi! I’m working on building up my mailing list. Please sign up! Thanks!)

I write fast as it is. That’s a brag—I think I earned it. I’ve written more than a million words and I’m still in my twenties. That’s probably worth some credit.

But even I was not prepared for how effective writing sprints are for me.

Like, these things are absurd. Continue reading

Are You Actually Going To Write A Book Or Just Talk About It?

When you’re a writer, and you tell people that you are, you end up getting a lot of people asking questions about it.

And when you tell them that you’ve written, like, 20 novels/novellas, you get the obvious question:

The stories I already created, that only I had seen, felt like they were staring at me with menace. Like they were angry with me for letting them rot and gather dust. Continue reading

The Constant Hunger

For those that have not been reading my blog long enough to know, I used to be rather overweight. One of my most read articles ever was me talking about my life while being overweight and how I felt after losing a lot of pounds.

But what I never talked about was something odd that’s been a big part of my life for the longest time. I’m sure it had something to do with my weight being so unhealthy as a child, but, even in a healthier place now, it’s not stopped.

And that’s my absurd hunger. Continue reading
