I’ve done many things that didn’t seem to be relevant at the time, or later felt obsolete in the face of new circumstances. But, in a positive spin of an article, I have something simple to say regarding this.
The actions we do towards a goal are not a loss. There is no way to know what skills we develop and acquire will allow us to make something grand in the future. Continue reading
Fun to be,
A human body—
And a human face.
With a snap, Continue reading
Let’s talk about my writing history here. I don’t mean it as a brag, not much anyway. It’s just context, and it’s interesting context.
I spent about 2 years writing like a madman. A book a month or so. Massive, massive amounts of content. I kept it going even through some pretty intense exhaustion, and I don’t regret that.
But there came a day when I was working on a book and I wasn’t exactly blocked, I was just…off. I felt tired of it, unwilling, though not unable, to write another book. 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
It cost a lot,
But the power behind the screen, Continue reading
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
Brandon Scott realized that he had written, by now, so many odd stories that he started these microfictions with simple nonsense words, and then tried to work them backward. Today’s brain bubbling bramble was something called “Cajun Bacon,” and he assumed it was a story about some type of spicy bacon, or something. Continue reading
I had this freaking pain,
In my brain,
An arching thing,
Making me play— Continue reading
A story told,
Of things that are not real,
But fakeness lacking,
A product of zeal, Continue reading
The second book is out and ready!
It took me a little longer than expected to get this one out with everything going on in the world right now, but it’s available for purchase or for borrow on Kindle Unlimited.
It picks up a little later in the timeline from the first book and introduces honestly some of my favorite characters I’ve written. The satire aspects of the series are also, arguably, even more extreme than they were in the first book, but you’ll have to read the book to see what I mean.
I’m now trying to publish a book every month and so far I’m mostly on track. For as long as I can, I’m publishing and improving and trying new things. I’m even making some money at this author game.
So, yeah, I’m very excited to see where this all takes me and looking forward to finally, finally getting all five books in the Quintet out for people to read.
Stay tuned. The books only get more insane from here.

Want to read something longer by me? How about a whole novel!
“Just Another Chosen One is a blisteringly paced, action-soaked debut from author Brandon Scott, sure to appeal to those who’ve gotten tired of reading the same old stories about the child of prophecy destined to save the world.”
It’s been a long while,
Since my body did that,
And crashed, Continue reading
I am a tech-head,
A person who knows a device,
A person who works with computers,
And makes them do my bidding, Continue reading
Despite it feeling,
In the suburbs at least,
That the outside is not too bad,
Looking out—seeing the sun—
For the moment,
Outside is not what we have. Continue reading
Toiling away at your latest art project can take longer than it needs to take.
Let me repeat that: you can make art faster.
But how? Well, it’s possible for all sorts of artists and creators to get out creations faster if they simply let go of something: their need for it to be perfect. Continue reading

You develop some skill,
You also end up,
With signature recipes, Continue reading
As the long haul settles in for this whole stuck-at-home thing, I’m sure some of you are feeling rather bored, frustrated, or stir crazy.
That’s understandable, and not abnormal. Humans are not meant to be stuck inside this much. However, as a person who willingly stays inside and doesn’t do much that doesn’t involve computers, this whole thing hasn’t been that strange for me.
And, as a person who’s not usually bored, I wanted to offer some advice for anyone that finds themselves growing unable to do much more than eat and sleep and maybe play video games. Continue reading
