Why Cooking Is Like Writing

Well, they are both art forms. They both revolve around creating a communication, though only one ends in literal digestion. But I mean beyond that.

I’ve been around this blogging thing for a few years now, and occasionally I’ll come across cooking related posts from a blog predominately focused on writing. And for a while, I found that strange. I know people can have, must have, other interests outside of the written word, but it is almost always cooking they bring up on their blogs. Not an eclectic mix of things. Sure there are some outliers, but the amount of culinary fixation was odd.

Not anymore. Because as I cook more and more, I see how the act of making food is like writing in so many ways. Continue reading

Monthly Mentions: January 2015

Another ongoing series!

As if I don’t already have enough of these!

As the month comes to a close, I thought I would make it a habit to set a record of the things I liked/discovered over the month so that I can take a look back and see how my taste in media grew and changed.

It also seems like a really great idea for an article, and a chance to give some shout-outs to my blogger friends.

So, allow me to present my favorite things this month, presented by category, but not in any particular order.

As a side note, these are not necessarily things that were made this month, just things I enjoyed during the time period.

Here we go! Continue reading

9 Things I’ve Learned Being A Writer/Blogger/Professional Word-Slinger (So Far)

I’ve been a writer my entire life.

I just didn’t realize it.

That was until one fateful night, when the editor and chief of Scifibloggers.com contacted me and asked if I would write for him.

I was nervous to say the least, I hadn’t seriously written anything in years. My interest was computers, and I wanted to design video games. I warned him that I wasn’t any good, and that I didn’t think it was a good idea.

He persisted, and got me to write a simple article talking about the death of the eleventh Doctor on Doctor Who (an article that was later edited and posted on this very blog) as a test to see if I was good enough for the site.

It took me an hour to write that article, and I sent it off to him. Feeling nervous as hell, I awaited his judgement.

About twenty minutes later, he hired me on the spot. Continue reading

News: Blast from the Past!

Once upon a time, I was The Rambling Nerd.

I used to post articles called Rambling Reviews, focusing mostly on movies, but also books and anime.

I was a different person then, a different character.

But, you see the thing about life, is that is has a habit of changing on you.

In a blur of activity, forced to change. My life, turned upside down. I had to stop writing for the longest time.

I eventually came back. This site is proof of that. Continue reading
