Review of my New Laptop, the Digital Storm Lance

Ah, the joys of computer shopping. Dealing with underpaid stockboys (from anywhere in the world), utterly indifferent management, and machines that work poorly, if at all, when you finally get them.

Writing Log #19: Little bits of progress all over the place!

I begin again with a bit of bad news: I didn’t finish chapter 69 over the weekend. I did make progress on it, though, and also, I actually got hit by a blast of inspiration and did some work on chapter 70! That’s the good news 😀 I’m not sure how wise this method of […]   Love this book review.

Writing Log #17: Some Progress, though not on my fanfic…

*almost* a little late this Friday, my friends, but not quite! Once again, I give you an entry that has a little bit of good news, a little bit of bad news. The bad news: Got barely any work done on Wayward Son (aside from that awesome commission I showed you guys recently :D) The […]
