A Beast of Inhuman Author Prowess // aeterna + ramblings + writerversary + snippets + art + all the stuffs

Well hello, my minions! It’s been a while since I mentioned my novel in progress, Aeterna, and some people (AKA me) were beginning to wonder if it fell off the face of the earth or was eaten by wargs or came to some other such hideous end. Folks, I have good news! Aeterna wasn’t eaten [...]

Bloodstained Prayers // a flash-fiction dump + Writer Games entries

GUYS!! Remember that contest I told you about a while back? The flash-fiction thing I was a finalist in? The one I had a mental breakdown over because I was traveling during the last week and had only one day to write my final entry and everything seemed bleak and dismal and-- Yeah, so, I [...]

In Defense of Pink Spray-Paint // a short story

In Defense of Pink Spray-Paint // a short story

Well well, my friends, happy Thursday! For lack of entertaining stories or inspirational tragic musings, I come bearing a short-story. A very old short-story I wrote last summer and like quite a bit. Behold:   In Defense of Pink Spray-PaintShe sings while she paints, and sometimes dances, but no one cares because this is the [...]

Broken-Down Band // preptober prompts + week 4, day 4

Hello, humans! Today is technically the last day of my Preptober Prompts week, so before we get into it, I think I’d better explain what’s been going on with my weird posting schedule, and why I’m proving to be such a shabby host. Basically, writers’ block. (Blame it all on writers’ block.) No, but seriously. [...]

The Catastrophe of Christmas // preptober prompts + week 4, day 3

Yeah, so. This is late. It's been a rough few days...     The Catastrophe of Christmas Tramping through six inches of snow and being brained in the face by a snowball is not Liriel’s idea of fun. In fact, her idea of fun is so radically different from the current situation, she’s contemplating writing [...]

Common Sense // preptober prompts + week 4, day 2

Heyo, humans, welcome back to week #4 of Preptober Prompts, hosted by yours truly! Today's prompt is... *drum roll*   And le song I chose--   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-2CQ1GpMA2o For the record, this isn't my favorite song. But I do find it interesting, and it fits Liriel fairly well, so huzzah for that! (Also, the Orchardists are [...]

Feral Amusement // preptober prompts + week 4, day 1

Hullo, humans! Thus begins the last stretch of October until NaNoWriMo (when we'll bid our sanity farewell), and with it comes Week #4 of Preptober Prompts. (Otherwise known as my week.) Who's excited?? (If you didn't shout "ME!!!" at your screen with the gusto of a tone-deaf rooster, I'm ashamed of you.) If you missed [...]

Bashing My First Book // a glimpse into glenborn + commentary

Bashing My First Book // a glimpse into glenborn + commentary

Leaves are falling, wind is blowing, grocery-store candy shelves are being cleared faster than Gimli drank that tankard of ale, and a miserable Sarah Baran is once again entombed in blankets and wailing about the oncoming cold. Ah, October. How I hate thee. (For those who aren't aware, I am part lizard. Cold and I [...]
