Forging the Fellowship // quests, characters, and interrogations

Hello, lovelies! It's been a long time since I've been tagged for anything (thank the Valar that everyone finally realized I'm no longer eligible for the Leibster Award...), and I can't say I'm disappointed about any of it. Blog tags have an evil tendency to pile up and suck the life from your brain. It's [...]

Unruly Characters and Awkward Interviews // meet the cast of Aeterna

Unruly Characters and Awkward Interviews // meet the cast of Aeterna

I would like to formally recant a statement I made last week: "Boy, NaNoWriMo is easy!" [insert negative adjectives here] The biggest downfall with nano is that all my creative energy gets channeled into my book, with none left over for the blog. This results in stress, scrambling last minute to churn out something half-way [...]

Of Characters and Concept Designs: The Artistic World of Aeterna

The sun is bright, the wind is cold, and the strange Sarah creature has entered into Week #2 of NaNoWriMo. Surprisingly, all of her primary psychological functions are still mostly intact.

The beautiful logo and newsletter button are courtesy of Kendra Lynne, who deserves a massive huzzah for her efforts. Can we take a moment [...]

About that Book… (plus a new title, and other cool stuff)

SO. You may remember a post I did back in September, when I announced that I was taking an official leave-of-absence from my book, The Silvershaw of Glenborn, to explore other stories and hopefully get the pain to subside in my neck. (Boy, that was a run-on sentence.) Well. No matter how hard I try, I [...]

Ink Pens, Abstracts, and the End of All Things (mainly art class)

Ink Pens, Abstracts, and the End of All Things (mainly art class)

Monday was the last day of art class, and I have but one thing to say to you all: FREEEEEEEEEEEEDOM. *wild screeching* *energetic fist-pumping* *crazed cackling* *flips the table* I get to paint what I want now. No more modern art. No more mutilated-looking fish. Nothing but a blank canvas and the prospect of as [...]
