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

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.

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.
