Supernatural adventures for girls and women.

[writing] Project List, April 2017

Slightly late this month, but I was out of town helping my sister and brother-in-law move into their new house (their first home purchase! It’s super exciting!), and got back too late (and too exhausted) to want to do anything but shower, cuddle the dog, and go to bed. I have been submitting more things […]

[gaming] Sims 3 Legacy: The Rainbow Legacy 1.1 I Want to Suck Your Blood

Welcome to the Somewhere Over the Rainbow Legacy. This is a very fly-by-night legacy; I have no idea what kind of rules I’ll follow, what the goal is, what I’ll track – basically, the only thing I’ve decided on is that everything about the founder was chosen by the roll of a die and the […]

[writing] Project List, February 2017

First writing update of the new year. I am sometimes still struggling with writing in the face of facist regime — what is the point of creation? I struggle with this a lot, though, because creating, especially the story of fiction I write (and art I make), seems futile. (It was supposed to get better as the […]

[writing] Project List, December 2016

Another year nearly done. This year, unlike last year, I wrote a lot and finished a ton of first and second drafts, but I need to work on building more time to edit those drafts into my schedule, because I do want to take the next step of submitting to agents and publishers soon. I’m […]

[writing] Project List, November 2016

November is on track to be my worst writing month of the year. None of my anger or fear is new, because I am constantly worried about my beloved friends and family who face racism, homophobia, ableism, sexism, transphobia — but it is particularly terrible right now, and it is hard to focus when I […]

[writing] Project List, October 2016

Writing is going very slowly this month, which is a downer after the past few months of putting up big numbers. I’m sitting at 450k out of 500k for the year, though, so still ahead of schedule. Trying to finish the marching rock band story I’m writing now, and I think I’ve chosen the next […]

[writing] Project List, September 2016

It is amazing how much more I write when I track my daily writing. That’s not to say I have a specific daily goal (well, I do, sort of, because I have an annual goal, and that is broken down into monthly, weekly, and daily numbers to hit, but mostly I ignore it), but I […]

[writing] Project List, August 2016

Both day job and writing work exploded the past couple months. Both for good reasons, but I’ve been pretty scarce here and across social media (though I did document some of my day job adventures, including OMG GIANT PUMPKINS, on Instagram). Still, it is well past time for a project update. Current active projects: UK […]
