Happy (very belated) Chinese New Year! 🎉🎊🎆🐕 Dogs are finally getting the recognition they deserve (again). But what about dogs under the couch/car/table? Underdogs too shall be recognized. 🐶👑 Ha. Ha ha? 🐾 (I need some fluff cuddling...) Real life has been... interesting of late, to put it mildly, and one of the several reasons for my lack… Continue reading Contests & Blog Updates

Best (Worst?) Practices, An Odyssey #DIYMFA

Happy February! I meant to answer this prompt earlier, but I had a story to write for NYC Midnight's #shortstorychallenge2018! Sad to say procrastination grabbed a hold of me by Wednesday, throwing all productivity aside (engaging all the fear monsters though), but I managed to write 1,500 (aka most of it) on Saturday and of… Continue reading Best (Worst?)

G'day, hi, and hello! First of all, Happy New Year! I hope 2018 will prove kind in its teachings, and bring you joy, peace, and accomplishment(s).

Status Update & Contest Result!?

Bonsoir tout le monde! You might've noticed I pulled the disappearing act, again. The semester was ending, I was traveling, I wasn't writing, I had intense periods of ughs and args, blah di blah, excuses, same old same old. What's new: um, I'm technically writing again (yes, it's fanfiction, but it gets me writing, let's me have fun; in short, it's… Continue reading Status Update & Contest Result!?
