Nightmares and Red Palms

Hey everyone! I have a new story up on my Wattpad.  It’s called Nightmares and Red Palms. I’m considering publishing it just so some of you all can get physical copies of it, but it is possible that I may just add it as a bonus in the back of my next publication. Who knows. Nightmares and Red Palms is a historical…

Wave Painting Time Lapse – Crocketagne

Hey everyone! I started a YouTube channel!  I started a YouTube channel! Below is my first video and I will be posting a new video every week.

Days 18, 21, and 22

Hey Readers, My eyes are pretty much better so I’m psyched to write. It’s been like an itch that I can’t scratch… Sorry about the combo of days here, by the way. With all of the Black Friday sales, I traded out my old computer for a new one that works! Get this: it loads Microsoft Word without a ten-minute pause. It’s…

Day 14 and 15

Hey Reader, Sorry that we are still having trouble with the internet in my neighborhood, but here I am. Just so you know… I quit this year’s NaNoWriMo about a week ago but I’ve been putting off mentioning it. I’m not giving up on the story or anything. In fact, I’m going to be writing it next month I think.…

Day 10 (And 11)

Hey Reader, Sorry I didn’t post yesterday! Something happened last night with my neighborhood and everybody’s internet went out… But it’s back! So I’m going to give you what I wrote yesterday, okay? I suppose, though, that you still need a challenge for day 11. How about this: Today I went to a book store and made a list of…

Day 9

Hey Reader, Sorry, I skipped day 8… American election exploding and all. Seeing as how I live in America, that was kind of a huge deal for my family, friends and me. Anyway, today I’d like to talk about that inner editor. I’ve been trying not to bring the inner editor up, like maybe it would go away, but I…

Day 7

Hey Reader, Sorry it’s late. Something occurred to me earlier today, though. I’ve really been wanting to read this book that my friend brought to school today and I took  sneak peek at the first few pages. Just by looking at the book it made me think a lot more about the style of writing I’m using for this book…

Day 4

Word Count: Still somewhere in the 2,000’s Hey Reader, So I just did a ton of stuff I was going to have to do tomorrow, and now I won’t have to do it. In other words, tomorrow is pretty much going to be a full day of writing! I’m about so start my marathon… I usually work better at night…
