I felt the need to share this with you today to motivate you to make different choices this week. As we head into the last week of October I hope you will all remember that it's never too late to start making better choices. Stay tuned for more videos and don't forget to add me...

Today is National Writing day and the hashtag #WhyIWrite is trending (as it should). NaNoWriMo looms ahead, a mere 11 days away. As I fight the panic the will inevitably engulf me on October 31, I am faced with completing my prep for this year's NaNoWriMo. Before I go on, be sure to like this post.... Continue Reading →
I love it when I find a great read. This counts as one of them, so I’m passing it on to you!
Once upon a time, in a land where the summer sun can kill your soul, on the patio of a restaurant bar where the libations eased the slow heat-death, a discussion took place betwixt a certain writer and a certain beloved person in the writer’s life. The conversation was initially mundane, with rambling whatnots about who would sleep with George Clooney if given the chance and whether or not a proper queso recipe should include diced onion. Then, in a rather alarming development, the dialogue became a wee bit accusatory, and non-sexual passions were enflamed. Nonetheless, some intriguing considerations arose, and I would be remiss in my responsibilities as a writer if I didn’t share this conversation with you.
(Note: Forthwith, the “writer” shall be known as “Hexom”, a character in one of my books, a simple ploy that should give the illusion that someone else has an issue, even…

I seem to recall writing something in the not too distant past about how the writers of dramas (of the Korean, Chinese/Taiwanese variety) are a bunch of lazy assholes whose female characters are caricatures of real women and whose plots have holes so big you can drive a double-decker bus through them. As a result, I... Continue Reading →
So if you don't know what NaNoWriMo is, it stands for National Novel Writing Month During this month, each participant commits to writing 1667 words each day in order to complete a 50K word novel manuscript. For some of us, 1667 is little more than an hour at the keyboard. For others, it is a... Continue Reading →
It’s rare that I find people who are on my wavelength when it comes to things like drinking or even dating, but I could’ve written these exact words when I was in college. Full disclosure, yes I tried drinking and no, it was not fun. If you’re one of the few who don’t drink simply because you don’t like it you are not alone. Don’t feel pressured to get into the drinking or party culture. Make decisions that are right for you. Anyway, show this sister some love for her honestly and willingness to make decisions that are right for her despite being in the minority.
Hiya everyone! Just to clarify, by drinking I mean alcohol – I do enjoy drinking the normal drink of water or squash etc hahaha!
I don’t like drinking alcohol. And that’s pretty much it.
I have been drinking alcohol quite a lot recently but that’s simply because I wanted to fit in. I so desperately wanted to fit in with all my friends who loved going out drinking on the weekends and also to fit in with the student stereotype. It just isn’t for me, at all. It makes me uncomfortable when I do drink and that’s just simply my fault.
I tried so hard to like drinking and I always feel like I’ve let my friends down because I never want to go out. And that’s because I don’t like being around drunk people when I’m sober and that’s really all there is to it. Because of this, I…

This will probably get me screamed at if it's ever discovered, so promise me you won't tell my mom. OKay. So my mother, God bless her, is a stickler for honesty. That sounds like a great quality to have, and it is most of the time, but it can lead to some pretty ridiculous misunderstandings.... Continue Reading →
It happens fairly regularly. My phone will buzz with a notification. There's a message or a comment from a reader. For me, this is the highlight of my day. There is a lot of poetic nonsense about writing for an audience of one floating around out in artsy circles. Let me tell you, I don't... Continue Reading →
"Looks like things are moving forward for you two. I can't say I understand the appeal, but the two of you do make a nice couple," Omar said bitterly. "Thank you," Adam said simply. "I wasn't complimenting you," Omar snickered. "No, you misunderstand me. Thank you for being so low and so disappointing that a... Continue Reading →
