Merry Christmas! Here's what's been happening and where it's going. · 10:01pm Dec 25th, 2019

So here's what's been happening for... well, years now. First of all, I was a grad student, trying to get a Master's Degree. I had some big up s and some decently bad downs. In addition, I was unemployed for seven months AND I live with my parents. Not exactly a good combination for free time, not having money and being hounded because of it. Then I finally managed to get a job... as a telemarketer. I've been working there for the past six months and honestly, if it wasn't for the the fact that

Thinking of the past in the future · 7:41pm Apr 16th, 2019

So good news, I finally finished a grueling class and managed to get an A in it, so I've got about a week or two of mostly free time (still need to find a job). So expect updates coming.

Trying to get back in the groove (Fan request) · 11:03pm Mar 13th, 2019

So as you can tell I haven't written anything in a while. Life has been difficult lately, and every time I try to write I get distracted or lose interest. I don't want to let you guys down though, but I can't seem to get the motivation, at least for the stories I already have. I have so many new ideas but I don't want to work on them until I get some other things finished or at least progress them more.

Patreon Voting Deadline · 7:44pm Nov 9th, 2018

Just so you guys know my first Patreon fanfic poll will be ending tomorrow. This is deciding which fic I will focus most of my effort on and (hopefully) finish the next chapter by the end of the month. Right now it's 2 to 2 between "Epicness" and "(Un)Dead" (so I may have to just toss a coin. Remember, $1 patrons get to vote, and $3 patrons get to look at and leave comments on the fic google doc if they so choose. The link to my Patreon is at the top of my page.

Getting Down to Patreon · 2:25am Nov 4th, 2018

Some 6 month internship ended, and though I will be looking for a new job I will also be using to this free time to both get back to really working on my fan fictions and start using Patreon in earnest. As I mentioned before, I'm going to have one tier on my Patreon where Paetrons can have a look, and leave comments, on certain fanfic chapters I'm working on. So here's how this is gonna work.

Patreon Advice · 3:04am Oct 3rd, 2018

So I started a Patreon last year on my birthday... and I haven't done anything with it. I think it's time to change that, but I'm deciding exactly how I want to operate it. Obviously $1would be the base pledge, but I was wondering what to add for higher tiers. I'm not gonna do requests (there's no way I could come up with the motivation to write a story someone else wanted me to make if I didn't also want to make it), so the only thing I can think of is maybe getting sneak peeks/allow comments

"The Secret of Monkey Island" or "How to Write an Engaging, Yet Pointless, Story." · 2:44am Jul 16th, 2018

So, I have not played The Secret of Monkey Island (it was before my time), but this video talking about Bothe the story, game design, and characters is one of the most fascinating things I have ever seen. Though I find all of it great, I think the first part on theme is the best. I can't think of a story in any medium where the protagonist has little to no effect on the plot. Not in the "it was all for nothing" kind of pointless, or the "I played a small and unnoticed but important role" but

Story advice · 9:50pm Jun 29th, 2018

So I had another story idea, shocker I know, but it's one that I had for a while. Without spoiling too much it's a Castlevania crossover, specifically with the Netflix version of Trevor Belmont. Not originally I had it as a displaced story, but it's self contained and rather averse to crossovers. I have another story idea that's the same, but unlike that one this story wouldn't be helped or hurt if it was a displaced. So should I just not make it one? I mean, it involves Trevor just popping

Update and Cool News · 2:27am Jun 22nd, 2018

Ok, so first I want to apologize for taking so long with updates. I'm not only still doing grad school but I have an internship now that has me working from 9-5, so less time for everything. Upside, it is an office job and every paycheck I've made so far is over $1,000 for two weeks. That's more than I've made at any job, even that telemarketing one I took.
