Gettin' vaccinated · 5:33am March 4th

Some creative nonfiction because I got my first dose of vaccine today, and it feels… kinda… historic… y’know?

Online Science Fiction and Fantasy Creator Conference happening Today through Saturday · 4:35pm February 11th

Yo, I keep deleting blog posts related to this because I don't want my real name out there. But I've put in a friggin' lot of my life into this SF/Fantasy (mostly writing) conference: Life, the Universe, & Everything.
It's online this year because of COVID, so if you would like to come, now's the best time to join in:

The best year of my life (so far) · 9:02pm Dec 19th, 2020

I feel super ashamed even writing this post because it has been a horrific year in general for most people. And writing about my own personal good fortune in such an awful year feels like an exercise in extreme narcissism. And it sounds like bragging? I feel like I shouldn't talk about good fortune in such an unfortunately bad year.

"Show, don't tell" brings the exact same emotional miscommunication we face in real life to our fiction · 6:17am Mar 17th, 2020

I recently finished Malcom Gladwell's latest book: Talking to Strangers. It's a good read, if bleak and unsettling. One chapter of the book that really got my brain going was on the ability of humanity to "read" the emotions of others. (I cannot find online anywhere the work cited for Chapter 6: "The Friends Fallacy"—my library audiobook version didn't have it—so I'm talking about this from my untrustworthy memory)

Spike Rant: Cathy Weseluck is a treasure and I am very sad · 7:41am Oct 19th, 2019

Guys. Gals. Nonbinary pals. I’m going to be dramatic for a bit here because I’m writing this and I’m so sleep deprived and my anxiety is driving me nuts. And honestly, just skip this whole blog—it's just crazed Spike fan angst.

And and…


okay.

NPR Article is up · 6:28pm Aug 14th, 2019

I mentioned in my last blog post that there were a few interviews at Bronycon with my friend James from NPR. Unfortunately it looks like nothing actually got to air. And most of the interviews didn't get used. However James was able to get an article posted on NPR'S website.

Bronycon 2019, Tangents, NPR, Design, Lines, Shenanigans, but mostly rambling · 5:09am Aug 6th, 2019

Against all odds, I actually went to Bronycon this year.

Though it's a little strange. Being able to attend Bronycon feels like an absurd luxury I didn't expect to ever afford. I guess I'm just so used to being the one that says: Well I'm glad those other people had such a nice time that it feels incredibly strange to get to participate. And it feels wrong for me to go to something that so many others can't go at all.

I'm going to Bronycon(!) Please say hi :3 · 6:19am Jul 30th, 2019

Hey guys,

I just wanted to give a heads up that my wife and I are somehow going to all four days of Bronycon. I didn’t think it was possible but it’s HAPPENING! WOOOO!!!

I would love to hang out/chat with any of y’all that follow me. Honestly, you wonderful people know far more about me than most of the people I interact with on a day-to-day basis.

There is a pic of us below, unless you’d prefer not to know what we look like.

EFNW 2019 Retrospective · 6:57am May 26th, 2019

I managed to make it to Everfree Northwest this year and it was an absolute blast! 



This was my first brony con (besides Crystal Mountain Pony Con) I’d ever been to and it was surprisingly worth the trip!


Main highlights:
