I said I'd do it before, but this time I'm serious.

Time to get writing. Expect loads of stuff soon.

Something I Noticed · 10:45pm Sep 26th, 2014

Something I've noticed for a long time now is that, of the "good" or popular stories on the site, a lot of them try and use tried and tried again writing techniques to add profundity to their writing. It's always something like, say, a character going "right?" at the end of a thought they had, or when prose stops a paragraph, then in the next one uses a really short line like "I wish I was at home right now.".

Ahhhhh · 10:18pm Aug 29th, 2014

After a few days of hard work, money scrimping and general frustration/exhaustion, I'm finally ready to move out for university. And not only that, but in addition to the $5,000 I earned through scholarships, I got a bit more from the government for free.

Coffee · 8:20pm Aug 21st, 2014

I'm stuck at the Toronto Pearson Airport for the next 90 minutes, is anyone free nearby? Wouldn't mind if you wanted to share a coffee or something here.

Music · 7:06am Aug 18th, 2014

‘Yes yes, I know that you bunch can make very nice music,’ Gazer said as the Players laid their instruments down. ‘But I want to hear life. I want to see sounds. I want to hear sights. I want to smell—well, no, I don’t want to smell anything besides the newly refurbished seats in this amphitheatre.'

The Dancer is coming soon. It's getting oh so close to the grand finale—and boy, there are some big things ahead. Stay tuned.

A Question · 8:04pm Aug 13th, 2014

Would you pay to commission stories from me? Not saying I'll do it, I just want to know—and this is a serious question, mind you. The money I need for university made me think about that.

And before you ask, I'm not going to do something silly like put a donation jar up. I'm too proud to just let a bunch of strangers do that.

Just curious, folks. Dancer will be coming along sooner than you think.

Well · 3:58am Aug 2nd, 2014

I was working on writing, and then I got a notice about my OSAP funding (Ontario Student Assistance Program). Long story short, I'm going to have to do a lot of writing of the form kind to try and get some funding for university—as it is, things aren't looking too good since it's so late, and it's entirely possible that interest-free funding might not come or it might come in a small piece of what I have to pay.

I Did It. · 10:02pm Aug 1st, 2014

After many months of no writing, hardly any inspiration and lotsa vidya, I finally found it. I broke my lull and found some inspiration. As per usual, it came from music. Expect writing soon.

The two songs that really did it were:

I mean, if I really put my mind to it, I can write whenever. I just never really had the need or the passion to do so, but here it is. Dancer awaits.
