I think I’m going to try to become an ML for NaNoWriMo once I move to Seattle. I really enjoyed participating last year, but I think it might even be more fun to organize meet-ups, write-ins, and discussions about writing. 

there’s something charming, sometimes, about a bed that sits on the floor. i don’t know why, and i certainly don’t think that it’s inherently telling. but it often gives the impression that maybe a person doesn’t have their shit completely together. i like that. 

achin-q shush: Wowowowowowow. Your blog. Perf. That's all I can say.



Gray skies and steady rain
calm me.
The cold is a welcome invitation
to wrap my hands
around a warm coffee mug.
Beyond my window,
the rain glistens like stardust
collecting on the dark leaves
of young redwoods.

The forest seems deeper when wet. 

NaNoWriMo is Over!

I went away to a no wi-fi cabin for Thanksgiving so I didn’t get the chance to update, but here’s the good news: I hit my 50k! Actually, 53k! :) Having the distraction of wi-fi gone really helped.

Happy to say I won NaNo since I’m doing heavy loads of school at the same time! I’m looking to actually rewrite most of the first half of what I’ve written—too many plot holes, unfortunately—but at least I got a shit ton of work done for my story.

I wonder how many other people are doing fantasy??? I want to draw my main characters and share them on this blog. Sooooon. My leads: Lark, the frightened fighter. Sadi, the loyal friend. Daiman, the demon prince. Sen Haruk, the trainer. Caleb, the traitor. Bodach, the last elf. Marin, the injured merman.
