Sound advice from someone who's been a HUGE influence on me.....

As those of you who know me know, I'm a huge, HUGE fan of Mr Neil Gaiman, and his lovely and amazing wife, Amanda Palmer.

Now, I'm not really one to be too bothered by my nocturnal emissions, as dreams are just something that happens.  We don't know why, nor do we know where they come from.  We just know that it's our brain's way of...... processing things, I guess?

Well, one night a few weeks ago, I was laying in bed, sleeping, comfy, minding my own business, and I had what started out to be a really terrible nightmare, but turned out to be one of the most profound experiences I've ever been fortunate enough to have.

Not a techie, but...... I DID IT.

Remember Geocities?  And then one day, Yahoo bought them out, and then not long after that, Geocities was taken down.  A distant memory..

The Five Problems I Have With Social Media

It's the “Digital Age.” Just about everything is done online anymore. Since the inception of things like Facebook, Instagram, Myspace, other venues (I remember back when I was in my early 20s, and the internet was still fairly new, there was a forum I used to go on pretty frequently called wbs.net), it's brought people who are worlds away from our humble little homes right into our living rooms/dining rooms/wherever you access the internet. Everything's right at our fingertips these days. While this is good and fun and a great way to pass time (or in my situation, procrastinate! Ha ha), there is a downside.

Memories of Times Long Gone (x-posted on Scriggler under "T Rea")

I'm not going to talk about my earliest memory, that's too personal to share with just anyone. HOWEVER, I am willing to share a couple of my happier memories from childhood.

Tobias (fiction)

My name is Tobias. I'm 14 years old, and I don't like to talk much, because my Mom hit me in the face when I was 10 with a baseball bat and it left me with a serious speech impediment that I get bullied for constantly. It sucks, but what can you do, right?

Hilary (fiction)

The heavy black and blue winter sky was thick with rain clouds that, at any moment, were about to open and empty their contents upon the crowded streets during rush hour.  Hilary was the only one seemingly concerned about the impending storm.

Comparison between two people - (fiction)

JoAnn likes to have a quiet corner where she can focus.  She can't handle a lot of commotion.  It's easiest for her to be in a place where you can hear mice breathing, so she can get her thoughts out.  Sometimes, it's hard to concentrate past the sound of the keys clicking away on the typewriter.

Gearing up for JuNoWriMo!

I'm counting it down....  Not long now....  Just a few more days, and I'll be full-force involved in my writing.  I'm participating in three writing projects this year:  JuNoWriMo in June, Camp NaNoWriMo in July, and NaNoWriMo in November.

Hello there! Welcome! Come right on in!

Thanks so much for stopping by to my humble little hole in space!
