It’s my 5-Year Indieversary!

On March 26 of 2016, I published my first Indie piece. It’s a superhero short story called “Second Sight.” 

In college, I was working on several comic book projects, and even tried my hand at drawing them. In the end, sequential-art storytelling just wasn’t for me. It takes me too long to write the story, draw everything, ink it, color it, etc. I decided sticking with prose was the best option for me to get out as many stories as I can (and there are so many of them swimming around in my head!). 

Back in 2016, I knew starting another series probably wasn’t the best idea, since at the time I was publishing two series with a traditional publishing house. But I also really wanted to dive into the Indie world. So, I wrote this little piece as an experiment. And readers loved it!

Creative Endeavors

I’ve heard people say, “Writing begets writing” (if you know the origin of this excellent quote, please let me know in the comments!). I find this to be absolutely true. For me, writing doesn’t just lead to more writing. It leads to more creativity in general.

Knitting Weather!

Knitting weather is finally here, and oh boy is it happening 😀 I just cast off the scarf I started last year (it was the last of a hat, wrist warmer, scarf set), and immediately cast on for a shawl. It’s my first time doing stripes, and I’m kind of…making it up as I go along. So far, so good, though! More pictures to come on that when I’m farther along.
