Reboot

Hey. So I haven’t made a blog post in a hot minute. It’s been about six months now and this break was originally only supposed to be a month, two tops. I was doing a sprint or whatever to finish my novel. And I did it. I finished it. I’m still editing but I finished the first draft and I was pumped about that— still am. I’m very happy with it and where it’s going. Continue reading “Reboot”

My Thoughts

Hi. So I’ve been mostly silent for a lot of reasons. I’ve found it very difficult to write much of anything creatively in the past few weeks for obvious reasons. If it wasn’t COVID-19 anxiety, it was sending myself spiraling into a hypochondriacal coma or, ya know, racial injustice. As a black man, a gay […]

How the Coronavirus Saved My Relationship With My Mother

If your daily droll resembles mine in the slightest, I’m sure it’s sixty percent coronavirus discussion, thirty percent anxiety, and ten percent trying to go on living your normal life before all this.

They’ve mostly either incoherent or nightmarish. Or incoherent nightmares. […]

This time, I’m trying to outline the entire thing before I even get started writing it. Which probably sounds like a no-brainer but I had a much different approach with […]

Where I’ve Been

I disappeared for a while. Here’s why. [TL;DR I found genuine happiness and suddenly nothing else mattered. Then I finally discovered that that wasn’t enough so here I am again. I’ll be posting here regularly again but not as frequently as I have up until now.] So I realized something the other day. This is […]

It Lies Up Above

“Belief is a telescope that nobody taught you how to hold.” This is a line from a song I found pretty recently. Music has just always been a very important and predominant part of my life so I’m happy to continually be influenced by it. When I heard this line, it hit pretty hard for […]

Whatever it Takes

Stumbled upon a gem this morning entitled The Reality of Writing for a Living Today by Laura Drake on the Writers in the Storm blog. Good read. Little bit of an eye opener. If you’re like me and have aspirations of publication, I’d say it’s well worth your time to peruse this article, as well […]
