Took me long enough, right? I’ve only had this domain set up for weeks. I’ve had a post sitting in draft mode on my old blog for… longer than that.

Wow. I said it. “Old blog.”

It’s officially the end of one era (which, let’s be honest, was a very sporadically-updated era, at best) and the beginning of a new one.

I’m trying something new. I’m challenging myself to blog (at LEAST) once per week. And go upward from there.

Starting with this post.

It’s taken me a while to write this post, primarily because I wasn’t sure what I wanted from this blog. Ten years ago (holy shit, I’m able to write that without rounding up and I want something liquor-related now), I could blog like nobody’s business. I wrote everything and anything that came to mind. I had absolutely no filter.

I like to say I haven’t changed much, but in truth… I have. I’ve learned what opinions I have and don’t have, and whether or not it’s important that I voice them. When I voice them, though…

I still have no filter. But it’s situationally appropriate… usually. (I make no claims about random shouts of “fuckwaffle”, apropos of nothing. Those can happen.)

I craft things. Mostly because we’re poor and I’ve got a skill for doing things with my hands. Sometimes I do pretty things. I try to sell them because electric bills suck.

I write things… still? Again? I took a long break. I didn’t start writing again until I stumbled across (brace yourselves, everyone, we’re entering a Name Drop) Zac Levi’s Nerd Machine.  I got to volunteer two years in a row, and it was the best experience of my life. I’d been struggling with anxiety and being a hermit and allowing my life to just roll on by… And then I got drawn into interacting with people again. People who seemed to have the same wacky sense of humor I did and didn’t mind hearing me babble about my insane bursts of creativity. By the end of Nerd HQ 2012, I was racing home to plant my ass in front of a computer and start a project I hadn’t attempted in almost 20 years:  I was going to write a novel.

Cut to two years later, and I have three half-finished novels, two of which are each intended to be the beginning of their own series. Because I have mental masochism or something.

I’ve always been a creative person. I’ve always loved to write. When I was a kid, I wanted to act and sing. I still do, but I figure I’ll tackle one personal renovation at a time. (Or five. Five sounds doable.)

So that’s what this blog is for. I’m going to be creative here. I will randomly muse things, post snippets of my writings, announce when I craft something new for the store (which will be its own page here, as soon as I find time to putter around with the design layout thingie), and generally geek the hell out.

You’re welcome to join me.

I will probably say fuckwaffle a lot.

Thank you for understanding.

One thought on “

  1. Haha. Fuckwaffle. Porbably not best to randomly blurt that out in public. Ill still stick with skittlefarts and boogersnatches as my random scream in the middle of a busy Wal-Mart which only has two registers open. However, I do look forward to reading more. Get on it chick! Those stories bouncing around in the old dome will certainly not write themselves. Oh yea….that is what Dragon is for. Hehehhe.
