Welcome! My site is undergoing some changes, mostly some long-overdue organization, but my blog is still available, just click the Plot Bunnies link in the navigation bar!


And A Star To Sail Her By…

Greetings! Salutations! Thank you for reading my shiny new blog, whether you stumbled upon it accidentally or were referred here by a friend (in which case, thank your friend for me, too)! Starting a blog is both easy and hard at the same time, but the hard part is figuring out how I’m going to get started. Seems like everyone and their mother has something to say about the world these days.

Sure, I want to write about writing, write some writing, and then dabble in the writing process, reviews, and even discuss how the process is affecting me personally. But that’s hardly the most interesting hook, is it? Well, since no one has called me on my Caerbannog reference yet, I can assume no one is paying much attention. I get that. I’m new, what’ve I got to offer? Well, I shall tell you. No limits.

One of the best things about being an author is that you can comment on just about anything and not get the backlash of the world like the proverbial swinging door hitting you on the ass on the way out. But I don’t need to comment on today’s high or low points, plenty of people have something to say about that, and most of them are certain they’re correct. Well, good for you. Nice to know there exists a niche where people are correct. I shan’t say some of what I think about you all, but only because I don’t want to discourage readers who might fall into that category.

What then, is my appeal? I tell you, I comment on the future. What will humanity be like in a hundred years? Will we even resemble the humanity of the last decade? I may write fantasy a good deal, with magic helping out the characters both for and against the hero, but there’s always been forces working both for and against us. Personally, professionally, or as a society. Just because I tell stories in fantastical settings doesn’t mean there wasn’t an opinion driving the plot.

I hope you enjoy some fun prompt writing I’ll be working on to build my blog out into something more meaningful. Until then, thank you for reading, and watch out for the plot bunnies. They’re spawning left and right and I warn you… they bite.
