Why I Write LGBTQ+ Characters

LGBTQ pride flag
  1. While I am not a person who identifies as LGBTQ+, I do identify as an ally. I’m very passionate about LGBTQ+ rights, and read and think about these issues a great deal.
  2. I have friends who are LGBTQ+. I fully love and support every one of them.

On Editing a Book

Hello, dear reader!

For those of you who don’t know, I finished writing a sci-fi book. I finally figured out the title, which I’ll keep a secret until I’m ready to publish it.

I’m enjoying typing out what I’ve written, and have found that my chapters are much longer than I remember. (No wonder I have only like twenty-seven chapters in my book!)

Writing Goals 2020

Hello, there!

Recently, I’ve been listening to the podcast Write Now by Sarah Werner. In one of her podcasts, she talks about forming writing goals and sticking to them. One of her suggestions is to pick a number, like a certain number of pages, or a certain word count, and sticking to this reasonable goal.

I like the idea of wanting to write 200 words every day. It’s a manageable amount. It’s not too terrifying, and yet it’s doable.

On Finishing Writing a Book

Today, I’m working on finishing the sci-fi novel I started a year ago.

It feels weirdly surreal that I’m going to be writing the last chapter, the last sentence, and the last words shared between my two male leads. Their relationship has grown as I’ve grown in numbering my pages, to the point where it feels like I’ve written a realistic couple. My understanding of the alien language and the magic structure has become more in-depth than what it was when I started out.

On Writing

I’ve loved writing ever since I could form letters. Ever since I knew how to formulate stories through play.

As a child, I loved telling stories with my Beanies, Crazy Bones in the sandbox, and German animals. (I’ve played with so many toys; these are the top three.)
