Hello Everyone! A bit of a break from the normal schedule, but I wanted to provide an update on book 3 of The Legend of Nariko series. It’s been about two years since the second book, The Legend of Nariko: The Goddess Prophecy was published and since then I’ve fallen into pretty bad lows of … Continue reading Author Update: Back on Track (Mostly)
Hello Everyone! I hope you all had a great holiday season! Mine was a bit more chaotic than I had hoped but it was still a good time with friends and family. That being said, I did miss a few goals I had set for myself, one of which is the “Top 5 Characters of … Continue reading A Renewed Focus on What Matters
Hello everyone, It’s been a bit of a while since I’ve given a general update on how the writing is going and with the holidays coming up, it felt like a good time to discuss. This is a bit more of a candid update as things have been rather difficult to manage these days. Inktober … Continue reading Author Update: Very Behind and Struggling.
Hello Everyone! Inktober was quite the slog, a lot more intense than I initially imagined. I’m not sure if that’s because I’ve become slower as an artist or that my drawings have become more complex compared to last year. But it was a very encouraging month as it really pushed me to my creative limits. … Continue reading Return from Hiatus and What I Learned
One of the things that’s really started to affect me when it comes to achieving my goals is my inability to focus on something for a long time. I could start writing or drawing and I would be productive but it wouldn’t last for long. It got to the point where I would be happy, … Continue reading Focus & Discipline: Feeling Overwhelmed and how I’m working through it
This is something I’ve been pondering about for quite a while now as a person of colour myself. There’s been so much discourse around the idea of diversity in storytelling be it in books, movies, tv shows and video games that the arguments tend to revolve around the same ideas. Many have argued that the … Continue reading Story Musings: Diversity and Representation in Storytelling
Hello everyone! Now that we’re arriving into the fall season, it’s only three months before Christmas. It occurred to me that I most likely will not be able to have The Legend of Nariko: Hellfire Rising published and ready for Christmas. Truth be told it was a rather depressing realization and something I was really … Continue reading Author Update: Missing Deadlines and Re-evaluating Timelines and Goals
Hello Everyone! I was originally planning to do another book review today but, for some reason, the 9th book in the Harley Merlin series has become a lot harder to find. It’s no longer on Amazon or kindle and it doesn’t seem to be available through Chapters as well. I tried buying another book off … Continue reading Author Update: Renewed invigoration from an unlikely source.
Too much of a good thing can often be a bad thing. It’s a matter of excess and unnecessary material that bogs down an otherwise great thing. In the case of stories, this can be moments that feel more like filler rather than adding to the overall story. It’s something I often think about with … Continue reading Story Musing – Story Length
Hello Everyone! Been feeling like a bit of a broken record saying this, but this year has felt particularly exhausting when it comes to trying to return to a sense of normalcy and routine. It’s felt like any work that I’ve done this year has been rather aimless in what I’ve been working towards. That … Continue reading Aimless Progression
