New Section: Superhero Musings

Back in the summer, I tried to make a superhero blog. I was going to dedicate it to reviews of superhero shows and movies. Unfortunately, I made all of two posts on that blog before abandoning it.
However, after last night’s Arrow episode, I have realized that I still have a lot to say about these shows, and since this blog is (relatively) active, I might as well add that content to this blog. I’m not sure what to call this section (everything clever I can think of is already taken), so for now I’ll label them as Superhero Musings.

The first entry in this new section will be posted later today.

Run Home Children: Updates

After five years of participating in NaNoWriMo, I finally “won” this year with my novel Run Home Children. I celebrated on December 1st with a bag of chocolate donuts and a night of binge-watching Jessica Jones.

Now comes the fun part. Typing up my story and making massive edits.

Luckily, I have the entire thing written out. Most, if not all, of the scenes of the book are written. There is a beginning, middle, and an end. At this point, I have a complete first draft. As this is the second time I have succeeded in such a feat, and the first where the book I completed is the first book in the series, I am ecstatic to be one step closer to having a novel published.

Look for more updates, and more chapters, for Run Home Children in the coming months!

Margaret Stories

Last semester I took a narration class (I’m planning on majoring in creative writing). We wrote a small collection of short stories, and as I wrote I tended toward writing from the first person POV of the same girl. She seemed to have similar characteristics as Margaret, one of the characters from my fantasy series, so I’ve dubbed them (quite uncreatively) the Margaret Stories. I have a creative writing class this semester as well, where about half of my stories are/will be Margaret Stories, so as I write/edit those I’ll post them here, all with the tag “Margaret Stories”. I’ll post the others too, one at a time, with the tag “short stories”.
