How to Care for your Sim and Ruin your Life 3

The day-to-day grind can be a bit of a slog sometimes. This is why so many of us turn to things which help us unwind at the end of the day, like books, TV, movies, and video games. These things break up the monotony and allow us to detach from […]


The Cowardice of Anonymity

For a long time, no one knew my real name on the Internet. I know what you’re thinking: “But that’s just good Internet safety practice!” And yes, that’s true. If you’re young or famous, it’s probably best to have a fake identity to participate in normal interactions on the Internet […]


Closing the Screen 2

I’m not the best at Twitter. I’m objectively not the worst, and I’ve certainly gotten better at it, but there’s a lot of room for improvement in there. As such, I don’t exactly get bombarded by notifications. Which is a little sad sometimes. But this is mostly my fault. I […]


Adventures in Looking Young 2

So You’re the Leader of a New Society on an Alien Planet. Now What? 1

I was surprised and honored recently to be nominated for the Liebster Award by A. S. Akkalon, who I don’t think realizes how motivating her support has been in my decision to revive this blog. The award is basically meant for relatively new bloggers to express themselves and possibly get […]


Best and Favorite 1

Ask me my what my favorite book is and I’ll say that’s easy: The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein. Ask me what the best book I’ve read is, and I’ll have to think a little longer. On the one hand, I could tell you the same […]


How to Take Advice

I’m bad at taking advice. I’ll give it freely, but if you give me an idea that makes me freeze up, I won’t even give it a second thought. For me to take advice seriously, one of two things have to happen: 1 – A bunch of other people have […]


Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes

If you’re looking for writing advice, there are better places to turn. Blogs and websites in general that post more often and have publishing credibility to back up their advice. If you’re here looking for writing advice or a new perspective on writing, you’ll find it, but keep in mind […]
