"I can't believe this!" Q screamed in frustration. "I can." Charlie stared dolefully over the city, looking for all the world as though he'd chosen to perch in the kudzu monster that was currently, and excruciatingly slowly, digesting them. Kudzu vines tangled across their chests constricting every movement and subtly dragging them to the Mokudzu's … Continue reading The Meandering Adventures of Q and Charlie: Mo’ or Less Kudzu
The plan was for me to be set for life with a stable career and income and the security and future that comes with it. But uh... Well...I'm still processing it. But, instead of me lying in bed curled up in a ball, terrified by the unknown, uncontrollable future and my place within it like I have … Continue reading Welp, that didn’t go as planned.
That I didn't think of beforehand. In my eagerness to get my idea "out there", I failed to visualize the characters. I know what they're like personality-wise, but I don't have solid characteristics for the characters physically. Perhaps because I thought I had more time. So that's what I'm giving myself. Time.

So here's what I'll do. I'm going to rewrite number 33. "Meet Charlie", the way I see it in my head, but as text. And I hope you'll tell me what you think!

I'm leaning towards Thursdays, but I may find that another day works better. But yeah, I apologize. … Continue reading Apologies!

It kills me. But no. I may not be perfect … Continue reading 32. Perfectionism
It's been a year, if not longer, and grad school has whipped my tail. I'm making myself take a break from everything about it. A break from stressing about it. A break from obsessing about it. Whatever is going to happen is going to happen, and it's out of my hands now. I wish I … Continue reading 31. Something.
