Sometimes the best way forward is to stay still. I've had a hard time writing lately--not because of any scene or writer's block though. I know what happens, I'm enthusiastic about writing what's happening, and I'm ready to be done with this book, which means I'm motivated to just power through. But there's a bit … Continue reading The Force, The Fan Art, and Your Billiard Rack
Apparently they make 52 of these things a year? Who knew? Sorry, y'all. Holiday season has just begun but it's comin' for me. Here is a soothing song to help you, in case you are also stressing out about how to fit work, social commitments and family gatherings in at the same time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UfcAVejslrU … Continue reading It’s Been a Week? Again??
Another year writing this blog! How time flies when you're having fun. With American Thanksgiving just behind us, I'd like to thank all of you who read the blog and/or page. I really like writing this series, but the most enjoyment I get is when we share things together. Whether it's those who go out … Continue reading Happy All The Days
It's the middle of the Dark Times, the period between All Hallow's and the Winter Solstice. You've been fighting for weeks now against incursions on your sanity--be they supernatural or just the soul-sucking combination of Daylight Savings Time and year end responsibilities. Now it's time for the greatest fight yet--a holiday with family. True, this … Continue reading The Banisher Guide to Surviving the Holidays
Welp, it's ridiculous to talk about the world if it had fewer weapons in it, so instead let's talk about what we do with the weapons we have. I think most people just don't understand the real beauty of weapons. When you get hold of something that can be a weapon, you not only get … Continue reading Weapon Magic
I can teleport. I don't often tell this to people, because it is uncomfortable for me, and it's not terribly useful. I am no soldier, trained to reorient myself immediately upon shifting reality. It just means I get to be dazed and bewildered in a slightly different location than I'd previously inhabited. It's really not that … Continue reading I’ve Solved All Of Science, You Can Go Home Now
Happy Halloweekend! I hope your season of frights is going well! I've sung Halloween songs, gotten sick on candy, screamed in terror, heard some truly impressive cackling, and been hit on by Bellatrix Lestrange, so I'm doing pretty well for myself, I think. This is just a quick post today, first to thank my contributors … Continue reading We Weren’t Kissing. Have A Book.
I think I'm a wizard, Harry. There really aren't many other supportable options. I'm a firm believer that nothing happens by coincidence, and I seem to have symptoms that much wiser minds than mine have more or less universally decided herald the passing of some sort of sorcerer. No electronics may withstand me. Lights in … Continue reading Don’t Be a Witch
I need you to sit down and listen. Are you sitting? Good. Summer and Lia are women. And... Millenials. I feel better getting that off my chest. I hope you're not too shocked. Because there does seem to be a lot of shock going around, doesn't there? A man in power used his position to … Continue reading The Shocking Secret of Millenials and Women
October is a busy month, everyone. We should probably pull a Caesar and add a thirteenth month just so that October can catch a break. Suddenly everyone's done with strawberries and watermelons and now it's all about gourds and dead grass things. People want to rock flannel like they just descended from the Rockies with … Continue reading October is for (Art) Lovers
