September 2018 Update

It’s been a busy year! I’ve switched full time jobs, resumed my graduate studies at OSU, and renewed my goals for creativity. There is also good news coming for The Magnolia Review, which I can’t share yet.

I’ve started a Dream Book, my term for a book that collects my lists and dreams in one place. A place to explore ideas and to return to them later. I chose a handmade book made by Meagan Meli, because the cover says, “Here lies my thoughts undone, Started many, finished none.” Which both makes me laugh and makes me want to see if I can finish more than none.

Inktober is coming! As is NaNo (National Novel Writing Month). I’ve decided to do a science-fiction novel project this year.

My goal is to write 100 letters and share them on The Letter Project. Here is 25 and 26.

I’ve also decided to tackle my various comic project ideas, and just practice making comics in general.

My writing focus will be on revising a traditional novel, drawing ASHES: THE GRAPHIC NOVEL, and writing my new NaNo novel project.

I’ve also been reading quite a bit, and I’ve read 95 books so far this year. It’s nice to be back in the reading swing of things!

Until next time, and be creative,


Tiny Letter

I started a Tiny Letter Account, if you’d like to sign up for a short update on my creative projects.
