Mental Health and Medications

I’ve been gone for a while but I’ll hopefully come back soon. Some stuff happened in my everyday life that’s kept me super busy and I haven’t been blogging like I should. But this is something that needed to be put down. For the last 2.5-3 months, I’ve been on new medications. I had resisted […]

Self Care After Critique Sessions

If you’re at all serious about writing, you’re going to need a critique session at some point. Those sessions are what helps you pick out what’s wrong with your project before you start burning through your list of agents and publishers. But it can hurt. In fact, they might be holding back if it doesn’t. […]

Hypocrites and Problematic Faves

I’m a bad feminist. I care about women’s issues and I do notice sexist crap, but I’m much more likely to shake my head and roll my eyes if I like everything else about the person/movie/game/etc being sexist. I won’t deny myself time with someone I enjoy based solely on their problematic views on equality, […]

What is Art

When you breathe, you take in oxygen put out by plants. It is a collaborative effort by all the plants to provide oxygen to the animals. As a single person, you take in some part of the collaborative effort of those plants and you change it inside you and breathe out carbon dioxide, which joins […]

To Blog Post or Not To Blog Post?

I believe that writers have a responsibility to share their truth and life experiences with their readers. Herman Melville wrote long sections of whaling history into Moby Dick and James Joyce made inside jokes in dead languages. Nowadays, we tend to write blogs, which leaves our works open for only the truly relevant information. But […]

Self-Compassion

One of my biggest weaknesses is being able to show myself compassion. I’m almost delusional in my readiness to brush off a friend’s faults, but I’ll bully myself for the same ones. I try to change my inner hatred but I always end up in the same place. I refuse to believe that a friend […]

Representation

Dear Straight, White, Able-bodied Cis-Men : you’re good. We like you just fine and none of our requests for Women, LGBT or POC representation is out of hatred for you. What we’re really asking for is a culture where the main character could be you but doesn’t have to be. We’re asking for a culture […]

Solo Adventures

The best way to build a relationship is to create shared experiences. Friendships strengthen and romance blooms when you do things together. But there’s a more important relationship than the one with your friends and loved ones: your relationship with yourself. Granted, you don’t have to try to create experiences with yourself. The kind of […]

How to Respond When Someone’s Anxious

From an evolutionary perspective, our brains do not like to be satisfied with what we have. Our brains also like to prepare us for things that might happen in the future. Sometimes, these two functions go crazy and a person ends up with ANXIETY. In more severe cases, an Anxiety Disorder. Anxiety is like the […]

The Art of Asking – A Review

When I was in high school, Coin Operated Boy was one of my favorite songs. I don’t know how it happened, but I somehow only listened to the Dresden Dolls for a short time before they disappeared into the ether of music I’d forgotten I loved. Years later, I see a bunch of mess on […]
