An Update on the Blog

Hey, guys. So I've been doing a pretty crappy job of writing here. I'm going to be straight with y'all. I don't always have the most free time to devote to this site. Plus, these past few months have been extremely hard for me personally (maybe I'll explain that more in a blog someday, but today is not … Continue reading An Update on the Blog

How to Deal When You’re Busy and Tired, And There’s Nothing You Can Do About It

Sometimes All the Things just pile up at once, and you feel like you're in a constant state of running yourself ragged.

It’s Totally a Real Job: Amy Ratcliffe, Writer

Advice You Don’t Hear When You Start a Blog–But You Should

I, like many of us, started blogging in the magical world of Livejournal and Xanga, offering up to the mystical world of the internet my adolescent musings and pubescent tales of love and embarrassment (often the latter). I have always loved writing, and even though the idea of putting my own words out there for … Continue reading Advice You Don’t Hear When You Start a Blog–But You Should

5 Fandom Friday: Blog Goals for 2015

Things have been scarce around here, and I am so sorry about that. With work, my studio's production of The Nutcracker, and starting my first official month as a writer for Cinema Blend, I've had next to no free time.
