[Life] In Progress

I keep waiting and waiting to update this, because I don’t think that consistently doing so would make for much in the way of news.

Currently entering my junior year of college. Nearing the end of my second novel. I’m writing lyrics and experimenting with music on the side because I want to be able to venture out further with confidence that I can do anything that I set my mind to. I may end changing my college major, though. I do enjoy foreign languages, but I don’t think it’s a job that I want to do for the rest of my life.

2015 has been pretty horrible to me; nothing but a bevy of injuries, missed opportunities and ruined friendships. I won’t put any expectations on 2016, though.

Let come what may, and I’ll handle it my way.

Summer Break!!!!

Whoo! It’s been a while, hasn’t it? I’ve been a bit busy lately. I won a poetry contest that was sponsored by the college I attend (I had no idea I was going to be in it until after I walked in late from taking a test). I’ll link you to the poem I wrote that won below!

I’ve also been working on a few novellas that will be expanding the view of the Anteran and Aetherian universes. They will provide back stories and insight to characters both old and new. Since I’m out of school and searching for a part time job, I figure that in the mean time this is something that I will be focusing my time on. One of the novellas will be free, while the other one will be $1.99. They won’t be released in full until September, while the second book in the Firewing series will be released in October.
Also, let me apologise for being away for too long. I’ve been a busy birdy, haha.

The first chapters of each novella will also be linked below.

Busy Busy Birdy

Hey guys, it’s been quite a minute hasn’t it?

At least, that’s what this feels like. Things are moving ever so slowly, but time moves at an alarming rate no matter what it feels like it may be doing. This is the fourth month since the release of my first novel (reminder that it is available at Amazon), and there have been a lot of people that tell me that they enjoy it, and want to know what direction I’m going in in the future. As a writer, I can’t exactly divulge and give away any of the plot, so they normally receive the “You’ll have to wait and see like everyone else,” bit.

I’m back in school also, so that’s something that’s going to keep me motivated to do better by myself as a person, in and out of those brick laden walls. I didn’t have any friends I could hang with, being new to this state, but a few people did actually want me to do some extra curricular activities with them, I’m never nervous, so we managed to hit it off easily.

I’m ready for 2015. Throw everything you have at me, I’m still going to come out on top. I have goals in place to make this year perfect, and I can only hope that the perfection virus is contagious and spreads through the internet to you.

Peace and Love ❤

Serenity.

It’s been a couple of days since my last post, mostly due to the fact that I’d been studying for Finals Week. It’s almost always hell, worrying about what your final grades are going to be. It’s akin to being lost in the woods with daylight waning at your back. The panic sets in slowly, and begins to pump through your veins like a slow poison. The day before the finals, it ends up making it to your brain, and caressing it slowly like a dark lover before you walk in the door to the final test of that stressful, emotionally driven semester.

I mean, that’s how it was for me anyway. Crazy college stuff.

Finals? What A Week.

It has been a while since I’ve felt like this.

“FINALS WEEK IS HERE! WOO!”

Woo. Except I’m not feeling the woo. Haha. Between work, writing and school, I think I’ve gotten five hours of sleep at max. That’s alright. I’m going to sleep through the weekend (and by that I mean I’ll sleep in between writing sessions).

The aspirations of a writer should never cease to be a top priority in life. I love every moment I get to look at something and analyze it to the point where I can weigh its soul in my palms.

Field of Dreams

There’s an interesting assignment for a Final in my English course that my teacher set up. The question is this: What field do you plan on going into when you graduate?

As a college student, we know that this is something that could change on a daily basis within a number of reasons. We could change the destination for practicality, or for dream related thoughts. That’s the beauty and the bane of being in college at such a young age: You have no real destination, because most of the time, you have no idea what it is you want to do. I say I want to be a Translator/Interpreter, but I love to write. Do you travel down the road of dreams, or the highway of practicality?
