I’ve never made a fiction zine before, which is weird because I love reading and writing fiction, so I decided to get on that. A “fox wedding” (or “coyote wedding,” or “[insert trickster god here] wedding”) is a common name for a sun shower. You know, when it’s storming and sunny at the same time. … More New Zine: Fox Wedding #1
…and not just because of NaNoWriMo. I have a couple of zines and some short stories and all kinds of stuff I’d love to wrap up soon. I seem to have at least two different modes for writing. One is all professional and deadline-oriented and trying to be publishable. The other is passionate and fun, … More November is Writerly
It took months, for some reason, but I finally made it to the copy shop and re-printed two of my zines: “Loudly Dancing” and “Robbie Queers It Up.” My Etsy shop is now carrying these titles once again! Links Loudly Dancing (a collection of autobiographical mico-essays about avoidant personality disorder and adventures in mental healthcare) Robbie … More Zine Shop Restocked!
A Lonely Riot Magazine was kind enough to publish my short story Gabriel this morning. I wrote the first draft of this story two or three years ago, and I was starting to worry it would never find a good home. It’s not exactly horror or a crime story, but it’s a little dark and violent for … More New Story: “Gabriel”
…you can read some of mine in the new issue of Sixfold! They were kind enough to run three poems of mine – “So Loved the World,” “Seances,” and “Grocery stores make me feel mentally ill.” You can see all three by clicking here. This was my first time submitting to Sixfold, and I loved … More If you like poems…
I returned from a trip to Edinburgh, Scotland a few days ago. I fully intend to make a zine about the experience, but first I need to sort through the trip and try to figure out some kind of narrative arc. I guess I could just slap together some photos and anecdotes, but I’d prefer … More Edinburgh
Like a lot of people who enjoy writing, I experience a certain amount of angst about whether or not I’ve earned the right to go around telling people, “I’m a writer.” I try to write daily. I’ve had pieces I wrote posted in online journals. I finished a damn novella the other day, but is … More A Writer (For Real)
Or at least a rough draft of one. According to Google Docs, I created this project on September 7, 2014, just shy of two years ago. It’s about 27,000 words, meaning I wrote about 2,250 words per month. Clearly I am not a fast writer, but I kept plugging along. It’s called “The Wide, Mad … More I Wrote a Novella!
My favorite notebook is vintage horror comic themed. I love it so much that it’s been sitting on my desk for about a year and I haven’t written a word in it. I feel like it deserves to be filled with the best words I can come up with, spooky and weird and thoroughly original … More Notebooks
