[Blog Update] Chapter 5 And 6 Complete

This morning I finished the sixth chapter of my book. With a combination of work, business, my brother's wedding, and my own anxiety I haven't felt like writing. Turns out all I had to do was get sick for my inspiration to come back. It also brought me to the realization that I like parts … Continue reading [Blog Update] Chapter 5 And 6 Complete

Day 25 [Photography] Audience Wanted

This was taken with a Canon Rebel also from the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento. It's called "Audience Wanted" for obvious reasons. I think we seek symmetry when we pursue balance. To be similar to others in a world where everyone is unique. .

Day 22 [Photography]: “The Totem”

  This was taken with a Canon Rebel in the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento. I was there about a month ago to basically feel out how I felt about living in Sacramento. Something about visiting this museum really sealed the deal on wanting to move there. This mask in particularly stood out to me. Just … Continue reading Day 22 [Photography]: “The Totem”

Day 21 [Photography]: “A Moment Of Calm”

Shot way too late at night with a Canon Rebel. The model is a my friend Elle from the band Angel Sap. I really want to do a less improvised shoot with her and something that's a little more representative of her personality and style. She also happens to have an amazing voice so check … Continue reading Day 21 [Photography]: “A Moment Of Calm”

Day 20 [Reflection]: Sinking Below Good Enough

Between one and ten, with ten being unbearably painful, how much does it hurt to be a writer? Today, it was about a six. Enough to grit my teeth and maybe entertain giving up but no where close to being ready to do it. Enough to put a damper on my day without totally ruining … Continue reading Day 20 [Reflection]: Sinking Below Good Enough

Day 19 [Novel Progress]: Value Matters More Than Word Count Right?

I'm tired of 'funny' comments in writing communities about struggling with writing enough. Sure I believe in writer's block to a point, but something about this progress driven mentality is not sitting well with me. Yes I believe sitting down and writing something, anything at all, has helped make writing a priority. But what's helped … Continue reading Day 19 [Novel Progress]: Value Matters More Than Word Count Right?

Day 15 [Reflection] You should love words, but do so carefully. 

Life would be simpler if bad choices felt bad and the good ones, good. We wouldn't need things like discipline and restraint. I think a part of me, and a part of a lot of people, wonders if it's possible to live within the confines of discipline and restraint and be happy. One of the … Continue reading Day 15 [Reflection] You should love words, but do so carefully. 

Day 14 [Reflection] Just Plain Tired

I didn't sleep well last night, and as expected my mind's been all over the place. Distracted, a drift and childish. The spiritual hangover for a manic weekend full of friends, fun, and creative inspiration. It was worth it I think, but it gave me some time to think. When I think of fiction, I … Continue reading Day 14 [Reflection] Just Plain Tired

[Day 9][Weird Fitness]: Training Like My Protagonist

This morning was a dream come true. I actually woke up before my alarm went off at 5 AM. Granted I didn't spring in to action but lying in my warm and comfortable bed and reading was pretty awesome. Especially after the whirlwind that was yesterday, but at least it was a fun whirlwind. Which … Continue reading [Day 9][Weird Fitness]: Training Like My Protagonist
