It’s a rather grey, cloudy day here in New Hampshire. I can see some bright blue sky peeking through here and there, but for the most part everything feels soft and drowsy. I don’t entirely mind – I’ve got a cup of hot Earl Grey, I’m listening to some quiet jazz, and I’m pondering where… Continue reading Supporting Actively
So the first section of the binder (see the June 5th blog) I’ve decided to tackle is the Countries of the World portion! It’s been a nice way to ease back into the creative process, as most of what I write has little to know bearing on the narrative. I can always change and adapt… Continue reading SMERP.
Hello all six(plus?!) of you! Katie and I are back from our anniversary vacation and coinciding chest colds! Good stuff, good stuff. It actually was a very nice, albeit short, vacation. We stayed at a fantastic Japanese-style bed and breakfast (Ryokan), bathhouse and all, in rural Connecticut. It gave us time to decompress and relax,… Continue reading Back to the Grind (Slow, slow grind)
Hey everybody! Aiden here. It’s been a while since my last update. I’ve just finished the music for Lulach Beryl: Magical Intern episode 10! Very exciting. It took me a super long time to actually get around to it. It does mean that it should be posted within a week, barring another unfortunate deletion incident.… Continue reading Bleep Bloop Blog
Hello dear readers, Katie here. Have you heard of the 100 Day Project? It’s a fantastic project sort of like National Novel Writing Month, but for artists and creative-types, and over the course of 100 days starting in April instead of just the one month of November. I decided today that I want to participate,… Continue reading 100 Day Project 2018
Hey Readers, I know it’s been a while since I’ve written anything. Sorry about that. Been dealing with a few setbacks, both minor and less minor. Living in New England, we’re no stranger to severe weather, and this is the time of year we get it. Over the past 2 weeks we’ve had 3 Nor’Easters,… Continue reading Barely Contained Mayhem
So. Howdy. How are you all doing? It’s been quite a while. I’ll be honest, I’ve been having a hard time writing this blog post. I’ve kind of been avoiding it, and I’m not sure why. At first it was because I was intent on doing a bunch of research on the comics I wanted… Continue reading A Little Bit of Honesty
Happy New Year, folks! I’m gonna keep this quick because there’s a huge storm here in New Hampshire, and I’m not sure if our power is going to get knocked out. As is customary when a new year rolls around, Aiden and I talk about what we’ve accomplished in the past year and what we… Continue reading New Year, New Goals!
Hey, folks! Today I’d like to share with you a revelation I’ve had recently. Writing is hard! What the heck! When I was younger, stories and ideas came as easily to me as breathing. I wrote all the time, going through multitudes of college-ruled notebooks. Granted, I rarely finished these stories. I wrote down just… Continue reading Writing is…hard??
Good morning, dear readers! I can’t remember if I’ve written on this before, but I’m going to do it anyway! I think a lot about the balance of critique versus kindness, both in my job as an academic advisor for adult learners and in my interactions with other creative friends, most namely, my husby and… Continue reading On Critiquing and Kindness
