Inspiration for the late bloomers
I found a great quote from Sarah Anderson, and I thought I'd repeat it for all my fellow artists out there: It's okay to be a late bloomer. Everyone moves at their own pace. The pressure to do things at a specific time in your life takes away the vital space and thoughtfulness needed to … Continue reading Inspiration for the late bloomers

Different type of heroes
The older I get, the more I enjoy stories without that fairy tale ending. Instead, they're more realistic. The hero becomes damaged by what they had to do. There's no simple life anymore.

Some of … Continue reading Are we human?
A creative way to get to know your characters
Vivid characters are an essential part to any story. Without strong characters, the story can seem uninteresting and fall apart. Understanding your characters is a good way to develop them. One creative way to explore your characters is to find songs that describe them. For example, I have a character named Victoria who's fighting on … Continue reading A creative way to get to know your characters
Blogs without the love (2017)
With the way the world works, some of my best posts have drowned in the water before they could swim. Few people will look back on them anymore. But just because they're old, doesn't mean they're lost forever. As the year comes to an end, it's time to remember the whole journey. Here's a list … Continue reading Blogs without the love (2017)
