HOLY BALLS What a month is has been. I can’t even process it all but now I am flying at the seat of my pants and I hope the fabric holds. Between medical issues, precarious financial situations, and opportunities, my organization tendencies are on overdrive.
I would like to start by showing off some #ThursdayAesthetic themes I have participated in on Twitterrecently, because they were so damned beautiful
There has been a LOT going on in the world of Odin, some good, some not. As par for the course. Primarily, I have been dealing with a lot of medical bullshit, so my will to do anything has been put in front of a firing squad.
Despite all this I have been more vigilant in keeping up with my workout regimens, and gradually adding more to the load. The end goal for all of this is to git gud for my weekly HEMA sessions, which has been my “out” for mental health. A side effect, however, is that I am absolutely covered in bruises. I have to strategically put my arms in a specific angle in order to keep pressure off of them while typing >.< Continue reading Battered and Bruised Updates – And Free books!
So I’m feeling like toasted ass and my body has basically told me to gfy, so I have been attempting to take it easy for the week. I’m thinking it’s walking pneumonia again, which is only mildly irritating instead of incapacitating. But needless to say, it’s annoying to the fact that I probably shouldn’t be performing my normal routines, including going out in public and exercising. Continue reading ODIN IS AFFLICTED – Weekly (ish) Summary Report
Like most who know about the artform, I was introduced to improv comedy from the famed TV show Whose Line Is It Anyway? Despite many of the references going over my head at the time, I still found myself bursting at the seams with laughter at the off-the-cuff antics of the performers.
Welcome to the very first Weekly Summary Report of Sleepless Flame 2.0. Things…are happening. As far as I can tell. My body is currently recovering from the shock of organized scheduling, and I may have taken on too much too soon. What else is new?
In addition to the writing shenanigans, I am attempting another workout regiment while hoping not to feel like death the day after. So far it’s not going well. I took two days off so that I won’t feel like an open can of Surströmming that’s been left out in the sun for a month when I go to HEMA practice over the weekend.
Time to subject myself to the bittersweet writing cycle again. Nara’s saga has just begun to take shape, and she has a whole solar system to experience. With the shaky end of the publication phase of Sleepless Flame, I barely had any time to recover my wits. But I find myself in this weird creative limbo where I have no desire to work on any side projects. And the lure of the Outline Sirens is calling. ONCE MORE INTO THE FRAY.
I promise, I promise, I will have actual content shortly, but LOOKIT MY 2LB MASSIVE CYBERCHILD:
She’s a beast at 514 pages. I can’t even right now. I am in a glass case of emotion. My hands are shaking, and I am surprised I can type out a cohesive sentence. Though I am finding myself hitting backspace a lot more than normal. It’s been a real rollercoaster, but now I can say I have seen something to a close.
Welp. There it is. I actually published a deng book. Sleepless Flame is a thing that exists in reality. Despite being a weaver of words, I don’t exactly have a way to explain my thoughts and feelings. Immersive science fiction worlds, specifically cyberpunk, have always been an extremely important part of my life. It has literally kept me alive these years, and I am so happy to finally breathe mine into existence.
I’ve said before, I don’t have much to be proud of in my life, and I find it very difficult to finish projects. I get discouraged easily and give up. But after seven years, I finally saw something to the end. Huh.
