AKA: Jess can never make up her mind/is never satisfied/(to put a positive spin on it) is constantly learning and growing. I'm back in the proper head space to be creative and work on the blog and creative projects again! The last half of January was kind of a blasé month for me, mentally/creatively (not… Continue reading The Ever Evolving Nature of the Blog
Tomorrow is my first convention of the season, and as anyone who's followed me knows, I always come home from cons feeling super creatively energized, though often directionless in terms of where to channel that energy. This year, with two projects already under my belt, I feel like I have gained enough momentum and have… Continue reading Con Season!

OctPoWriMo was not a wellspring of expertly crafted poetry. I… Continue reading Reflections on Inktober and OctPoWriMo

Yes, yes, I know - it's Saturday again. I keep doing this. This week, my excuse is that my whole schedule has gotten flipped upside down. I spent a week out of work, and then had to adjust to a weird schedule of working only Tuesday and Thursday; we spent our Wednesday as a family… Continue reading Feel Good Friday/Friday Faves: July 14th, 2018
