Ensign’s Log, Entry 30: August Month Map–Week 3

There’s a little more color on the map now! And I definitely think that I’m going to be making the dashes much smaller next month. I want to feel like I’m making progress when I am! So what did I do this past week? Demon’s Magic: Edited 41/112 pages. Not …

Ensign’s Log, Entry 29: August Month Map–Week 2

This update is again a little late. I almost didn’t post, because as you’ll see in a moment, it looks like I’ve done pretty much nothing this past week. Yep, no movement in the lines. I should have made the dashes smaller–I’ll keep that in mind for next month’s map! …

Ensign’s Log, Entry 28: August Month Map–Week 1

Yes this is a little later than I meant it to be. However, its colorfulness will hopefully make up for that! The results from Week 1 of August: Demon’s Magic: Still revising. Demon’s Soul: Need to finish Demon’s Magic first. Of Beauty Within: Slow but steady progress–probably about a third …

Ensign’s Log, Entry 22: Time for some Introspection

Ensign’s Log, Entry 21: NaPoWriMo Day #20, Poem #7

There are moments when I need to recall a fact, a name, a date…and nothing comes when I seek the right memory. Oftentimes I will remember later on, long after the moment I needed to recall it has passed. Recently I tried a free writing session–difficult in a moving car, …
