Hey, my dudes. Toads and Goblins will be taking a brief hiatus, no more than a week or two, I'm guessing. Not to worry, nothing major is happening or wrong or anything of the sort. Just taking a short break from blogging to focus on some of my other writing. Thanks for being here and … Continue reading Brief hiatus
And it really does make me feel bad to say that. I'm someone who didn't have a super great experience in public school for various reasons, and I decided looooooooong before having kids (like, when I was a teenager) that I would absolutely homeschool my future brood. Being a nanny for many, many years just … Continue reading Momfession: I’m super stoked school starts in less than three weeks
So, I've been chronicling my foray into discipline when it comes to my writing practice, and recently touched on how beneficial writing regularly seems to be thus far. And this week, I discovered new benefits stemming from my experiment writing short stories, which I specifically noticed when I spent some time on my actual book. … Continue reading Benefits of branching out
MY PEOPLE! I'm super stoked to announce that my Patreon is up and running and the entire first installment of my post-apocalyptic sci-fi short story series is posted and ready for consumption! Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!! Okay, here are the deets: Can I read your short stories for free? No, you may not! You may read the preview … Continue reading It’s a GO!
What up, bitches? I hope this Thor's day has found you well-caffeinated and nifty. On a side note, Thor's day is actually my favourite day, as I was born on Thor's day (almost a month late because I'm stubborn like that) and, as far as I've been able to trace it, my maiden name is … Continue reading Patreon launch date, word count goals, and invariably other various nonsense

And then get excited that I'm nearly finished with the second installment and the official launch date of the series is getting closer! THANKS, BITCHES! ... Why yes, … Continue reading Quick and dirty
Holy shit, it's TOMORROW. Okay, dudes, here's the deal. This preview is a decent portion of the first installment of the short story series I'm writing that, beginning sometime next month, will be available essentially via subscription by becoming a patron of my Patreon account. Patreon is a fantastic site and service that allows individuals … Continue reading SHORT STORY PREVIEW: “The Barn”
People. I put that shit in ALL CAPS. Did you notice? GOOD! It's because I'm super fucking stoked and also more than a little terrified to announce that I will be sharing a teaser from the first installment of my short story series here on Toads and Goblins, as well as on the Facebook page, … Continue reading SHORT STORY SERIES UPDATE!
So I like to read successful writers' thoughts on writing because I find the insight really valuable--and it makes me feel like slightly less of a freak to know they all pretty much deal with the same crippling self-doubt I do at times. Hooray for being human, I suppose. One of the themes that comes … Continue reading On writing regularly
So. Dudes. I did it. I created a Facebook page for the blog. Wah-wah. But seriously, I kind of had to. Survival instinct and all that. Even though dozens of fabulously lovely people have subscribed to the blog, my views dropped off a damn cliff once I was no longer also sharing my posts to … Continue reading The game–you must play it, dammit!
