Further Confusion 2016 is in the books, and I for one am quite glad it's over. Not because the convention was terrible (it wasn't) or because there's something great on the horizon (but there is), but mostly because I have this small hoard of memories to treasure and sift through for the next few months. … Continue reading (Personal) A Glance Back, A Stare Forward

Self-Care and Conventions
Further Confusion 2016 will begin tomorrow, and for most of us furries we're just counting down the hours until we can head to San Jose to immerse ourselves in fandom for four glorious days.

(Writing) New Year’s Resolutions, 2016
It feels like I swing back and forth with resolutions from year to year. One year, I'm all business with concrete resolutions that have a pass/fail success condition. Write 6 short stories.

Kwanzaa 2015: Imani (Faith)
Happy New Year, everyone! Aren't you glad that words typed on a scream can't shout? I sincerely hope that this first day of a brand new year is a great one, and that you are able to spend it doing exactly what you want to be doing -- whether that's recovering from last night's festivities, … Continue reading Kwanzaa 2015: Imani (Faith)
