Books and TV for Nanowrimo

As I mentioned on Monday, my muse came in and wrecked all of my plans at the last minute, so I've been trying to reassemble my background material for Nanowrimo. I'm the type of writer who has to fully immerse themselves in the world of their book, which means all the media I consume while… Continue reading Books and TV for Nanowrimo


TV Binge

I feel like Netflix added so many great things in May and June. I added about twelve things to my queue, and just in time because I was starting to feel a bit bored with the selection. I do miss the days when Netflix was mostly movies. Sometimes I just want a contained story I… Continue reading TV Binge


What I’m Watching

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina I'll admit it, I was a huge fan of Sabrina, the Teenage Witch back in the day, so I was really hesitant about watching the new series on Netflix. Like Penny Dreadful, I'm classifying this one as a "problematic favorite." If you missed the drama, the Church of Satan (yes, it's… Continue reading What I’m Watching


History in Pictures

Alas, I am not sharing convention pictures with you today as I'd planned. As usual, I didn't even think to take pictures while at Steampunk Symposium. I didn't have nearly as much down time this year as I usually do, as I was on a total of 6 panels, and also had to be part… Continue reading History in Pictures


Netflix Binge: Historical Fiction

Yep, it's that time again. I spent a good chunk of the fall binge watching Netflix, and here are some of the best series I've found: The Pinkertons This is a great series set just after the Civil War, and is based on the life of the first female Pinkerton agent. It's a great blend… Continue reading Netflix Binge: Historical Fiction

Halloween Movie Marathon

A couple of weeks ago my Facebook feed was making a big deal about the ABC Family Halloween movie line up. Personally, I thought that it was a little lackluster. And then I looked at my own movie collection and though, I can do better. Halloween is my favorite holiday. I'm not a horror fan.… Continue reading Halloween Movie Marathon


Movies with Writers

Editing is the hardest part of writing, in my opinion. I've been looking for something of the cinematic variety to help motivate me. Do you have a favorite writer movie or television show? Something that motivates you when you need to put your word count in, or slog through miles and miles of red ink?… Continue reading Movies with Writers


Make up work

I've been sick for the last few days. Spent all day yesterday laying in bed marathoning 10 Things I Hate about You (movie and tv series). Today I woke up feeling wonderful, considering it was the first night out of the last four that I managed to actually sleep. Have you seen a show called… Continue reading Make up work


T.V. and Knitting

A couple of days ago I pulled the London Calling cardigan out of hibernation and managed to finish the first half of the front and cast on for the second. I've got about an inch of ribbing to go before I can start the pattern work. I have a feeling this side will take me… Continue reading T.V. and Knitting


Methods of Procrastination

Every one around me is working. It makes me feel lazy, like there's something I should be doing, but I'm not. I can think of a few things, but none that are terribly pressing at the moment. I'm sure it will come to me at 3 a.m., when I can't do anything about it, and… Continue reading Methods of Procrastination
