The Mute of Abr

My friend is a spider

My apartment’s been horrific. From the mold, to the finish stripped off the bath tub, to the…everything. It’s horrible. Especially with critters. There are insects and spiders everywhere, and constant cleaning is required to keep them in check. However, in the bathroom there is…

Interview: Angel Blackwood

On Monday I posted about Angel Blackwood’s business, Cover to Cover Editing. Today we finish off the editor spotlight with an interview with Angel. Most authors I talk to dread editing. Many don’t even realize that’s part of the process until they’ve finished the…

Pokemon Go: Day 4

I think it’s day four. For those of you unaware, wondering about all the weird people glued to their phones outside major landmarks and stores, Pokemon GO released last week. The game is AR, where Pokemon are placed in our own world, and we…

The Witcher: Morality

Witcher 3 spoilers ahead! I’ve learned a lot the past couple days about morality through the Witcher 3. I mean, I had before, but I looked some things up on Reddit, and it taught me even more. There were three crones in a swamp. They…

Captain America and Hope

Captain America is the embodiment of the American dream. He is courage and strength. He takes the field against impossible odds, stands up for the ideals of freedom and liberty, and fights for what he believes. He is hope. He stands against Hydra, a…

Never Forget

So this song came out and just pulled on me. I mean, who wouldn’t it pull on? Who hasn’t had that one lover that was a best friend, everything in the world, and then they walked out? I mean walked out is a general…

Voltaire’s Fight

I’m betting some of you saw what JK Rowling said about Donald Trump. Link attached for rock dwellers. Synopsis to follow for people who fear links. I fear links. More Link. But only if I decided to kidnap Zelda. There is a petition going…

Team Yennifer > Team Triss

First Note: This is a massive Witcher spoiler. Like anything and everything for the franchise. Second Note: I can’t believe I’m doing this. Here’s looking at you, Mac. (You can find the Team Triss opinion at his website at this link) Third Note: Mac’s post…
