Promoting Yourself Through Social Media

Today’s blog post is a topic near and dear to my heart: Social Media. Let’s get started. So you’re a writer, and you’re amazing, I’m sure, but no one will know until you get yourself out there. In our modern day and age, we…

Knowing your threshold

  This one is short and sweet. I’m reading Stephen King’s IT for reasons I’m still not sure. I think it is because I like his writing and I hate myself. Well, I mean I know I hate myself. Moving on. I pick large…

Because Poetry

A New Ginger

In case you haven’t noticed, there’s a new Ginger in town. Unfortunately, I’m only a ginger in spirit. You might be asking yourself, “If he’s not a ginger, won’t the name have to change? Won’t everything have to change?” Nope, it’ll still be the same…
