The First Tag (in which I try and remember my terrible first attempts at being a rip-off writer [and also a sneak peek at my very first use of a writing prompt?])

good morning, Cyberspace!

Now that I’m back from Hiatus, I figure it’s high time that I begin resurrecting myself from the never-ending pit of tags that have apparently been molding and festering in the darkest corner of my studio for the past three years.

(I haven’t even been blogging for three years. #fail)

Apparently I am a very slappable person, folks, because I keep getting slapped in the face with tags.

Which is great, by the way. I love getting tagged. It gives me validation. Continue reading “The First Tag (in which I try and remember my terrible first attempts at being a rip-off writer [and also a sneak peek at my very first use of a writing prompt?])”

The Twelve Days of Writing – A Musical Parody

My brain is fried potato today, Cyberspace.

NaNoWriMo was — to put it simply — draining. My writerly tube has been completely emptied of all its carefully stored up creative juices, and I am officially a dried up potato fry.

isn’t this wonderful

But it is Tuesday! And Tuesdays mean blog posts, and since I have absolutely no drafts backed up that look appealing in the least, it is time to whip up something drastic.

So here we go, Cyberspace. Prepare yourself. Continue reading “The Twelve Days of Writing – A Musical Parody”

6 Things I Have Learned From Being A Freshly Graduated Asparagus

Good afternoon, Cyberspace,

Four years ago, back when I was but a smol bean beginning high school, graduation was just a distant fantasy in the blip of a horizon that was my future. It was a dream. A nightmare. A complex idea that I did not know how to comprehend.

Graduation was, to me, the end of my existence. It was the day when everything ended.

It was the day that I would die. Continue reading “6 Things I Have Learned From Being A Freshly Graduated Asparagus”

The Five Most Commonly Used Writerly Abbreviations (that make me want to barf my cookies into a plastic bag)

Good evening, Cyberspace!

Today I am here–in my full pixie glory–with a deliciously spontaneous smudge for you all!

Because who am I if I am not both delicious and spontaneous?

my soul is made of cookie crumbles. obviously I am delicious.

Now, it has been a constant thought brewing in the back of my marshmallow mind that there is a remarkably wonderful community of writer-bloggers out there in the world–some of which I have had the amazing opportunity to communicate with through my own smol blog–and it finally occurred to me that there are two things in the bloggerly world that never seem to be addressed: Continue reading “The Five Most Commonly Used Writerly Abbreviations (that make me want to barf my cookies into a plastic bag)”

Five Reasons Why I Absolutely Loathe Word Limits (with all of the fiery passions of Mordor)

Good afternoon, Cyberspace!

It is an uncommonly known truth that I–the Cookie Queen–absolutely and irrevocably despise with a burning passion the most vile form of restraint that is commonly cast upon the writers of this day:

The Word Limit.

Now, don’t get me wrong here. I believe that in some extremely rare and therefore no cases, word limits can be a good thing.

Sort of. Continue reading “Five Reasons Why I Absolutely Loathe Word Limits (with all of the fiery passions of Mordor)”

Camp NaNoWriMo Week Four: The Final Charge (a.k.a. The Orginal [and also a not-so smol rant…?)

Good afternoon, Cyberspace, and welcome to yet another session of Kenzie Rants at The World, featuring a very angry chipmunk Kenzie.

Or maybe just a puddle of tears chipmunk Kenzie. I’m really not sure which at this precise moment.

“Wait!” you gasp in utter astonishment. “K-Kenzie?!?!?? Art mine eyes deceiving me? I thought you weren’t supposed to come back from Hiatus until August!”

Why, yes, dear bean, you are quite correct. Thank you for being such a lovely stalker remembering.

and also where did the strange accent come from because you did not have that when I abandoned you

everlost: A Second Draft Update (and also a smol rant because #whynot)

Good morning, Cyberspace! It is currently 11:32 am on Monday, the 19th of June, and I have decided to take a smol break from rewriting everlost because A) I need a post for tomorrow and even though I have like 11 posts that should technically be ready to schedule in my writing folder, they’re all unfinished so it’s obviously easier to just write an entirely new post one day in advance, and B) I am physically and mentally dead.

*breathes in deeply because #longsentencewithterriblepunctuation*

And what better way to take a break from writing my book than to hop on over to my blog and rant about my book, am I right?

Of course I’m right. I’m always right.
