Where I have been:

School started way earlier then I thought, and it’s been nonstop article writing for Capital News Service. It’s pretty cool since it covers the Capitol and the Virginia General Assembly. It’s been amazing seeing the results too since this class means you actually get published too.

I’ve done a ton of stories, and here are the links for them so far:

It’s been a wild ride, and I hope to finish up the last two semesters at VCU strong. I will graduate in December, and finally receive my degree A Bachelors in Mass Communications for Print/Online Journalism.

It will be good to be done with VCU, and get my degree. I’m definitely going to love journalism. On the writing front I’ve been working on finishing #AngelWitch and Tales From Behind the Counter needs to have more of a narrative to it. It’s a wild ride with that book, and I hope to have more out soon.

I’m going to start blogging more once a week, and I can make it related to my novels. Like character sheets, excerpts, and I want to plan to have out more stories so I can get myself out there. At the end of the day I’ll have my writing even if school comes to an end my stories and novels will always be there. I also updated my website, and I can do more with it since I got the premium. I want to start a newsletter since I want to offer some free stories just for subscribing.

Do you subscribe to a newsletter? How often do you want them? What do you hope to see from it?

Until next time,

Bye 2016…

I’m glad 2016 is almost over since it’s been one of the shittiest years ever. I haven’t published anything new yet, and it sucks since I did not meet my goals of getting novels done. I was hoping to have the first three Scarlet book, Tales from Behind the Counter, and AngelWitch done. Tales from Behind the Counter is at the beta stage, and I need to finish the drafts of the Scarlet series and AngelWitch. But some of it might go on the back burner during the Fall and Spring semesters since I only have two left then I graduate. It’s not an easy time either since I have to retake classes since I had no idea how heavy the workload is…These last semesters are going to be hard since I am taking Capital News Service, and Ipad Journals in the Fall. I’m also excited about it, and at the same time I’m interning at The Odyssey Online as a content creator. An internship is required for my degree and it is exciting to have one that I can do at any time. It will be a better year I hope, and I’ll finally get my degree at the end of it. I want to move out soon, and get a full time job after college that will be awesome, and hopefully write and publish more books since I have to do something after college is over. It was a long road, and I can’t wait till it’s over.

I hope to get more Youtube videos done since that is another thing I haven’t been keeping up with. I will keep up with it more during the summer, and hopefully get more novel writing done during the summer. School is a priority and I want to get my degree. I also set up a different Twitter account and Facebook Fanpage just for my journalism articles since it’s way different from my novel writing ones. My retail problem tweets are funny to some people, but I don’t want it to collide with my journalism one since I’ll be covering the General Assembly, and legislators might not have the same humor I do. It will be a fun year, and the classes are challenging which I am excited about since I loved the thought of Capital News Service, and it will help grow my journalism career. I hope the betas get done soon with my Tales From Behind the Counter book. I want it out soon. I do hope to finish AngelWitch by the end of the break, and knock out some videos for Youtube.

Until next time,

Up, Up, and Away….

The semester is going to be over December 8th, and I could not be more happy. It has been an interesting semester since I went to some U.S District Court cases, and even the Supreme Court too. It was interesting at times, and some were boring. I even went to a council meeting for the first time, and it wasn’t bad since there were people there opposed to the resolutions. I did an interview with Madelyn Smith head of the Gluten Intolerance Group of Richmond, and even did a few articles on Celiac Disease. Not bad. My last two are about the stresses of working retail, and the holidays are here which means more craziness in everything. Not much on the writing front since I didn’t concentrate on my National Novel Writing Month project. I finally have my own domain for my website. It’s awesome, and I hope to finish AngelWitch soon. I’ve had a lot of time to think about what I want, and I want to write full time and get out of retail. I want to write more of Fang and Fur of Love, and NightWatch Superntaural Store. They are going to be put up on the blog chapter by chapter. Hell, I’m even coming up with a newsletter, and sending out that too. Hopefully. The next semester should be interesting since I’ll be interning with Odyssey online, and taking Capital News Service one of my journalism capstone courses. It will be good to be finally done next Fall. I can’t wait.

Until next time,
