It’s Alive!

“This blog is probably dead,” you say to yourself. It looks that way, but fear not! I’ve just been incredibly busy! I have a few ideas for eventual posts floating around in my head, but unfortunately I haven’t had that moment of manic inspiration that leads to most of my best content. Still, you lovely people deserve an update, so here’s what I’ve been up to:

I’ve got a new full-time job! And a new apartment! Being IN Toronto proper makes a huge difference, I’ve been going out and socializing, which hasn’t left as much time as I’ve wanted to get other things done. 2013 was a rough year for me, a sort of quarter-life crisis, but I’m so happy to be where I am now. I sometimes feel like my head might explode from all of the things I have to plan out at any given time, but comparing that to where I was this time last year, I can’t be anything but grateful. Everything has sort of fallen into place and I’m feeling optimistic about the immediate future! Hooray!

In the real-life sphere, I’ve also joined the X-Men of Toronto, a cosplay-based charity organization. Come on out to our events if you live in the GTA!

Additionally, I’m proud to announce that in addition to frequent contributions, I’m now an editorial assistant for Paper Droids!

Haunt of Horrors is now defunct, but my reviews are still up if you want them. I’m still writing for Pop Culture-y, and will continue one day, hopefully, be able to write for a fully-operational Nerdstock. If you like pictures, you can also check out my Frankenstein-themed Tumblr blog.

I’m also editing dialogue for the new Toronto-based comic series, The Pitiful Human Lizard, and I’m helping the owner of weirdshitblog with an upcoming short story collection.

Unfortunately, all of this meant that my YouTube channel died as quickly as it was born, but check it out anyway if you like books! When winter hits I might update it again sporadically but I don’t want to make any promises on that front…

There’s still my Facebook page and Twitter, where I try my best to update whenever I write something new, plus the odd observation or article shared.

I’m trying to do as much writing as I can, and if you can believe it, I’ve got my eye on a few more opportunities! I’m sorry I don’t post very often, but I hope that infrequent but (mostly) quality content is preferable to frequent hollow updates. I’ve had some notes on werewolves and how much I love them in my drafts for months, but I might end up publishing that somewhere else. We’ll see! Is there anything you’d be curious to get my thoughts on? Want me to discuss anything in particular? Been reading anything interesting?Shoot me a comment and if I’m inspired maybe you’ll get a post out of it.

Thanks for following, everyone.
