I’ve been working on my worldbuilding for the same world for a couple of years now. It evolved from another WIP I never finished and ended up shelving after trying to rewrite it several times. I just wasn’t ready for it I think, but because of it, I do have this universe now. I have… Read More Some tips on worldbuilding
As a speculative fiction writer worldbuilding is a pretty big chunk of my work as I work on my WIPs. Thankfully worldbuilding is a passion of mine. I love thinking up systems, cultures, histories, and more and see how they influence each other. I spend a lot of my time documenting the many ideas that… Read More Building Worlds
We all know insecurities are a part of life. Don’t we all feel insecure about something, at some time in our lives? Some of us feel it more often or more strongly than others, but I think it’s a universal thing. And of course, as an emotional person myself, I got a recent dose of… Read More Writing Insecurities
I got diagnosed when I was 26. Testing took up several months, then I got the results right around my 27th birthday.

Since in my opinion trigger warnings are part of self-care I thought to address some things about it on here as part of my blog… Read More On the Trivialization of Trigger Warnings

Happy Autism Awareness Month! This is a good reminder that it’s not actually awareness we’re fighting for now. We need acceptance! So this month I will be talking about being Autistic on here. There will be mentions of things I (and I guess others) struggle with like ableism, masking, etc. But I will work to… Read More April Autism Awareness Month!
There’s nothing like thinking you’re coping with your issues or situation and finding out you were SO wrong. I’ve been down that rabbit hole and it was as you expect one hell of a ride. Hellish. Because I’m not an omniscient narrator and life isn’t fiction I don’t have all the answers and only know… Read More Am I doing this “coping” thing right?
