    Memoria Demo Released!

    Hello Starlings! In addition to writing, I’ve been a hobbyist game developer on and off for ages. Now that I’ve poured my free time into a particular project for a couple of months, I’m excited to announce it publicly! It’s a JRPG about unearthing your past and changing, made in RPG Maker MV with stock…

  • Weighted Blanket

    Weighted Blanket(a poem, I suppose) I dredge up the ruins of my own past and sift through its remains quite often nowadays. Where once I feared drowning in those emotional waters, now I swim through them as if I were born and raised in them. In a way, I suppose I was. Still, there’s much…

  • I Passed A Girl

    I Passed A Girl(a poem, I suppose) I passed a high school girl on the sidewalk as I was walking today. I glanced at her a couple of times as I walked by; curious, gently probing looks. She was pretty in the way youth is pretty, and she didn’t glance back at me, but she…

  • The Elephant In The Room

    Hello Starlings! I haven’t updated in a while, have I? Last December I posted about the first draft of a new short story, and there hasn’t been much content here since, save a Trans Day of Visibility poem. Most of my creative energy has been going to my serial fiction Family of Me, which you…

  • New Aquarius: Short Story In Progress

    Hello Starlings! Remember that sci-fi short story I mentioned I was working on? The first draft is now finished, which means the project actually feels real and I can write about it! I’m hoping to wrap it up by the end of the year, but who knows how realistic that is. As with WitchNet, I…

  • Frustration

    Dear Starlings, Writing can be frustrating. A couple of days ago I started brainstorming story ideas because I wanted to post something before the end of the month. I want to post something every month here—I didn’t mention that, did I? That’s a thing I’m trying to do here. As I’m bouncing some ideas around,…

  • My First Halloween

    Starlings, I dressed up for Halloween for the first time this year. Well, not the first first time, but the first time as a woman. It wasn’t even my first time wearing a dress as part of a costume, but it’s different when you present feminine full-time. Before transition, wearing a dress was the focal…

  • Hello Starlings!

    Hi there! Since publishing my novella, I’ve been working on building up my online presence, filling in the gaps I left as I focused on my writing. One of those gaps has been coming up with a good opener for my blog posts and profile, which by extension meant coming up with a way to…
