#MOMFAIL (aka #EVERYTHINGfail)

Oh yes, it is the season of the #momfail which then translates to the season of the #wtfdidijustdo otherwise known as the #EVERYTHINGfail. Thanksgiving has come and gone, dragging NaNoWriMo right along with it. It was there, then it wasn't and this was probably one of my worst NaNo's to date. I still "won" but [...]

NaNoWriMo (and Other Things)!

Ever feel like that starfish from Finding Nemo? "Today's the day!! The sun is shining, the tank is clean and we're - the tank is clean! THE TANK IS CLEAN?!" Yeah, that's kinda how I felt on Wednesday when NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month for the total n00bs out there) officially kicked off. I mean, I [...]

And We’re Off!

 Got your attention, didn't I? GOOD!! Cuz I have done another thing!! Black Eyes: A Demon's Curse was released for publication over the weekend. While it is only a short story, it is definitely something and it is all mine. Quite exciting. I quit full-time work to do this full time and, thus far, life has intervened [...]

Updates! (aka All of the Things!)

Is it just me, or does that word look funny to anyone else? New week, new post. We, here, at ChAoS attempt to maintain a regular posting schedule with regular things sent to the medias of socialness. It doesn't always work though. Life is just too damned hard with way too many demands. Some might [...]

The Glory of the Interwebs

Everyone loves the internet. It has, single handedly, changed everything about how humanity communicates, does business, retrieves and stores information - all of it. You can find a therapist and speak to them ON LINE without setting a single toe out of your front door (or out of your bedroom if you so choose). You [...]

They Can Open Doors…

"Are you sure you closed the door to your sister's room?" The answer was, of course. And then... The crash heard 'round the house! Birds chirping everywhere! The entire zen of my morning vanquished by two very naughty cats. Oh yes, my big orange curmudgeon (named Kurama for the 9-tailed fox from Naruto; has the [...]

Sleep, Why Have You Forsaken Me?

in·som·ni·a inˈsämnēə/ noun habitual sleeplessness; inability to sleep. This has been my life the past few nights: scrolling through my phone because I have, somehow, upset my beloved lover Sleep. She has left me barren, flitting away at the unholy hours of the morning only to return in the late evening but for a few, [...]

Apoc-eclipse!

 Looks scary, doesn't it? Sorta, apocalyptic style creepy in its own ethereal beauty. Today is the day everyone has been clamoring for; the day that has created the equally apocalyptic insanity on all of the highways heading south from the east coast states. Everyone is heading to the states where the eclipse will achieve totality. Ev-ery-one. [...]

Me

Since we rolled right into the holiday week(end) right after the first Choose Your Own Adventure, I'm going to give it one more week for folks to read and comment if they want to. This week, as the world resettles from what many took as a "vacation week" and the curtain of fun comes to [...]
