Weekend Warrior: New Year, New You?

Changes All things in life must change. Some are good, some are bad, some just have to happen because things get old and moldy. Every year folks start with a list of changes they are going to make. They raise up their scratch paper full of resolutions and declare “This will be my year!”… and […]

The Month of Insanity!

Let the insanity begin!! The flurry of action that occurs every year in November has returned. We collect our candies, our snacks, drinks, comfy sitting spots, and tools of creation. We mentally prepare for the onslaught of words, words, words! I am, of course, talking about NaNoWriMo. It’s here. In but mere hours we, the […]

The Muted Voices of Tabletop RPGs

RavenCon 2018 has come and gone. It is a convention I quite enjoy for a miriad of reasons, not the least of which is getting to see friends that I rarely see anymore. The con offers the opportunity to mingle with like-minded people (GEEKS FO’ LIFE!!) and expand my suddenly growing professional network of fellow […]

Life, Interrupted

Never again will I take my hot water and music for granted. I love both, need both, and missed them dearly during the Great Power Outage of 2018. I am, of course, speaking of Winter Storm Riley who tore through northern Virginia like the beast it was. The tree pictured fell at the end of […]

Go Home, Winter, You’re Drunk!

So, this was us this past weekend. We had weather in the 70’s straight up to Saturday and then BAM! Sleet. Further north of our little overlooked city it snowed. Snowed!! Then, as if nothing at all had occurred, back up into the 50’s and low 60’s on Sunday. We’ve since been enjoying the lingering […]

Walks, Pitches, and Dog Strollers

We’re just all over the dang place today, aren’t we!? Hells to the yes we are. Since that has been my constant state of being lately, we’re just gonna roll with it. Chaos Tamer, right? Sort of. Not really taming any chaos recently, more chasing it around with a broom while wearing mismatched slippers and […]

Welcome to 2018!!

Ooh, puppies!!! Ok, focus! I’m late to the new year celebration game cuz I was on vacation over the new year. Be jelly. Or not, no, don’t actually be jelly. Vacation was only sorta fun. Stupid storm took all our warm weather away, teenagers insisted on being miserable, I got sick, and the littles were, […]

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 […]
