In Search of Search Terms

Remember back in the day when you could actually see what search terms brought people to your website? (If you don’t remember, read this glorious post from Hyperbole and a Half. Go on, I’ll wait for you.

Ok, so like I was saying- remember that? We don’t have that anymore, thanks to encrypted search terms, and it saddens me. I would really love to know what search terms are bringing people to my blog.

I’m going to leave this post a sticky for a while, in the hopes that you, the readers, will help me out.

What search terms, if any, brought you to my site?

Feel free to leave a comment here, or message me directly using the contact from on my About page if you’d rather.

Thanks guys! I’m looking forward to the results. ๐Ÿ˜€


Housekeeping: Seth drabble

It’s just a dance, he told himself. Just one stupid little dance you’ve practiced a hundred times. With his nerves this ramped up, he was just as likely to call the fire on accident as with the ceremonial dance. Either way, the central fire would be lit for the year, and his people’s prosperity would be assured.

The only real question was whether or not his dignity would survive the winter.

This drabble is something I later turned into one of the Dreams in the Desert Interludes. I’m not sure why I tucked it again in my drafts folder, but I’m sure there’s some Seth fans out there that will be glad its resurfaced.

Totally Unimportant Announcement

But I’m still delighted by it, so I’m going to share anyways. ๐Ÿ˜›


And I’m playing with it now (part of why I wanted to make a post, so I could play). I finally went out and got myself an external keyboard, and I have to say, so far Iam DELIGHTED. it’s a little weird to have my phone sitting on my knees while my keyboard is in my lap, but I’m seriously in love. Girlfriend is working on the laptop, but I’m still able to type at the speed of keyboar and make blog posts!!!!

…this is really the dumbest thing, but it’s made me like SO happy, you have no idea.

well, maybe you have some idea, since you’re reading this.

But anyways, I really love it, and totally recommend one if you work primarily off a virtual keyboard touch screen kind of set up. I am moving SO much faster, and can actually keep up with my own train of thought this way. It’s wonderful.

365: Day Something or other

February is drawing to a close, and while I haven’t been writing every day, I’ve been writing more days than not. Slowly but surely.

The trick has really been restructuring my life (and in a very literal case, my living room). I committed to making space for my writing, and while it was a bumpy start, I’m finally starting to see the real change I was looking for.

It also doesn’t hurt that I’ve made other commitments to friends that make me get up earlier every day.

So work on Asylum is moving steadily forward, I’m getting back into the groove of someone who’s words come easily, and I’m all around happier with my life cause I feel like I’m getting somewhere. It’s really nice.

I still don’t know what I want to do with Asylum when it’s ready. I’ve opened up the draft to beta readers, who are keeping my interest level up, but I really have no clue what I’ll do when it’s done. Query? E-publish? Run it as a serial again? I just don’t know. But it’s getting written, and at this point, that’s what matters.
