We were inland bound,
but chained to
white-capped harbors.
I always tasted
salt on my lips
when I kissed you.

This is my current list of books that I absolutely will write at some point … The ones that are already pretty much fully plotted, anyway.

  • Testament Hill series
  • Until the End of Colin Ackartt
  • The God of Enclosed Spaces
  • Julian Dives 

Julian Dives is that one based off my Figment poem … It’s being really distracting right now, so I’m trying to exorcise it from my thoughts.

GOTTA WRITE TESTAMENT HILL.  

I hate that - when I’m working on one project and then all that inspiration triggers a breakthrough in another story. It very much like, “I love you, but I’m working on something else right now, so please go sit in the back and be quiet. Please.” 

But I love Julian Dives so much. 

Testament Hill is going well though, and it’s my baby, so it must come first. Though, some JD stuff still might find its way onto this blog, just so you know. 

[So dieautorin don’t panic if this blog isn’t TH 24-7! I AM WORKING ON IT. XD]

So, I know I’ve been MIA from Figment and pretty much everywhere else. Lots of stuff going on lately, and I haven’t had a lot of time for any formal updates of anything. But, I’m writing on the run - a short serial piece on a writing blog my IRL friends and I are running. Sporadic updates, as per usual from me. But these chapters are short, so it shouldn’t take me too long to bust ‘em out. So, here’s Part I, should anyone be interested. (Aaaaannd you could always check out some other people’s pieces on there, hint, hint. There’s not much yet, though.)

I’ll be back to Figment in the next month or so. Just need to re-establish a productive writing environment (around me right now: three people in conversation, a meowing cat, a NASCAR race on TV, LOUD KITCHEN NOISES).

I miss you all~

A vampire story…


By L. Schmidt. And it is the best vampire story I have read in a long while. ‘Tis for the The Immortal Rules contest.

Girls grow up, gods get stranger, and there was always something out there in those woods, anyway. For Camp NaNo.

Power failures spell romance for a girl and her radio beau, but when his batteries die in the midst of a confession she turns to a love-struck childhood friend for help—and gets more electricity than she bargained for.


Go read this people. This one’s brilliant.

Love, the forbidden kind. Also a bit of growing up.

I’ve decided it’s time for a new chapter of Who’s Afraid of …

Unlike most people, Imre never forgot how much of a failure he was in his past lives.


So, everyone should go read this. And like, everything else E.R. has written. So there.

I’ve been compromised.

But really, what if a spy signed up for our newsletter. And now, she has to abandon her whole life because we were being clever. WE’VE RUINED A LIFE.

Oh, now, now. It’s just a burned alias. Don’t worry yourselves.
