A to Z Reflections


Well, I already posted this, but it seems I should say something else. Well, one thing I’ve learned is that a lack of a theme can make it harder when having to choose my favorite of my own posts.

I want to call attention to one of the several blogs that I discovered thanks to this challenge. Because of the “A to Z of LGBT+ Comics Characters” list over at Things Matter, I learned about some characters I hadn’t heard of, and was reminded of a few favorites.

And I want to give a big thanks to Overlord-G for reblogging “Y is for Yuri“, which accounts for about half the views in what’s been my second-best week ever.

#AtoZChallenge After Party!

Think you might have missed some great posts during the a to z challenge?
Check out the after party, with lots of links in the comments.

Victim to Charm

We did it, A to Z Challenge bloggers! We’ve crossed the finish line!

One of the things I found my A-Z buddies saying on their blogs and during #azchat each week was that they wished they read more posts during the Challenge.

So to remedy that, and to celebrate our awesome achievements, I’m hosting a blog party on this very post!

X is for Xabungle


Combat Mecha Xabungle is an anime series from the 1980’s. It was directed by Yoshiyuki Tomino, most famous for Mobile Suit Gundam, and to a lesser extent Brave Raideen and Space Runaway Ideon, but Xabungle is a lot lighter and more comedic than those, or most of Tomino’s other work.

W is for Writing


Obviously, I’m writing this, and I think I’ve mentioned enough times that I’m also writing novels.

I find it a lot easier to express myself in written form than in speech. I like to have time to decide what I’m saying, to look at the whole thing and make corrections before anyone sees any of it, and to make little asides (like this one) without sidetracking the whole conversation

And I have stories I want to tell. That, more than self-promotion, is the reason I’m finding it harder and harder to keep from mentioning my novel. I still haven’t decided for certain on my publishing route, but I’m determined to be published in some form, because I want people to read this story.
