Let’s Talk About Quantum Banging

I officially “joined” fandom in May of 2008. I’ll be celebrating my site anniversary on May 20th (13 years) and I didn’t do my first fan fiction bang until 2019. I’ve rarely participated in fandom-specific challenges outside of events on Rough Trade. I could go into a long-winded explanation about my reasons for joining fandom, to begin with, and how many of those planned events in the past looked so fucking stressful I could barely breathe at the mere thought of signing up.

Winter 2021

So, I had this epiphany last night. It was empowering, honestly. It’s something I knew on an intellectual level but it’s not something I’d ever really embraced emotionally. Let me lay it out for you: My work is a product of my creative drive and no matter how that is…

Untold Stories & Other Agonies

In 2019, around the end of December, I made this personal goal to write every single day for the year of 2020. I did it for several months before shit got terrible (for obvious reasons that we’ll just not discuss because GAH).

Fall 2020

It’s been a hard year (for everyone) and I’ve had this weird relationship with my writing that I’ve struggled with throughout Rough Trade events. I feel deeply unproductive due to my messy approach to the RT events. It’s not true — I’ve written upwards of 400k this year though most…

That’s a No From Me Dawg

About halfway through July, I took a moment to reset. Frankly, it was a hard reset and it had nothing to do with the story I was writing. I’m actually quite enamored with House of Wolves and will certainly finish it when the inspiration returns.

Website Issues & Hosting

You might have noticed that there have been some loading issues with my site (and the Quantum Bang) this is due to the limits on the server/hosting service we’re currently using. Simply put, the hosted WordPress we’re using can’t handle the size of the two sites or the traffic. I expect it will also be a problem (traffic-wise) for Rough Trade in July.

Summer 2020

Oh, Daddy! 100 Baby Challenge

I’m super bored and one of the ways I clear my head so I can concentrate and write is to play games. I started the 100 Baby Challenge on Discord but I’ll be trying streaming on Twitch today. It promises to be a disaster. I’ve archived the first episode on Youtube but the second one didn’t render properly (hence my move to Twitch).

Spring 2020

To start, I’ve had to make some changes to my website in response to my very fragile database. I’ve been having issues on and off for the last year, and I’ve tried a lot of workarounds to fix it, but nothing really worked. This morning I woke up, and all of the comments had detached from my posts. They were just free-floating, and it was horrifying. Thankfully, I was able to back up to yesterday and resolve that issue, but this is the fourth time that’s happened, so I had to make a decision about the size of my database.

Winter 2020

So, technically speaking I posted 4 works to EAD this year. I’ve removed three of them. I might replace it with something else. I’m taking a break from the Harmony pairing so I’ve removed the WIPs for that pairing from Evil Author Day and the Wild Hare Project because they’re all subject to massive edits regarding the pairing. I didn’t want to cause confusion later with various versions of the fic existing more than they already do.

2019 In Review

This year has felt super productive for me for a variety of reasons. I’ve written just short of 800k words for the whole year and posted 325k on my site. That seems crazy, in retrospect, but I do have a lot of works in progress—128. We’ve been discussing goals and…
