    Something creepy I wrote for Halloween and totally forgot to post! Since I’m between writing projects now, I may explore some new stuff for a minute. That is, if Diana’s As-Yet-Unnamed Fantasy Novel Volume Deux doesn’t forcibly crawl out of my head. _________________________________________

    I Wrote a Book Once


    On November 30th, 2015, I finished the first draft of my book.

    It was a hot fucking mess.

    On January 2nd, 2016, I finished my first run of edits on aforementioned book. That run of edits included a near-total re-write of the first half of the manuscript, roughly 200 pages …

    We are WAY Overthinking This


    It’s gotten to the point where my work neighbor asks me how my book is coming along on Monday mornings. Because she knows that I’ve spent hours of my weekend staring at a screen and resisting the urge to scream and tear my hair out editing the damn thing.

    Today …

    Hey Ho, Let’s Go!

    Looking back at the first draft like…

    I want to say I’m moving at a snail’s pace with this book editing, but I have to give myself some credit. I’ve completely rewritten the beginning, up through Chapter 13. Being that I started sometime in January, that’s a little less than …

    There Will Always Be Summer.


    My cells will always remember summer as it was, before summer vacations vanished. The freedom, unadulterated time to write, and play, and reminisce, and look forward. Because of the interruption of daily life, they stand out as so much more special than any other season. Even in California, where the …

    Closing The Door On Junior Year


    Well, the semester has come and gone, and with that has brought some different changes to my digital footprint.

    For the most part, my social media has stayed the same. I mostly contribute to Facebook and Instagram. I’ve really focused on putting more out there on my Twitter page, and …

    Bad Poem Blues


    When I was younger, I would get the urge to write poems when I had particularly strong feelings about things.

    I’m proud to say that I can now successfully suppress that urge.

    Believe me, nobody wants to read the poetry I crank out when I’m actually feeling bad enough to …

    A-R-M Reflection


    Working on the A-R-M module has been pretty cool! I’ve had fun expanding my knowledge on remixes and mashups, and making my own!

    Although I had worked with the two a decent amount during my DS106 class last semester, there was still a bit to learn. I mainly focused on …

    Mashing Things


    As I mentioned in a post before, I took DS106 last semester. We focused on remixes and mashups a lot. I had worked on one particular project, mashing two songs together. I chose “Follow Me” by Uncle Kracker, which has a steady calm beat. Then, I chose “Where Is The …

    Doing Some Research


    Here’s some of the research I’ve found on both remixes and mashups!

    Remixes: a piece of media which has been altered from its original state by adding, removing, and/or changing pieces of the item.

    only characteristic of a remix is that it appropriates and changes other materials to create something…
