Hello, everyone! It's been autumn here for a couple of days, though it hasn't yet gotten any cooler. How are you doing? How are you feeling? Are you safe? Are you happy? What's going on in your neck of the woods?
As for me, I've been juggling many tasks... I started this blog in an attempt to add to my portfolio and showcase my copywriting versatility. I also have been working to revitalize my shop, partially by making seasonal products and updating the website.
I'm writing fiction and nonfiction to submit to a variety of literary magazines and online publications, and I have submitted an innumerable amount of applications in search of full-time work.
My familial obligations have increased—I have four new siblings to help raise, and I've become the music director for my local parish, cantoring two out of three of the weekend masses. I joined the alum chorus at my alma mater, hoping to stay connected to my glee club friends and to take part in the concerts.
I'm hoping to start doing more freelance writing and graphic design commissions, and on top of all of this, I'm working on starting a digital media network using Patreon, where my friends and I will soon produce creative endeavors, be sponsored by friends and fans, and share our stories with the world.
With so many balls in the air, it's inevitable that eventually, I would drop one. You see, dear readers, I did not keep my promise.
My original intent for this blog was to produce a certain level of content—a weekly minimum of two, 750-word posts. Last week, I failed to do so, which, though a more personal disappointment than a public one, left a sour taste in my mouth. This week, I will have two new articles for you: the background on the true story of "Pocahontas" and why we should stop using cultures as costumes, and a review of the novel Beast by Brie Spangler, as promised in the inaugural post on this blog.
I thank you all for your support and understanding, and I hope to continue supplying you with honest, accurate, useful, and entertaining content, on this blog, on my soon-to-be-launched Patreon, and wherever else you may find me.
Have a good week, y'all. Stay safe and sane.
