Soul Eater Series Update: Going forward with a Summer Nanowrimo

SoulEater 300x200Last November, I participated in Nanowrimo during the month of November. It was an amazing experience. I was able to complete the first draft of my Soul Eater novel.  What I figured out, though, was that this was more than one short novel.  After much thought, gnashing, and trepidation, I came to the conclusion that what I was really writing ended up being a 3-part serial or episodic novel.

Thank Grimm It’s Friday!

Russell Hornsby1K. It’s truth time. I love Grimm! It’s one of my all-time favorite shows.  I have to admit, in the beginning I was simply intrigued with the “fairy tale” storyline.  When Grimm was in Season 1, I thought it was just another “fairy tale” show that would flop.  Really, I believed that there was only so much that could be done.  This season I have been pleasantly surprised and now I consider myself a legitimate “Grimm” fan.
