It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life for me, ooh
And I’m feeling good

Lots going on at the moment, so just a quick update from me for the time being.
First off: new layout! You may have noticed this already, but the website has been updated to a new layout that will hopefully help organize everything and shift the focus onto the writing specific areas of the content. The reasoning behind this switch is actually a perfect segue into our second update – the novel.
I have been working on updates and edits to Teagloom: volume one for the last year and it is going quite well aside from the writers block with the climax. Yes, I know that some do not believe in this little hiccup and believe it is an excuse. You do you – but I have a blocker going on with this one section so I’ve been working on the Kickstarter and getting everything organized for the book to be published. Progress abound! We have a layout for the campaign, media posts, an artist for the campaign, and started the processes required to create a publishing imprint. Teagloom: volume one’s Kickstarter campaign is set to start this October with publishing and back rewards hopefully heading out in 2019. Keep some eyes on your social media because #Teagloom is coming.
We’ve also been keeping up with Monochrome Monday – a project I started to try to keep my mind creative despite the writer’s block. There have been some interesting creations so far and there are an abundance to come. I’ve been using an old decommissioned library book that one of my university professors gave me to destroy and I think it’s perfect for this sort of thing: American Social Patterns. It’s no wonder that the library chose to remove it, some of the concepts in this book are so outdated compared to today; of course, it is from 1956. Adds a new layer to look at when reading through those posts.
Until next time,
