I can create a 400-year backstory to my series that only I know and will probably never be published in its entirety.
I can create a basic alphabet and I continue to work on a constructed language.
I can create a 350-word story and still have three more books planned in my head.
I can create entire worlds with ink and paper.

But I still cannot do a freaking FAFSA or my taxes without assistance.


Less than twenty followers away from hitting 100! For those who are just checkin’ this blog out, I’m a writer who’s currently working on a dark fantasy/steampunk series. So I post occasional stuff about that, writing tips, book reviews (very occasionally) and fandom stuff. So, yeah! Check us out and give a follow if you’re interested!

Easter Morning

**NOTE BEFORE READING: This is an extremely Christ-centered poem. If you have a great distaste for religious content in your poetry, do not read it. Thank you.**

To know God in His holiness

Could take on mortal’s toil,

And shroud Himself in lowliness

To trod on earthen soil,

To be tempted by the one

By whom He was most hated,

With the plan, as God the Son,

To save what He’d created,

To be hungry and tired and sad

As all at some point are,

So His understanding of man

Was not just from afar,

And know His final breath would be

Completing His great plan,

While hanging nailed upon a tree

As His blood fell on the sand…

I know all this, and ponder still,

Yet this tale I don’t dread.

There still is ink left on the quill,

And Jesus is not dead.

For this was just a passing phase,

His guard stone rolled away

And Jesus walked from His grave

As nature sang in praise

Nails, they were but stepping-stones,

And pain but a sensation

As He prepared heavenly homes

For all who’d choose salvation

There is no greater love

Than His which makes us free.

His love has now brought life

To sinners like you and me.

heyitskrisss asked:

Is it ever ok to have a POC be the villain? (i also have a POC for my main character)

This post is a little more general than your specific circumstance because other people have asked this question and we wanted to be able to help the most amount of…

I realize I just put up a post on race in fantasy, but this is also important. Luckily, I have a lot of diversity of race in the series, and the villain in this case is a species other than human. But for those writing in which this is not the case, this would be important for you to see.
