My Favorite Villain

Posted by Makayla Yokley on December 12, 2015 at 12:30 AM Comments comments (0)

Let’s be honest here. Ready? You sure? Because it’s about to get real up in here.


 

We love villains.


 

Even if we don’t like the things they do, and even if we’re rooting for their demise, no matter how horrible they are we still find ourselves enthralled by them in either a positive or negative way. They’re fun. Fun to write. Fun to read. We love to hate them. Hate to love them. Them Love Hate To. No mat...

A New Medium Pt 2

Last time we talked about writing by hand vs writing on the laptop, and at the end of the post I mentioned coming back to you guys with the results. To be honest it took me a little longer than I expected to get this post finished since I've been busy lately, but here I am now! And I've got a lot to say!

 



Let me begin by saying I loved writing by hand . . . until the cramping started. When I was in school my writing wrist was strong enoug...

A New Medium

For most of my life I wrote my novels on a computer. A desktop computer, laptop, and a tablet to a lesser extent. My wrists and fingers are trained to search out the keys and sometimes I can manage to do it without even looking. The only time I didn't write by hand was when I didn't have an oppertunity. When I was in high school I wrote bits and piec...

Elegy for a Dead World --- Review

Posted by Makayla Yokley on April 29, 2015 at 1:55 PM Comments comments (0)

So for this post I'm reviewing the game "Elegy for a Dead World" which you can purchase on Steam (and, as far as I know, ONLY on steam). The premise of the game is a simple one: You are a space traveller going to three different worlds, completely destroyed and devoid of any other life, and once you're there you're given writing prompts on certain areas of the worlds and you're supposed to fill in the blanks with how YOU think its finished.

Bad Day

I didn't update last night because it was, like, two thirty in the morning when I finished working so I decided I could just do last night's update today! To be honest we're glad we even have an update at all. The reason I was up so late was because it took that long to do anything substantial. So anyway! Here's the update on "The Scavenger," my post-apocalyptic steampunk novel!
