YouTube Gamers

I'll let you in on a little nerdy secret of mine: I love watching gamers on YouTube. It's fascinating and so enjoyable to me. I've always loved video games but I never thought I'd enjoy watching people play them. Why watch when I could play? Then I discovered a specific band of YouTubers and I've ...

Why I Love Writing Short Stories

Novels force you to stick with one story and plot. There's nothing wrong with this so long as you have the attention span to work on the same story for months at a time. If you're like me, you can't have multiple works in progress. If I start something, I work on it until I ...
