Learning to Write Regularly and More Frequently
This is a little “inside baseball” for a lot of people here, but it’s an important topic to me, at least, and I’m sure that at least some of you have jobs and responsibilities that require creativity as much as mine does. Being a full-time writer like I am now has definitely picked up my […]
Are Games Like World of Warcraft the Future of Online Dating?
You know, when I saw this headline, I was pretty skeptical: I assumed it was another linkbait-type fluff piece that was designed to capitalize on the fact that millions of people play World of Warcraft and millions more know about the game and have automatic assumptions about the types of people who play it (few […]

Hanging Posters and Wall Art…The Classy Way!

What Does Your First Anime Say About You?
I’m about to date myself with this column, but one of the best things about being an Anime fan since childhood is that it’s shaped the way I look at the world, view life, and view its possibilities. Don’t believe me? Sure â€“ if you’re not an Anime fan, think about the things you do […]
