A little writer with a long way to go

What was that?

I noticed a huge jump in page views today from zero per day for about a week up to eleven today. I’m assuming some of you may have been stopped by my server changes this past week and weekend. Sorry about that. It should be all fixed now and my future changes – at least near future changes – shouldn’t take my site down.

But now it’s back up for you and I’ll be getting to my schedule of twice weekly updates. Not sure which dates will be my best update days yet but we’ll have to find that out together.

As for now. I’m gathering up some old pieces to clean up while working through a really old character’s back story. And he’s upwards of four hundred years old so there’s plenty of back story there. I may post some bits for you to enjoy because I really want you to be excited over this character. His name is Trevor by the way. You’ll want to keep your eyes open for him.

Anyway, thanks for holding out on me through any issues you may have had with the site. And if you didn’t notice any, apparently you aren’t checking the site often enough. I’m only kidding. I love having you all here and would love for you to visit me often but life is out there and we really shouldn’t be sitting on blogs all day. For those of us who do we should at least get out to talk about what we’ve read there. That would be fun right? I’m sure there are groups in your area who do just that so check them out if that sounds fun to you! (I’d suggest checking meetup.com first though since they just keep growing.)

There’s always more we could be doing so let’s do that. Whatever it may be for each of us. For me it’s writing so I’ll be around. Have a great whatever it is when you’re reading this!


Almost Back

Finals are over. Classes are (mostly) passed. Break is here. Now I just need to rekindle my relationship with sleep which I have abandoned most of these last few weeks.

This isn’t much of an update but I will definitely be getting back to a regular posting schedule very soon. I’m hoping to be back on track by this Friday and no later than Monday. In the meantime, you should check out or reread some of my old posts. Some of them are good enough to read a few times! Or you could follow me over on Facebook for more frequent updates and random bits of whatever. Or sign up for an email follow, link to the RSS feed or follow the blog some other way to stay updated. That way, when I do post something, you’ll hear about it right away!

But for now, this crazy writer college student person thing needs some sleep.


Finals finals everywhere

I’m checking off final projects and exams as I go but I’m still right in the middle of the stress. Luckily I found the eye of this storm and have some time to collect my thoughts. I figured I’d drop you a line and let you know that I’m still doing alright. My biggest project is out of the way now but I still have to battle with my biggest exam and write a few essays.

My apologies for not posting anything for a while. I should have queued up more stuff for while I was busy but I kind of forgot. So before I sign off for today, I’ll queue up some more short pieces from my past for your amusement. As always, I love to hear feedback and your thoughts on a piece.

And yes, I’m much better with prose than I will ever be in poetry. 😉


New buttons around the site

I wanted to point out a lot of cool new pages around this site. (I did a bunch of updating over the weekend.)

Over in Resources, you’ll find cool things that I mention through my posts. I only have the online learning places I mentioned recenty over there now but I’ll continue updating that page with books, websites, articles, and just general writing advice that I find helpful.

The blog now has its own page to make room for me to play around with a homepage. The blog will look the same as before, it just has a designated page now. And the homepage, well, I’m not entirely sure what I want that to look like yet. I’m sure I’ll change that up a few times in the upcoming weeks.

The Books page is my shout out to my future self and a visual trophy for me to strive for. Once I start publishing books, you will see the list of them over here.

Who is this Ryn? is my about page. This is the best place for information about your blogger here. Right now it’s fairly simple and doesn’t give you too much information about myself. Why is this? I just hate about pages. I don’t know what I should put on these sorts of pages so I just wrote up something short. If there is something specific you’d like to know about me, please leave me a comment over on that page.

And last and mainly just a place for you to help me out, a page where you can tell me about broken links or bad things around the site. Drop me a line over at Something Isn’t Working and I’ll take care of the issue.

If there is anything else you would like to see from me, drop me a line in the comments section or
email me

This has been a public service announcement. Your show will return shortly. 🙂


Accidental post

You may have come across a link to a new blog post today but alas, I am not ready to post it so I took it back down. Apologies if you happened to get confused. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, just carry on. You’ll see a real new post from me soon enough. Heck, this can be that post! But really I do have more stuff for you to read soon so keep checking back or subscribe somehow for updates. Plenty of options: email, rss feeds, or through WordPress follows.

I’ll be around.
