(I need a break from Pitch Wars revisions.) Ah, Wind Scene. Also known as the overworld music from 600 AD in Chrono Trigger. And for me, the most nostalgic song of the entire game. Yes, even the main theme song. Even Schala's theme. Check out my most recent favorite rendition by Malcolm Robinson: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pUFELL5hHbg It … Continue reading Chrono Trigger’s Wind Scene
The Epic World of Starrs by Adelle Yeung
Fifteen-year-old Michelle saves the world on a daily basis…with her trusty video game controller, of course! Naturally, she jumps at the chance to play an experimental virtual reality game.
The beautiful fantasy world of Starrs? Check. The power to mold matter? Check. No reset button? Wait, she didn’t sign up for this!
Turns out Starrs is really real, and to make matters worse, Michelle’s interference awakens the Cycle of the Six Moons, a series of devastating trials that will devour the universe.
Fighting the apocalypse was way easier when danger stayed on the other side of the screen, but Michelle finds a secret weapon in her new-found powers. She uses them to rescue the crown prince of a powerful magic kingdom from their sworn enemies, a technologically-advanced cult that strives to eradicate magical blood.

The Starriest Summer in RPG Maker
I've been meaning to post this for a while. Back in 2014, I got RPG maker and decided to recreate the first chapter of The Starriest Summer, "The Machine," as a game. It's really short, only takes a few minutes to complete, and some of the tile sets are glitchy. As I made it back … Continue reading The Starriest Summer in RPG Maker

As part of the Goddess Fish Name Before the Masses tour, I've done an interview with BooksChatter!

Why I Don’t Live Off the Tears of My Readers
You see it everywhere in the writing community. It’s on t-shirts, mugs, and prints, in tweets and bios, etc. People say they love destroying feels, they drink the tears of their readers, they live for making their readers cry, and many other forms of the same idea.
I don’t think it is said in a way that is meant to be malicious or uncaring. But I think it is possible that it is said without giving thought to the future implications for both reader and author.
I want to take my job seriously
I love writing, and if I am a professional author I need to be considerate of my audience, who enables me to do what I love. Do some people like having their feels destroyed? Yes. Double yes. It’s not always bad. But the thing that separates a good writer from a manipulative writer is how they do…
