Writer Imperfect?

I’ve been popping by Twitch here in the last few weeks. I go through fazes. I’m there watching art and gaming and next, I’m gone. I was told there was a new podcast/Twitch channel that focused on being creative, for writers, the industry of writing, and it featured actual authors, publishers, and even you guessed it…writers!Of course, I had to check this out. Here’s a list of reasons why you should be checking it out as well.

  • It’s new. Giving a new podcast or form of media like a Twitch channel is a really good way to connect live with others.
  • It deals with writing and things that go on within the writing/indie/self-pub community. This is great for those that are interested in this field or are currently in it!
  • You can ask questions and get answers! Sometimes we have questions we just can’t find answers for or while watching something we develop questions and want instant information, this provides just that.
  • Features persons from the writing industry. That’s right, not just writers. I’ve already seen publishers. I’m sure I’ll see all reaches of the industry the longer its on.
  • You could be on it or see someone you know! They have openings to be a guest. Find a date that is full? The perks of this and others like it being new or in the beginning is there’s always plenty of options for booking. I couldn’t find one for myself so I’ll have to wait, but that doesn’t mean you won’t see me down the road!

Here’s what they have to say about themselves:
Writer Imperfect will be launched in 2019 as an expansion of the #Author365 hashtag that Joshua Robertson began in 2018 in hopes of shining the spotlight on the vast talent and knowledge of other writers/creatives in the industry. Taking place up to three times per week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday), Joshua will be hosting a live broadcast on Twitch with writers to speak about the craft, the industry, and their own personal journeys. While some shows might have specialized topics, Writer Imperfect will be focusing more on natural conversation and interaction–which may prove to be as imperfect as the name suggests. It might also prove to be rich with content. You will have to tune in to find out!

The Veil: Formerly WTF Cryptos – What’s coming to the website

WTF Cryptos originally began, by me, on the website The Buzzkill Magazine. I wanted to share my love of cryptozoology and the paranormal. It was a short-lived series on the website as I stepped down from working for TBK. The inspiration was just because it was something I had become interested in over the years but was something I had used to help others that came to me asking questions. Having this fountain of knowledge in some a ‘different’ area has helped me with researching for my own stories, but knowing so much on things I may never use seemed like a waste so I began sharing what I knew.

If you do not know what cryptozoology is let me define it for you. Cryptozoology is a pseudoscience and subculture that aims to prove the existence of entities from the folklore record, such as Bigfoot, the chupacabra, or Mokele-mbembe. Cryptozoologists refer to these entities as cryptids, a term coined by the subculture.

The name ‘WTF Cryptos’ was one of those things I debated and since I have decided to bring it back, some, here I decided to expand the subjects and that meant giving it a new name…The Veil.

I do recommend you going over to The Buzzkill Magazine. The website covers a large range of subjects. There’s a little something for everyone, seriously! They do podcasts, awards, cover conventions, special appearances in interviews, and so much more.

28 DoBR: The Gashlycrumb Tinies by Edward Gorey

This is a darker entry and it’s a children’s book. I was looking up artist in the middle of the night some time back and came across Gorey. I love his style and he’s become one of my favorite artists. I had seen little gifs of his work that had come alive on the internet, but none of them credited the artist. It was after I found out about Gorey that I connected the dots. The Gashlycrumb Tinies is a book he illustrated about the…well the journey each child had taken.


A new, small-format edition of one of Edward Gorey’s “dark masterpieces of surreal morality” (Vanity Fair): a witty, disquieting journey through the alphabet.
