Waggish Writer Week 6 Reflections

Hello and thank you for taking the time to visit Waggish Writer.

Week 6 feels that it has flown by with me taking what feels like one blink to discover it is time for another round of reflections.


One of the things I had accomplished for Waggish Writer was sharing it existed to the universe via Facebook, gaining several subscribers to a total of 11 for the website. If I think about how young the website is, I am flabbergasted and moved by the support. Nothing helps light up an author than knowing their work is making a connection to readers. A challenge with doing the blog is staying on top of it. However, I find ways to do it. I predominately bribe myself with either food, drink, or a fun activity.


Speaking of fun, my partner and I donned masks and carried hand sanitizer with us as we ventured to Vault of Midnight in downtown Ann Arbor a few days. It was a nice change to do something somewhat normal. Pre-Covid-19, the Vault of Midnight is a favorite haunt of ours. We admire the manga, feast our eyes on the miniature figures, and gaze wistfully at the many DND handbooks and manuals lining the shelves.


The comic store allowed visitors, prepared with masks as they require them for the store. Hand sanitizer and signs on the floor advertising to maintain six feet from each other. Our venture was the most satisfying and lead to the acquisition of "The Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia."


I am cautiously optimistic that things will get better. This hope is based on the wish that everyone does their part. Wear a mask. Keep 6 feet apart. Keep hands clean. Avoid touching face in the public. Part of the optimism comes from the weather that seems to be sunny even though I know storms are brewing.


During this time, I have been reconsidering one of my personas' focus: Author. As much as I would like to launch new projects for my Author persona, I feel my energy will best be sent to focus on the "Divine Devices" series and "Samurai Sisters" until the projects are finished. When the first drafts are finished, I can then decide where to shift my focus.


A tentative plan I do have for "Samurai Sisters" is to revise the first draft. There is a possibility of having a fellow creator illustrate some of the scenes from the short story. We will have to see if the idea pans out and what I shall do with a revised & illustrated edition of "Samurai Sisters."


Besides creating, I am staying safe and keeping myself busy to maintain my sanity, picking up some shifts at my day as a barista. I look forward where we return to normal, whatever we may find normal to be after everything that is happening.


Thanks for visiting my reflection. Stay safe and healthy everyone!
