Once my fingers are hovering above the keys they're mostly moving naturally and furiously. In these scenarios, I'm just translating to the page a story that is mentally engaging in my own mind.

I think if I were to be sitting there and not typing it would be because I was trying to tell a specific kind of story, which I simply don't feel qualified to do. In that case, I would try to catch myself doing that, reset, and then commence typing whatever image is actually on the projector of my mind. I'd do this even if it had no relation to the story I'd been writing before, because writing for me is a process I want to enjoy at all times and not ever force.(less)

A Civilands Series Sea Shanty: “The Keagan Anthem”

 The above song is based on the melody to the Wellerman (Sea Shanty). All lyrics and vocals are my own. The inspiration to do this came from the Game Stop saga and subsequent, hilarious sea shanty meme. A few weeks after that meme released, a friend requested I re-work the lyrics for a video game contest he entered. The objective of the contest was to write an inspirational piece based on the hi
