Twitter Poll

Commissioning Art. I haven’t done a Twitter poll in a while, but I’ve been inspired by one of my resolutions for 2020. I want to commission at least one piece of art every month, either of characters or scenes from my stories. Certainly a splurge. But it’s a treat I can share. Options are manifold, so I thought a poll would be fun. Who do you think is most “deserving” of art?

Four Favorites: Anime Categories

I watch a lot of anime. Probably not a shock, right? It’s the whole reason I’m even around. My first forays into fiction writing were in an anime fandom. But my whole world doesn’t revolve around InuYasha. I’ve watched scores of anime across a wide variety of genres. People sometimes ask me for recommendations, which I find difficult. I mean, I can’t just say, “You’ll love this!” because I did. Expectations vary. As do tastes.

This year, one of my little resolutions is to talk more about the anime I watch (and the manga I read). So I’ll do blog posts now and then to chat about personal favorites. And since it’s as good a starting point as any, let’s talk genre. Most people have a favorite or two. It’s the kind of story we like best. A category. Like action, romcom, or psychological suspense.

LMM 104: The Catch

Claimer: I do hereby claim all rights and responsibility for the characters in this series of vignettes because the Amaranthine Saga is mine. (Which means I should probably behave myself since anything I say or do could be taken as canon.) Indulge the lot of us, especially the one who likes to be clear.
