Coming Back from Stress Relief

A few days ago, I boarded a train to the Pacific Coast with nothing but a camping backpack strapped to my back. This was five days of beach camping in Carpinteria. It is a small beach town, south of Santa Barbara, CA and right along the Santa Monica…

Really glad to finally get this EP out there. Some of these songs I have been working on for years. A few of these you will recognize from my recent live sets. As well as having some high energy songs, for this EP I really wanted to experiment with some non dance floor related tracks and really get back to my metal and acoustic roots. Hope you guys enjoy! Creation EP out now. iTunes: republicrec.co/SevenLionsCreationEP Apple Music: republicrec...

See those books? I had them for a year now, sitting on my bookshelf, collecting apartment dust. One was partially read. The rest were glanced at whenever interest spikes. I bought them thinking, “Just in case…” Then there’s the issue of fearing…

Just took a long deserved trip for a few days. Carpinteria is south of Santa Barbara. A small town. Where I camped I can walk to a burger joint, coffee shop, local brewery (I recommend their Avocado Honey Ale) surf shop, train station, and good restaurants.

Scrivener is 50% off for 4 days
If you've been wanting to try it, this is a good chance

I just stumbled upon this deal today. I already have Scrivener and love it so I highly recommend it to any writer. It is quite a robust piece of software and actually does far more than I need it to but I keep learning new tricks as I use it to make writing faster and easier.

It also helps me collect thoughts and ideas that I want to save for later, as well as craft character or location profiles. It can output a file in a variety of formats and I used it to create a Word file for my editor to work on.

Rather than me blabbing about it though, check out their website for more details. I'm probably not even doing a sufficient job describing it. Note that I'm *not affiliated with Scrivener or BoingBoing in any way. I just thought this was a good deal for a struggling writer who wants to up their game:

If anybody reading this is going to WonderCon 2016 in Los Angeles, I'll be there as well for all three days sitting at comic book industry panels.
