Blog Every Day August (BEDA 2)

For those of you not in the know, you might have noticed the little (BEDA) in the title of yesterday's post. What that stands for, as if you couldn't already tell by the title of today's post, is Blog Every Day August. And what that means is (again, as if you couldn't already tell) I'll be posting a new blog every day throughout the month of August.

In the past, my blogs have had a tendency to be kind of all over the place, though most recently, I've tried to give them a little more focus. Lately I've mainly stuck to writing about movies, with the occasional personal blog here and there. Reading my old, old blogs, I came to the realization that I didn't much care for a lot of my personal posts, because, well, I had a tendency to be kind of whiny and obnoxious in a lot of them. So whenever I do make a personal post these days, I try to keep it as upbeat and fun as I can.

As for what I intend to post throughout this month, well I kinda doubt that I'll be able to keep it strictly movies for an entire month, and I'm not even sure that I want to do that. For instance, I'm also participating in Camp NaNoWriMo this month, so I'm sure I'll speak more on that at some point, among other things. Basically, I'm allowing myself the freedom to jump all over the place should I see fit, before re-focusing myself again once the month is over.

So that's what's going on with the blog this month. I'm already enjoying reading all of the other BEDA participants' blogs, and I hope you'll all drop by here from time to time as well. And please feel free to leave any comments or feedback, I'd love to hear what you all think. Whether you agree with a point I made, have a differing opinion, or even if you just wanna say hi, I wanna hear it!

And since this post has essentially become the introductory post that yesterday was probably supposed to be, I suppose I should go ahead and actually introduce myself a bit. So lets see, a little about me. Well, I recently quit my day job to be a writer. I suppose I've been writing for a while, though it's only in the past few years that I've really started to take it seriously. I write novels, typically of the fantastic variety, and I'm working on getting published, hopefully sooner rather than later.

But while I write a lot, I'm admittedly not especially huge on reading, though George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire has sort of changed that for me as of late. But while I don't read actual books as often as I probably should, I do delve into comics and manga quite a bit, so that counts for something, right?

Besides, I tend to be more of a visual medium kinda guy. And as such, I also like to watch the occasional movie. I get a bad rap for only liking "bad movies", but that's not true at all. The movies I like totally aren't bad, no way. And even if they are bad, then that just means they're so bad, they're good!

Oh, and I like chicken. What can I say, it's delicious!


  1. Who doesn't like chicken? With ranch dressing of course! Because what Southern girl ignores an opportunity to put ranch dressing on something? (Hint: NOT this one!)

  2. I am amazed that you are taking on BEDA and Campe NaNaWriMo at the same time. I love BEDA, and NaNoWriMo is near and dear to my heart, but I'm pretty sure I could only ever handle one at a time. I'm sure it'll be tons of fun, though!

    I look forward to many BEDA posts to come!

  3. Yeah, I really wanted to do Camp Nano, but I neglected to do it last month. I just decided on a whim to tackle BEDA as well, and so far it's going well enough. Thanks for the replies, guys! :)

  4. Heaven is a Nic Cage movie marathon and a box of Publix fried chicken. Good luck with Camp Nano and BEDA. I'll be struggling along with/behind you.
