New Piece of Writing!

It feels like forever since I last posted a piece of my writing. I wish I could say that is hasn’t been that long but my last posted writing was almost a year ago. I feel ashamed. I could blame school or work, maybe even friends and family; but I think we all know that I am the real culprit in this. My co-conspirators in this long lasting procrastination have been fear and perfectionism.

I think I would be lying if I said no one else has ever felt fear and no artist has ever fallen into the trap of perfectionism. The fears that our work, our baby, is anything but perfect can still the movement of anyone who is not practiced in overcoming those fears. Wanting our work to be perfect can have someone redo what was a wonderful work in and of itself until it is almost unrecognizable from the original.

They say that the first step is always the hardest. Hopefully that saying remains true and I will find it easier to overcome the demons of fear and perfectionism. Though, I will still strive to bring my best work to the internet and all who may read it.

This short little piece is entitled “And We’re Off” and takes place in the Steampunk Innis Seun universe. Barbara takes that first scary step out her front door and out of her city. Read it here.


The AP Roberts is an extremely rare creature and there is only one known AP Roberts in the world. Usually off in its own little world, the AP returns to reality when it gets lonely. This elusive creature is rather difficult to catch on film, however will pose for drawings. The AP, though wild by nature, can be tamed and makes a wonderful pet. It should also be known that while the AP gets along with most creatures it has an intense fear of insects and large canines. The AP lives on a diet of mainly vegetables and candy but is not known to refuse food that is made and offered through kindness. The drink of choice for the AP is tea though it is known to drink water and juice. There is still much to be learned of the AP however, most agree that the writings of the AP are truly something to behold. Hopefully, one day the AP will find a good Agent creature who will introduce the AP's writings to a good publisher creature and the world will be able to read the AP's works.
