#SamWIP: Something about Dreams?


Today is a new day! Our blog has undergone some changes, as you have probably noticed! Here they are in written form:

For starters, our NAME has changed. twindragonsjourney.wordpress.com has been DISCONTINUED. We will now be located solely at kalopsiad.wordpress.com


Kalopsia–The delusion of things being more beautiful than they are.

-iad is an allusion to The Iliad.

So this is now our Adventure of Deluding Ourselves into Seeing Beauty Where There Perhaps Is None. Our schedule will be as follows:

    • Sam will vlog about writing progress, status, and updates about her current project(s). This will be categorized under #SamWIP.
    • We will discuss issues that we believe should concern the world. Frankie will likely spend more time discussing animal activism, rights, and treatment. I will probably head towards human rights issues, particularly American politics and world social concerns. This will be categorized under #OurWorld
    • We will discuss whatever we want. This will usually be current news and events surrounding our favorite hobbies–anime, manga, books, video games, movies, television, etc.–but could also simply be our wild card day in case something exciting happens. This will be categorized under #WhateverWednesday
    • Frankie will vlog about writing progress, status, and updates about her current project(s). This will be categorized under #FrankieWIP.
    • We will use this day to share tips, tricks, and tools we use to help us with our own writing with the general purpose of helping our friends (you) to become better writers. This will be categorized under #WriteTip, which is a popular Twitter hashtag as well.
    • We will use this day to appreciate art in all of its forms. We may use it to discuss cover art or artists, show off some of our own stuff, or showcase an artist we appreciate. This will be categorized under #WeCreate
    • We will use this day to discuss and/or review the stories of others. These could be television shows, books, movies, graphic novels, video games, or anywhere you can find a good tale. This will be categorized under #SundayReview

Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays we will alternate who is posting. Monday will always be Sam. Thursday will always be Frankie.

Let us know what you think!!!

S.K. Balk lives in the frozen wasteland of Northern Michigan. She is the author of the dystopian medical sci-fi THE BLOOD OF NERYS.


About oneofthedragons

Samantha K. Balk and F. R. Donaldson met on An Archive of Our Own, one of the many fanfiction sites online, when Sam asked Frankie to illustrate the fanfiction that would one day lead to Sam's first novel. They've been friends ever since! This blog was created as a way to share the oftentimes difficult journey any new author experiences on the uncomfortable quest of an introvert for attention to his or her most personal work. It is meant to remind you that authors don't just appear fully fledged like a George R. R. Martin, that all of us start out unsure and feeling inadequate. Feel free to ask us anything.
