Time flies, blah blah blah

Yeah, it's really been since July since I've been 'round these parts. On the not-short list of things I find obnoxious is writers who continually post about their lack of posting (the not-short list also includes stuff like people who don't put their shopping carts in corrals, olives, and 99 degree weather), so I usually opt for radio silence. But since it has been a few months...

The long and short of it is this: Geek with Curves is the place I started. I turned to Blogger in 2009 and started piecing together a place to write with only the vaguest ideas of where I wanted it to go and what I wanted it to be. I've been all over the place with topics. I've used my little corner of the Internet to stretch different sorts of writing muscles and to build a body of work to point at and say, "I made this." I wanted to be active, to actually do something rather than only saying I would do it. I succeeded at that part. And so, so many readers kept me going by engaging with me via emails and comments and tweets - I appreciate all the support I received and continue to receive. It's a weird and wonderful thing that anyone reads words I write, much less takes the time to tell me they've read those words.

But I digress

Eventually, I started writing for other places than my blog. And then much, much later, I found myself writing for enough other outlets that I jumped into the freelance life (and regardless of being as secure as I could be, it was indeed a headfirst, fuck-it-all sort of jump) full time. I'll hit my two year freelance-versary in January. I've happily kept busy writing about TV, books, cosplay, Disney, and a whole lot of Star Wars. I've worked some less than exciting copywriting gigs in there as well. The side effect of all that is paid work takes priority and I cover a whole lot of topics I'd normally write about here for other outlets. It's a good problem to have, but it means I post here less and less.

TL;DR (I only recently looked up what TL;DR means and it comes in handy for an over-explainer like me and yes, I just over-explained why I'm using TL:DR. I think I did it wrong.): I post less here because I'm writing elsewhere more frequently.

I know, you're probably dying to know where else exactly. And even if you're not on the edge of your seat waiting to find out, I'm going to tell you. These are a few places you can track me down: Nerdist (TV/entertainment news, op-eds, Star Wars stuff, book reviews, TV reviews), IGN (mostly TV reviews, some interviews, and convention coverage – written and on camera), (all Star Wars all the time), Comic Book Resources (mostly interviews), Adafruit (mostly cosplay), (all Game of Thrones all the time) and Star Wars Insider magazine. I pop up on other sites here and there and also co-host Full of Sith and The Comlink.

I'm not abandoning this ship. I would never. If I was done, I'd go down with the ship like a proper captain. But that day's not coming anytime soon – just know I'm around and completely reachable even if I'm not posting on any sort of regular schedule.
