MEGATRON IS SO PROUD

Dear Gandalf, You know I have been incredibly proud of you and your new white status don’t you? Of course you do! We have become quite the texting fiends. And I gotta tell people… the WIP our dear Gandalf is currently working on is MAGIC! You are a constant inspiration to me, my dear wizard. I never […]

MEGATRON LOSES BEER PONG

Dear Gandalf, HOLYSHITBUCKET A FLOOD! I’m so glad you are ok. But in your resume you can now say you are a flash flood survivor AKA  a badass. At least you got something fantastic out of the ordeal. I’ll leave it to you to unveil the surprise! And pictures are a must. I finished your […]

MEGATRON GETS A RAMSHACKLE WRITING OFFICE

Gandalf! How exciting! A critique group is essential and I’m so glad you’ve got this new opportunity. I’ve got random critique groups assigned in my creative writing class, but there is also another opportunity to join the Literally Army which is a group of 10 or so writers who do their own thing outside of […]

MEGATRON BEARS GIFTS

Dear Gandalf, I’m glad you announced your big move. I have been so proud of you these last few weeks. I’m surprised that we are both on such a roll. The critique group got The Plastic Divide yesterday. I hit the hard question: if you bought this for $.99 would you be satisfied with your […]

MEGATRON FRETS

Hey Gandalf, It feels like it’s been ages. I’m bummed to realize we both currently suck on the writing front. We really need to get on it. But I’m satisfied with the 900 words or so I wrote yesterday—a pittance, but it is at least moving in the right direction. As you may have probably […]

MEGATRON FORGOT A TITLE

Dear Gandalf, I received my new computer today. I feel inspired to write something on it. So I decided to write to you. I’ve been very busy lately–mostly just keeping myself entertained so I don’t watch TV. One would expect me to actually be on the computer more, but that hasn’t been the case. I’ve […]

MEGATRON THINKS GANDALF IS THE BEST

In case any of you missed it, Gandalf bought me a very classy cake. Nothing is better than seeing oneself fighting Optimus Prime on a delectable pastry treat.  For my 21st birthday I decided to NOT drink. I thought it would be funny to quit drinking before I turned 21. Not that I have a […]

MEGATRON FINISHES UNFINISHED BUSINESS

I forgot to answer some of your questions in the last entry. I don’t think your query needs to be super informative. I think of it more as a cliffhanger or at least a little sample so the agent is left wanting more. Would I want to read the story based on that query? Not […]

MEGATRON TRIES TO HELP GANDALF

Gavyn Perishing is a one-armed ginger who has bigger problems. Like a random hot guy bursting through her bedroom door on what was supposed to be an uneventful snow day. That, on top of an armed thug on the other side of said door. But the main issue is this whole “shifting” business.                 Imagine […]

MEGATRON HAS BEEN A BUSY BUSY BEE

Dear Gandalf, Your winterguard teams were a joy to watch, as always. A big congrats on that! And I’m especially glad we figured out we could text each other (a true *palmface* moment). Well I got the job, which is exciting. I feel like I mentioned it to you, if not it was on my […]
