Introducing Beta Reading, Line Editing, and Sensitivity Reading Services!

Yep, I pretty much live/breathe/obsess over writing constantly, and editing is something I know I’m good at/do in my sleep. So I figure I might as well open that skill-set up to anyone who needs it, and support my own writing/art/disabled-creator existence while I’m at it. (I’m serious about that ‘editing in my sleep’ thing.… Continue reading Introducing Beta Reading, Line Editing, and Sensitivity Reading Services!

Koru Mag’s Issue 2 Is Here! (I have 2 poems in it!)

This special issue, focusing on fandom/fan art/fiction/poetry, is absolutely incredible, and full of amazing articles, stories and poetry! I highly, really recommend checking it out, and don’t think you’ll be disappointed

Mine are “One Thousand Years” and “Changelings,” about Disney’s GARGOYLES and the ANIMORPHS book series, respectively. It felt so good to write about them, and having published fan-poetry is kind of a dream come true. I also wrote blog posts explaining the poems, and those should go up on the magazine’s site soon!

So I’ve been thinking hard about what I could possibly offer everyone in this trying time – and at first I didn’t know, because I’m an artist/writer/chronically ill nerd, and often, that feels like sitting around doing Nothing Practical While The World Burns. But then, ah-dunk! I actually do… Continue reading If I Have Not Screamed Today About The Wonders Of Patreon, I Have Not Been Doing My Job Right: A Semi-Definitive Guide by Sylver

Write What You Know, Write Your #OwnVoice

Excerpt: Even when [marginalized people are] writing our own stories. We get hit with the “unrealistic” criticism. Because marginalized people existing and doing heroic things is just hard to believe, even if it’s just one, but especially if it’s two or more. That’s just outside the realm of possibility. And if you’re a marginalized author writing any of the above… well, you should really just rein it in, tone it down, and write something a little more… believable.

Featured Article – Touching The Sky: The True Story Of Eddie The Eagle

Entertainment website Moviepilot.com recently sent me to an advance screening of biopic “Eddie the Eagle,” on the true story of British Olympic ski-jumper Michael “Eddie” Edwards, and I wrote this piece focusing on the real guy behind the upcoming film. It was honestly one of my highlights of the new year, because the movie (which I recommend even as someone who has never seen an athletics-themed movie basically ever) is essentially an explosion of earnest optimism and unpretentious happy, which in a sea of grimdark ‘gritty’ reboots is… just. Kind of a ray of hope. And something I personally needed.
