so i’m launching a podcast!!

Hey guys! Just a quick note to announce something that I probably should have announced a while ago, but I kind of have been so busy it slipped my mind, and anyhow, here we are! So, without further ado, as the title indicates, I am…

*drumroll please*

*take a wild guess you guys*

LAUNCHING A PODCAST SOON! ISH! LIKE BY THE END OF MARCH I FEEL LIKE PROBABLY!

I don’t have the exact release date down, other than that I have about ten episodes left to record and five left to write, but I’ll let you know as I get to the point where I’m done enough with this project that I can put a date on when it’ll be ready to get out into the world. 🙂

What is it about?

Sonnets of a Teenage Wannabe is a mix of nonfiction podcast and audio drama. My goal is for it to have this really intimidate, ambient feel, like a late-night phone call with someone you haven’t talked to in a long time. It’s told in bite-sized, diary entries discussing pretty much whatever’s on my mind, mixed with found audio and some music here and there. It’s honest and heartfelt and gentle and I hope it can be there for you, on the long nights or days, when you can’t breathe, when you don’t want to move, when you just want it all to stop, when feel completely alone in the world. I hope it can be there for you.

(Wow, that actually turned out really elegant and poetic, wow, I am so proud of myself right now.)

Where can I listen to it?

I’m still really new to this and learning how the whole podcasty thing works, but if everything goes according to plan it should be available on basically every popular podcast streaming platform–Apple Podcasts, Google Play Music, Spotify, Pandora, etc. (If there are any streaming services you’d like to request, just drop me a comment.) It’ll also be available to stream on this website, I’ll put a link in here when it launches. (And also, it’ll be on my main menu, so yeah.)

Does it cost to listen to it?

Nope! I do have a Patreon that’s a bit of a mess right now but feel free to chuck money at me if you like my stuff, the link is here. 🙂

Um, yeah, I think that’s pretty much it. I can’t wait for you guys to see this thing, I’m so freaking proud of it, and I hope you love the show as much as I do. Okay, um, with that out of the way, Dragon out! 🙂

 

quick announcement

hey guys! i don’t have much time to go into depth about this, and i’ll give you a big massive post all about my social media and blogging plans over the summer, but right now all i have the time to say is that I AM ON YOUTUBE!!! listen to “while listening to sleeping at last” in the video below and tell me what you think in the comments, and if you have youtube remember to hit the thumbs up button. 🙂

announcements and wattpad and my life

hello my angsty internet strangers! so: i homeschool, which is how i have the time to maintain this blog and all the social media and stuff. also, drumroll please… I’M DONE ALL MY SCHOOLWORK FOR THIS YEAR!! (more or less; i still have corrections on one assignment and a french test.) so because i have all that free time and empty brain space, i’m planning on posting more often on this blog, since for the next four months i’m going to have a lot more free time. so from now on, i’ll post on mondays and fridays. i’ll probably ramp up my posting later in the summer, but for now i’m going to keep it at that.

also, for those of you who don’t know, i have a wattpad account, and i just posted a short story. it’s called the sleep and it’s about an insomniac who uses the internet alias starryskye.e. she’s lonely, and kind of me as a 19-year-old university student studying astrophysics, and she designs a robot to be her friend, called SootheBot. the story chronicles her friendship with SootheBot and talks a lot about philosophy and mental health and angst, and it’s awesome. read it here if you want: https://www.wattpad.com/story/188806434-the-sleep. and if you have wattpad, you can follow me here: https://www.wattpad.com/user/dragonwritesthings. (yes, my username is dragonwritesthings. don’t judge! i am VERY PROUD OF MY USERNAME.)

if you missed the poems i posted yesterday, they can be read here, here, here, here, and here. 🙂

big hug and deep breath,
