The Journey Begins Anew!



Thanks for joining me!
Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton
There are a lot of changes going on. I struggled for a long time to figure out what to do. I wanted a business that encompasses everything I do rather than have multiple businesses. I didn't want to deal with the taxes, nor the administration of a site for each endeavor I undertake.

Thus, The Write Buttons is born.

I'm a writer and a sewer.

I also dabble in music and have plans for that eventually.

Tiny Samurai isn't going away, it's just taking on a new form.

I've purchased my new domain name for 88 cents tonight!

I'm just waiting for it to flip to active.

One thing? I've been scared of the logistics involved in shipping items. Other than the name issue, I had been letting this hold me back.

Well, no more! It's time I just jump in and see where I end up.

On the writing front, I'm working on a short documentary. It's taking up a lot of my time right now, but it will be done soon. It's for Digi60, which takes place next month! It's the story of a BC indigenous woman who overcame alcoholism through roller derby after escaping abuse. I'm so happy to be part of this amazing project!

I also recently rewrote a resume for a client on a short deadline.

Sewing wise, I have a little project I'm finishing up at home involving a couch cover for a new-to-me leather loveseat I got for free. It has a little seam issue that has required tape to repair. As it's the winter months, I'm making a cover for it out of fleece. The pattern happens to be Spongebob. I was never all that into the show when I was younger, but now I find it quite funny. I also got a good deal on the fabric, which is predominately my favourite colour ;)

Once that is done, it's time to get rolling.

With gratitude,
Rae-Rae a.k.a The Tiny Samurai

Under Siege

My city is under attack. I wish I was being facetious.  The so-called "freedom" convoy is here and so far this is what has transpired: 1. They parked on the war memorial. These people who call themselves patriots. This is where the Unknown Soldier rests. This is where Corporal Nathan Cirullo lost his life in October of 2014. The cars were towed, but who knows what actual repercussions they will face. 2. Later, when asked to move away from memorial, one stood and jumped on the tomb itself while others cheered.  3. Despite having port-a-potties provided for by the mayor, they've been defecating on Parliament Hill, in snowbanks, and on streets nearby.  4. Flags being flown include the Confederate flag of the United States, Trump flags, the Quebec equivalent to the Confederate flag, upside down Canada flags, regular Canada flags, Fuck Trudeau flags, libertarian flags, and ones adorned with swastikas. Yeah, this is totally about freedom rather than racism, white su

A Lot of Bullspit - 2020 ROW80 R3-W5

This week has had a lot of bullspit in it. Shortly after my last trip to buy reno supplies, I discovered mold in my bathroom. While that's not shocking, it's pretty much because they appear to have left wet drywall in the wall and covered the wall with another layer of drywall instead of properly repairing it after a leak. Geniuses. This is a mixed bag. It means I may have to do the tub area sooner than I expected. It is the same wall as the annoying peeling paint, so that's kind of good. I may just need to replace much of the wall, which is about 1.5 drywall boards because it's a small room. Cost wise, the wall repair isn't so bad. I'm not looking forward to having to deal with it, but I acquired the PPE gear for it and the mold removal supplies. Now, here's where the project may change substantially. I was originally planning to install a tub surround over the tile and then use the Rust Oleum tub restore stuff, but if there is mold in the wall, it's li

OIW - Book Cover Design Seminar

On May 22nd, I went to a seminar on book cover design. Before the information was presented on design, the author of Imposter Bride, Nancy Richler , read part of her first chapter and the story sounds intriguing. Lately, I am preferring to read the work of other Ottawa-area authors. Perhaps someday it will be my book that they read in turn. Currently, I am reading The Crimson Man by Patricia K McCarthy and though it is not in my genre, it is a fiery read. Ladies, you'll enjoy it. So far it feels heated like 50 Shades of Grey, but with more substance and a higher level of writing skill. At the beginning of the meeting, announcements were made about newly published works by members of the Ottawa Independent Writers group. The Autism Story is written as fiction by a university professor that specializes in the area. It sounds interesting as well. Nancy Richler answered questions about publishing after she completed her reading. Here is what I took from it: 1. Avoid small pr
