Buttercup of Doom ep03: Do Over

BOD-epDoOver300Now Available at Project iRadio!

In this episode I hijack my own formatting and replace the reading with a fun twist. Then I merge that topic into how and why characters need to be three-dimensional rather than cardboard cutouts in Writing 101: Tips from the Kiddie Pool. Then I bitch piss and moan about people oversharing on the book of many faces. But rather than hanging you out there all peeved, I offer a smile worthy video for you to peek at and leave you with a great reason to go underwear shopping!

Buttercup of Doom ep02: Second Place

BOD-ep02second

Now Available at Project iRadio!

In this episode I read from a childhood favorite and then discuss reading with your kids (or with your parents when you were the kid). I cover cliches vs tropes in Writing 101: Tips from the Kiddie Pool. I lose my mind completely on the topic of participation awards, trigger warnings, and political correctness on a whole. But I lighten it all up with an amazingly funny comedian and a little piece of chocolate…

Buttercup of Doom ep01: Welcome to the End

BOD-ep01welcome

Now Available at Project iRadio!

In this episode I discuss this, smile about that, destroy the idea of that while I rant about that, and have a moment about that other thing… and while I may tell you what I will discuss in this spot for future episodes, I will not for this one. The virgin voyage should be a surprise.

I will tell you the following people/parties are involved on some level… with love and respect and, of course, some snark.
