Brianna Tries Bullet Journaling

Having too many things to juggle and very little time can be extremely frustrating, and I have tried various planners, organizational apps, and whiteboard methods to avoid the spiraling organizational crisis that can often occur. I spent a lot of time switching back and forth between digital and analog, wondering if I would ever find something that works. It wasn’t until I discovered bullet journaling – a customizable organization method using a physical notebook – that I realized how important it is to match your work style with how you organize yourself.

Hunter, Part 1

Jayson was in agony. He’d faced darkness that would’ve made most men weep with fear. He’d taken punishment that had drawn the color from the faces of onlookers. He’d endured for years the slings and arrows of outrageous expectation, the […]

The World of Apocalypse 1780: Introduction

Apocalypse 1780 is a post-apocalyptic, alternate history universe created by T.J. Hafer. It separates from our timeline in October of 1780, in the middle of the American Revolution, when the largest supervolcano eruption in human history takes place somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. The particulate material thrown into the atmosphere causes an unprecedented, brutal cooling period known as the 12-Year Winter. Combined with pandemic disease outbreaks and the breakdown of civilization, this climate change results in the deaths of more than 750 million of the Earth’s 800 million inhabitants.

Death By Paper Cuts

Five years.

Five years.

Five years since Ava had seen the ad in the paper. Five years since she’d written – and rewritten, and rewritten – her resume. Five years since she’d mustered the entirety of her hopes, her dreams, her ambitions to throw at this one job.

“Your first job is where it all starts,” her father had said to her once. “It’s gotta be at the right place. It’s gotta be under the right people. The first rung in the ladder. Get on it and start climbing.”

Lorecipes: Oregon Trail Chili

No joke – this chili was served on barn raising and harvest days by my great grandparents during their time as homesteaders in Nebraska. Its an easy, hearty chili that can be made more or less spicy depending on how much of a kick you’re looking for.

Best Games of 1998

We’re back with the eighth entry in our series on the best games of all time! Since Loresworn has only been around since 2015, but D.M. and T.J. have been having opinions about games much longer than that, we’re embarking on a journey through every year from 1980 to the present, listing our favorite games that came out each year. Every week we’ll be discussing a specific year, listing what we think are the five best games from that year. At the end of this saga, we will look over all the games from each year to create Top 25 Games of All Time lists for each of us, and a grand Top 100 Games of All Time to stand as Loresworn’s final word on the subject!

What is a Makerspace?

The old school artists’ commune has fallen by the wayside these days. Art is moving into a digital age, and our economy is seeing a growing deficit for skilled, work-with-your-hands kinds of jobs. But with schools finding themselves hard up for funding in art and craft apprenticeship learning, and colleges focusing on profit-driven programs, kids and creatives find themselves with diminishing resources to experiment, create and ultimately learn “maker” skills. To address this void, across the United States, a maker movement has emerged. It’s homegrown, DYI-friendly, and all about inspiring creativity across mediums and all ages.
