SHOTS NOT TAKEN

There is a saying. I believe it was originally some kind of sportsball quote but has been paraphrased to death. I hear it all the time lately, because it is a lyric in a song that’s on one of my “frequently listened” playlists. I’ve even looked up the quote for the purpose of this blog… Continue reading SHOTS NOT TAKEN

EYES AND EARS: A PERSONAL SAGA

Welcome to the roller coaster that is life. If you’re just joining us, sorry for the crap show. It was like this even before I got here. And the people in charge are just making it worse and worse. There have been some developments in both my public and personal worlds, interestingly represented by eyes… Continue reading EYES AND EARS: A PERSONAL SAGA

THE 2024 GOAL THINGY

created using BlueWillow

Another year, another entry about writing goals. The thing I try to keep in mind when doing these is that, although officially I am running a business, this is very much still a hobby to me.

And neither movie could possibly happen the way… Continue reading ESSAY: THE TERMINATOR PARADOX

LIFE, OR NOTHING LIKE IT

It’s another month where I have nothing of any real interest to say, and this time I don’t even have anything I’m particularly pumped about sharing here. I read Drew Barrymore’s memoir Wildflower, which I really liked, but beyond that my life is pretty much a void. (Not in the nihilistic, “existential crisis” sense, just… Continue reading LIFE, OR NOTHING LIKE IT

AN ODE TO RACHAEL HERRON

Created with BlueWillow

For a moment, I considered skipping the blog entry for June. The truth of the matter is that I haven’t done anything worth reporting. I can’t think of what to write. My brain has been in something of a fog, likely due to lack of sleep. (I’ve been staying up too late watching stuff.) And… Continue reading AN ODE TO RACHAEL HERRON

ANALYSIS PARALYSIS

(Or, HOW AI HAS MADE ME INCAPABLE OF DECIDING WHAT TO WRITE) Hello imaginary people on the internet who I pretend care about the things I have to say. It is your old pal, Random Writer from the internet. Today I want to talk about a phenomenon I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned once or twice… Continue reading ANALYSIS PARALYSIS
