Fair warning: This may turn out to be another one of those whiny “too much honesty from a random internet writer” kinds of entries no one likes. You are invited to skip it. There’s enough venom and vitriol flying around the internet, so if my adding to it would be too much, I wish you… Continue reading WHEN YOU CAN’T FIND YOUR WHY
2021 began with a political nightmare (when it should have been such a pleasant waking from one) and ended kind of the same way, albeit with less violence and insurrection. It feels like the world has gone crazy. In the bad way. People have forgotten how to be people, and I feel bad for all… Continue reading NEW YEAR, SAME GOALS
What? You weren’t awaiting this post? Well, I guess that means you should skip it and come back next week. Yes, I said week. We’ll talk about that at the end. Also, just the usual heads-up: This is a LOOOOOOOOOOONG blog entry. There is a lot for me to unpack. If you’re not interested in… Continue reading THE LONG-AWAITED NANOWRIMO RECAP POST

The “is” people will tell you that your writing has not been vetted by the proper people, that it has not been through the rigorous editing process. You are an unknown quantity, and only certain people are qualified to… Continue reading WHY I CHOSE TO INDIE (SELF) PUBLISH

I’ll take my revenge by getting older and older, and when time no longer recognizes me… uh… well, it will keep passing. That’s just what… Continue reading THE MID-YEAR CHECK-IN
Wow, can you believe we are already almost halfway through another year? Time flies when you’re sitting on your keister staring at a screen watching YouTube videos when you’re not at JOB. Or commuting to and from JOB. But more on that later. The first thing to announce is so important there is actually a… Continue reading JUNE IS AUDIOBOOK MONTH (AND OTHER TRUE STORIES)
What you are looking at is the cover to the book I have been tinkering with since November, 2018. Okay, that was the month I wrote the first draft. People donated to my NaNoWriMo fundraiser to have characters named after them — characters who would meet brutal and bloody ends. I purchased this cover before… Continue reading COMEDY OF TERRORS: COMING VERY SOON!
What I am calling Year of the Hindsight has started with a fizzle. Lofty goals and intentions have petered out and been replaced with the same old lethargy and laziness that has plagued my existence since I can remember. Let’s break this down: WRITING IN PUBLIC When the word-count goal was first conceived, I intended… Continue reading FIRST POST! (OF 2020)
Here’s what happened in 2019 and what I intend to do in 2020.
