Valiant Efforts

As of two days ago, I'm gathering the poetry that would be the first third of my next collection and I'm preparing bits of it to be sent off to contests and magazines. That seems to be the next logical step in my writing career, since I've already published a few collections. Really, I'm partially... Continue Reading →

The Swing of Things.

Having the opportunity to support my wife throughout pregnancy and in child birth has been something I've really enjoyed taking time off for. While I have been working my day job throughout most of this time, the brief sabbatical from peripheral tasks has really allowed me to absorb the full spectrum of emotions we've been...

I’m back!

It looks like I've been neglecting this poor site. Since my last post, I've published a new novel, 40 x 491. I've written another after that, as well as half of 40's sequel. Not that it matters at this point, but I'm not planning on putting that sequel out until two others are published. One... Continue Reading →

Today, as a writer views it.

The new plant in my office brought a few bugs in with it. I've been sitting here smashing the little dudes for three days. It's always dark in here, so I'm hoping the strip of LEDs is enough for the plant, but not enough for the bugs. Either that or I'll smash them all at... Continue Reading →

That’s not where I left it…. is it?

Let's say you've got part of a novel's first draft done. Four chapters knocked out. Something happens and you decide to stop working that project for a bit. Maybe a glitch in the matrix makes you forget about it for six months, who knows? So, you finally sit down at your computer, ready to attack... Continue Reading →

What I’ve Learned About Writing

As I pass the halfway point in year two of taking writing seriously, I'm able to look back and see all of the wonderful lessons I've learned. It's really something amazing that I can compile a good sized list of these things after such a short time. Since I am able to put together a... Continue Reading →

New Poetry

I've got a poetry book that's just about ready for release. It'll be out before my second novel, sometime this Fall, probably. This next collection is called "In your Gourd, Off the Dime" and is inspired by the latest works of David Lynch, among other things. It's meant to be a little more obtuse and... Continue Reading →
