This Close to Sitting Ducks

Ah, the feeling of a new home. My wife and I are living out of boxes and bags at the moment, waiting for a big day of moving tomorrow. I figured while I have some down time, I might as well write up a quick post. My third novel has been sent off to my... Continue Reading →

Hi Everyone! It's been a crazy past few weeks here in New Mexico. I finished the first draft of my third novel, Just in time to edit my second before November! While finishing up novel two, I'm also rereleasing my books with new formatting, redoing my website and social media, and starting to really dig... 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

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 →

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 →

Piece of a WIP

Here's a bit from what will eventually be novel three. I'm just about 40k into it, and probably about half done, so it's going extremely well. It's so different writing this book. My first attempt, though enjoyable, was a lackluster, confusing process when I look back at it. I'm happy with that book, but I... Continue Reading →

Novel Updates!

It's been a crazy summer! Weddings, milestone birthdays, family from out of town staying with my wife and I. Whew! I'm glad my schedule has finally cleared up enough that I can work on my tech series, and get back to writing my novels. I got about a quarter into novel three when my editor... Continue Reading →

Top Class

Since I'm doing a tech writing series, I thought I'd do something a little fun. I know a lot of people prefer htop to top, on Linux, and that's valid, but I feel like a lot of folks ignore, or are unaware of, the awesome power of a lot of the built in tools you... Continue Reading →

A new light

So I'm streaming my writing sessions on twitch now. I couldn't find a text editor that looked pretty enough, so I'm using Sonic Pi for now. That way, I can also make a little music for my sessions in addition to the visual bells and whistles. It's a pretty interesting experience, having folks watching me... Continue Reading →
