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...

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 →

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 →

It’s Been a While

Hey, folks. I've been quiet for a long time, but I'm back. It's been a long, dry winter here in Albuquerque. It's finally starting to warm up and it's time for me to post another update on stuff. 2018! We made it! First things first, I got the first edit of my novel back from... Continue Reading →

NaNoWriMo Starts!

It's been a while since I've posted. I've been busy trying to get my first novel done before November so I can participate in NaNoWriMo. Yesterday, I completed the first draft of my first novel just in time. Now, I'm working on my second novel. It's basically a story about a man who lives next... Continue Reading →

The Invisible Flame

I'm standing at an alter in a dank, shadow filled church. The alter is off to the side, in an especially tucked away corner. There are a few candles sitting on the dusty white cloth draped across it. Only about half of the candles are lit and it seems like they're going out one by... Continue Reading →
