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 →

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 →

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 →

New Book Out Today!

In late 2016, depression hit me hard. Everything about my life made me feel stuck. I hadn't made any sort of art in two years. It had been at least three years since my last show. The changing of the seasons, on top of everything else, had me really far down. One day that fall,... Continue Reading →

Poems for the Weekend

Here's what I got done on my lunch break today. I'm really happy with how these kinds of poems are turning out, even though it's been years since I've written a lot of this style. Enjoy! punch   the one who stores your soul inside his ring punched the ring into a wall the bone... Continue Reading →

Writing a Dream

Here's another dream scene from the novel I'm working on. Again, this is first draft stuff and will probably change a lot by the time the novel it out, but I thought it was cool enough to share now. It's loosely based on a dream I had about my grandfather just after he died. Anyway,... Continue Reading →
