PB and Done!

I just typed the last word of the first draft of my latest novel in progress, Pittsburgh Blue. She'd done. If you're interested in a raw sneak peak, check out my last post. What this means is two thirds of the first drafts I'm working on are done. One more to go, and it has... Continue Reading →

Subscriptions and Donations

I've recently realized that I'm probably failing to maximize reader access to my books and poetry. To remedy this, I'm adding subscription service tiers that will give some of you exactly what you want. You can now sign up for Poetry, Fiction, or a combination feed. I'll be working over the next few months on... 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 →

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 →

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 →
