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 →

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 →

Alright, folks. Only two days until my collection, "That Which Gets in the Way" is out! Here's a handful of poems from it. I really hope you enjoy these and the rest of my book.

It's loosely based on a dream I had about my grandfather just after he died. Anyway,... Continue Reading →

New Poems

The time in between books seems so long at first, but it goes by quickly. Here are some poems I wrote this week. They're not the same style as what will be in my next collection, but I think it will be cool to read these now, and then again after finishing the journey that... Continue Reading →

When Titans Pass

I've been writing poetry for something like 20 years now.  I started writing as a young boy in Hawaii and continued as I traveled the U.S. with my parents as my father hopped from job to job. It helped me express the loneliness and what comes with moving around a lot. These days, though, I... Continue Reading →

Poems from the Stream Two

I wrote more in one hour this time than I did in the entire stream last session! I had to cut it early, but I think I got some alright stuff. I was in a weird mood, so some of this is kind of playful. Posting this kind of unpolished work is a bit more... Continue Reading →

Poems from the Stream

So, live streaming my poetry writing session on YouTube went well. It was pretty much exactly what I wanted: A few folks popping in to listen/read, and a good amount of interaction. I think it was mostly three watchers at any given time, so for a first time, I think that's a success. I got... Continue Reading →
