  • No November Novel Here

    I started with the best of intentions and a kind of need to prove I could do it again. That I still had it in me. Probably the biggest obstacle I was facing was that I had only the roughest of ideas for a story and not even a sketch of an outline. The road […]

  • And So It Begins

    November is National Novel Writing Month. NaNoWriMo is the shorthand version of that. What it amounts to is an annual Internet-based creative writing challenge wherein participants attempt to write a 50,000-word manuscript between November 1 and November 30. We’re almost 19-hours in and I haven’t started yet. Probably, I should post this on the blog […]

  • Title, Cover, and Some Ideas

    It’s all handshakes and free drinks when you arrive. Everyone is all, “what’s the news” and “tell us where you’ve been.” Everything is great. You’re a herald, a hero, a breath of fresh air. Then you screw the mayor’s daughter or beat the shit out of some oversized farmboy maybe take too much advantage and […]

  • NaNoWriMo Stuff

    This is not stuff that I’ve done. Really. I still have no idea what I’ll be writing. I found this years NaNoWriMo graphics on tumblr of all places. Since I couldn’t find them on the NaNo website, I figured I’d share them here. Because, you know, this is Grand Central Station for all the novelists […]

  • I Need This

    I’m out of school and I’m stuck in a rut. I am doing nothing. I’m not working on my projects around the house. I’m not working on any of my craft projects. I’m not doing much for the website. I’m not writing. I really don’t know what I do between 5 o’clock and 10:30. The […]

  • Getting Back on the Horse

    I used to have a red coffee cup that I liked quite a bit. It was a gift. I don’t know what ever happened to that cup, but I got a bug in my bonnet the other day and bought a new one. I also bought a cup with my shield logo on it, but […]

  • Canvas Prints, Part II

    Both of my canvas prints arrived this week from Inner Sareth arrived on Thursday. It looks good. Colors are nice. Text is sharp. But… due to the way it’s stretched, the border is wavy and not even around the perimeter of the canvas. If I was going to give you advice about doing something […]

  • Two More Maps

    I’ve put in orders for two more canvas maps, because I want to put them up in my office as inspiration for writing and gaming. And also because I get very into new projects and this one seems pretty easy to finish. Just click to order. The first is the map that began as an […]

  • Philosophic Gamble

    I just took my Philosophy exam and I managed 100%. I also managed 100% on both of the tests during the semester. And i did pretty well on the quizzes,  something like 94 out of 99. Which is all very good. And most likely very important. Why? I mean, besides the obvious point of passing […]

  • Journaling about Happiness

    Some of the things that make me happy are . . . Mail. It brings me joy that everyday, except Sunday, there is a little white truck that brings me letters and packages. So that each day, when I come home from work there is a surprise waiting for me in my mailbox. It may […]
