Of Apples And Dinosaur Ambition

I’m this close (*presses finger and thumb together*) to finishing this pass of revisions on Project Hermey and shipping it off to interested beta readers who have been ridiculously patient with all the extra time it’s taken me. Huzzah! for that! But, it means I’ve got very little time to post today. I had leaving you […]

A Haiku For Well-Salted Winter Roads

A white, snowy world Roads of gray and slush Washer fluid would be nice

Snowy Days And Shovels

Mother Nature must have heard me when I vowed I wasn’t going to spend all winter complaining about, well, winter. Because it sure seems like she’s given some of us a bit of respite this season all the way around. Sure, we’ve had a cold spell or two, but for the most part we haven’t […]

A Movie In 100, Err, 200 Words Or Less: John Wick

I don’t remember exactly when it was last week when I watched John Wick. It might have been Wednesday night, possibly Thursday, or maybe even during those sacred few hours after Friday ends and before Saturday truly begins, when a middle aged guy can enjoy a pint or two of IPA in a dark room […]

A Limerick For The Revision Quicksand In Chapter 30

The latest of my books is called Hermey. While revising, I’m mired in Chapter 30. With great fury, I’m rewriting, But the words, they are fighting! If I don’t fix 30 soon, I’ll go loony!

The Saturday Afternoon View From My Porch

So here’s what I’m looking at right now. At nearly 50 degrees this afternoon, I thought it seemed like the perfect opportunity to spend a little time on my back porch, revising Project Hermey under an unseasonably crystal blue February sky. The Attitude agreed, at least about it being ridonkulously nice for the second month […]

Because I Don’t Have Time For No Flu

We’ve been barely skating along at la Casa de Puddin this week.  To the horror of all of us, the Puddinette was beset by some rotten form of the dastardly influenza on Monday, and has been clinging to her last remaining shreds of humanity from our bedroom since. As you can imagine, leaving me in […]

A Haiku For The Baffling Devotion To Girl Scout Cookies

Each year Girl Scouts rule. O’er a Thin Mint reign I’ll take nice chocolate chips, thanks

Five Things For The Monday After

I would be remiss in not mentioning that the After in question above is clearly a reference to yesterday’s Super Bowl, which is arguably the single biggest TV-watching holiday on the American calendar.  Honestly, I think someone should probably just have the NFL file as a religious organization so we can recognize Super Bowl Sunday […]

Five Years Later, What Am I Even Doing Anymore? Well, Besides Cookies

Yes, contrary to what you’re probably thinking, I am aware of the elephant in the room. In fact, I’d say this tweet of mine from yesterday fairly well points out that elephant, paints it pink, calls it smelly, and nicknames it “Priscilla”: Someone should put a stop to the tumbleweeds rolling across my blog. Anyone? […]
