Some time last month, I realized that over the past two or three years, I had become a compulsive Did Not Finisher: a loathsome, dreaded heathen who frequently begins reading books but soon loses interest, forgets the book entirely, and moves on to playing Words With Friends instead. Become a DNFer, something the Puddin’ of … Continue reading Why I’ve (Mostly) Stopped Reading E-Books
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!
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 … Continue reading Five Things For The Monday After
Soooooo, I know I’m way past due sharing some errant thoughts and/or possibly insightful comedic ramblings with you all, but I’m still plowing along on Project Hermey, and hoping to finish up the first draft soon so I can call the thing Done! Not that it’ll be anywhere near really, actually, ready-to-show-someone-I’m-not-married-to done at that … Continue reading The Rise and Fall of Autumnal Equinox
Sometimes I get the feeling deep down in the hard, crystally, freezer-burnt depths of my stinky soul that I’m not being as prolific a blogger as I’d like to be these days. Because the fact of the matter is… HEY! WAIT! Come back! Look, I know you’re about a millisecond away from closing this browser … Continue reading Puddin’s Got A Brand New Gig
[Puddin’s Note: Remember when I wouldn’t shut up about FREE AGENT, a book by friend and author J.C. Nelson that I couldn’t put down? Well, I enjoyed the thing so much, I jumped at the chance to have him throw a guest post together for us. So rather than subject you to my my usual … Continue reading The Most Annoying Fairytale Creatures, A Guest Post By Author J. C. Nelson
When I decided, lo, the many years ago, that I was going to quit pretending to be writer and actually put some effort into, you know, writing, I had many, many expectations. I expected I’d put a lot of silly words down. I expected I’d have to keep at it until I didn’t suck anymore. … Continue reading My Friend Has A Book Out In The World: FREE AGENT by JC Nelson Is Out Today!
A few days ago, I was tagged in a one of those chain-style Facebook memes where someone is chosen to do something very specific and then post evidence of it a status update, at which point they’re free to tag some non-zero number of other friends, family, and/or in-laws to carry on the cycle. In … Continue reading Games Writers Play: Seven Lines from Page Seven
Okay, so it’s “My First Book” only in the sense that it’s a book of my words and pictures I bound together with staples at 3:00 AM one night twenty-plus years ago. Nope, I’m afraid this isn’t news about having one of my novels published, but instead a trip down memory lane, where I revisit … Continue reading My First Book: The Road To Reformation
We…we need to talk. I don’t know how to say this. Maybe you should sit down. In fact, you might need a stiff drink. You see, I’ve…I’ve been keeping something from you. A secret. For months now. I know, I know, I had no right. It probably turns your stomach just to think about it. … Continue reading You Can’t Live On Bread Alone But It Makes For A Pretty Sweet Hobby
