Sitting out on our back patio tonight after a quick storm raced through the area (leaving the air outside 10 degrees hotter and roughly 3000% more humid), I just happened to peek at our peppers.

If you’re one of the three people that actually keeps track of the progress bar there to the right of the blog, you’re probably wondering why in the name of the unholy new maths Project Tennyson hasn’t advanced in any way, shape, or identifiable form in, like, months. Literally, I think the last time I … Continue reading Writing really, REALLY is rewriting
Remember back in the “Good Ol’ Days”, the halcyon, glory-tinged days of yestermonth, when I actually managed to post more than just a short poem and a dredging up of old short fiction?

Oh, also, the “cooling … Continue reading A picture instead a thousand words
Huzzah! After two longs months of toiling daily in the word mines, reeking of coffee, weakness, dark chocolate, candy-coating, bourbon, flop sweat, and doom, I have finally, finally finished the first draft of my latest novel, codenamed Project Macaroni. How can you believe me, you ask? Especially as I’m known to make stuff up on … Continue reading Project Macaroni Status: Complete. Achievement Unlocked!
As you may or may not know (depending on how many f#&@s you happen to give about what I do with myself...which I realize is likely closer to 0 than any other number), I'm roughly 15,000 words and 6-8 chapters away from finishing the first draft of the novel bearing the codename "Project Macaroni".
