Hey, there, ‘lil guys

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. Lo and behold, after weeks of seeing naught but blooms and the occasional wee sprouts, I found some things growing. […]

Writing really, REALLY is rewriting

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 […]

A sad and yet happy farewell to NaNoWriMo 2013.

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?  Like, when I wrote posts about topics. Yeah, last month truly was the Golden Age for blogging. Take comfort, though! Thing are […]

It. Is. Done. (kinda)

Late last night, I finished the first pass of revisions for Project Macaroni. You know I’m not pulling your leg because there’s a 100% and a full progress bar over there on the sidebar to the right.  And as I’ve said before, progress bars = science, and science doesn’t lie. After wrapping up that last […]

Excuses, excuses, fish, lizard.

I really should post something interesting for you. I mean, I really want to, too. No time, though. Not this weekend, anyway. I’m knee-deep in the home stretch of revising Project Macaroni. Underwater. In over my head. Up a creek. Down and out. Insert directionally-related idiom here. After this bout of revisions, it goes to […]

A picture instead a thousand words

Having wrapped up the initial drafting of Project Macaroni, you might be wondering what’s on my mind now.  Well, of course, there’s the usual stuff: work, family, trying to survive any given weeknight without the supernatural ability to split my consciousness into separate pieces and be in multiple places at once.  Oh, also, the “cooling […]

Project Macaroni Status: Complete. Achievement Unlocked!

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 […]

Making filler posts…like A BOSS!

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”. As […]
