For whatever reason, I've gotten it into my head over the course of the past six months or so that Thursday night is cookie night, the best night of the week to dig out the brown sugar and a mixer and whip up a batch of chewy goodness. Or at least it is when you … Continue reading No Cookie Thursday
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!
Making words is hardSometimes, I wonder: Why notjust make beer instead?
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
In my free time this month, the project at hand is the first pass of revisions for Project Tennyson. Which means that every night after our hearthen darling children reluctantly embark on their nightly journey off to Dreamland, I huddle over my keyboard and begin nitpicking my words. Often times, this process boils down to … Continue reading One Way To Buckle Under The Pressure Of Revision
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.

Like, when I wrote posts about topics. Yeah, last month truly was the Golden Age for blogging. Take comfort, though! Thing are … Continue reading A sad and yet happy farewell to NaNoWriMo 2013.
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 … Continue reading It. Is. Done. (kinda)
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 … Continue reading Excuses, excuses, fish, lizard.
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 … Continue reading A picture instead a thousand words
