Welcome to the New Site!

few months ago, I promised a redesigned site. Here it is! At least, stage one of the redesign. I still have a lot more I want to add to this site, but most of that has to wait for the time being. The biggest thing I still want to add is ecommerce. I want to be able to sell copies of …

I Still Believe…

Around me, among those who, like me, have no children, I have seen a distinct lack of Christmas cheer. It seems most have forgotten what Christmas used to mean to them, thinking of it as a child’s holiday. However, I still wake up early on Christmas morning like I used to as a child. As an adult, I may not …

Laziness

I saw someone I very much respect say, the other day, that all humans are lazy. I, honestly, don’t think anybody is born lazy. Brain-chemistry issues like depression and ADHD aside, I think most people just keep trying to force themselves into doing work they don’t enjoy, and their minds resist. My dad was lucky enough to find work he …

Where Were You?

When I was young, I would hear adults talking about how they would always remember where they were when certain things happened. For some, it might be the moon landing, for others it might be JFK’s assassination. I never really understood that concept, however, until 9/11. Oh, I had lived through some momentous or tragic events, like the Challenger disaster, …

I’m Back — For Now

I know it’s been months since I’ve written anything. There’s a reason for that, but it’s not really good excuse. With the lower quality headset that came with Dragon NaturallySpeaking, I had serious problems adapting to using dictation to write. After nearly three decades of typing, getting used to the slow pace and errors that Dragon gave me frustrated me …

Indie Authors for Ben Wolverton

For those that haven’t heard, author Dave Wolverton’s son Ben was severely injured in a longboarding accident a little over a month ago.  A number of indie-authors have decided to donate all sales from the month of May to help with his expenses. I haven’t yet gotten many sales at all, but I’ve decided to join in on this. I …

Million Dollar Outlines

Just finished David Farland‘s book ‘Million Dollar Outlines‘. I learned so much, I feel a little overwhelmed. I’ll likely have to go back and reread sections. (Some areas confuse me, for example at one point it seems he’s saying to start a story with a detailed setting, and then in the very next section said never to start with a setting. …

Desperate Upload Reviewed

Desperate Upload has received its first review on Amazon.com! I know, not the news I’m supposed to be’s posting about in the weekly update. I just had to share, however. As for my writing progress this week, I only hit a little under 250 words. I don’t have an exact count, as I was also deleting stuff as I edited …
