Pitching Tents

Nothing to say, but I did put a tent together yesterday, so that means that the title is more than just innuendo. Have a good one.

Bitching

For a long time now, I've really not fully understood why I have disliked many of the jobs I've held over the years. Most jobs, once I've been around for at least 6 months, get to the point where I'm not actually doing anything new, but I am technically improving processes.  That's what I do, …

Art vs. Money

Last night I had the privilege of hanging out over a couple of beers with an old friend I hadn't seen in quite some time.  It was a very enjoyable evening of conversations about TV and movies and getting older and whatever other crap people talk about over beer. However, it was our discussion about …

Still Busy

So, although I'll admit that a large portion of my current state of busy-ness is due to an extra helping of slacking off lately, I still have found myself in a situation where time does not permit long-winded ramblings about whatever's on my mind at the moment. That means that once again I'm keeping things …

Estimations

I had long believed that I would never be one to underestimate children.  As a bright child, I generally felt that people didn't realize what all I was capable of.  As such, I feel that, to some degree, I never quite reached the heights I could have reached if that was understood. As I began …

Big Buts

I'm too far backlogged to even write anything here today.  Yet, I felt like I should take the time to at least say that. . . so. . . .HI! Bye.

Needed: NAP

So, I spent the last 3 days in the Twin Cities.  My wife had some business there, and since my son has yet to learn the wonders of being night-weaned, I decided to tag along so I didn't have to fight him throughout the night. However, that meant I was left alone with two young …

I Heart Humidity

I have to admit that although I really wish we had air conditioning in our house, as the night time gets a tad sweaty (and generally not in the good way, due to teething infant), I really love a hot and humid day.  Perhaps it's the nostalgia of my summers at home in South Carolina, …

Revisions

I am currently going through the process of re-reading The Legend of Buddy Hero for the purposes of seeing where the book fails.  It's been an incredibly enlightening process so far.  Due to hearing my book being read aloud late last year, I became aware of weaknesses in the storytelling and had long intended to …

The New Renaissance

As has been quite apparent on here lately, I've been struggling with the rejections of being a writer.  The idea that I could spend the rest of my life attempting to get people to care about my work only to have them reject me just at the basic concepts of my writing has been discouraging, …
