Hiatus

So, I realize that this isn't really all that much of a shock to anyone who visits this blog often, but I have decided to go on an official hiatus.  I've been so busy with life lately and barely having time to work on my creative pursuits that I really don't think it is an …

Tuesdays Lost

So, I had thought Monday was busy. . . and then Tuesday came along and full-on kicked my ass.  Granted, we did have a birthday party to get ready for, which didn't help anything.  But, at work, I spent almost all day explaining two different issues to two people . . . simple issues that …

Monday

I've never really had an issue with Mondays.  Sure, the harsh reality of the actual week can be a tad painful coming off the weekend, but I've always kept myself fairly busy on the weekends, so, Monday offers a bit of regularity, a return to the routine that I know so well. But Mondays have …

Essence of Time

Time is such an odd thing.  Although constant (within a reference point) it seems to have a liquid quality to it.  When in the midst of doing something pleasurable, time seems to go by too fast, the opposite is seen to be true by those who are doing something they would rather not be doing. …

Big Decisions

Just a quick one today, as I'm pretty busy.  Finished the read-thru of Buddy Hero and reached a dangerous crossroad.  I suddenly realized that it may make more sense for two of my main characters to swap lives.  They would basically be the same characters, but their roles in the story would be swapped. The …

Rewrites of Awesometown

So, I still haven't actually officially began the rewrite process on Buddy Hero yet, just in the midst of reading the last few pages (had to take an unrelated break and figured I might as well spend a little time on here before heading back into the workload), but I now feel confident in saying …

HOT

It has officially become too hot to be a house with incredibly limited cooling options available. . . especially considering I work from home. I have spent the past few days dripping with sweat as I attempt to complete all that's necessary of me.  It's pretty gross. In other news, I finally got my mojo …

DIS-Assembled

Heh. . . you see what I did there, DIS, assembled.  Because Disney owns the avengers now, right? Okay, fine, I thought it was mildly clever. Anyways, finally, after weeks of being told I absolutely MUST see The Avengers, I made my way out to the theater this weekend.  My lovely wife was totally cool …

Me and Marvin

I have a hard time choosing favorites in anything, books, movies, music, whatever.  However, if I were put to the gun, I'd have to say that the original Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is probably my favorite book of all time.  There's just something in the way that Douglas Adams writes, his playful, but commanding, …
