My Saal Digital Photobook Review. Spoiler alert: it's gorgeous
New Year, Who Dis?
|| I'm not going to lie, 2020 was a really hard year for pretty much everyone. I was fortunate enough to have my day job shift to telework, but it still took a huge toll on my creativity. I struggled to write, especially when it came to new writing, as opposed to editing. That being … Continue reading New Year, Who Dis?
Oh, No, Not Again: Occam’s .44
|| Another year down, another Fark Fiction Anthology available for your purchase on Amazon! I was once again honored to be one of the volunteer editors for our annual effort to highlight the Fark Community's writing skills, this year titled Oh, No, Not Again. I'm extremely proud of it, and also happy that … Continue reading Oh, No, Not Again: Occam’s .44
|| I started November with a decent plan for NaNoWriMo that allowed for a 25k personal goal, with the easy addition of an extra 25k as a stretch goal. I wrote a novella a couple years ago that was begging to be at least a trilogy, with each volume needing to be right around 25k … Continue reading 645
2018 NaNoWriMo Start
|| And BAM!, just like that it’s NaNoWriMo time. I’m opting for something a little different this time around though and shan’t be doing a traditional project. Not even a little bit. Instead I’m going to focus on finishing the various short stories that I have languishing around in 70-90%. My ultimate goal will at … Continue reading 2018 NaNoWriMo Start
|| I'm happy to announce that I just finished updating my Published Works page! First off my co-author and all around fantastic human being Mark Gardner coordinating translations of Brass Automaton, so you can now read it in Spanish (El Autómata de Latón), Italian (L'automa d'ottone), AND German (Der Messingmann). How cool is that!? And, … Continue reading Writing Update
Through a Scanner Farkly
|| Well, this is a bit embarrassing, but I totally forgot to let all of you know that one of my stories was published in the 2017 Fark Fiction Anthology, Through a Scanner Farkly. My story is called "Awkward Vitae" and it's about a very British patent attorney who is a bit under-prepared in … Continue reading Through a Scanner Farkly
I usually don’t remember my dreams, but when I do they tend to be fairly bizarre, and usually in Technocolor with Dolby Surround too. Sometimes though the dream feels less like a “dream” and more like an immersive movie or RPG in which I’m following around a character or two. I’ve come to call these … Continue reading The Hospital
Star Wars Thoughts Part II: THE PREQUELS
|| You had one job. One. The Prequels were the first truly, almost wholly blank slate that the Star Wars Universe had had since Return of the Jedi in 1983. The only constraint was that at the end of the Prequel Trilogy, Revenge of the Sith would lead into A New Hope and match the … Continue reading Star Wars Thoughts Part II: THE PREQUELS
I’ll Never Get Over Nacho Grande
|| Sharing a pun laden reply I put on Fark in response to a satirical post that invoked Airplane's Macho Grande as a humorous micro fiction. (And serious kudos if you followed that too!) -- I remember Nacho Grande all too well. Sure the chips were down, and we all knew it too. But Sarge, … Continue reading I’ll Never Get Over Nacho Grande
