Moving, RPGs and being Published

It’s been quite an exciting few months. My wife and I were kicked out of our rental, and since we are¬†hardworking¬†individuals, we were able to find, finance and move into a house. Yep, we bought a house. It’s been quite rough on writing, with all of the packing, plan making, […]

Award-winning

On Finishing

So close yet so far. Almost finished with “Win Some, Lose Some”. By finished I mean that I’m almost done with the draft I’m working on. It has always been difficult for me to re-write something. I suppose it’s the same with all authors, but I have a particular hatred […]

Self Imposed Deadlines

“Time is an illusion, lunchtime doubly so.” -Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (said by Ford Prefect) I find that the more I delve into writing, and more specifically, writing for the purpose of a website, getting a portfolio ready or for it’s original intent: fun, the more […]

Caution: The Words You Are About to Read may be Unfini

While searching for content to add to this website, I’ve come across some bits of unfinished writing that are both really good and really bad. One of the samples I was going to use was from a short story I started about two years ago. Being recently laid off, it […]
