THE LAND OF PUSH AND PULL

  Your perfect soundtrack for thist post. Just loop it. I managed to trap myself yesterday, pretty bad. Not gonna bog you down with the personal details that you’re not really interested in, but last week was no damn good. This week not so much either. Let it all catch up to me, or I […]

Made it to April

  Well, I went this far without blowing a deadline. I’ll get an update this week. Kinda grim all ’round, really. String of rejections, some more polite than others. Really the phrase “perhaps with some time and an editor you might be good enough to write for our-non-pro-level-pay anthology” sets me off in several ways. […]

SCRATCHED AWAY AT THE WALLS FOR YEARS

One day I’ll start feeling like I’m not in a transitional state, right? Maybe that’s the deal. Always changing. Or always moving away from another burning wreck to another as the hull finally slips below the waterline, just in time for the engine room to catch fire. Rinse repeat. Been thinking things over since the […]

Tentatively serial

There’s a visual pun here, but I’ll let you figure it out. Right. This week. Busy one. Getting ready for Emerald City Comic-Con coming up next week, and I’ve got a number of things to get done before that. First off is a story called “Chunked” which just went out to an anthology, though I […]

Yeah, I know

No weekly update yet. Maybe this afternoon. Between rewriting RAGNAROK SUMMER and a new STRANGEWAYS story and the churn of anthology submissions, there hasn’t been time.

ALAMEDA TUBEWAY

  Being the update for March 11, 2015   I never know where to start these. Probably because I’m still struggling with doing these updates for people who may or may not be reading these. I mean, I already know what happened and where I’m wandering to next. Mostly. For instance, I managed to wander […]

Exercise

So, went to a writing exercise session at the convention I attended last week. Here’s what came out of it. Frankly, it’s a miracle there’s anything here. Friday was not a good day for a number of things that aren’t fodder for discussion here. But still I went and worked. Each of these were delivered […]

TAKE ME ON A ROLLER COASTER

Take me on an airplane ride… Last week I did a quick trawl of Duotrope, which is a thing that I do now, and still seems odd to type, but if you’re at my level of professional writing, you know what it is, I’m sure. So I do a trawl, and find that there’s an […]

Late February update

So, this week. Anything that I thought I’d be doing hasn’t really gotten done. I’ve more or less started a new job so writing gets put back on a shelf it hasn’t been for some time, that being the back shelf. Stuff will still be happening, but reality makes demands. And no, I won’t be […]

The week updated Feb 18 2015

Last week was something of a struggle. I’ll chalk it up to a short week for the kids at school and other nagging outside stuff that I have zero control over but has a major degree of control over me and let’s leave it at that Did two things I haven’t done in a long […]
