(goals/writing/personal) Looking towards the future

It’s a new year. I’ve already started to do things a little differently – set up a new theme here on the blog, and added a button at the top of the page so you can follow me on Patreon if you’d like. There will be new stuff on the Patreon coming soon, as I’m …

(writing) I need to write Sapph

Damn, I need to write more ghost stories. Really.   In my spare time.

(writing) On grooves and getting into them.

It’s Sunday, which has become a writing/editing day for me. There is a wonderful bookstore/cafe in my hometown called Gibson’s Bookstore, that has become one of my favorite places around. I even saw John Scalzi speak here! (It was cool. I was sick, so I stayed away from him, but it was VERY cool. Yes, I’m …

(personal/writing/advent) New Year brings new opportunities

  It’s the beginning of a new year, and one I’m hoping is better than last year. No, one I will MAKE better than next year.   I’m recommitting to several things – my goal to get healthy; my writing; and myself. Yes, I’m going to be enforcing my time to get better. I can’t …

(writing/personal) blowing the dust out of the corners

Good thing that it’s only electronic dust, because lord, there is a lot of it! I have been dealing with depression, family illness, and stress, so I haven’t been writing. Or blogging. Or really doing anything, to be honest. And I don’t know that the stress is going away soon, so I’m trying to pick …

(writing/personal/advent) Not dead yet!

I seem to use that a lot as a title.  That’s not a good thing.   But I’m not dead, and I’m still writing.  I’ve finished the first draft of Winter’s Secrets, which is the rewrite of the first Advent blog story.   I’m letting it marinate until April, when I’m going to do my …

(personal/writing/depression) It’s been a long winter.

I know, it’s still a long way until spring, but seriously, I feel like I’m trapped in George RR Martin’s Game of Thrones world.  Between the depression and the SAD and the god-awful snow (seriously, there’s been like 60 inches of snow in the past month!), I feel like I’m smothered in cotton.  So what …

(writing/personal) The first blog post of the new year

  Happy New Year, everyone!  Sorry I disappeared after the end of Advent – the holidays overwhelmed me, and I just couldn’t bring myself to write, never mind blog.  But I hope everyone enjoyed this year’s Advent, and I promise, it’s not the last.   For those who may not know (I know I have …

(pendragon) Book birthday!

  It’s finally here!  Into Thin Air is finally available on Kindle!  And you can get it here! But maybe you’re not sure.  Maybe you don’t know if you’ll be interested in an odd ghost story.  Maybe you’d like to try it out. Sure.  Have Chapter One.  On me: Chapter One Beginnings “But Detective!” The …
