This and That and More

I meant to write this yesterday and time got away from me. After more than a month when my productivity has been seriously impacted, if not stopped, it exploded over the last four days or so. It feels good, but it also means a lot of things I'd planned on doing took a backseat. So... Continue Reading →

And Again, with More Feeling

From a writer's perspective, I'm trying to watch the world unfold around me with the prerequisite distance to learn from it, rather than be caught up in the emotions of the moment. We are too close for objectivity, and will be for some time. Besides which, we need logic, not emotion, at the moment. It's... Continue Reading →

Setting Priorities

No, I'm not talking about the dreaded New Year's resolutions. I'm not too ashamed to admit I suck at them. What I am talking about it setting priorities to help me reach my writing goals for the year. This means not only putting butt in chair but finding better technology to help and figuring out...

I’m back. Sort of

The title says it all. After several weeks of enforced absence from the keyboard, I've been released to very limited work. Because of that, I'm trying something new this morning.

But that means it is time to look at the results of the experiment I've been doing the last quarter-plus and come to a verdict. Of course, this isn't a scientific experiment and there is no real "control" beyond knowing what... Continue Reading →

I Wanna Escape

Let's face it. The last few weeks and months have been trying for all of us here in the US. Covid, the election, the post-election, the post-post election. It is all enough to make this writer want to scream and find a nice, secluded island for a bit. Of course, if that island also has... Continue Reading →


The title says it all. Oops!  Somehow, I forgot it's Tuesday. Gee, I wonder why. Now I need to run out of the house to take care of some errands. So, because I am late, here's a repost from my blog yesterday. Backlogs and Priorities I don’t know about the other writers out there, but... Continue Reading →

The Light At The End Of The Tunnel

The title says it all. It's a feeling, along with pre-publication fears and hopes, every writer is familaiar with. Now combine that with post-publication WTF?!? and you know exactly where I'm at right now. I'm not sure I've ever set and actually kept to as aggressive a publishing schedule as I'm on right now. So... Continue Reading →
