Okay, so I do have a lot of poems. Not all are really good. This one, though, fits the period of time I'm living through. What does it mean? That things are just random. I was going for a rhythm based process, if I remember correctly. So, it isn't in a literary sense sort of … Continue reading A Poem: ‘Randomnity’
I started writing my book Red Star Sheriff roughly two years ago. I'm happy to report that I finished all the major edits to it within the last few weeks (though wordcount seems to be a sticking point on getting it published through a traditional venue--so I still have to evaluate that angle). I've been … Continue reading And It’s Done! …Sort of.
Here is a poem I came up with years ago. I developed it while playing the video game Wild Arms 4. There was a character there named Raquel and, for some reason, the name just stuck with me. I had to wax poetic and this was the result. Is it good? I don't know. I … Continue reading Poem Time!: ‘RAQUEL’
Wooo! I don't know how people manage to do it! I don't know how people manage to have a full time job (such as myself) and are able to keep up with a blog! I mean, I'm working on my book still so that's been keeping me fairly occupied. But to put daily work into … Continue reading Believe it or not, Yes, I’m still here
I'm in the endgame now! Got through two thirds of my narrative, rewritten significant portions of the story, cleaned up plot holes, and strengthened character arcs! I'm enjoying the process and pleased with how the final story is coming along. By the end of August, I think, all will be said and gone. Soon, I … Continue reading How My Book Is Coming
Here is a poem I wrote for my wife years ago. I designed it to look like a rose so that she could both read the words and get a nice pretty picture at the same time! Hopefully this will be easily readable on here and I thank you for taking a nice little peek! … Continue reading Monthly Poem Time: ‘You Are’
So, still working voraciously on finishing my book. The reworking of the third draft is slowing me down as I've found major sections that need rewritten. However, I think it reads far better now and will end up being an enjoyable read. At least I think so. Maybe that's all I'm writing it for: myself. … Continue reading Monthly Update
I only wrote a lot of poems during my days in college when I was taking a literature course in poetry. I wrote a few before and after, but the bulk came out of this time. I just never had the urge to wax poetic. But I suppose I could always try my hand again … Continue reading Poem Time! The Title Is: ‘What Is Life?’
So, one of my least favorite authors is Chuck Wendig. Mostly because how he writes is a slow string of wording that dribbles on for too long and makes for a frustrating read. Let me offer up an example of what I'm talking about from the novel Star Wars: Aftermath. I will write the first … Continue reading That’s What He Said…
This is such an interesting question. I've seen many people ask it of established authors. It seems like a question that potential writers ask to make sure they're not losing their minds because this bug to write has bitten them hard. And it isn't a bad question. However, I think it's potentially loaded. Mostly because … Continue reading When Did You Know You Wanted To Write?
