Self-Evaluation is for Losers

      Comments Off on Self-Evaluation is for Losers

I Am A C-Plus I should probably have to turn in my blogging card. Hang my head in despair, and perform a solitary walk of shame away from the brotherhood of bloggers. Exiled. Ostracized. Why? Because I didn’t write a “New Year’s Resolution” post in early January. I thought about it. Even penciled out a rough sketch. But it felt… Read more »

Be the Magic

      1 Comment on Be the Magic

See the World the Way It Is There’s no shortage of magic in the world…if only we take the time to see it. As adults we just grow out of it. I don’t know about you, but starting around American Thanksgiving, I begin to gorge myself on Christmas movies (if there are better examples than “Christmas Vacation” and “Elf”, I… Read more »

NaNoWriMo Update #3

      Comments Off on NaNoWriMo Update #3

Is that a novel in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me? It’s Day 4 of my post-NaNoWriMo existence. I am squarely in what others refer to as the “Post NaNo Blues”. It’s a real thing…I saw it on the internet. You can google it. I entered into the “competition” without any real plan, and if I’m… Read more »

The Light at the End of the Tunnel Eyes sore. Fingers calloused. Back in spasms. Occupational hazards of the aspiring writer as he pecks away at his trusty old laptop. I have never spent quite so much time sitting at my computer. Well, that’s not entirely true. I have wasted hours – nay, days! – watching stupid videos and checking… Read more »

Well, here we are. Eight days into my own personal Everest – attempting to write a novel in 30 days. It’s been an adventure so far, and I’ve learned a few things about myself and my process along the way. So, where do we stand? Total Words Written to Date – 10724 as of 11:28am on November 8. Yay me!… Read more »

The Extraordinary Paradox

      Comments Off on The Extraordinary Paradox

I need to tell you something. Something that’s been bugging me for a while. I think you know what it is. You are extraordinary. But…why are you so afraid to show it? Why are you hiding behind everyone else when you – yes, you – were designed to be one-of-a-kind and sparkling? It pisses me off. There is nothing ordinary about… Read more »

Nicheless

I’ve been having some difficulty lately trying to get more writing done. The desire is there. I have ideas. Things I want to say. If anything, the problem, if I can call it that, is too many ideas. There are currently about six drafts waiting to be finished on my post page. New ideas pop up constantly. But, every time… Read more »

The Most Obvious Answer in the World

      Comments Off on The Most Obvious Answer in the World

As any parent will tell you (perhaps reluctantly), having kids does in fact teach you a few things. Some good. Some not-so-good. You find out things about yourself you never would have guessed, believed, or wanted to know. My son is constantly showing me new ways to look at the world, my relationships, and how everything connects and fits together…. Read more »
