Greetings and Salutations!

Welcome to the longest-running* yet least-read** blog on the internet! Here you'll find me writing about all the things that I write about, which strikes me, just now, as somewhat recursive. In any case, enjoy :)

* not true
** probably true

To write, to have written



"But even if I'm completely misunderstood, so what?  Being true to the meaning, cognizant of the endeavor, is what matters." -Ana Scott Graham

Sometimes lately I need reminding of that. My task is not to get rich writing, or to write for the greatest number of people. My task is to write the best stuff I can. I need to be cognizant of the endeavor.

Whether the reader understands, really doesn't understand (unable? unwilling?), or misunderstands is not under my control.

Yes, I've been obsessing over reviews and sales. Yes, I need to get back to work. These pesky little misunderstood stories don't write themselves.

Insomnia comes in many flavors

...and I call this flavor 'I ain't no farmer and didn't hear any rooster crow, but here I am up before the sun'.

It's a working title.

Anyway, just to update you on the happenings:


  • I busted the second-last toe of my left foot and have been hobbling around for a week. The bruise has spread halfway up my foot, all mauve and sickly green. Pictures not forthcoming.
  • Had yet another idea for a novel. Think Pearl S. Buck's Dragon Seed meets Glen Cook's Black Company series. Two great tastes that taste great together. In my head, at least.
  • But that will have to wait because, as you may have noticed, I put a new banner up on this here blog. I have too many works in progress, and they've been progressing far too slowly for far too long. So I've given myself a public deadline for the three I want to complete first.
  • Which means I'm going to have to produce outlines. Shudder.
  • It's Father's Day tomorrow. If you know a father, why not tell him thanks for doing his fatherly stuff? Also a hug would not go amiss.

Playing around with paint.net


This one's nearly finished, so I've been playing around with cover ideas.I do wish I could afford more professional covers, but I know mine aren't awful. I've seen awful. Mine are just 'meh'.
