Mermaids! – A Gandersnitch Rant

Hello sheeple! Today I thought, for my biweekly blog post, I could talk about something important. Like politics, or global warming, or men in dresses… you know, that sort of earth shattering stuff that nobody except rabid shut ins actually seems to give a damn about on the internet. But NOOOOOOOOOO! Instead, I get tagged…

The Goblin Guy’s Marvelous Menagerie – 7/8/15

In addition to posting fiction every other Monday, I have decided to set a schedule and post to this blog three times a week. Mondays will be the a fore mentioned fiction (alternating with Gandersnitch Rants) and Friday’s will be an insight to how I work (or don’t work as the case may sometimes be.)…

Episode 1: Rags – The Roanoke Sessions

My dad wrote a book. Big deal. As a list of achievements go, that is pretty small potatoes. Anybody can write a book. Just like anybody can father a child. It doesn’t mean they should. I mean heck, I could write a book. I could, but I’m not going to. Though if I did, I…

Fiction, Free for the Funky

In an attempt to carve out some creative work time each week, and to keep the momentum rolling while I deal with the less-creative side of my job, I have decided to try a bit of an experiment.   I have found, that perhaps the hardest part of being a self employed and self published…

“World’s Best Dad!” – Not me…

Today is arguably one of my least favorite reoccurring days of the year. Maybe tax day comes close, or the day I have my yearly physical (though seeing as how that is a practice I just started last year, I don’t even know if we can count that as reoccurring yet), but really Father’s Day…

Recap – Lexington Comic Con

This past weekend I was at the Lexington Comic Con to promote my first book, The Completely Inappropriate Tales of Gandersnitch the Goblin (available right now on amazon.com) I will confess that I became increasingly stressed out in the days leading up to the event, as the products I have been selling at conventions and…

Progress Report 3/13

Word Count: 1855 This morning I got up at 7am, because my phone was beeping that the battery was low. Somehow it had not charged at all through the night. I had planned to sleep in later, but decided to go ahead, get up, and head to the convention hall to load in. I was…

Progress Report – 3/11

Word Count: 2062 Tea: Dryad Tea’s Firebird Chai – it is awesome, and one of my most favorite teas. I will confess, that I almost gave up on today’s writing session, only 400 words in. It was a struggle to keep going. My body and mind feel like they are stuck in a fog and…

Use Your Words!

As a writer, I am rather fond of words. They are the basic building blocks of my art, as much so as a potter depends on clay, or a musician needs those notes. I enjoy word play, and obscure definitions, and even on occasion, crossword puzzles. I am not a grammar Nazi, or a spelling…
