“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…

Progress Report – 3/9

Word Count: 2153 Tea of the Day: Dr Pepper So again, I skip my morning tea to write. It felt too hot today for tea, at a balmy 27 degrees… Though relatively speaking, that is quite warm to some of the mornings we have had. The snow and ice is finally melting away, though my…

Progress Report – 3/6

Today’s Word Count: 2423 Today’s Tea: Ice cold water – no tea (I planned to make tea. I did twitter instead.) I spent the first hour of my writing time today helping out my friend Mab. You can see more about that issue in my other posts. I figured that I was too fired up…

Facebook Lied! The continuing struggles of Mab Just Mab

WTF? #facebooklied Turn @mabjustmab back on, she is real! #mynameis http://wp.me/p4jBPm-3N Mab just received her fourth rejection of her appeal to turn her account back on. She has provided 4 different types of ids that prove she…

Progress Report and Royally Pissed Off!

Today’s Word Count: 2154 Today’s Tea: Mango Mate (no clue where it came from, it was in a plastic ziplock on the shelf)   I just posted yesterday about writing stuff, so today’s update will be short and sweet. I did not stop at 1500 words today, because I really wanted the chapter to end…

Progress Report – 3/3

Last Friday, (Feb 27th) was my 13th wedding anniversary. It is thanks to my wonderful, talented, and insurance wielding wife that I am able to pursue this unlikely life as an author, artist, and performer. She is my partner, my best friend, and in many ways, my muse. On a completely unrelated note,  during my…
