Puffs of Smoke

Every writer has ideas that look like this. Incorporeal blobs of steam that sorta just ooze out our ears from time to time and drift towards the keys in a sad attempt to become something more coherent. No? Just me? Yeah, probably just me. Last week, I spoke of the inspiration behind my story for [...]

Done! Sort of…

Finally! Part one of this monstrous beast I've been working on for literally TWENTY YEARS is finished! FINISHED!!! Sort of...
