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 […]

What’s Next?

So, I’ve published a book (HOORAY!). Now what? I could twiddle my thumbs a little. Work on a few of my other three hundred different hobbies, or find a nice semi-gloss paint for my office cuz this puke yellow that it currently is does nothing for my creativity. I could also Netflix and chill for a […]

April CampNaNoWrimo 2018

April approaches. Can y’all even believe it?? I can’t! As cHaOs continues to revolve in massive poop storms around my real life existence, my author/publisher life… erm… also revolves around a few massive poop storms. Looks like they’re finally meshing together! Growth. However, in all seriousness, the final steps for the release of Hellfire are underway. […]

Spring?

Then, as if nothing at all had occurred, back up into the 50’s and low 60’s on Sunday. We’ve since been enjoying the lingering […]

Chocolate!!

Oh yeah, that needs to be a big picture. I mean, who doesn’t love chocolate?? A lot of people, actually; weirdos. No, not really. They’re not weird. While I have a fondness for chocolate, I am not one of those ‘eat all the chocolate all the time’ folks. A piece or two here or there is […]

Summer Time!

It’s here!! Parents and children rejoice! No more early mornings! No more hollering ‘where’s your backpack?!’ at 7am! No more shoving them out the door only to remember you forgot to medicate them (oops, total #momfail on my part; and, yes, I medicate one of my children – it makes him not a total and […]

Bullet Journal (the New Mind Map)

Is it really the new mind map? Well, it is for me which is what matters the most at this particular venture in time.  So, let us answer a different question first: What is a bullet journal? As I understand it, and as I have been doing it, a bullet journal is like this mishmash […]
