October 2017 News

The haunting month is upon us, bringing a chill in the air and the spirit. I relish it. My bride does not. And so I am loosed upon my neighborhood with idle hands and a nocuous curiosity. Gods be pleased, I’ll content myself stealing candy and toppling decorations. But if the Moon sees fit to borrow my earthly vessel, I take no responsibility for the grisly appetite that befalls me.
Be warned.

September 2017 News

Ah, September. That fateful month when I, in an explosive crescendo of blood and embryonic detritus, was torn from a slit in my mother’s belly and held aloft in sanguine-slicked hands.
The world has never been the same.

Writing

Been writing some gruesome scenes lately. Can you tell?

August 2017 News

Welcome to August, frans.

Writing

Turesia is up to 137,793 words. What a shite improvement over last month! Pardner and I missed a couple of Story Times. Excuses, excuses, I know. I’m just trying to get it right, rather than fast (Rothfuss’ last words).

July 2017 News

Welcome to Summer, mein peeps. This is my most favoritest season because it’s the farthest in either direction from Winter…
I just realized the nonsense of that statement.

Still my favorite season.

Writing

It’s a lonely journey, writing. When Torvald makes a selfless sacrifice, or Irdessa overpowers her strongest foes against all odds, or Kraus does something disgustingly offensive, I can’t elbow my mate and go, “Would ya look at that?”
I’m tempted to try it, though. I’m tempted to race to public places to post updates on my characters, despite that you don’t know or care who I’m talking about. I’ve already filled up pages of a Compendium with Turesia creatures and characters, despite that they’re all subject to change.
I’m learning to keep it to myself. I’ll probably delete a lot of entries from the Silexare Compendium in the days to come. The porcelain of this story will not be fired in the kiln of completion until the “And everyone still breathing lived happily ever after” is in place. Until then, it’s a raw, scrotum-shaped lump of clay; not to be shown off.

April 2017 News

I love Spring. It’s my favorite. Not too hot. Swimming is just around the corner. You can still hike without worrying about eating spiderwebs. My favorite colors, blue and green, are in their most prominent display.

Also, we’re moving to the lake. Here’s my new backyard. Look at all that hammock potential!

March 2017 News

Ah, March. Spring has come early to Georgia. It’s warm enough to wear shorts and cut grass. Normally I’d not be complaining, but I bet it means summer will be unbearable.

February 2017 News

I’m a day late posting this. Was a bit derailed yesterday. Did a lot of driving, walking, talking, poisoning. You know, that kind of day.

It’s the month after election month. Here’s the part where I’m obligated to talk about politics and declare what team I’m slinging mud and posting memes for.

Pass.

(sadly, this is enough to convince some of you I’m the enemy)

Wouldn’t it be nice if ideas were considered based on their merit, not whether they came from your team or the other?

January 2017 News

Today is the first day 2017. Every year the date sounds more like something from an 80’s era science fiction movie. Let us celebrate an otherwise mundane weekend because of the transition into a new year. Nevermind that “2017” is only a chronological construct that sentient meat n bone sacks use to keep track of their achievements in the particular dot in existence that is our space time reality.

1/1/17 means I’m down to around 1460 days left to get my intellectual property profitable enough to extract myself from the employ of another human being. The going is slow, but like I’ve never said – Slow going is better than no going. I’ll probably never say it again. It’s yours now. You’re welcome.
