Non-Florida natives, if you visit here, you will run into two critters. The first ones are fun. We call them geckos, but that might not be accurate terminology. They are lizards, most about the size of your finger, that climb up walls, hang out by lights, and will try to sneak into your house if they get the chance. Continue reading
As insane as it may sound, I have been trying to keep tabs on all of what I do in my head. Every schedule, every little task, every long-term plan—I have little written down.
It’s all in my mind.
That has not been going too well… Continue reading
So, I have written hundreds of blog posts now, on so many topics. I have covered personal things, and funny things, and political things—sometimes it’s been a little random, honestly.
But today, as I type this out, I am not sure what I want to talk about in this post. I’m sure I could write about a bunch of things. I’ve been rather busy; no shortage of updates regarding my life. Continue reading
Hey everyone, sorry about how the articles have been lately. I’ve been posting a lot of poems and not a lot of big stuff—and I feel bad about that.
But the reason is really cool, so bear with me as I make my excuses.
I’ve been busy doing my author stuff. I’ve been learning to advertise and market—and seeing some profit from it. Continue reading
Okay, so I’ve spent the last maybe month or two working on advertising my books.
Paid advertising, mind you. Continue reading
Noise level notwithstanding, I’ve learned to love the feel of a good mechanical keyboard. I was, until recently, one for laptops as my main way of writing—as my main way of working, actually. But a recent upgrade has made me see the appeal.Continue reading
I’ve done many things that didn’t seem to be relevant at the time, or later felt obsolete in the face of new circumstances. But, in a positive spin of an article, I have something simple to say regarding this.
The actions we do towards a goal are not a loss. There is no way to know what skills we develop and acquire will allow us to make something grand in the future. Continue reading
For those that have not been reading my blog long enough to know, I used to be rather overweight. One of my most read articles ever was me talking about my life while being overweight and how I felt after losing a lot of pounds.
But what I never talked about was something odd that’s been a big part of my life for the longest time. I’m sure it had something to do with my weight being so unhealthy as a child, but, even in a healthier place now, it’s not stopped.
And that’s my absurd hunger. Continue reading
As the long haul settles in for this whole stuck-at-home thing, I’m sure some of you are feeling rather bored, frustrated, or stir crazy.
That’s understandable, and not abnormal. Humans are not meant to be stuck inside this much. However, as a person who willingly stays inside and doesn’t do much that doesn’t involve computers, this whole thing hasn’t been that strange for me.
And, as a person who’s not usually bored, I wanted to offer some advice for anyone that finds themselves growing unable to do much more than eat and sleep and maybe play video games. Continue reading
I’m probably right to assume that a good chunk of the people who read my posts are artists, yeah? I think that’s a fair assumption of things.
I hope so, anyway, because I’m addressing you right now. I’m talking to the painters, the writers, the poets, the singers, the animators, and everyone else who makes things for the sake of aesthetics.
Give me your attention for a second. Continue reading
If you’re tired of reading about the virus, then don’t read this article. I won’t be offended. Trust me, I’m absolutely fucking sick of hearing about it, too, and really don’t want to contribute to an air of panic. Continue reading
The older I get, the more it seems like the world runs on mostly logistics. The interplay of information, timing, and operational orders. Things happen at certain times, in certain ways, and if that remains true, then things work out according to plan.
And, the older I get, the more I end up dealing almost exclusively in thinking through and planning with logistics. Continue reading
Okay, honest here, I’ve written a lot. Over 20 books. Depending on how you count novellas, it’s a lot more than that. For more than 2 years, closer to 3, I wrote around 1500 words a day. That’s over a million words. Continue reading
I published another book!
I’m now the author of two books!
I’m excited to have another one of my stories out for the world to see. I’ve been editing it off and on for like a year now and finally got the push to finish it. I originally wrote it as a horror novel that a kid could read and enjoy, but it ended up growing into something a lot more disturbing, so now it’s maybe PG13.
If you’re interested, the entire first chapter is below along with a link to the Amazon page. I don’t usually ask this, but, if you could share it around or post it to your social media, I’d really appreciate it. Continue reading
Welcome to my worlds!
