It’s the Final Countdown!!

Fuck me.  A deadline looms – omnipresent and depressing.  There is nothing quite like the act of completing a work in progress (hereby referred to as WIP).  Satiating, fulfilling, pretty much damn near orgasmic.  Then again, there is nothing else simultaneous to that fan-fucking-tastic sensation of completing the WIP like the soul-crushing oblivion that is […]

Writing vs Talking

Me likey talky-talky. 🙂 There’s a common misconception that writers, since we’re so verbose and even know what words like ‘verbose’ are (and if you’re reading this blog and don’t know what verbose means, maybe you shouldn’t be following this particular blog, eh? Or buy a dictionary and actually use it – ha.), that we […]

The Single Most Way Writers Sabotage Themselves

What do writers do? We write; we sculpt and mold words into breathtaking displays of art that will, hopefully, endear themselves to hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people around the world. How do writers do this? We touch fingertips to keypads, or scratch and mar clean, white sheets of paper with ink or […]

Give A Fracas, Short Story Anthology

Not for the faint of heart. Glorious Bastards Press has released Fracas: A Collection of Short Friction, an anthology of transgressive fiction, that includes one of my short stories, Killing Innocence.  **I’m so excited, I could just…spit!** Dafuq is Transgressive Fiction? Transgressive fiction is everything publishers display prominently on their websites that they won’t accept […]

“Howdy” Lingo – Neighborly Talkin’ in Non-Fiction

As a writer, I take pleasure in seeing other writers find the proper ‘Voice’ (and I’m not talking about the television show with four judges, people) for their articles or stories.  In fact, finding a story’s ‘Voice’ is a very large part of having a reader relate to what a writer is putting out there.  […]

Re-emergence…The Writing Cocoon

All right, so I’m back from my little get-away.  And I’ve decided that one of the first things I’m going to do is drink party talk to you.  Now, don’t you feel special?  I had quite a bit of time to think during my unplug from the cyber-reality that has taken up more than its […]

Vacation

Just in case everyone (anyone? O.o) hasn’t noticed, I’ve decided to take one of my “breaks” from blogging.  This can often last a short duration or a ridiculously long one but, since I promised not too long ago in a blog post to not just up and vanish for months on end without so much […]

The Muse Is A Greedy Bitch

Now don’t misconstrue me here. I love hate love hate love my Muse!  But she is one monumentally greedy bitch.  And I’m sure that all writers, artists, and musicians who live and practically die by her whims and wishes would agree with me on this statement. Many people who know me personally are aware that, […]

The Book Thief

No, I’m not talking about the recent and popular novel by the same name. (Admittedly, I haven’t even read it yet but am told it is excellent.) I’m talking about the “Idea That Got Away” – presumably into somebody else’s head.Say what, B.C.?Just the other day I was watching an episode of ‘Supernatural’ (love those […]
