Father’s day was just last weekend. For it, one of the things I got was the book “Your First 1000 Copies,” by Tim Grahl. It is a book that I specifically requested given my writing and the eventuality that I do really want to make my writing my career. Now, it’s a great book. But … Continue reading An Email of Epic Proportions!
I wrote a post about novellas a while ago. I like novellas. There’s a nice balance in that format between being faster to read but still retaining a good amount of content. It’s partly why I chose to write my sci-fi series Gravity in that format. Then came book 4. I am still writing. And … Continue reading A Gravitational Dilemma
It can be seen as a standard interview question: who do you picture when you think about what success looks like? For me, one of the people that pop into my mind first is Hugh Howey. For those who haven’t already googled Hugh, here’s a quick byte on who he is: Hugh is the bestselling … Continue reading Curse You, Hugh Howey!
I didn’t fall off the horse, per-say. In a manner of speaking, I willingly got off (that horse being writing and posting) when I saw that my life was getting too stressful to attempt to manage my hobby as well. For the last two weeks I have had a busy life. Not unmanageable, just busy … Continue reading Know Thyself

That seems too good to be true, but hey, why not try? There are more reasons other than energy that I chose … Continue reading More Energy?
I love coffee. I mean I genuinely love the flavor of it. Tea as well. (Black, nothing added for both.) Were I able to, I would drink it at all hours of the day. The problem? Too much caffeine. This morning I woke up at 4am to get ready for the gym and then my … Continue reading Can I Cut the Caffeine?
It seems too daunting to even approach. This modern cynicism that appeared to culminate with the election of Donald Trump continues to grow in this country. This “us vs them” mentality. You are with us or you are against us. What the hell does that even mean? It doesn’t matter which side of the political … Continue reading Us vs Them
I just posted a new short story I wrote some time ago called “From A Thread.” Read it for free on this site. CLICK HERE!
In short: Fuck no! Now that I have the vulgarity out of the way, it is time to take that question and examine it. A person involved in any creative craft will often ask themselves that very question, just taking the “writer” and replacing it with said craft. For example, the question could be “Am … Continue reading Am I a Good Writer?
News will trick you. It does to me. A lot. Particularly in the world of published works, success stories, and the like. It tricks me because I almost want to be tricked. Those “overnight” successes, I want them to be true, because I want to be one of them. (Yes, even despite my prior post … Continue reading Learning the Slow Game
