A Tale of Two Books, or, Catching Up Without Catching Fire

Hey there. I know, it’s been a while. I have no real excuse, and so won’t offer one. I mean, I could blame a lack of time, but that seems overused. Or, I could claim illness, but that would be a flat lie. I’ve been incredibly blessed in the health department and I’m not about […]


It’s such a huge topic that I’m not sure where to start. Should I talk about the similarities and the (thank the divine) differences between COVID-19 and the Influenza epidemic of 1918? Should I discuss the way the massive amount of coverage is making me feel inundated by information rather than helped by it as […]

On Writing Partners

Pyewacket thinks she’s my writing partner. She might be right. She certainly helps with the all-important procrastination segment of my writing process. No writing day would be complete with our obligatory morning conversation. It goes something like this: Me (standing in the door of my office): Are you coming in? Her: …. (pointedly looks out […]

January In Review

As I may have mentioned, I have goals for this year. Mostly they involve some aspect of reading/writing all the words and selling all the books. To that end, I made a few more specific goals and I thought I’d give you an update on my progress so far. Reading: My reading goals for 2020 […]

Nature and its bounty of story fodder…

I went camping with my family recently and decided to take a solitary walk to work out some thoughts that were knocking around in my head. Not story ideas—I have those in spades—but life stuff. Things that can only be clarified by an early morning commune with nature. For the previous two days the wind […]

The Reading Challenge, 2020

I must admit, I’ve been intrigued. But I have issues, not the least of which is that I hate being told what to […]

The End & The Beginning

Well, here we are again. December 2019 flowing into January 2020 like water from a cracked cup. Or perhaps like a rain-swollen river overwhelming a dam. Either way, we are probably going to end up wet, tired and maybe irritated. Still, I’ll take the cracked cup if I’m offered a choice. Less chance of drowning […]

All Hallow’s Eve

Halloween, or All Hallow’s Eve as the church would have it, is today. This evening there will be visits from assorted ghosts and goblins as well as the occasional ninja fighter and superhero. All Hallow’s Eve was the Christian church’s answer to Samhain, a pagan festival of equal parts ancestor veneration and rituals designed to […]
