by So there are times when I’m a haiku addict, and while I mean more writing than reading, there are several books in the house and I have a twitter stream saved that I can skim whenever I feel the need. That stream gives me a cross section from incredible to cringe, but it’s always …

2017 Writing Summary

2017 Writing Summary

by Let’s face it, 2017 was a rather weak writing year for me. The year came with some major life adjustments, including, in particular, a much-increased set of responsibilities at work, some family health issues, and dealing with my oldest child moving out on his own to go to school.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

by I don’t follow the calendar much for cultural reasons, at least not for cultural reasons tied to the culture I live in.

Writing Report for 11 December 2017

by The busy-ness seems to continue. I didn’t get a lot done on the writing front this week and, now that I look back, that seems completely normal when I’m on day shift in the past year. Working nights, I seem to have more quiet time available. Accomplishments rank above zero, but count mainly as …

I Should Be A Tragically Hip Fan

I Should Be A Tragically Hip Fan

by So, I’ve never really been a Tragically Hip fan. There are plenty of reasons I should be, the least of which is that I’m related to one of the band members on my mother’s side, not that I’ve seen him since I was a little kid. As close as I’ll get to name-dropping. Far …
