Adjusting to New Schedule

Not much activity on the site over the last week or so, but stuff has been happening. I can guarantee you that! I’m adjusting to a new work schedule, and I’ve been trying to figure out the optimum way of doing things. There’s a project I’ll be working on for the next 3-6 months that…

Pausing to Learn

I have a bad habit (Well, numerous bad habits, but specifically in this instance…) where I tend to focus solely on writing to the exclusion of anything else. Editing takes time, and even though that’s where the real story appears it sometimes feels like a waste of time. I feel pressured to get back to…

Writing in Public: Day 12, Month 6

Today was a bit more productive than yesterday. Continued with my work on “False Seer” and managed to get about 3,400 words written. I’m midway through the story now, and hope to get the rest of it finished before the weekend is out. I still need to get back to editing “Fire with Fire” and…

Writing in Public: Day 11, Month 6

Today was a wasted day, at least during the day. A lot of errands that needed to be run, in addition to one set of phone calls that ended up taking up way longer than it should have. But, when one deals with a bureaucracy one should expect that, right? Anyway, I sat myself down…

Where I’ve Been

The last couple of weeks have been strange for me. Up until a few months ago I was not actively writing on my blog, nor was I actively keeping up with my daily word counts. At the end of approximately 8 weeks of doing just that I felt like I was in a good rhythm…

Writing in Public: Day 07, Month 02

“UnCivil Engineering” is finished!  It has also hereby been renamed “Zombielock.”  It came in at about 4,800 words.  Edited it down quite a bit and got some critical feedback on it.  It’s been fired off to Unidentified Funny Objects.  Hopefully we’ll get some good results for it. Also finished my final edits on both “Alien…

Current State of “Blah” on the Blog

Yeah, it looks pretty bland in here at the writing board.  I’ve been restructuring this place forever, and still don’t have it the way I like it.  So, it’s probably going to stay bland for a little while longer.  At least until I can work something out with my wife to get some graphical goodness…

The 11th Time’s the Charm

I just received word from Jonathan and Michele over at the Daily Science Fiction that my most recent submission to their e-zine has been short-listed and is now pending final acceptability.  A final decision should be made in no longer than a month.  This is great news, indeed!  If found acceptable, this would be my…
