I haven't really posted on things going on in the real world. Usually, I focus on my writing - fictional, pop-cultural, and otherwise. But last night I watched the viral video of Daniel Ashley Pierce's family disowning him and abusing him. And today I'm still thinking about it.

When you’ve been knocked out of the proverbial saddle - saddle being writing a blog – it’s not so easy to get back in the groove. Not sure why that is. That’s not true, I do know. Sort of. Like developing any new habit, or maintaining an established habit even, to break the stride or rhythm creat... Read more of this blog post »

Looking back over my posts this summer…


Man, I’ve been such a mushball.


All you need is love and family and et cetera et cetera. But honestly: that’s how it’s felt, like we’ve been existing in this little just-us bubble, and it’s exactly what we needed after a year of being separated more often t...

I’ve always been interested in how other writers write. Not the mechanical aspects, such as using longhand or a computer, or speaking the words into a word processing program, (although that too is interesting and perhaps fodder for a later blog), I’m more interested in the first draft process.

The good news is, I finally understand why the beginning of Book 1 has been such a problem. It's not the prose. It's not the main character, per se. It's not bad luck, or a hatred of telepaths, or anything arcane. It's jaded re... Read more of this blog post »
