The Deep Life of John Grisham


As longtime readers know, I enjoy tracking down the deep work habits of well known and highly accomplished individuals. This is why I was happy to recently stumble across a pair of interviews (here and here) in which the novelist John Grisham describes his professio...

If you’re in San Francisco and read fantasy, science fiction, or horror, I can’t recommend Borderlands enough. The store...

Eric S. Raymond Eric S. Raymond's blog:

Colossal Cave Adventure was the origin of many things; the text adventure game, the dungeon-crawling D&D (computer) game, the MOO, the roguelike genre. Computer gaming as we know it would not exist without ADVENT (as it was known in its original PDP-10 incarnation).



Long ago, you might have pl...

Soundgarden Dublin
Soundgarden in Dublin, 2013, the last time I saw them.

It’s Friday evening. I’m 17. I jump on my bike and swing out of our drive, past the yellow field in which we drink, through my sleepy, sun-warmed village and onto the road to my friend’s house. It’s the place we all meet before heading into Ch...

I suppose all of the people and places that brush against our lives shape us, but some more so than others. Some people you can know for years without ever truly knowing them. Others, it takes only a short while for them to become the dearest of friends.

The pig’s perspective. Will probably tinker a little more, but this one’s pretty much done. Along with Delicate Donkey and the Marquis, this is a small piece, around 22 cm/8.5″). Edition will probably be 8 or 12, and I think I’ll try out a pale patina.

There’s a lot of advice swirling around out there on “How to talk to your partner” – a thousand techniques to chip past their defensiveness, speak loudly enough to be heard, be nice enough to encourage niceness.

How God Opens the Eyes of the Heart

How does someone who is blind to the glory of God come to see him for who he really is?



To be sure, the natural eyes and ears and brains are part of the process. Without them we cannot even see or hear or construe the natural things that reveal God’s glory: creation, incarnation, gospel, Scripture...

I started writing journals in 1990. I was 15, and I dreamed of being a novelist. 


But I didn't seriously commit to writing my first novel until 2009 when I was 34, nearly 20 years later.
