I timebox my writing time, meaning I have specific time which I set aside for writing. When the clock strikes Write O'clock, I have two options:

1. Work on creative stuff (yay!)

or if I've got writer's block,

2. Work on boring stuff I set aside for myself to work on while I was being creative.

For example, I hate describing people's clothing. I have no sense of fashion, thus it annoys me to no end having to describe anything that anyone in my book is wearing. So, I save that for "Writer's Block Tal." It's his job to do the stuff that "Creative Tal" doesn't want to do.(less)

First, I'm Kickstarting a dark sci-fi noir comicbook called FORK. It's a one-shot story about a malfunctioning time machine and two men who seek to use it for different ends: One seeks power, the other hopes to find the best version of his life Read more of this blog post »

Real Ultimate Power by Robert  Hamburger
"It took me a few pages to start thinking this book would get "old" really soon. I kept thinking this, but then the book ended. This book never gets old. It should have gotten old. It defies logic that it never gets old. This book is awesome."

The Punch Escrow by Tal M. Klein
"very good, taut, good pacing, smart tech forward sci-fi, but an ending that is good not great and seems a little rushed.

Tal M. Klein and 175 other people liked Bradley's review of Project Hail Mary:
Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir
"And we're back. I loved the Martian and I was pretty okay with Artemis, but Project Hail Mary is a slam dunk. Weir kills it here.

This is a callback to all the best science porn we love in SF. Clear descriptions, great discoveries, and plenty of norma" Read more of this review »

“This is like a reverse clown car.”
Tal M. Klein, The Punch Escrow

“When railroads were first introduced, some people thought the speed would be so intense, it would cause their organs to shoot out of their rectums”
Tal M. Klein, The Punch Escrow

“Imagine looking in the mirror and not knowing who you are. An empty face staring back. No one. We rarely think about how much air is around us until we can’t breathe. We always imagine what it would be like to be someone else, but when we do so, it’s with the guise that beneath it all, we know who we really are. Take that away, and who are we?”
Tal M. Klein, The Punch Escrow
