I was at a diner in Chicago with a friend, this was probably 1999 or 2000, and I wrote out a list of things I wanted to do in my lifetime. The list was written in crayon on a diner napkin. I don't remember all of it, but a couple of more interesting items were drive a cab in Seattle and live at a Tibetan monastery for a year.

What would've happened if I had actually done everything on that list? Would Trump be president? Would Prince still be alive? Would Fukushima be the site of an inter dimensional portal?

Wait, I think that happened. I think Fukushima IS the site of an inter dimensional portal...

Anyway... Someday, I think I'll write a book about a 20-something that makes a list at a diner in Chicago, and actually does everything on it ;-)(less)

Hello friends!

It's time for another edition of Scott's Not Even Remotely Helpful for Authors Blog, where I post pretty useless stuff on a very infrequent basis.

Today, I'm going to give an update on my current work in progress.

It's in progress.

Ha! I kill me. I absolutely kill me.

Okay, okay. Fine. I'll share a few more details.

I'm about 30k words into a first draft. The story is set in present da... Read more of this blog post »

My blog is pretty awful. Rotten, really. Terrible stuff. A complete waste of time.

Hope you enjoy it!

“I would not have even considered you an appetizer. Rats that have fed on syphilitic sailors would be preferable to drinking from you. I swear, I can smell Krispy Kremes and cheese curds oozing from your every pathetic pore.”
