I have more ideas than I could ever possibly write. Occasionally I may get stuck on a scene or a plot point, but a good night's sleep (or a couple of drinks) usually clears that right up.

Yes, that sounds patronizing as hell, but it's the the best advice there is. A writer that writes is infinitely better than somebody that's just thinking/wishing/dreaming about writing.

…and I’m Back!

 

Yes, I’ve been gone for a while.    No, I did not intend for it to happen, and yes, I apologize profusely for vanishing on my fans yet again.   But this time was different.   This time I’ve got a potentially disturbing revelation concerning my activities during my recent absence.   You see, this wasn’t one of my normal “vanish for months/years while playing video games” hiatus...
