David Menefee lives on a 41-acre ranch with his partner Rachel Anderson in rural northern California.

David alternates between working from his home office on websites for non-profit organizations and writing short stories and novels. He is also a practitioner of a variety of arcane arts, including brewing and alchemy (which are very closely related), and he teaches a small class in philosophy for local students.

Rachel manages the ranch and the finances and performs veterinary care for our small family of critters. She also writes music and lyrics for banjo and ukulele, as well as short-form poetry, both rhyming and free verse.

If I can't think of something to say within the context of the story/poem/whatever, I write about what's blocking me. Sometimes it's inertia, sometimes it's a brain-straining puzzle that I can't muster the energy to solve. Usually when I do this, the block comes loose.

Lately, though, I haven't had as much of a problem with block. Most of the time I can power through it, as I've broken down my writing practice along the lines of my strengths and weaknesses. That is, when I start a story, I use screenplay format to dump the dialog and events as fast as I can see them happening in my mind. Later, I add descriptive detail, internalizations, sequels to scenes, and so on. Those are the things that used to block me, but since I already know where the story *should* go, I can push through the block more easily.(less)

A Change in Direction

For the past several years, I’ve been languishing in a disorganized online menagerie of social media and websites. This site has suffered as a result, particularly my blog. After returning from my trip to Europe (about which more blog posts will come soon!), I decided to bid Facebook farewell and put my energy here. I have mixed feelings about this decision, of course. On the one hand, I have a ne
