Back from SpoCon!

| August 13, 2018

I’m back from SpoCon, and I’ll talk more about my experiences there in the coming weeks. But for now, I’m settling back into the day to day grind, enjoying the relatively clear air here, and definitely relishing the cooler temperatures of Western Washington. Spokane is a cute little place, but it’s much too high desert […]

Off for another adventure!

| April 23, 2018

This year seems to be the year of many adventures for me. This time, I’m off to the city that birthed me, to visit my mom and sisters. It’ll be a different sort of adventure, as it’s a combination of me hanging out and also working. One of my sisters and I will be commandeering […]

Quiet Monday

| April 2, 2018

I’m back from Norwescon, and I’m working on getting my head around all of the things I saw and did while I was there. There will be posts about that soon, but for today, I’m trying to have a bit of a quieter day, despite needing to catch up on a great many things!  

Off for an adventure!

| March 14, 2018

We’re off to have an adventure for a few days with some of my dearest friends. I’ve got posts set up so you can be entertained while I’m otherwise occupied. I doubt I’ll get much writing done, but it’ll be nice to give my brain a few days of recharging!

Taking Time to Relax

| January 15, 2018

Though the picture to the right isn’t my actual view today, I’m taking a bit of a break from my usual posting schedule after a weekend at Rustycon. I’ll be back to the grind tomorrow. But for today, I’m imagining being off on some tropical island and getting in some well-deserved relaxation!

A Brief Vacation!

| September 4, 2017

I’m off from my day job today, and it was going to be a writing day. Then I got a last minute invitation to PAX West/Prime, so I’m off to do that instead. I’ll return tomorrow with your regularly schedule programming!  

Quick turnaround!

| February 15, 2012

Remember that microfiction story I mentioned on Monday? It was accepted at the venue where I submitted it on Tuesday. That’s less than a 24-hour turnaround from the story being written to the story being accepted. Hooray for nearly instant gratification! The venue is Bat Terrier, and I’ll be sure to post again when my […]

It’s coming back to me!

| February 13, 2012

At least I think so. I realized today that I haven’t written any fiction since February 1st. I was coming down with a cold as we left writer’s group that night, and today was the first day I’ve had the brain power to write. Unsurprisingly, it was because I heard a song. The song was […]

Friday Recap

| February 10, 2012

This week has pretty much been a wash. I did write another book review, but that is all. Between being sick all weekend, then slowly recovering, and then Jeremy having surgery yesterday, my whole schedule has been wonky and weird and not conducive to writing. I had bold plans to finally get some writing done […]

Words of wisdom from Mr. Crowder

| February 7, 2012

I’m still not back at 100 percent yet, which is frustrating. Though I may be able to get something written tonight. Rather than write a blog post of my own today, though, I’m going to share a link from my friend Nate’s blog. Oddly enough, I was going to write about description today. And I […]
