Skip to the Good Bit

So on day three of unemployment, I feel like I'm finally back on track as far as writing goes. I should have chapter four done either tonight or tomorrow and I'm now realizing just how long this whole thing is gonna be when it's done. Suffice to say, the length is gonna be pretty intimidating,… Continue reading Skip to the Good Bit

A Slightly Atypical Charlottesville Post

TL;DR The Neo-Nazists and white supremacists have been around for a long time, the Trump rhetoric has only made them more confident, and I feel a little unwelcome in the country of my birth. All the things that happened in Charlottesville were pretty shocking to a lot of people. All of a sudden, white nationalists… Continue reading A Slightly Atypical Charlottesville Post

More of the Same

So, I like to re-watch things. Actually, I love to rewatch things. This is something that usually sort of shocks people when I share it because, while some people like to rewatch things, I take to another level. To put it bluntly, I honestly have no idea how many times I've seen entire series like Parks &… Continue reading More of the Same

Searching for the Strategy?

If you're like me, seeing and hearing about everything going on with North Korea is pretty unsettling. However, some pretty important people aren't very worried at all. Which is kind of confusing because I never know what to think when I look to the Trump administration for strategy updates. One day, the CIA director says… Continue reading Searching for the Strategy?

Oh, the Endless Distractions

Writing is not the easiest thing in the world by any means. I'm sure I'm not the only person who gets a little anxious just thinking about sitting down and devoting time to it, which is probably why my personal work usually takes a while. And I'm probably not the only person who finds it… Continue reading Oh, the Endless Distractions

Finding my Way

So, I guess in an effort to stick to my guns in a previous post about criticism and feedback, I wanted to share a short excerpt (roughly six pages in Word/2,000 words) from the beginning of the novel I'm currently working on. I haven't shared it without people I don't know personally in quite some… Continue reading Finding my Way

Preparing for the Oncoming Storm

One of the biggest turn-offs for writing novels, if not the biggest, in my opinion, is all of the setup. That part of the novel filled to the brim with exposition, precise details, sometimes a timeline of events. Naturally, this can be something spread out rather than a giant wall of text (GWT). Nevertheless, it's… Continue reading Preparing for the Oncoming Storm

Planet Defense Force Assemble!

So I guess Wednesdays are gonna be my laid back days. I never seem to find time to write, so I apologize in advance for the mediocre content. NASA recently started to fill a new role in their administration, a planetary protection officer, which honestly does not actually seem as badass as the name implies.… Continue reading Planet Defense Force Assemble!
