Geekery

Hello! As I write this, I am sitting in my favorite restaurant on a (formerly) rainy Saturday. I came to my favorite restaurant for two reasons: The food is awesome, and its location has the best 5g cell service for an hour’s drive in any direction. My plan...

Consular Times – A Writing Update

At 11:52pm on 22 September 2021, I finished Consular Times, Book 3 of the Primogenitor Saga. I’ve done a quick proof of sections, and my editor still has the second half (minus the final five chapters). What this means is that the story is solid, but there are...

16 September 2021: A Writing Update

Hello and good evening, Well…it’s evening here as I write this. I realized when I hopped over here to make the post about “Skullkeep” that I hadn’t posted a writing update lately. Not that I actually think anyone is reading this, but one...

Day 4: 5 August 2021

Today was a Life Errands day, I’m afraid. Part of me thinks it would be perfect if I could just sit at my computer and write, but the more aware parts of me know that would not be healthy in any sense of the word. So, I run my life errands.   Daily Word...

Day 3: 4 August 2021

Day 3: 4 August 2021 Well, I did better today than I did yesterday, but as Grimlock would say, “Not more better enough.” I had to hop to a different project this evening, just to clear my head.  “What comes next” was proving a bit elusive on my...
