Sometimes One too Many is a real thing

So, doing the math lately as I skip from project to project, recover from work, and be a father, a husband, and keeping up the socials, the learning for work, the learning for being an author… So, rather than push myself even more in debt–time and financial. I think I’m finally ready to walk away…

Thank you for your support

Is something I really feel in the #writingcommunity. Authors helping Authors helping would be Authors. Editors and Readers all jumbled in there with support, and mostly generous intentions. Why this week alone shows it in a lot of my interactions. I gave: 1 15k beta/critque 2 short/flash beta read with comments 3 cover impressions I…

What a wildly fun, intense week it’s been

Spent the week in Utah, Park City to be exact. But I wasn’t there for the Olympics memorabilia, nor the skiing. Anyone who knows me would get a good chuckle at that idea. No, I was there for my writing. Figured get some critique, spend some time soaking in the being alone to get more…

M. Knight Intro

Michael Knight just published his first shared license work in the World of Darkness. World of Darkness Sorcerer is available on the Storyteller’s Vault of DrivethruRPG. A disaster befell the upload and listing of the work so it may not be available just now as Michael has taken it down for corrections and finding where…

The importance of Community

For many writing, being an author is a private, soloist practice. But for so many of us, having a community or several is very, very important. Things like social media help with part of that community, conferences and workshops another. But above all I think that community starts by people listening to one another. Communities…

And one day

Isn’t that how it’s supposed to be? You make all the plans. You buy all the gear. Then you put things down, the plans put away for a day or a week. Only to pick up the plans later, fresh, and go over them again, look for holes, gaps before packing things up and testing…

New Partnerships

note: Trying out two new characters. Please, if you read this, put your thoughts down below. ======================= Detective Steve Murphy sits or more accurately slouches in a seat at the bar. His glass half empty with some amber colored liquid. As he takes a sip, his face is unresponsive to any taste, so haggard and…

My #amwriting place

Originally published on 8/3/11 Today, is the second birthday of the #amwriting hashtag on twitter and the #amwriting group in general. Today, many of us, published and not, struggling or not, are posting in a sort of party, celebrating the group that we share. My thought for the group is about my #amwriting place. My…

You Have to Clean the Cages

“Well Mr Cox, what does our little Feng want now?” The speaker could have been called well dressed, especially in places that dealt with mad scientists and ring leaders. Standing almost a half a foot taller than five feet, the speaker was dressed in a long once white lab coat, re-enforced at the hem, patched…

The Dragon goes fishing

Buzz, BUZZ, Buzz, BUZZ. Matt slapped the alarm clock off, and blinking his eyes awake, he flew downstairs to find his Dad already in the kitchen. Soon they were out the door and off. As the Sun painted the sky pink and then blue, Matt’s Dad signaled that they were here. A small bend in…
