Anthems & Rejection

It’s no secret I’m a Nashville Predators fan. It started when I landed the narrator role for Beneath The Ice, something I managed to do against some big names, especially for Nashville. Charlie Daniels was considered and I believe Vince Gill read for the part too. They picked me. How could I not love them?…

A Quick Me Update

Last month, I posted about being newly diagnosed with ADD and the sudden changes brought on by the medication. And since then I haven’t posted. I’m keeping a journal of my experiences. It started as a way to track med usage and response as a part of the titration process (the medical word for adjusting…

Suddenly, a Major Change appears

That’s Ruby helping me with landscaping. She’s awesome. Hi. I’m back again. After my typical 3-4+ month lack of posts, here’s a new one. And it might explain a lot about the typical 3-4+ month lack of posts. Good to be back. Hope I can stay for a while this time. Spring is full of gorgeous struggle, beauty…

Theft

At the very moment I am writing this, someone is stealing from me. That website I mentioned in the last post – the one that was using my work without permission? Still doing it. Despite cease-and-desist letters and DMCAs to webhosts, a big chunk of my work is still there. Some of my stuff was removed, after…

Not The 20 Minutes I Wanted To Do, But…

Today’s 20 minutes of writing sucked. It’s not that what I wrote was crap, it’s just that I hated to have to write it, especially with the knowledge that I will most likely have to spend more time on this issue. My writing time today was spent detailing each image and passage of text that…

What The Fuck Was That All About?

You could probably ask that question of 2016 in general, and that’s a really big, long, nasty answer. But I can tell you what happened with me.  There’s one entry on this blog in the last 5 months: my pizza dough recipe. Back in July, I was boasting about a book I had written. So what happened? Where’s the…

My Pizza Dough Recipe

This recipe is the result of perusing a virtual pile of dough recipes and dozens of trials (with hundred of errors) finding what did and did not work for me. I hope you weren’t expecting a short recipe – I don’t do short recipes. Sorry. There is an important first step to making pizza dough: Go…

Checking In

What a summer that was! Between the most bizarre presidential election I’ve seen, featuring the two candidates with the lowest favorability ratings on record, and my own trip down the rabbit hole, Summer 2016 sure was… memorable. Yeah, let’s go with “memorable”. How about “remedial” too, as in again paying tuition to learn a lesson I…

Learning When To Let Go

  Wednesday afternoon, we got a new foster kitten. She was somewhere in the 7-10 day old range, eyes not quite open, and had been placed with a surrogate mama cat and her litter. This is the ideal situation for a singlet (our term for a single kitten outside of a litter) since the kitten…

So Where’s That Book, Then?

as soon as this sucker gets published, I’ll buy a white suit and behave even more curmudgeonly I can’t remember exactly what drugs I must have been on when I said July 20 was our targeted release date. That was insanely aggressive, so I’m guessing some combo of PCP, grizzly bear hormones, and Red Bull dabs. Needless…
