I haven’t posted anything in a while.
This is not a consequence of being idle; on the contrary, I’m quite busy. I participated in National Novel Writing Month for the third year in a row. While I didn’t score a ‘win’ by logging 50,000 words in the 30 days of November, … Continue reading
Multitools are great. The fewer things you have to carry, the freer you are to move about and do the kind of work you do wherever you do it best. I carry a Leatherman all the time: it comes in handy quite often for the occasional repair. But, my kind … Continue reading
It takes discipline to write.
It takes discipline to get up at 5:30 every morning and run several miles.
It takes discipline to do both every day before work.

It’s been a few days since my last post. It hasn’t been an intentional hiatus; merely the byproduct of a busy period. Work busy, home busy. Tiredness. Distraction.
As you can already tell, the hiatus has ended. We now continue our regular transmissions.
Where are my people?

The steady stream of Card-a-Day descriptions has enabled me to engage in writing (very) short-form fiction on a near-daily basis, which has been fun and sometimes amusing. I hope these little snippets have also been enjoyable to readers.
But I need to dust off my stack of half-finished blog posts and … Continue reading
