July 30th Update

I’ll just be plain: I’m not feeling very well. I got over Covid fast enough, symptoms disappeared, and I felt back to normalize, with periods of dizziness or light-headedness as I tried to walk. Even short distances winded me. I’m a big guy, but I’ve been on all sides of the scale. Even being bigger…

June 2022 Update

One Chapter done in the new piece…only been fiddling with it a little bit. Steam Deck arrived and that consumed a lot of my time. Also still pending about 10 more video pieces I need to edit…not hard, just time-consuming. The project involves splicing together 7 camera feeds and 2 audio streams in a kinda-sorta…

Circle Broken – Final Update

Afternoon, all. The conclusion to ‘The Curse of Lilith’ is complete, and all of the editing and revisions have been finished. I submitted it to Amazon a few minutes ago, so today or tomorrow you should see the work available for purchase. I apologize that the paperback costs so much ($14 to $15)…but I didn’t…

Covid

Despite getting all the shots in the world… *ahem* Vaccines and booster shots, thank you very much… I still came down with Covid last week. I’m feeling a million times better now, and thank you for your concern. Sadly, it derailed me from all the editing I was doing on ‘Circle Broken’, so she had…

May 3rd Update:

Editing proceeds on ‘Circle Broken’. Approx 6 Chapters in. I have to give it a few go rounds just to be certain I’ve caught everything. I wasn’t aware that double-spacing after a period is now no longer considered the standard. Apparently it’s only a single space. Guess I’m gonna be a rebel and tap-tap all…

Circle Broken is complete.

I finished it yesterday, and I’m letting my mind cool off from it a bit before I start to edit. I had actually wanted to start today, but wizard of efficiency that I am, I deleted about 99% of my music collection. At least I have all of the ‘A’s and a few Brittany Spears…

March 2022 Update

I’m still in the last quarter of the Chapter I was on my last update. A lot of my free time went to working on that video project I had mentioned previously. Editing can be time-consuming, video even more! They eye gets bored pretty easily, and the video and audio have to flow smoothly to…

About 6 to go…

5 or 6 Chapters left until the first draft of Circle Broken is completed. Last few Chapters have been the hardest. Lots of good guys had to go. The race to the end is underway. Then I can start with the editing, and you can finally see how everything turns out. Been a long road,…

My love (and hate) of OneNote

Oh how I love thee, OneNote of Microsoft fame. How I can stuff a million ideas into you. And all my to-do lists. And pictures. And keep track of important chronological stuff. And work to-do lists. And people’s birthdays that I immediately forget I’ve documented and never check again only to discover on the date…

February Update/Ukraine

As much as I wanted to crush the last few Chapters of Lilith this month, fate and every other complication kept that from happening. I’m only a little further than I was in the work. I did pursue some other literary projects I’ve been keeping on the back burner, and tweaked a few ideas. I…

Late January Update

Start of Chapter 27. 140,000 words. It’s been moving quickly, events-wise, in the City. I’ve pulled back a tad to slow down so I can get certain points right (even before the proofing). Key moments for the whole story as a work approach, and I don’t want to under (or over) sell them after all…

Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a safe and awesome holiday season to wrap up 2021. It’s been pretty rough since Covid slammed the world, taking over our lives what seems like ages ago. Hopefully you’ve been able to make it through unscathed and are still chugging away at your daily. 🙂 In other news, the sequel…
