I don't believe in guilt. When I tell people this (I've mentioned it to only a few) they look at me askance, wondering if I am trying to be funny.

I’m back in the writing saddle after a year, the absence probably due to having way too many headache, and being out of commission 50-60 per cent of my days. It is hard to maintain a flow, let alone keep focus, when the head just wants to be elsewhere. I spent much of the weekend … Continue reading After A Year Away

That is … Continue reading One Hour from Done

When it means the difference between feeling so bad that I must avoid the world? When it means not knowing if my decent mood will still be there … Continue reading About those Meds
May 15, 2016 Currently in discussions regarding the contract. Basically, the publisher wants every right imaginable in perpetuity, and I would prefer to give them only the rights they plan to need (for a limited, reasonable amount of time). And other odds 'n ends. I expect a quick response because they don't mess around, at … Continue reading Rockin n’a Rollin

I'm starting to browse though my journals for 2010, pulling out important bits and passages, and working them into the writing. At the same time, starting to build content into Part Two - … Continue reading Mid-February
