….what’s your function? Well, in my case, it’s just a massive amount of being scatter-brained and every time I think I’m going to get any writing done…Something Happens. Having to deal with government paperwork. Yelling at the California EDD. Not trying to go crazy with my need to have human contact with people that aren’t … Continue reading Conjunction Junction…
…and, it’s sounding like it’s going to be one of those “it wasn’t funny at the time” stories of sheer human error and hubris. We’ve been running into a lot of human error and hubris the last few months, haven’t we? If it’s down for a good, long time…I might have to have social interactions … Continue reading Well, Facebook Is Down…
I’ve been told that it’s been a rough time for everyone looking for a job. Let me tell you, it is rough all around. I swear, it’s either “get a job doing warehouse/delivery/Amazon work,” which I’ve already had the warning signs that I have my father’s (and uncle’s) joints and back. That kind of work … Continue reading The “Joys Of Job Hunting”
One of the things that any creative has to be careful about is trying out new tools. Let’s face it-90% of creative people have some form of neurosis and the remainder are able to hide it really well. And, one of these neurosis is about our tools. I’ve met people that have patched up, repaired, … Continue reading Trying A New Tool
So, I’m trying to get more of The Winter Solist done, and every time I think I’m able to get more than a page or two written… I become the Default Dad. And, I have my own honey-do list. This is a scary thing, terrifying. Dealing with the State of California and all of it’s … Continue reading Fun (Not), One Each
It’s complicated, but it’s another sign of the whole theory I have that we’re seeing a rerun of the 1970’s, but with uglier women, worse drugs, and (hopefully) better porn. Think about this for a moment-magazines. We’re talking classic paper magazines, the ones you can still find in small amounts in every supermarket and Barnes … Continue reading Paying Attention To The Changing World
One of the things I hate when reading other authors is how often they use the word “says.” This is where you roll your eyeballs and go, “okay, have you got your black turtleneck sweater and round-rimmed glasses, because you’ve just turned into a literary hipster.” Don’t, because there’s a reason for this. “Says” is … Continue reading Dealing With “Says”
It’s been a slow writing day so far, so I’m going to see what my readers can come up with. Inspired by this story prompt idea, let’s take this quote- “Death’s vastness holds no peace. I come at the end of a long road—neither human nor devil… All bends to my will.” -Demi Fiend, Shin … Continue reading Story Prompt Day Today
It’s hard to write when all of your job interviews seem to get you two to three interviews, then “we’re looking for someone else, thank you for applying.” Or variations on that theme. It’s made my dreams at night very surreal in a bad way and that hasn’t helped my mood any. I’m looking at … Continue reading Writing And Academic Progress
Short version-I’ve managed to get some writing done. LONG version-in between dealing with the State of California, despising the whole process of interviewing for jobs (seriously, four interviews for a company and not getting the job?), general frustration with a world that seems to be run by idiots, and coming up on my birthday in … Continue reading Hey, I Can See Some Light Here!
