I write and write and write until I like it. Then I rewrite and rewrite and rewrite until everybody likes it. But those damn words keep filling up my head till I have to get them out!


    I’m overdue.  I haven’t ranted in a while. I tried to take a more live and let live stance;  water rolling down my back, so to speak, but now… I can’t hold it in any longer. To all media.  Print,… Read More ›

  • Ahoy!

          My grandson Bennett was so excited that the weather had finally turned warm that he pulled on his shirt backwards, didn’t comb his hair, forgot about socks    and barely got his shoes on the right feet before… Read More ›

  • Mickey Mouse Goth Club

    Once again, I sit before the screen and the only thing going on is the taunting of damn blinking cursor.  I thought posting more to my blog would get me motivated to produce stories. If anything, it wears me out…. Read More ›

  • The elephant in the room

    I have  been putting together the bare bones of a new story.  As I was mind-mapping in prep of an outline(writing down anything that comes to mind when thinking about the story), I saw an old pattern creep in. It’s… Read More ›

  • I heard her voice.

    I heard her voice call my name and for a split second, I forgot she was gone. Then her absence came back. Since Mom’s death last spring, I’ve had very few dreams of her and most have been just flashes… Read More ›

  • I don’t wanna

    I don’t want to write today. What I’d really like to do is fly. Not in a plane but with wings or on a magic carpet or something. I could be like the kid in the children’s story, The Little… Read More ›

  • WTF!

    My hideously uncreative and banal day-job is arranging travel plans for other people, paying their bills and ordering equipment worth more than my house. Today, our office received an email- warning us of a disgruntled and somewhat “unstable” ex-employee who… Read More ›
