Come along as I create a series

In the past I have made posts about my efforts to write a book on a pair of princes whose uncle stole their birthright. It seems like something always brings the story to a standstill and, more often than not, I end up starting it all over from the beginning. And yet, it is a […]

Mars Station One

Over the years I have worked off and on on making a science fiction story about the first manned outpost on Mars. This is a bit of a pet project of mine that goes back many many years and is, in a large part, very close to me on a personal level. I got my […]

Skyrim: Child Can’t Carry Gifts … needs… medicine?

Okay, so, I have been cleaning out my SPAM filter and, as usual, it is taking me a while since I am one of those types that will double check things that get auto flagged to make sure someone’s actual comment did not get accidentally flagged as being SPAM. I’ve seen it happen a couple […]

Why Blender for 3D modeling?

I started using Blender many many years ago, long enough ago that to get an accurate date range I would have to dig through things a lot, but let’s just settle on I have been using it since before Elephant’s Dream was made, shall we? I think anyone familiar with the program can agree that’s […]

Social media has removed a very important word from common use

Social media uses the word “friend” as a tag for adding someone to a list of people from whom we desire to see the posts or other shared media. This gives many a warm feeling to know they have a lot of friends who they follow and who follow them – even celebrities can be […]

Preparing for NaNoWriMo 2016

I’ve set myself a goal for this year to not only participate in NaNoWriMo, but to actually create something that will be taken beyond NaNo and revised into a publishable novel. Over the next month I will working my way through a writing class and crafting my NaNo story, at the end of each day […]

Must Organize Computer Files

As I went to save the notes for my work on Shadowlord’s Gambit I realized I had a serious problem with my computer. Over the past few years it has got as chaotic as the rest of my life and I have been left with stray folders in several places that have parts of things […]

Starting Over and Rebuilding

Nothing quite like realizing that you have to rebuild everything, including your life, over from scratch to make you really sit back and take a look at what you want to keep.

This post marks a important point in my life, as it is the starting over for this website, my writing life, and, well… […]

The writings of an anthropophobic gamer

It’s been a long time since I last wrote on this website, long enough that for a while I was thinking I would just let the site fade away. I’ve had it for over 15 years now and in that time it seems like life has left this site neglected more often than not.

Still, […]

PS4 Destiny Pre-order

As part of my re-directed focus to this site and my readers, I decided it is time to catch up with the rest of the gaming community via the purchase of a PS4.

I was in GameStop today, picking something up for someone else, and decided to make the leap. I had credit at the […]
