Billy Joel

Billy Joel

I have not really done a pure stream of consciousness post in a while. Today, as I sit in stereotypical writer mode, it seems like a good  day to do one. For those of you who have encountered it before, now is a good time to run. For those of you who have not … … now is a ... Read More
At long last …

At long last …

Once upon a time, this basically lazy but somewhat creative guy came up with a crazy idea. He got sick of telling people he was unemployed when they asked what he did for a living, so he figured Author would be a much better way of saying it. To add some verisimilitude to this concept, he learned ... Read More
Yep. Just gonna do it.

Yep. Just gonna do it.

It is kind of ironic that today when I actually have an update on book progress after far too long, my random post of the day is actually the little creation that started the whole journey. A reminder I guess. Anyway I am actually proud of myself today. I sat down and managed to put ... Read More
Deluding myself back into action!

Deluding myself back into action!

As I have mentioned, I have been struggling with the whole “Why bother?” concept for sometime now. This not only covered blogging, but pretty much everything to do with life these days. Why look for another pointless job that will only make me miserable for instance. I solved that issue pretty easily by not really looking. But sadly this makes ... Read More

Wordy wordlessness

Wordy wordlessness

Words have great power! This is a theme I often use in my attempts at writing on this blog, but it is by no means an original idea.

One hundred (and fifty?) words …

It’s time for me to follow my own advice! I missed last week’s 100 word challenge, even though it was a good one. So I am doing it this week as well as the new one. Two for the price of … well a little effort on my part. Last week’s challenge was something to ... Read More
Life is an animated movie.

Life is an animated movie.

For as long as I can remember I have been fascinated by animation. Even now as an “adult” my favorite movies and TV shows to watch are of the animated variety. I have often wondered why this is. Not that I was too concerned about it. But it does present a bit of social difficulty when a ... Read More
Family of Strangers

Family of Strangers

Everyone craves stability. Even the most adventurous soul needs a solid support once in a while. Is it any wonder we often fear the unknown? It threatens our stability. One of my blogging friends touched on this in her recent post If You can’t Beat’em, Juggle. She is an amazing woman who struggles with mental illness as she wanders the ... Read More
