Something different I’ve been a little quieter than planned. In addition to catching up on a backlog of things to do, I’ve been doing some editing on the next Cigars and Legs book. It’s going to be a collection of shorts and a novella, a little more to it than the White Dames. After I put that collection out, I’m… Read more »
The following program is a parody. Any resemblance of characters contained below is purely intentional humor. As the camera pans over the crowd — which is yuuuge and going wild, it eventually settles on the ring. Standard wrestling ring but with red, white, and blue ropes and turnbuckle pads. One Donald J. Trump stands in center ring, holding a microphone,… Read more »
Sometimes, you just have to run with it The last few days I’ve written a large number of words I don’t particularly care for. Why? Because sometimes you have to. This is stuff I’ll never publish, never show anyone. But it’s covering a lot of ground with ideas I have, things I want to write, but things that aren’t really… Read more »
The Lawson Redirect Most all of my writing time and energy is currently going to fiction writing. I can pontificate all I want about politics, and I truly have a passion for it and care deeply about the people currently getting the short end, but it is very tiresome and I do not get a cent from writing it.

Under a similar standard we should make 2016 great and not be passive about that and not… Read more »
Merry Christmas I haven’t written about it much here, but in my younger days I was a big fan of professional wrestling. This was during the height of its popularity in the nineties, a time when there were more superstars than ever before (or since, if you ask me). There were still a lot of problems with it but overall… Read more »
Starting today, ending the day after Christmas: Prisoners of Sorcery free! The trap shut without warning. After laying low and working toward a plan to get themselves out of the situation they found themselves in during the events of The Five, Aiden and his friends were scooped up by a vile sorcerer. Split up and put into a maze-like dungeon… Read more »
On Sunday, I pasted the text into the validation tool at the National Novel Writing Month website. I crossed the finish line. So that’s done, and now it’s December.
Wow, taking a week off during NNWM is near disastrous. After getting well behind even having a shot at finishing, I’ve made great strides toward catching up. Beating my best time isn’t going to happen, but that’s a goal for the future. I do enjoy what I’m writing. Assuming I don’t write anything after this post, I will need to… Read more »
Today is day three of NNWM. After a zero word day Sunday, I made up for it with a 2500 word day Monday. To beat my record for time, I need to average just over 2200 per day. Starting in the hole isn’t great but it isn’t a disaster either.
