Hence the Name…

Yes I'm still alive and no I did not forget about you. Truth is I have just been very, very busy trying to put the book together. I am compiling a collection of short stores written and published on this blog and making them into a book. That book is scheduled to release on April 4th, which... Continue Reading →

Crunch Time…

Things are getting very interesting around these parts. I am at the beginning of the end. Or a better phrasing may be to say, I have just begun the final level for this particular iteration of the game. It's the fourth quarter, we've entered the final stretch. For the past year and a half I have been... Continue Reading →

To be Clever and Witty…

I have a conundrum. I am stuck between a rock and a hard place when it comes to my writing and this blog. On the one hand, I need to write to become better; a better writer, a better storyteller, a better craftsman. Then on the other hand, I would like to drive traffic to the blog, to...

Self-doubt will crush an author before an author can even become an author. Self-doubt is the mind-killer. Self-doubt is the little-death that brings total obliteration.... Continue Reading →

The Desire to be Better

I'm decent. And by that I mean, I am a decent human being. I'm a decent father, a decent son, a decent husband, even a decent writer, but the thing is, I desire to be better. I can't live with decent. I need more. I have always been this way. You could call it being ambitious. I... Continue Reading →

Fear is an Illusion…

Fear is an illusion, a fancy trick crafted by the mind in an attempt to protect you from a failure that could never exist if you eliminate those fears and go forward. Fear is an illusion, a psychological side effect of one's most basic and primal instinct for survival. It  is a means to an... Continue Reading →
