Flash Fiction Prompt

I was listening to Episode 35 of Anthology yesterday which covered the topic of genies.  It got me thinking a little bit about something to write, but as usual I was on a walk while I was listening to this is all based on memory! Anyway, I thought I’d provide everyone with a Flash Fiction […]

Short Story: The Wrist Watch

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that I had a short story I wanted to share with you, and that it needed some work.  Well, I decided to abandon that story (for now; it needs a lot more work and I didn’t leave myself enough time).  However, I did find a mostly complete version […]

Story Update

I don’t have a big post for you today, but instead a story update.  In one of my recent goal update posts I mentioned that I wanted to get back to writing some more fiction.  I had the idea that I was going to share an original piece with you today, but due to time […]

In Memory of a Great Dog

On Thursday April 6th, 2017 – I couldn’t tell you exactly what time – my wife and I had to make the difficult decision to put down our dog Hank.  He was suffering from blastomycosis, a terrible fungal infection that was making it hard for him to breathe in his last days.  We were sad […]

Freelance Writing

Let’s Talk About Ads

Let’s talk about ads! Not the science behind marketing, blah blah blah. Smarter people than me can take care of that conversation. Instead, I want to talk about ads in general, and things that are ad-supported. The topic that brought this to mind was a recent post on /r/podcasts about sponsors.  It was what you’d call […]

Looking Back at Old Reviews

For some reason while writing yesterday’s post, I went looking at older posts from my old blog.  One thing that struck me immediately was that I wrote very prolifically, and with just about the same enthusiasm as I am with this blog.  A lot of the early posts are reviews of different pieces of media […]
