The New Year’s Resolution I Haven’t Kept

Not just to be more consistent with my own bloody blog – but the one resolution I promised to keep after 6 months of flying back and forth was to buy something from SkyMall! Who does buy from there? People must, I know, or they wouldn’t still publish the darn thing. Sure, everyone likes to dream about a wooden bracelet assistant that helps you snap the clasp … but do people buy them?

Do we need another hero?

In moving forward in a couple of writing projects, I have been stalled several times and found myself asking,”Why? Why now? Why now, when I clearly need to get some things finished, become rich and famous and buy the house next door so I can knock it down and make a two-story pool that gets me into Architectural Digest and Tina Turner sees it and contacts me so we can become best friends and hang out all the time and re-enact 80s videos together?” Perhaps…

Done is Better

One of the things about being a writer, especially one with one foot in the semi-corporate world and one barely in the entertainment (if mainly licensed) world, is – what can you safely blog about? Reviewing things (films, TV, incredibly heavy paperback copies of Game of Thrones) is dicey.

New look, new book!

A new logo and new look for Chip Carter.com! I’m so stoked, I love this new icon, designed by the awesome folks at The MindLabs! Also … my new book (yes, it’s small – but it IS a book, gosh-darn it!) comes out this month. The Star Trek Light-up Phaser and mini-book is on Amazon and will be in stores soon! Off to Phoenix for a conference, so no time to discuss this week’s Justified, RuPaul OR the Real Housewives of BH reunion!

Head Over Achille’s Heel

It’s St. Paddy’s Day – and begorrah, I’m hoping for some luck o’ the Irish to  be rubbing my way as I begin taking steroids! No, NOT that kind of steroids. I finally went to a podiatrist. I’d just incorporated the word “orthotics” into my daily life (which – ugh, just makes you sound old … the Depends are next, I reckon), and now I find out my tendon was nearly (and this is his word) shredded. Ow. The motorcycle landed on the side of…

Year of the Dragon Razor

Happy Year of the Dragon! And it’s Kung Fuesday, to boot. So let’s see what’s up … Still in the throes of my writing project, which I have titled Project: Americano. Why? Well, it sounds good, and I’ve been working on it each day at lunch. I order an Americano, and that breezes me through 3-4 pages during my lunch hour. Less if the lady with glitter in her hair gets to the counter before me and orders five drinks. My foot is almost able…
