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 […]

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 […]

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?

The fire appellation comes from the huge, randomly jutting protuberances of reddish sandstone – in effect, it looks like fire frozen in […]

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 […]
