Curiosity and fear warring within;
By telling you the truth,
Did I commit an irredeemable sin? Continue reading Misplaced Missive #7 – Curiosity and Fear
Shatter the soulstone,
infinite shards become whole,
characters of me.
One Tree Hill 1×02 – ‘The Places You Have Come To Fear The Most’
It’s been about a decade since I first watched One Tree Hill. The main characters ranged from shallow donkeys to deep, moral artists, you know, once you looked past their knee-jerk reactions to all the crazy drama. The art may have varied, but… integrity was at the heart – in their hearts and in their actions. They faltered and fell, and then, rose up from the ashes of their mistakes. I’m trying to do the same. The following quote struck a chord with me and I thought to share it with you folks: Continue reading What I’m (Re)Watching Weekend Note
I do not yet have interwebs in the new abode, and verizon isn’t coming until next week to hook it up.
No big deal. It’s been kind of nice sitting at home with PW and the pup listening to 98 Rock as we unpack, read, or eat data on our phones. Did you know the radio still broadcasts every night? And it’s free!!!
I was literally about to turn off my computer at work when I remembered that I had not scheduled anything for today. I haven’t missed a post in I don’t know how long (it’s probably not as long as I’m letting myself believe), and I’ll be damned if I miss one now.
Manuscript: Beta has officially surpassed 190,000 words, and I still have a chapter+ to write.
Happy Happy Hour!
It’s a bit of a wait and see,
A watch and be,
One grain of struggling sand,
In a stranded hourglass. Continue reading Moonlit Musing – Alcohol Cures
For those of you who are a) fans of good storytelling and b) fans of A Song of Ice and Fire and HBO’s Game of Thrones, season 7 was probably disappointing. Without ranting on about it (today), I’ll just say that it was poorly written.
Jason Concepcion of the “Binge Mode” podcast on TheRinger.com has perfectly summed up my feelings on the season, and the weight that fantasy stories carry as a whole. Continue reading Jason Concepcion on Why We Love Fantasy Stories
stars glinting in your eyes, so
we say a thousand.
Written by the legendary Jeph Loeb and illustrated by the wonderful duo of Jim Lee and Scott Williams, Hush is over 300 pages of visual stuns and twists and turns. Ever the typical avid reader, I enjoy attempting to predict the end of any story I read, and for the first time in a fair while, I was thrown by the ending here. Well. I thought I knew what was going to happen, and then I was convinced I had jumped to conclusions too swiftly, and then I was sure that I was confused about my initial correctness’s potential.

I essentially have two chapters left to write in the beta manuscript of The Warden of Everfeld: Memento. Continue reading Friday Write-Day: At the Conclusion
That lost their power
Before they were ever said.
Wish I could pretend
To feel what you deserve.
You know all the lyrics
To a song I wish I had heard
From someone else. Continue reading Misplaced Missive #95 – Sorry Songs
