Friday Write-Day: A Taste of a New Routine

This week has been interesting, if a little off-center. My mom has been babysitting Nugget all week. She lives in my hometown, which is just about equidistant between my house and my office. My wife’s place of work is int he complete opposite direction.

So guess who’s been dropping off and picking up Nugget every day? Continue reading Friday Write-Day: A Taste of a New Routine

Friday Write-Day: Moral Victories?

Sometimes, the tangible goals don’t matter as much as the intangible. For instance, Nugget can lift his head up and hold it steady for a few seconds without teetering over like a top-heavy paper weight. That seems like a big accomplishment for a five-week-old!

As you might have guessed, I couldn’t write that much this week, but I did manage to make some moves in cool/interesting directions.

Song Share And Action Update!

Why hello there, reader! It’s been a bit since I held myself accountable and told you what I’m up to, thus: this.

To start, a bit of background music to enjoy whilst you read:

That’s better, now isn’t it? I think so too. And hey, if you stumble upon some extra time later and are Johnny Cash fans, check out Forever Words, both an album and a book devoted to the legend’s unpublished writing.  Continue reading Song Share And Action Update!

Miracles: New Endeavors for the New Year

Howdy all,

So I’ve always considered myself a ‘writer’ more than an artist, or a poet, or a novelist, or any other such distinction. Recently, that writing has taken the shape of a book type thing instead of a poem type thing. This is interesting to me. And also kind of soul consuming; I don’t seem capable of focusing on much else. Continue reading Miracles: New Endeavors for the New Year

Audiobooks and Critical Listening: Shockwave by John Sandford

Do audiobooks count for my Goodreads reading goal? I feel like they should.

Future Father-in-law gave me a few audiobooks on CD for Christmas this year, and it took me a while to pop one into my car’s stereo. I was hesitant about this for a couple of reasons: Continue reading Audiobooks and Critical Listening: Shockwave by John Sandford

Forming Habits and February Goals

Goals are hard, especially when you don’t meet them. Mainly, I fell short of my January writing goal of 20,000 words on “Jaed and Aston”. The bad news is that I only wrote 10,000 words. The good news is that I freaking wrote 10,000 words. Continue reading Forming Habits and February Goals

Monthly and Yearly Goals: January 2016

Happy New Year!

It’s 2016 now. I think the whole New Year’s Resolution thing is a tad overblown. That sentiment is obviously shared by my distant friend on the other side of this website. Still, I like setting goals for myself. It’s a challenge. And I’ve recently started publicizing my writing goals because I feel like I need to be held accountable to… whoever you are. So here are my goals for this month, as well as for 2016 in total. Continue reading Monthly and Yearly Goals: January 2016
