Welp, I forgot to upload my title card. I blame my goofy counterpart, Jessie, with whom I video chatted last night for 5 and a half hours…
Clearly we had a lot to talk about after a busy month+ for both of us.
Curse our intriguing and impassioned conversations/arguments!

As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, I was recently interviewed for a podcast!
J. David Core, author of several mystery novels, was kind enough to sit down with me on his weekly “Thrills & Mystery” podcast. And the podcast is out!

The holidays are usually somewhat stressful for me. Just making sure I’ve find appropriate gifts for people and can get to all of the family events is more than enough to think about.
Work has been stressful this week, largely because I was trying to wrap up a lot of things before being off for a few days.
But, I am off today, and thankfully, have some time to get shit done.

Once upon the beginning of time, there was light. Beautiful, boundless light that shined in every direction, illuminating all that was and all that would ever be, to infinity. The only problem with all that illuminating was that it made it very hard to see. Continue reading Once Upon a Time… Aka a short fairytale commentary
Writing took a bit of a halt this week, but not entirely for the wrong reasons. I spent a few days talking with one of my alpha readers and going through the next phase of my manuscript — phase 2. Continue reading Friday Write-Day: When People Actually Support Your Writing

that another thought my work
worthy of sharing.
Author’s Note: My short story “Wolf’s Moon Night” is being published today on FiveOnTheFifth.com. I will post the URL as soon as I see it live!
Yes! At long last my first work is being officially published somewhere other than my own website!
And no, it’s not my book… That would be insane if that was being published all of a sudden. Are you insane? I might be. Continue reading Friday Write-Day: I’m Being Published!
It was warm under a grey sky, yet the air felt crisp. A storm had passed through in the night, lifting a heavy blanket of humidity off the city. The ground was slowly drying in the morning heat and spots of sunlight peeking through the clouds.
I was driving back from my morning class on the north campus – driving because my small two-person dorm room was on the south. As I pulled into the ever-crowded parking lot of my ten-story dorm, dozens of students strolled up and down the sidewalk heading wherever they needed to head. It was impossible to walk the campus without seeing someone who you’ve never seen before in your life, and whom you will probably never see again. I never could decide if that was proof of life’s beauty or its great tragedy; that there are people I could chance encounter every day who I will never know.

My short story has been submitted to Five on the Fifth’s contest! I read through Wolf’s Moon Night on Sunday night, making a few small changes, then again on Monday night. I finally worked up the courage to submit it on Tuesday, one day before the deadline. Submitting to a litmag — and particularly a contest — is daunting.
