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: In which I Forget What Month It Is

So January is here, guys. I feel like I was well aware of this three days ago, but some little gremlin flew in on his RC plane and took that kernel of knowledge from my brain, and I’ve just know re-remembered it.

Friday Write-Day: Vacation is almost Over!

Stay-at-home parenting is hard. Well, it’s not difficult, but it is time-consuming and frustrating.

It’s also fulfilling. These last two weeks have flown by. Things that happened a week ago already feel distant, because my days have been non-stop. Continue reading Friday Write-Day: Vacation is almost Over!

Friday Write-Day: Trying to be Patient

This has been a strange week in terms of my writing and publishing goals. While stay-at-home dad-ing, I’ve had little to no time to actually write much, but that’s not really the issue.

I find myself growing increasingly impatient with my writing and publishing progress. Consider this post my attempt to reset myself. Continue reading Friday Write-Day: Trying to be Patient

Friday Write-Day: Gearing Up to Slow Down

Man, my two-week stay-at-home-dad-cation cannot come fast enough.

Between work, the usual holiday stresses, and… mostly work, I’m really looking forward to just sitting at home with Nugget. Continue reading Friday Write-Day: Gearing Up to Slow Down

Friday Write-Day: Movement

Happy Friday. Have a YouTube:

You’re welcome. It’s been quite some time since I’ve heard new Hozier music, but maybe it’s time for a sequel to my review of his first album. That was way back in December 2014… nearly four years ago!

Aaahh, memories. Onto the writing!

Friday Write-Day: NaNo is Hard

I really can’t fathom at this point how I won NaNoWriMo in 2016. What demonic powers took hold of me then?!

I’ve enjoyed trying to keep up with NaNo this year, but man, my writing progress standards have changed.

Introduce Your Characters in their Element

Writing introductory sections is hard. I struggle to write intros to my blog posts sometimes.

Okay, a lot of times.

But I’ve picked up on one key way to introduce characters to the reader in a new story: introduce your character in their element.

Friday Write-Day: Taking Infants in Public?!

This week flew by. It’s one of those weeks where I feel like I did a lot, but I have to stop and think about it.

We brought Nugget to a craft festival outside Baltimore last Saturday. He was much beloved by many people who stopped to ask us about him. Apparently, it’s “brave” of us to take a 6-week-old in public. He mostly slept on my chest, wrapped in one of those backpack-style harnesses.
