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?

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.

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.

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.

Welp, November is over. National Novel Writing Month sped by me, but that’s been true of every month since my son was born.
I had a lofty goal of writing 20,000 words on Dad-Life Time, but NaNoWriMo goals are always lofty, right?
Anyway, it’s time I rethink how I approach my writing schedule and goals.

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!

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.

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