Perspective can be one of the most important aspects of writing an in-depth, detailed narrative, especially when world building is a big part of your writing.
World building is the reason I
So, that means sometimes I want to write about the story underneath the plot–the cultural or historical context, even if it just pertains to one character’s arc.

We have reached another month, and that means that, on this first Friday, it’s time for a writing update.
Notice the new title card? I kind of like the idea of switching up the photo each month, as a sort of thematic gesture.
Continue reading March Write-Day: The New Routine is Up and Running
February has been
an up-an-down month, if you hadn’t already guessed, and it’s this kind of sudden change (“Life Events”, as your friendly HR department refers to them) that can throw any decent writing routine completely off course.
Finally, however, I think I’ve found a way to keep writing during this vaguely temporary period of unemployment.
Continue reading A Writing Routine Requires A Life Routine
In my last Friday Write-Day post two weeks ago, I mentioned how I might change up the format of this once-weekly post to both challenge myself and provide some more unique content on RSPC.
I thought about a bi-weekly update for about a minute, until I realized that nothing outside of paychecks are scheduled fortnightly, and scheduling my blog in that manner would be ridiculous.
So now it’s monthly. On the first Friday of each month, I’ll update ya’ll on my writing progress from the previous month and talk about my goals for the new month. I’ll have a new title card for this monthly series next month.

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.
Continue reading Friday Write-Day: Vacation is almost Over!
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.

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.

This week has gone by pretty fast, but I’ve been looking ahead a lot.
Still, I managed to reach my highest word count written since the summer.
