Quick to Fall

I mentioned last week that I was going to give Scrivener a trial run. Well, I fell horribly in love with it instantly. I imported TIMES OF ABEL into it and organized it by part and chapter. I went through some of the notes I took at the Kelley Armstrong workshop and made a couple... Continue Reading →

Software Developer Envy

Yesterday I met up with Twisted Sister for a Brian Henry workshop in Oakville featuring Kelley Armstrong. Armstrong is a former Programmer from Ontario who has 32 published books and a couple graphic novels. As well, one of her series was adapted into a TV show. As a current software developer who is working on... Continue Reading →

Happy Thanksgiving

I spent a good portion of yesterday cooking, interspersed with a fair amount of running to the grocery store because I forgot something. Good news though, there was also a fair amount of eating. Aside from that, it's been a really slow week for me. Kid 2 was in the local Fall Fair parade with... Continue Reading →

Why Does Writing Take So Long?

The story that I mentioned working on last week is consuming my brain. Work this week was so frustrating because all I wanted to do was work on the story. As I've said before, I generally do all my writing on Sunday. Yesterday (Saturday), I spent about 5 hours working on the new story. There... Continue Reading →

I had a sleep study last night. They called me at 8:00 PM and asked if I could come in. My appointment had been scheduled for the 20th, but apparently, someone didn't show up last night so they called me. I figured it was better to get it done on a Saturday night than during... Continue Reading →


As I mentioned last week, I've been dipping my toes into Flash Fiction a little. I had written my first piece last month and thought I'd send it out. I got a pretty quick rejection on it, which was really helpful. Looking back now, it was pretty obvious that I tried to write it like... Continue Reading →

Will You Be My Friend?

The biggest problem I'm having with this new website is that it's SO easy to touch it up a little here and there and not get any writing done. What's funny is that I'm not even making it look different, I'm just finding ways to make it look the same, but in a better way... Continue Reading →

It All Comes Together

A month or so ago, I realized that while submitting query letters for my manuscript, it might be helpful to show my web presence. In 2015 when I was still in the initial stages of writing my manuscript, I finally found my "process". Up until then, I was trying to take time to write when... Continue Reading →
