Why is the Weekend Over? I Wasn’t Done With It.

November 12, 2012 by


Me: Could we please add an extra day to the week? We could call it Rocketday. Or Napday. Rick: Why not both? Part of the weekend right? Me: Second weekend! Like, after Tuesday: Rocketday and Napday. Then Wednesday. So my new phone arrived on Friday. His name is Marco (say hi everyone). I am still […]

A Certain Predilection For Getting Dragons Drunk

November 9, 2012 by


Okay, so recently I’ve noticed that there are certain… similarities between the two series’ I’m writing. Not in story or character but some of the underlying ideas are the same. Fundamentally, this is not surprising. An author’s obsessions tend find their way onto the page somehow. And my doctorate — if it achieved nothing else […]

Sick Days Are a Sign That You Need More Weekend

April 30, 2012 by


I think that if you’re sick on a weekend you should get a pass and be allowed an extra weekend day. Also, I think there should be a way so that my job properly includes sick days instead of them just being the-book-will-now-take-this-much-longer-to-finish days. Although sometimes I still do write when I’m sick. Sometimes it’s […]

Getting Drunk and Losing Sleep Are Good For Creativity?

Arkem: Is Pan doing better after the transplant? Me: He is feeling so much better. At least I think he is. Right now he thinks he’s Bob. But we’re working on that. Arkem: We’re all a little groggy after surgery. Me: Yeah, hopefully he will be fine by tonight. Or tomorrow anyway. Which will be […]

This is an Unreasonable Extrapolation Given the Evidence

February 23, 2012 by


Raven: How goes? Me: I am writing extremely clever words. Well, funny words. Well, they’re making me laugh. Although I haven’t slept a lot lately, so. Yeah. Turns out if you write things in your sleep and then forget about them you get the opportunity to read your own work as if someone else has […]

Don’t Try to Prove You’re Not Drunk

February 13, 2012 by


Last week I started running through and editing the first few chapters of Wizards. Just a little. Just to make sure where I started and what I think I’m writing are actually the same thing. So far the editing has mostly been me thinking, He needs to be more drunk. Which of course makes me […]

I Am a Drinker with Writing Problems

January 16, 2012 by


Whenever I post something on WordPress lately it tosses a quote at me along with a remark about how it thinks I’m doing, how long the post was and some pointed comments about how it would really like to be linked to every social networking site ever. I assume it does this to everyone, that […]

This is What Language Tastes Like

December 28, 2011 by


There’s a school of thought that suggests that the reason creative types are so known for being mad, drunk or junkies is because in some metaphysical way the crazy, the alcohol and the drugs are being translated into brilliance. People being what they are, it’s not terribly surprising that someone wondered if you could make […]
