5am

“Hey, Paul, it’s 5am!” “No it’s not.” “It so is. You know what we should do?” “Curl up and fall asleep in the warmth of my blankets?” “No, silly. We should think. We should think about everything. Have anything you’re feeling unhappy with?” “I… Continue Reading “5am”

A New Story Begins

It feels so good. I feel like a new man now that the novel is out of my hands. Of course, I still have the “And again!” mentality, but hey, that’s life. And my publisher hasn’t said anything about the ms getting to them.… Continue Reading “A New Story Begins”

Final Edit

Sixty. It blinked. It read. It said sixty. Sure there were notes of things to fix, but it would take an hour tops. Those sixty pages. I looked up, bags under my eyes. I grimaced. “I can do it.” My lips were swollen and… Continue Reading “Final Edit”

Bad Romance

I cannot write children’s books

We all know the “When I retire I’ll become a writer,” sort. The “It can’t be that hard” type. But then there’s the realist. They want to get into writing, but it’s harrowing, like sailing upon the black seas of some Lovecraft poem. I… Continue Reading “I cannot write children’s books”

One Third

Who is a third done with edits?! This bastard! Ugh. It’s felt good editing so much in the past few days and getting down a routine. It’s interrupted now and then (I’m just getting to editing, but figured I’d warm up through a little… Continue Reading “One Third”
