This will be a long one but it's important to me so if you like you'd do well to go get yourself a cup of coffee or tea and come on back to read for a while. (BTW, somehow I ended up with a whole lot of spaces missing. Annoying to go correct all of them. Sorry to anyone who saw those before I...
As some may recall, I recently blogged about something I was trying to do and in the comments I mentioned I subsequently failed miserably. As I understand it, I had the wrong end of the stick on multiple levels and have rectified my mistakes. I hope. As I understand it, I only need ONE image...
As always, this will be a long post. I tend to save up for 'em and you can't give a blabbermouth a live mic without somebody running long. I intentionally mince no words on the fact that I fail a LOT. Okay? I'm not that guy everybody knows who can start any task and have it go according to...
In the smaller hours of the morning I often find that I get downright philosophical, so bear with me. If I don't get this out it'll be stuck with me all day and I don't need the extra load on a day like this. I'll run long, primarily because I don't even want to think about the day ahead. Join...
For the first time in my life I've experienced something that could be called "writer's block". Oddly it's not the typical "cannot write at all" variety, it's very selective. Very selective. I can still white prose works. (BTW, for the followin' items, you'll get them as they fall from my...
Long time no see and I'm sorry for that. Since I was last regularly active here, life has taken a few interesting turns. My mother's medical situation has become more... interesting. If by "interesting" one means bizarrely busy, irritatingly tiresome, and hectic, then it's been very interesting...
Which, I am sure you've learned to expect from me, will result in a longer post. Sorry about that but that's how I am. :P I will warn you, there's some dialogue included which I've had with myself.. I'm weird that way. Life is not going well. I'm now serving as full-time caregiver for a very...
The human tongue is a wondrous thing, offering sweet comfort or misery. Not knowing the difference between how stupid I have always been and how stupid I would have to be.
I was just starting to fit in too and now it's like I'm the guy who told the poot joke at a business luncheon. Oh well, life goes on and there are other clubs. Need a rewind for this little movie? It'd be a pleasure. I joined a forum for artists. After all, I intend to be one and it'd be nice...
I'm about to kick a creative hornet's nest. Watch and learn, maybe you too can learn to stick your foot in your mouth as skillfully as I. Take heed, for it can take decades to master it and even I stumble from time to time. I mean this not to offend any specific person here but totally...
Okay, so as roaring screams go, it lacked finesse. I'm working on it. I'm trying to make this drawing thing work for me. Really, I am. I log my seat time, I'm making some small progress, I learn something new every day, I'm having a miserable time, I tend to fill my spare time with scribbling...
I'm slowly coming to realize that sometimes, failure is not only an option, but a likelihood. I'm also coming to terms with the fact that I am a screwup. Everything I've done this year has ended up going bad, making this a year of failures. Right now, I'm working on a new project. It's going to...
Well, this may not be easy, lol. I'll try to be brief. Over the past few weeks I've had some difficulties in my life. The most prominent of the "signs" being that my mood, attitude, and verbal filter have been out of whack. I've been having some serious pain over the past week and a half, and...
(This is more a mental dump, the first in quite a while. If it makes no sense, it's my problem rather than yours, lol.) I've discovered that being ceaselessly creative has many pitfalls. It feels a little too... "cat lady" to merely churn out item after item after item and keep it to myself...
Crimson flows from my soul the ragged hole open still This thing stepped between us parting us against our will A better man wouldn't hurt a worthy one would endure I value myself worthless for I know of but one cure I cannot kiss your skin knowing I'll find his taste I cannot enjoy your...
Back when I was too young to realize how dumb I was, I threw away college money to attend a trade school. Back then, college was where rich kids went, and I believed that the world was built by people who built things. I was partially correct, but I didn't know my health was going to tank. My...
I've realized something. When I get up in the morning, I get out of bed. The first sound I hear besides the radio that plays while I sleep is my left knee. It crackles. When I was a kid I screwed it up riding a bicycle and it crackles until it loosens up. 99% of my injuries were untreated...
As I mentioned in another post, I've started a novel. Things are not going so well in that novel, and that's an understatement. Somehow, I've forgotten how to write. Hell, I'm not so sure I ever knew how the way it's been the last few days. The concept is good. Any writer worth calling a...
Four long boring years ago, I did what I dreamed I would do. I wrote the crappiest and most unreadable piece of puke on paper, and I called it my masterpiece. I wrote a novel. I didn't know that westerns didn't sell, and I didn't give a damn because I'd written a novel. I self-published and lost...
This post has been written and rewritten 122 times. Seriously folks, do you have any idea how many files it takes to compile 9.35 Megabytes just in documents? That's a lot of material. So, what have I decided? The subject matter being what it is, I've opted for the cowardly route. :) The...
