I may delete this post

I just wrote a paragraph of this post and then deleted it. Not surprising. I may still keep deleting. It’s funny sad how I dislike my writing, usually. So rarely satisfied with anything that I write, which, I guess, is pretty much the norm for anyone who cares about being a writer. I lack originality…

The Goblin Road e-book Now Only 99 Cents!

Who knew that you could squash the vile hopes of dark-hearted pixies at the same time as you entertain yourself reading The Goblin Road, now with the cost of a measly 99 cents?(I did, actually, but I don’t want to come off as a know-it all, so I won’t say this aloud. Parentheses, after all,…

Writing and Being Deaf

There is absolutely nothing to prevent deaf folks, whether culturally deaf and using ASL or not, from becoming writers. We can write. We can throw down poems from our minds on paper. We can shape the stories in our minds into the written word. We can also do this in ASL, but I ask: why…

Coffee is my vice, how about yours?

In a few minutes, I plan to open the rough draft of my sequel to The Goblin Road. I suspect that after 4 months of not writing a single word in there, that it’ll look somewhat foreign. So I surround myself with the pleasant atmosphere of a coffeehouse, and I arm myself with a medium…

Shall We Write?

You and I? Shall we write? One word after another until something interesting is born onto the web, a screaming literary baby? Or, abandoning the net for more sheltered writing, shall we work on rough drafts of our too-big, too-small projects? The time might be near for me. The sequel isn’t dead, merely sleeping.
