Modifications

I just finished installing WordPress 5.0 and I’m getting used to the new editing features. So far it seems reasonable enough, although I have to wonder why they’re leaving three inches of white space to the left and right of the editing “blocks” (and I won’t even get started on this idea of blocks instead…

Redesigns

Lots of good stuff happening right now, so let’s jump right into it. This morning I checked the Andromeda Spaceways facebook page (even though my Facebook account was closed months ago, I can still view their public posts). I found the following recent post which, I have to admit, honestly choked me up: That’s my…

November, 2018, Report

Ah, November. You have been both cruel and a delight. The cruelness comes from two fronts: the house is hating us right now and springing leaks from every pipe; and Netflix/Marvel are canceling my favorite shows. Granted, the former is more important than the latter, entertainment is just… entertainment. There are plenty more sources of…

On Becoming a Published Author

It’s been a really long time coming. A long time writing, then a long time not writing because I wasn’t ready to hack the up and down of rejection. A lot of words poured onto the page, a lot of “thanks but no thanks,” a lot of doubting why I was getting up so early…

When I was a kid, I used to deliver the Sunday paper. Having a paper route was a sort of rite of passage for kids back then, although I think most of them are now managed by older individuals with cars looking for a second source of income. I didn’t like getting up so early…

October, 2018, Report

I didn’t blog much in October it seems. Or at all. Well, that’s fine, no one actually reads these things. I write them because I want to, not because I have an audience or a platform. That means that until I have at least a small number of the former, these will remain irregular and…

The First (Review)

I’d heard some rumors of good things coming out of the new series, The First, which is now streaming on Hulu. I’ve found most Hulu original series to be pretty decent (we’ve enjoyed Castle Rock and The Handmaid’s Tale, although the latter is so full of existential dread that at times we struggle to get…
