Time for an Update

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 01:36:18 +0000

Time for an update. I dropped in the feed from my Twitter account in the right-hand column since most of my online writing is short tweets rather than substantive, or at least longer than 280 characters, blog posts. Editing the novel is still a work in progress. I reached the half-way point this weekend. On … Continue reading Time for an Update

Persistently Persisting

Sun, 04 Feb 2018 16:54:35 +0000

I forget how much the beginning the semester can sap my energy. Rejuvenated over winter break I foresaw much busy-ness when it came to creative work and blogging. Alas, that is not the case. THE NOVEL I continue editing the novel. I will eventually go through the whole thing multiple times. I’m currently one sixth … Continue reading Persistently Persisting

First Story of 2018 Submitted

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 02:44:24 +0000

WRITING This year I decided to change tack when submitting stories. Instead of writing stories and then looking for a market, I study a particular market and write a story for them. My first deadline was Monday. I wrote the story (“Funeral Champagne”) the first part of January, edited it over the weekend, and sent … Continue reading First Story of 2018 Submitted

Writing Update and Crafting Story Ideas

Tue, 09 Jan 2018 20:01:17 +0000

At the end of 2017 I organized all the sections of my novel, put them in order, then printed out the whole novel. Then I typed up and printed out all the accompanying notes. I did a run-through on my initial editing process to make sure it would work, then I put the whole thing … Continue reading Writing Update and Crafting Story Ideas

Starting the New Year with a Vacation

Thu, 04 Jan 2018 00:09:38 +0000

To get 2018 started off right I went to Key West. Even this far south it’s blustery, drizzly, and overcast. Here’s me and the missus out on a cold(ish) blustery drizzly day in paradise. 2018 can wait until this weekend.

Bustling Folly

Mon, 01 Jan 2018 19:49:56 +0000

To start off the new year I’ve re-designed the blog and renamed it. This year’s blog title is Bustling Folly. “Bustling folly is the character of our species: people hastily set off on the path of the good, but do not persevere steadfastly upon it; indeed, in order to avoid being bound to a single … Continue reading Bustling Folly

2018 Resolutions

Mon, 01 Jan 2018 19:13:02 +0000

Fresh beginnings. I love them. I am that weirdo that loves Mondays, because with a new beginning everything seems possible. I don’t love January 1 and Mondays because I’m optimistic, or because I think everything is going to be OK. I don’t. I like them because they are cues, opportunities to re-focus my attention and … Continue reading 2018 Resolutions

That’s a Wrap for 2017

Fri, 29 Dec 2017 17:10:02 +0000

2017 sucked and 2018 doesn’t look much brighter. This blog, (formerly known as) Balderdash and the Moon, started as a way for me to sort my thinking/feeling about Our Current Situation. By the end of the April I’d stopped writing about politics at all, and the hot takes were all served liquid nitrogen cold. The … Continue reading That’s a Wrap for 2017

December’s Full Moon Story – The Drowning Giant

Mon, 04 Dec 2017 19:44:16 +0000

(UPDATE: The full moon story series was only available in 2017. All stories posted in 2017 have been taken down.) In December we have a supermoon! If you saw the full moon last night it probably looked closer, bigger, and brighter than usual. This month’s full moon story is an attempt to take a myth … Continue reading December’s Full Moon Story – The Drowning Giant

It worked! I needed a push to finish a project started at the beginning of the year. Coincidentally, I needed about 50,000 words to complete the project, and NaNoWriMo requires 50,000 words to claim victory. It worked. I finished. And for this brief moment I am a winner. Yay, winning! I’ve completed the first draft, … Continue reading Annnnnd….done
