Canine Comparisons

Sun, 16 Apr 2017 15:33:30 +0000

It is amazing how much bigger they are in your head. Quinn is now the age Joella was when we got her. And in my mind, Quinn is much smaller than Jo. Jo was bigger, taller, goofier in her long-legged adolescence. So I went digging through my plethora of saved images and found a handful …



Wixing Mords

Sun, 09 Apr 2017 04:28:10 +0000

(this post was supposed to appear a few days ago but there were…issues.) I don’t know the trigger for it when I can’t speak worth beans. Words come out in a jumble, out of order, misspelled, and, most often, the wrong words altogether. Sometimes the wrong word and the right word are close sounding. Like …



Temporary Site Problem

Sat, 18 Mar 2017 06:31:44 +0000

Seems as though some one managed to get past stuff and “infect” this website and one other (not really a virus type of thing, just injection of some crap). I *think* I have found the cause. Until then, the themes may be jumping around and looking weird until I find one I like again. Dagnabbit. …



Precognition or Just Bad Luck?

Wed, 09 Nov 2016 01:12:34 +0000

To Sleep was a hard book to write. It started out in one direction then the logistics of it (a reader can only suspend so much belief before the book becomes airborne) got too tangled. I set it aside for a year or more then tried again, this time going in a different direction. But …



Shutting Down Cortana

Sat, 01 Oct 2016 02:47:09 +0000

I don’t like Cortana. Don’t want it. Didn’t ask for it. I find the entire thing not just a waste of resources on my already choked computer, but an invasion of my privacy. If you want to turn the dang thing off though, ha. Microsoft took care of the “off” switch a long time ago. …



Writing the Disabled Character, Part 1

Sat, 27 Aug 2016 05:53:48 +0000

Here I am using the term “disabled” loosely. This can mean anything from quadriplegia to asthma. If an illness/condition is as much a part of their character sketch as their humor, then consider them a “disabled character”. There’s lots of things to keep in mind but right now I want to focus on medication. Some …



Back It Up

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 01:21:04 +0000

I’ve talked about this before. Lectured on it. Gonna do it again ’cause it’s been a while. Back up your work, back up your work, back up your work. In as many places as possible in as many ways as you can think of. Some you do every day to catch ever new word, phrase, …
