Never Give Up, Never Surrender

Phew buddy*, writing has been a challenge as of late.* Buddy in the singular since only one person reads this**** Hi Mom****** “Oh G-d he’s still on the obnoxious footnotes thing” Time crunch is an issue to be sure, but the fact of the matter is I’m struggling with this WIP. As I mentioned before,Continue reading “Never Give Up, Never Surrender”

AMBUSH BLOG POST

So, back in the days* of my youthful** ambition*** I intended to keep a schedule of bi-weekly blog posts, and I still have a calendar reminder in my phone as of such. It went off today, and despite having scaled back to monthly**** posts, I decided why not.*it’s only been, like, a year or so**IContinue reading “AMBUSH BLOG POST”

Another Blog Post

Not sure how to start this, so I’m going to type ‘not sure how to start this’ and then move along. I’ve been fairly productive in the writing department recently, despite a myriad of distractions. I finished the edits on the horror novella I discussed in the last post and it’s currently being reviewed inContinue reading “Another Blog Post”

Am I Pretty Yet

Ok! Phew. Cleaned up some of the website. Still gotta work on the whole ‘Published Here‘ area, but I’ll get to that later. (Not like my attempts to promote that have worked anyways, so what’s the rush?) Also, yes, this website looks like an amateur did it for free, because, well… plot twist! An amateurContinue reading “Am I Pretty Yet”

The Ads Are Coming Back

We’re near yet another anniversary of this blog, and alas, I cannot afford to continue paying for it to not have popups and such. I sincerely apologize to my faithful readers (hi Mom!). It’s been a few years for me on this writing journey. Sometimes I get a bit down when thinking about it, howContinue reading “The Ads Are Coming Back”

Exhaustion

Per both QueryTracker.net and Manuscript Wish List, I have exhausted all possible literary agents for Capitalist Bacon. Per myself, I’m also exhausted with the whole querying process. Which isn’t new, considering I took a several month break from it at one point. But seeing the bottom of a second database’s last page inspires a newContinue reading “Exhaustion”

Holy Crap, A Whole New Post

The great Ernest Hemingway is one of my favorite old-time authors. His economical prose, his searing portraits of the human condition’s darker side, his drink recipes; they’re all things I truly enjoy. One of the biggest myths surrounding his near-legend is that he, being the alcoholic he was, drank while writing his masterpieces. This wasContinue reading “Holy Crap, A Whole New Post”

I Assure You, This Website Is Fully Operational

You just wouldn’t know it if you followed the blog. So, the good news is I’m not dead. The better news is I haven’t been blogging because I’ve been immersed in a new and exciting project (the one I teased a few times over in the past). The bad news, of course, is that theContinue reading “I Assure You, This Website Is Fully Operational”

Edits, Re-drafts, and Re-writes.

These are a few of my (least) favorite things. I will say, I hate them significantly less than I used to. I would be surprised to ever find a writer that actually enjoys this part of the process more than the initial writing/creating stage–although I’m quite certain said writer exists, somewhere–but it remains arguably anContinue reading “Edits, Re-drafts, and Re-writes.”
