Attention All My Readers

November is upon us.  November is NaNoWriMo, which means that I will be inspired to write a 50,000 word novel in one month.  I have participated the last two years, and I’ve had a blast each time.  Because I’m CDO, I wrote 150,000 words the first year and roughly 125,000 last year.  Maybe I’ll hit… Continue Reading

Quick Housekeeping Note

I have been asked to provide an email address so readers can contact me directly rather than comment on these pages.  To that end, I have changed my About page to my About Me/Contact Me page and added an email addy.  It’s at the top, right above the categories. Continue Reading

Uncomfortably Numb

I have many things going on right now, so why do I feel as if I’m going nowhere, and fast?  As I mentioned yesterday, I have a new blogging gig.  In addition, I have my mom’s magnum opus to type (around 250 pages), and another editing job on the backburner.  In addition, I’m blogging every… Continue Reading

Identity Politics

So. I have briefly blogged about a comment over at BJ that was directed at me by a commenter (woman, I think.  Ed. note: I think it’s a man now.  Which makes more sense as men, in general, have a more aggressive style of commenting) who was angry that I would dare mention my race… Continue Reading

Hello!  Did you miss me?  I know I missed me.  I kid, I kid, I missed y’all and blogging more than I ever thought… Continue Reading

Fuck You, California

Subtitled:  I’m taking my next vacation in Iowa. First of all, I am not a lawyer.  I don’t play one on TV, and I don’t purport to understand all the complexities of our legal system.  I wanted to get that out of the way because I want my not-so-gentle readers to be clear that what… Continue Reading

Attention K-Mart Shoppers

As I a writing this, it’s almost 11:30 p.m., Central Whatever Time.  In approximately half an hour, Script Frenzy month will start.  The goal is to write a full-length script (screenplay or an actual theatre play script) in the month.  I did it last year, and it was a blast, so I am doing it again.… Continue Reading

To All the Movies I’ve Panned Before

I don’t feel like writing new content today, so I am publishing reviews of movies that were so bad, I didn’t finish watching them.  I decided since I had to sit through at least ten minutes of each one, you should have to read a short review that should take even less time to read… Continue Reading
