Planning a plan

That’s all I can stands, I can’t stands no more. — Popeye, the circumnavigational heteronormative male Some time ago, at the urging of friends and family, I began seeking disability support through Social Security, after years and years of trying to make it on my own. Whenever I failed to make progress, it was like […]

Elf Hero, Chapter 1, revised

Completely not in keeping with the spirit of Nanowrimo, I’ve revised the initial faerie gate sequence somewhat. At the moment I’m not even serializing this so much as giving you an update as part of a status report. Most notably, I’ve expanded the sprite’s role. I’m also trying to loosen up, get some self-confidence back, […]

Section 8 deflate

Our Section 8 meeting was a disaster. We woke up to ice and snow, which would have been bad enough if we had a car, but we had to walk. However, our front door is badly warped this time of year every year, so that it can only be closed from the inside — so […]

Elf onomatology

If memory serves, Bilbo gets knocked out cold at a critical point in the children’s book, so the kiddies don’t have to experience all the gory details of war first-hand. When Bilbo awakes […]

Elf Hero, first chapters

Nanowrimo this month seemed like a good excuse to shove myself forward on that Elf Life book I keep trying to write, but never do. Going over some familiar material for me is helpful, because I’m getting better (I think) at putting the different bits together to form a more coherent novel. I hope. In […]

Section 8

This month is not going as planned. Well, that’s not really the right word. Not going as hoped. For a time it seemed (quick review) that I was finally going to get approved for disability help, when the bureaucracy backed up and ran over me. OK, maybe a tad hyperbolic. Anyway, I had decided to […]

Save the cat

Been sort of stuck on moving on any writing project, because I can’t seem to write anything that creates much interest. My science fiction comedy falls flat, and attempts to reset my old webcomic in fiction form also leaves people cold (I mean, as far as I can tell). So I’ve been searching for ideas […]
