Of Cats in Peril and Sausage Of Cats in Peril and Sausage

This blog is about a cat… or maybe it’s cats. It’s also about how the sausage is made. Make of those two metaphors whatever you wish. I just turned in the manuscript for my first novel in the Eldros Legacy. It’s called Seeds of Dominion, which is the first installment of my series The Legacy of Deceit. I’m not going

The Sea of Storms The Sea of Storms

The vast ocean loomed off the ship’s port side as they sailed close to the shore. Dark clouds swirled in the distance. Flashes of lightning illuminated the mass, popping high and low. A seaman leaned close to be heard over the wind. “The Sea of Storms is lively today,” he said to me. “Why is it called the Sea of

Fall Has Fallen and Movies Are Back Fall Has Fallen and Movies Are Back

I have two things of note this morning. The first and most basic is that, for the first time since Spring, I’m wearing a lousy sweatshirt out in the workshop where I do my writing. This is not good news. This means that my old friend Summer is fading, and that cold, damp cretin Fall is coming around for another

Adding Definition to Characters and Plot Through Short Stories Adding Definition to Characters and Plot Through Short Stories

I Just wrapped a short story that will be published by New Mythology Press this fall. The process for this particular story really stands out for me. Since creating the realms on Pyranon, my imagination skips from character to character and to their places with in the different stories taking place at the same time. I’m no George Martin, for

The Time Between Projects The Time Between Projects

I suppose I should clarify that headline. For, I suspect, most professional writers, the definition of projects has different meanings. For some, every writing deliverable is a project. For others, like myself, novels are pretty much all I consider to be my writing projects. Short stories and novelettes aren’t projects, they’re jobs. Right now, I find myself between the projects Paladin’s Light

Motorcycles and Elitism Motorcycles and Elitism

For those who don’t know, I’m a rabid motorcycle enthusiast. I’ve been riding for over thirty years and have ridden just about every class of bike there is. Street bikes, cruisers, sport bikes, sport touring, touring, off-road, and a few in-betweens as well. I’ve ridden V-twins (inline and cross-mounted), inline threes and fours. I’ve ridden two, three, and four-wheelers. I

Rob’s Ramblings: Armistice AAR Rob’s Ramblings: Armistice AAR

Greetings all I am home safely from a fantastic trip to Armistice. I’m so glad I went. For those who aren’t aware, Armistice was a replacement event for the largest SCA event around, Pennsic. It was held at the same site as Pennsic, Cooper’s Lake Campground in Slippery Rock, PA. There were about 1450 attendees where Pennsic has about 10,000.

Checking Boxes Checking Boxes

I always feel better if I can check at least one box during the day. by checking a box, I mean, check off an item on a to-do list. I guess it’s just my personality type. I can’t not check off a box. I am productivity-driven. I love me a solid spreadsheet. And I love to check boxes. Today the

Quotables – Perseverance Quotables – Perseverance

I run. Or rather, I like to say that I run, but I probably jog. I have running shorts, running shirts, and running shoes. But I jog. There’s probably a speed threshold between jogging and running, and I’m pretty sure I’ve fallen beneath the required minutes-per-mile. I used to run. Once I could sustain nearly an eight-min-mile average over five
