Hey, look at that, a 0600 post. Strange, no? Well, you can think of this little scheduling thingy they have for future posts, or believe that I really am awake early in the morning typing this, sans Starbucks. Your call. I just finished the David Tennant seasons of Doctor Who and am now on to the Matt … Continue reading Jason’s Doctor Who Love Fest Continues
Yesterday was weird. I got home, and the next thing I knew it was time to go back to work. I did literally nothing yesterday. No writing. No creating. No editing. No painting. No eating. I don't think I'm sick. But I did miss my word count goal as a result, which has set me back about … Continue reading Overcommitted Is A Word
...and across the land did the faithful lament. I am, of course, talking about the city of Lexington's attitude about losing to Louisville in basketball. They lose to them all the time in football (it's a Kentucky thing, belonging in the SEC and not giving a rat's ass about football), which is no big deal. … Continue reading Woe Betide
The Preditors & Editors voting poll has opened and, as usual, people are having a hard time getting the pages to open. It's almost like an 8th grade test website built in the 90's. For someone who claims to have been involved with the first internet service provider, his internet providing seems to, well, suck. I … Continue reading Lookout 2013!
I've seen this going around other blogs but didn't really pay too much attention to it until I was tagged by Barb Caffrey (hey Barb). Barb recently inked a deal for her novel, Elfy, with one of the publishers I've written for (Twilight Times Books). We're also working on a steampunk/alt history story (I think that's … Continue reading The Next Big Thing
I love it when a bunch of books I can't wait to read are all released at the same time. You can literally see my writing come screeching to a halt. In two days I've purchased and finished Jim Butcher's Cold Days, his latest in the Dresden Files, and Kevin Hearne's fifth book of his Iron … Continue reading Reading + Writer = Slacker!
Before I start this, let me first say that I am a huge J. J. Abrams fan. I loved what he did with Star Trek, and Lost wasn't too bad (except for the ending). Super 8 was very entertaining and I really do enjoy most of what he produces. But damn it all to hell, what the hell … Continue reading 15* Rules to Surviving the Abrams Dystopia
I'm still recovering from my turkey coma, so bear with me here. I was on my way to work and saw, well, mayhem is the only way I can describe it. You see, I live near a big mall and Target and Walmart (they're not close to one another, until you take into account I … Continue reading Black Friday Mayhem
Good news on the war front: sold another short story this week. Wake, a dark, creepy horror story with a bit of a humorous bent, is going to see print sometime in 2013. I'm still waiting on official word, but I have a hard "yes" from them, which is nice to have. This is good … Continue reading Good News
So yesterday, I saw that once more has Facebook taken our privacy settings and screwed them over, leaving all the personal information out there for any intrepid individual (or company) to find. Although I willingly signed up for Facebook, I was smart and didn't post too much personal information in there. I tried to use … Continue reading Facebook Over
I hope you exercised your right to vote today. I'm going "offline" this Thursday for five days, lasting until Tuesday-ish. I'll be around, but the blog will suffer, since I'm going to be "offline". Yes, I quoted that on purpose. I'll be looking in but not participating. Though to be fair, that's about all I … Continue reading Vote Today
Wow, what a crazy week. Shot multiple scenes for Acts of God out in Louisville. Got to watch them blow stuff up (which was freaking cool), got into a firefight with Taliban (or the Hollywood equivalent... I think they're called "fellow extras"), got a speaking part in the movie (which may or may not be cut, I'll find … Continue reading Are You Writing?
Okay, so I'm prepared to hear about NaNoWriMo for the next 30 days from all writers, established pros and aspiring ones alike. I literally have created a folder in my inbox to hear about how well people are doing, purely for selfish reasons (I like the idea of shooting someone an email on the 16th … Continue reading November Begins
I want to buy a house. Wait, hear me out. I have sound reasoning for this desire. I've been surfing around the web researching a story and came across an unfinished basement and the pictures that the guy took. He then showed the step-by-step process of turning his unfinished basement into the ultimate nerd man … Continue reading Nerd King
I officially have a minor quibble with the film making process now. Why can't they get military movies right? The military operates the same as a set does: hurry up and wait. "Everyone get in position. Okay, now wait! The sun's not right! Move the scrim! Wait! Props need to be passed out. Okay, now … Continue reading Awesomer
