Positive Feedback Quite a few changes and updates to my active works, but I'd like to start off by thanking a couple book bloggers for their amazing reviews of Kludged Singularity. Clive at Whispering Stories and Ellie at Bookish Beyond were both gracious enough to put considerable time and effort into their reviews. I'd like … Continue reading Positive Feedback and Mobile Goalposts

Kludged Singularity Launch Imminent
I completed the first draft of the novel about a week or so back, but I've been too busy with life and revisions to throw out an update post until now. I'm very excited to have the story done and out of my head so I can focus on getting it ready for launch. Right … Continue reading Kludged Singularity Launch Imminent
Novel Named: Kludged Singularity
As expected, writing over the last month had sped up significantly as I get to knock over all the things I'd been setting up in the preceding chapters. It looks like my 80,000 word estimate is a little low, I think I have more than 7,000 words of story left to pour into this draft … Continue reading Novel Named: Kludged Singularity
The problem with over-engineering the technology in your home is that when you move it takes forever to remember how everything was supposed to work together. In July I tore down my various desktop computers, purged any old tech that wasn't worth packing, and drove out to Denver's high altitude and dry air to escape … Continue reading Technically Moved

Space Freight – For the Haul
For almost a decade I’ve carried around a compact Apple Bluetooth keyboard wherever I went alongside an original iPad. My original iPad still works, believe it or not, and there are a few small niches it still fills, but I replaced it earlier this year with an old model iPad Air so I could run … Continue reading On Keyboards
Excerpt: Pine St.
I did say previously that I was going to post an excerpt from my current draft to celebrate the halfway point, and here it is. I grabbed a scene from early in the book that was relatively benign so far as spoilers go. It's going to be several months at least before I'm done and … Continue reading Excerpt: Pine St.
First Novel Word Count Milestone – Halfway Point
When I first started writing this novel in earnest I assumed, without really thinking, that I could bang the whole thing out in 50,000 words. That seemed like enough room to tell a story, and it was conveniently short enough that I felt it was achievable. It also happens to be the National Novel Writing … Continue reading First Novel Word Count Milestone – Halfway Point
