We're in the second half of the year, and now would be an excellent time to review my progress on my New Year's Resolutions. I'm not going to do that, though; I know I've done a terrible job with what I aimed to do in 2018 and I know why. So July is going to … Continue reading (Personal) A Writer’s Almanac: July 2018
So the last two weeks haven't been very good for me, focus wise. For the third week in a row, I haven't posted a new part to the Jackalope Serial Company -- something that I set out wanting to avoid at all costs. My story for People of Colo(u)r Destroy Science Fiction is practically dead … Continue reading (Personal) In The Weeds
Last Thursday I celebrated my 35th birthday. If I'm lucky, this puts me squarely in the territory of early middle age. That means that for the most part, I'm starting to have fewer days ahead of me than there are behind. It's a sobering thought, but not a depressing one.

And I've been trying to develop a good running practice for a little over seven years now -- first by regular trips on the treadmill and then by carving out good routes around the burrow.

I'm sure that whatever you could come up with would be better than what … Continue reading The State of the Rabbit – April 2013
At the beginning of this month, I set a pretty ambitious set of goals for myself. I had planned to write or rewrite five short stories -- two stories for friends to try out a commission scheme I had dreamed up, and a rewrite of three 'fluff' short stories that I felt I could do … Continue reading January 2013 Goals: How Did I Do?
I took a bit of planned time off in November. I have a number of good projects I could be working on, but I thought it would be a good time to close out the end of the year working on fundamentals. I'd like to develop a consistent writing practice, where I'm at least banging … Continue reading Writing Plan for December 2012
It's been tough to write about self-improvement these past few years, largely because I've moved out of the contemplative phase of it. Through a great deal of my 20s I was still figuring things out -- what it means to be a good person, the fundamental nature of humanity, how society works and how it … Continue reading Who I Am is What I Do
