In which I explain why Audiobooks count as reading

I usually don't mind telling this story because it has a happy ending, mostly, and no it's not a romance. Well no it is a romance in a way, but it's a very untraditional romance story. It's the story of a little boy who falls in love despite being told that he will never be able to love something. The year is 1994. The location: small town (around 3000, a good number of which live in a nursing home) Kansas. A first grader struggles in school. He can't focus on the words... more

Time to Rise: A Plan Forward

For a while now I've been in a general malaise of gloom and depression. There are many factors for this but it's finally subsiding. That's a good thing because I have a lot I need to do and write and the book released in June (SOUL WIZARD: AWAKENING AVAILABLE NOW!) is just the beginning of what I have planned. I don't know how long this newfound energy and optimism is going to last because, to be honest, it could be over tomorrow. Or next year. But well it lasts, I'm... more

As they surrounded him there was a flash of blinding silver light, and the darkness fell back howling. The jeers of the little misshapen creatures were a mix of panic and... more

The Story of a Thousand Faces.

I'm not okay. I am frustrated and angry and feel my work is not being fruitful. I am tired, tired beyond what I can explain. It's not a tiredness I know how to fight. There's no enemy to fight, no one to strike out at and win points against. Normally I can be angry at myself even, to find a way to punish myself into a rage to strive forward and keep wading through the growing cesspool of bullshit that piles up from all sides on every level.

First, off you should trust me a bit more than that. This is the previous 3 posts combined into 1 ultimate post. That way you can slap one link to someone who is annoying you on twitter on how to behave better, rather than posting 3 different links. Also this will let me edit and modify this single post to... more

Why April 1st is not funny for me.

Reposting part of an earlier post because I don't have the will to write it again because my feelings haven't changed. This might be extremely difficult to read and triggering so if you want to back out now, do so, I understand, I didn't want to write it, I don't expect you to read it.3 years ago, in 2019, before the pandemic and all the other bullshit, I already had had the worst year of my life. my partner was pregnant. We were at 20 weeks, and things were going great, the... more
