At the Coffee Shop

| October 30, 2012

The first thing I did this morning–check the Internet for what Sandy’s up to. I can’t imagine what folks in the northeast are going through. Even the non-faked photos are terrifying. I hope people keep safe and the floods recede as quickly as they came. Have abandoned the abode today to work. We’ve had strange […]

Wednesday at the Coffee Shop

| October 24, 2012

I’m meeting a friend for lunch, but I came early to work. I’m plotting a series of stories, and I just don’t care for my overall theme right now.

Catch Up

| October 17, 2012

I’ve been gone for almost a month? I have reasons. There was this manuscript. It’s different than anything I’ve written before, and I’ve targeted a different publisher. I saw that this publisher was looking for submissions, and a story exploded full-blown in my head. That rarely happens to me, and even better, I didn’t have […]
