Accomplished Today (So Far): Two pages, longhand, print. I took a notebook along and did some writing at the local McDonald’s. I continued at the local movie theater while waiting to see G.I. Joe: Retaliation. I was on a tear. It annoyed me when the house lights faded and I couldn’t keep filling the pages […]


Brain Drain

29Mar13

I accomplished almost nothing today, other than working on a podcast related to a cartoon aimed at six year old girls. My brain is a lump of tapioca. I have the dumb. I derailed my own plans by watching Seven Psychopaths in the middle of the day, the new-ish film by Martin McDonagh, the director […]


Accomplished Today (So Far): One page via electric typewriter; one page via manual. I wrote more about the magical complaint department, and started another short humorous tale involving the incompetent Inquisitor, Witchfinder Malthus. I like writing about him, but he’s a bit of a one-note joke. Thoughts: I’ve been reading spoilers related to a recent, […]

This is the desk in my bedroom, newly rearranged for optimum writing / reading efficiency. On the left is my Royal Safari with the bent carriage return that causes it to skip spaces intermittently; in the middle is […]


Mood: Nervous. I’ve a deadline looming on Monday and I still haven’t made the time to watch the film I need to review. I’ll knock it out tomorrow, I hope. I was planning to work on it today, but I fell down a Facebook hole and had a dental apppointment in the late afternoon, and […]


Comma Drama

Accomplished Today (So far): One 650 word anime review article for publication in Otaku USA magazine, submitted prior to deadline. I prefer to get my work turned in early, when I can. I also spent a good chunk of time editing podcasts. Writing Relevant Article: The Best Shots Fired in the Oxford Comma Wars, by Arika […]
