How’d you like to get off your longboat and be staring down the barrel of one of these bad boys?

Brief Update


The ripping and clipping continue. The current plan is to expand Tears of the Robot into a two-hour long panel; there’s a glut of material. Smoke and Mirrorshades will be one hour long. Still trying to decide what my other panels will involve. I’m leaning toward another hour-length panel plus a live-commentary of some kind, […]



I spent all day ripping video clips and collecting artwork. I’m building panels for Florida Anime Experience 2013. Currently, I’m working on a panel entitled Tears of the Robot: Anime Edition and another called Smoke and Mirrorshades: Cyberpunk in Anime. I’ll need at least two more panels to fulfill my obligations as a guest. This is […]

Accomplished Today (So Far): Three pages on the electric typewriter. Two pages on the manual. Four pages of transcription. I began a new story about a man who finds himself utterly alone and imprisoned in a well-furnished castle. It’s shaping into an allegory for the artistic process, which can be frighteningly lonely at times. I also continued […]

Accomplished Today (So Far): One Vault of Error article. I also did some editing, but it was my sister’s birthday today and she visited with her infant sons in tow. It’s hard to focus on literary efforts when there are babies demanding constant attention.



No writing so far today. I completed a big chunk of podcast-related editing. I also applied for a teaching job and made some positive business decisions which I can describe in more detail after the contracts are finalized. My brother is visiting from Texas. I showed him my workspace and the progress on Skin Crawling […]



Accomplished Today (So Far): Two pages, handwritten, cursive. Two pages on the manual typewriter. Continued the adventures of Harry Hominid and the band of low-class adventurers mentioned in yesterday’s post. The sequel to Fat Wizard’s Almanac now has the working title of No Good Deed. I want to do some writing with a fountain tip […]

Accomplished Today (So Far): Three pages, handwritten, cursive. My pens are running out of ink. I began another humorous fantasy story in which the heroes are an adventuring party comprised of dumb, greedy, maladjusted thugs. Needless to say, these guys are based largely on the worst examples of what I’ve seen in my decades long love-hate affair with […]

Serious Mode


Accomplished Today (So Far): Two pages on the electric typewriter; one page manual on the Rocket, one page manual on the Safari; two pages longhand, print, using a disposable fountainhead pen; two pages of transcription. Not bad for a day dedicated to some serious writing. I wrote about a hyper-advanced mobile battle platform controlled by […]



Accomplished Today (So Far): Three pages on the manual typewriter; two pages longhand, print. I continued my story about the private investigator operating in a modern world that humans share with their sapient dinosaur compatriots, and I started another story involving Harry Hominid, an inept turn-of-the-century adventurer with a Munchhausen-esque habit of exaggerating his exploits. I plan on writing more during the evening, […]
