I’m Back

This site has been down for months, but I am back. It’s been a year of health issues, surgeries, recoveries and distressing world events that kept me from prioritizing online visibility. But with the second surgery now behind me and the advent of spring, I am happy to report having the energy and motivation once again to be here. All… Read more →

Because I’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback on them, it… Read more →

Finally got this the way I wanted it around the end of the first week of NaNoWriMo. As for the book itself, I’m still not sure about my title, “Plasticity.” I like it and it fits the subject matter,… Read more →

Day 6 – 30 Nano Post-Mortem

The thing I’m most proud of after successfully finishing NaNoWriMo is that I made no foolish pledge to blog everyday during the month. The first five days I wanted to. It was a good feeling to complete my main course and then finish off with a little blogging dessert. But after day five, the novel filled me up. I got… Read more →
