Cheating on my Reading List

I’m looking at my reading list right now, wondering if it is going to leave me or demand that it be taken off my website. Sincerely, I wouldn’t blame it. I have strayed so far from my goal of reading a particular kind of literature, that now I find myself in the bushes and trees…

Imagination

About 2 years ago, I heard of a project that was being started by sci-fi writer, Neal Gaiman. The idea was to have conversations that would inspire sci-fi writers to write less dystopian novels and focus on imagining the kind of World we would like to live in. A book was released, a continuing conversation…

Rewriting

Today I’m doing some rewriting, so I have to bend my head down and concentrate. But wanted to think aloud for a minute. I’m passionate about speculative fiction. I want to know about things I could not have imagined on my own, ways of living that are beyond what it is we do now and…

Dreaming

Karibu! I hope your week has gone swimmingly and that your anticipation for weekend proggie* is almost at its zenith. An article I read this morning has absorbed me completely. I’m a fan of science fiction and I mostly write science fiction and fantasy. I write about the things I love. I’m constantly scouring the…

Black holes close by

Karibu! How are you? I hope you are well. Recently, I sent a request out to join a group of people in an online social group. At first the experience was incredible because people there seemed to like the same things I liked. I chatted and talked and gave my opinion to anyone who had…

Defiant

Reader! You flatter me with your presence, Karibu. Today I had a lot of cooking to do and decided it would be nice to finally find out what Defiance was all about. In case you’ve been asleep at the Sci-Fi wheel, the story of Defiance (the new name of St. Louis, Missouri) is set in…

Bee-bee-dee Boop!

Are you doing okay? Wanna talk about it?  Leave your comment. Today is a smoggy day and I’m grateful to have and be near my computer. It also means that I’ve got to find a way to be productive and allow my fingers to speak for my brain. Telepathy will come soon enough. If we…

Would You Survive an Encounter?

Hello Readers! I hope today was a productive day for you. I managed to finish my experiment with Adobe Premiere. One of my superpowers is teaching myself to use new software (and hardware) and then searching the internet for the experts who have free tutorials online, so I can learn things I didn’t even know…

Whence Cometh Thine Inspiration?

Hola! Today is a sunny day and I hope that wherever you are you get to enjoy it! Last night inspiration hit for a new story. An exciting story. A GREAT tale. I quickly relayed the information to my co-author for all things exciting and got a few things down. It got me thinking about inspiration and the…

Nit Pickers Unite!

Reader! You’re here! How are you doing today? I had a wonderful night last night, racing for the movie theatre to watch Oblivion with Tom Cruise and Morgan Freeman. I enjoyed watching the movie, then I hit rock bottom this morning and found stuff to grumble about. Don’t you just love it? SPOILERS AHEAD!! Thankfully,…
