Chasing my dream…

Karibu Reader! Are you ready for Saturday? I wish I could say I was! I’m chasing my dream and it is not always the easiest thing. As a child, I wanted to be a doctor/engineer/lawyer. By the time I was a teenager, I’d picked Doctor after reading a novel that romanticized medical school. One night…

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…

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…

Writing the Future

Reader! Welcome back. How is your day going? So, I finally did it. Joined a group of like minded people focusing on something big and grand and good. I signed up to join the Hieroglyph Project, which, in the words of Neal Stephenson, is  to …  get SF writers to contribute pieces to an anthology. These pieces would all be…

World Building

Hello! Happy Tuesday! One of my favorite writing exercises is building Worlds. It feels like a child-like thing to do sometimes, making up names for stuff that no one has ever seen, but it is incredibly fulfilling. It makes me think that within each one of us is an innate sense that is only satisfied…
