It's been a while since I've been here. The past few months have been rather hectic for me. Fortunately, things are finally starting to slow down a bit. I'm settling into the new rhythm of my life. I don't have as much time to work on this as I used to, but I am starting … Continue reading Back from the Dead (or at least a long break)
It's coming, I promise. I am working on it. I wrote a couple pages just the other day. Then I deleted them because I didn't like them. Between that and all the interruptions, it's taking more time than I'd like. Of course, it would help if people would stop accidentally setting their kitchen on fire … Continue reading I really am working on chapter 6

Mountains of bureaucratic paperwork have been moved to register with the appropriate state and federal agencies. I'm now officially and legally … Continue reading Writing in Slow Motion
This past week has been incredibly busy. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to keep writing at the top of the priority tree, so Chapter 5 is taking longer than I'd like. The good news is, I'm almost done with the mountains of red-tape associated with my EMT class. So far, I'm enjoying the class. It's … Continue reading Slow and steady wins the race, right?
Chapter 4 is finally "text-complete". Now I just have to go back and revise and edit. I'd have finished it sooner, but I kept having important stuff come up. Like last night, some farmer accidentally set his field on fire. We got the fire out. It only took resources from about half the county and … Continue reading Chapter 4 almost finished!
