Weekly Recap – October 24th, 2014

Uh oh folks. I want to apologize right now for any villain-in-the-making. The boy is obviously plotting something nefarious… …but maybe he’s just considering the timing of his next poop/pee during a diaper change. He seems to enjoy watching his parents scramble for cover. So, I took a time management class at work yesterday and it [...]

My Wattpad Article is Up!

My local writer’s group posted an article I wrote about my Wattpad experiment! If you have some free time and a smidgen of interest, you can check it out here. It even has a rather serious photo of unshaven me, sitting by a plant. -Phillip

Our Little Minion

A HUGE “Thank You” to L. Marie who knitted Angus his own Minion hat. As you can see, he loves it. I’d say the description of minions on the Despicable Me Wiki matches up: They are impulsive creatures with little self-control, but with a wide-eyed wonder and odd innocence that endears them to viewers and makes them relatable. They [...]

Book Review – The Iliad by Homer (Robert Fagles Translation)

“Rage–Goddess, sing the rage of Peleus’ son Achilles…” Whether cavemen throwing rocks, Greeks thrusting spears, or drones launching Hellfire missiles–it’s a sad fact that human beings are pretty good at fighting each other. One recent scientific study even suggests our hands evolved in order to throw better punches. And because our nature hasn’t really changed in the [...]

Weekly Recap – October 10th, 2014

Since nothing much has changed on the writing front, how about a picture story of Angus: -Phillip

Weekly Recap – October 3rd, 2014

Blah. This past week was not a productive one, writing wise. Angus was a handful. His mom has had to deal with the majority of it, so I feel bad if I don’t provide some relief when I’m not in the office. Though I know I’ll miss his newborn cuteness, I look forward to the day he [...]

My First Paycheck

Well, not my first paycheck ever, though the numbers on that one and this one weren’t too far apart. I’m talking about my first ever official writing income. I was pretty amused upon receiving this from Amazon the other day. Three years ago, in my reckless youth, I thought I could slap together any old short story and put [...]

Wolf’s Tail – Chapter Four…

…is now up! This one is really a teaser scene, but hopefully brought some more tension and character building to the mix. I’ve begun work on the next one which will definitely be longer and more complex. I hope that I can get it done by Friday but that will depend on other responsibilities… Again, thanks [...]

Weekly Recap – September 26th, 2014

This face says a million things, all different. I’m curious what you think is on Angus’ mind, so comment away. :) I’m also busy trying to finish the next scene of Wolf’s Tail so I can put it up on Wattpad. Though I managed to squeeze out a review, this week’s time was largely spent on family and the day job. [...]

Book Review – Dead Man’s Hand (Anthology) by John Joseph Adams

“The game’s ‘Weird West,’ no limit, and everything’s wild.” If you’ve never heard of the Weird West genre, don’t feel too disconnected. I had no idea such a thing existed until I picked up Dead Man’s Hand – Anthology of the Weird West edited by John Joseph Adams. I knew the stuff I’ve been writing (Wolf’s [...]
