Weekly Recap – August 16th, 2013

Wow. It’s been over a month since my last Weekly Recap, so I guess that would make this post my first Monthly Recap. Lots has happened. First and foremost, a close friend that some of us know through blogging recently lost his father. I don’t want to name him out of respect, but his week has definitely been a heavy …

National Whack-A-Mole Month(s)

When it rains it pours, etc, etc. I missed my first Weekly Recap entry since I began putting them together earlier this year. I haven’t been writing as much as I should, because I’ve been dealing with some chronic pain that’s had me in a funk the past couple of weeks. I’m hoping that ends soon (the pain and the …

Weekly Recap – July 26th, 2013

I apologize for my lack of communication for the past few days. I’ve been dealing with some sudden medical issues, and while it’s nothing life threatening, doctor visits and other minutiae piled on top of my busy work schedule have eaten into writing/blog time. I guess this is the price for trying to organize and plan ahead. 🙂 So, not …

Weekly Recap – July 19th, 2013

I believe I finally exited reality this past week. For some reason, I committed to putting together some sort of write-a-thon during what will probably be an extremely busy rest-of-the-year at my day job. Taking on added responsibilities is so unlike me. 🙂 I’m glad I did though. The time will never magically appear, it has to be made. And …

Weekly Recap – July 12th, 2013

My slight OCD compels me to post something, but unfortunately I don’t have time to write much. A friend is visiting from out of town and we’re off to the Orange County Fair. There will be lots of walking around and eating deep fried food that should never be deep fried. I leave you with a photo my wife took in …

Weekly Recap – July 5th, 2013

I hope my fellow Americans enjoyed their Fourth of July. My ear infection seemed to be on its way out yesterday, so I was able to enjoy the fireworks without sandwiching my head between pillows. I’ve you’ve ever ridden in a car and had the window down on only one side, than you likely understand the low frequency flutter effect …

Weekly Recap – June 28th, 2013

Here’s a little YouTube inspiration that I listened to throughout the week. I needed a gentle kick in the ass so I would be forced to produce. Well, I probably needed something more than gentle, but this is a start! These pep talks helped me crank out 2,600 words over the past couple of days. Not that word count is …

Weekly Recap – June 21st, 2013

I almost didn’t write today’s post. Sometimes, I get the feeling that I have nothing to say…until I have something to say. I have to constantly remind myself to just type things and chip away at the memory banks. In March, I decided to submit Higher Minds on a whim. It was the story I had put together for Litreactor’s Teleport Us contest, where it was well …

Weekly Recap – June 14th, 2013

Brace yourself for random screeds: Concerning my current WIP, I feel an energy coming back. It’s not quite there yet, but the excitement is building. Here’s to hoping it amounts to something and I pull out of my current dip. I’ve been researching like a madman, so it’s time to take a look at my outline again and see how …

Weekly Recap – June 7th, 2013

You ever have one of those weeks where you’re just not feelin’ it? If not, kindly donate a bottle of whatever it is you’re chugging each morning. My posts added up to a big, fat goose egg this week, nor did I take much time to follow the efforts of my WordPress friends and family. I apologize if I missed something awesome, …
