PES Friday: This Week’s Recommended Reads – 5/11/2018

Just when you think life is settling down and making ample room for you to work on the fun stuff, new challenges pop up–dental work for the kiddo, a gas leak at the house, and elderly care issues. Oh well…somehow, if you’re hungry enough, you make the time! Poem Ozymandias by Percy Bysshe Shelley My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings; Look …

PES Friday: This Week’s Recommended Reads – 4/27/2018

I have a ‘writer’s motivation’ post in the works as I haven’t posted much on the blog recently, outside of the PES and story/process entries. So look for that in the coming week.

I’m playing catch-up with the writing, but …

I’m sure I’ll run into a week of dry-as-dust reading, but I’ve been experiencing the opposite problem–having to choose between a bunch of really good scribblin’s to share with you guys. I could just post everything, though I think that would be the easy way out (minus the extra typing and hyperlinking). If praying for my set of burpees to end …

PES Friday: This Week’s Recommended Reads – 2/23/2018

In addition to my daily PES schedule, I managed to finish an excellent sci-fi novel and am halfway through the meandering yet insightful memoirs of Louis L’Amour: Education of a Wandering Man. I’ll probably post more about that when I finish, but talk about inspiration for writers–this guy just devoured books. It’s all the good stuff too (here’s a sample list …
