    How I Spent My 2020

    First, let me assure you that I am alive and well. I’ve been living happily (uh, well….) these past 10 days in the year 2021. Yes, we made it. Well, some of us. 2020 was supposed to be one of those glorious benchmark years. Look how far we’ve come! Look at the advances we’ve made […]

    Anti-Virus, Weeks 6-8ish – Puking into the Dilithium Chamber

    In reviewing my previous two blogs, I came to the conclusion that they stink. No, it’s not because of the quality of the writing. Although, that wasn’t very good, either. But dang, it’s just a blog, not a TMZ article. Give me a break. Truthfully, they were just too negative. (Not to mention they were […]

    Anti-Virus, Week 5 Plus Video Game Talk

    You know what? Forget even doing the one news dump a day. I’m just not checking the news at all. I’m better off living in ignorance than being disappointed in people. Or, maybe I’ll just get all my news from NPR from now on, as it seems as boring and unsensationalized as possible. Is that […]

    Anti-Virus, Weeks 3-4

    Week 3 can be summed up as, more or less, a duplicate of Week 2. In spite of what was happening in the world around me, I felt good about the use of my time and stayed positive and productive. I was Burgess Meredith in “Time Enough at Last” right before his glasses break. Week […]

    Anti-Virus, Week 2

    Well, I guess I’ve adapted to this way of life…as much as one might be able. While COVID-19 is never fully out of my mind, I must admit that there have been a few times over the past week where I kind of forgot about it. Not in the sense that I don’t care, that […]

  • Hard Reset

    Hard Reset

    I almost posted a very different blog about my 2020 plans and expectations, but I had something of a revelation today concerning my approach to creativity: It’s not working. It made the original blog mostly irrelevant, but there are a couple of key points that will sneak their way into this one, too. My wife […]

    Progress Report, A Last Minute Convention Appearance Announcement, and other Odds and Ends

    Hello, everyone! I have a lot of business to cover, and not much time in which to do so, so let’s get going. First of all, we are a last-minute addition to Saluki Con at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, Illinois, this Saturday and Sunday, September 28-29! We were planning to just attend, but a […]
