Writing forces me to examine my views as cold words on a page.
My views are borne out of my experiences on this world.
My experiences are slowly adding to the short story that is my life.
While I still can, I choose to share some for anyone who might find them useful, or perhaps just entertaining.

I just got the result for the Professional Validation Award. Before I reveal the winner, I’d like to take a moment and acknowledge and thank the person who put in the effort to not only be the judge for the … Continue reading
The voting ended and the results are in . . . but, before I present the winner — if you haven’t yet done so and if so inclined — please take a few minutes (about 15-20 minutes) and read the … Continue reading
This post contains three Christmas short stories. Two are from twin brothers and one is from me but they are presented anonymously so as to not bias the readers. Sorry it’s up so late; it was supposed to go live … Continue reading
This post is about the three writers (Perry, Gary, and me) providing critiques both for the stories of the other writers and their own submission. If you haven’t read the stories, this won’t make much sense and since we only … Continue reading
I just got the result for the Professional Validation Award and it’s a SWEEP! Perry’s story, Messes, takes the top prize. Congratulations, Perry. For them interested in such matters, Needwood? grabbed second place and my story, Dreams, came in dead … Continue reading

===>>> SPOILERS AHEAD <<<=== As much as I often sound like a snobbish movie reviewer, I yearn — yearn, I tell you — for good entertainment. Every year, the film industry takes a wack at making me happy . . … Continue reading
I haven’t done movie reviews in a while. Wanna know why? It’s the same ole story. Most new movies are vapid efforts concentrating more on CGI than characters, on action more than plot. I don’t know if it’s my advancing … Continue reading
Since January, I’ve averaged exactly twelve (12) posts per month. That is a huge drop from years past. In 2015, for instance, my average was more than one post a day and that’s when I was working. It’s not just … Continue reading
WordPress now has a plugin for Google Docs and — brave soulless soul that I am — I’m trying it out. The first thing I noticed is the lack of support for Grammarly. Actually, the other way around. Grammarly does … Continue reading
My previous post brought to light complaints — mostly from ex-readers of this blog — regarding my propensity for lengthy, boring, unfocused, and ‘did I mention boring?’ posts. Well, as I’m about to embark on yet another NaNoWriMo journey, it … Continue reading
This is my “don’t feel like doing jack liquid effluent” post . . . a bit of this, a bit of that. Let me start by mentioning Lao Tzu . . . he sure said a lot of things. It … Continue reading
Believe it or not, we went to the theater and saw a movie. We rarely go but when we do Thursday is the day of the week because there are few other people, especially at the first showing. OK, here’s the … Continue reading
