Some Stuff


Serious question: Why isn’t Solo: A Star Wars Story doing better in theaters? I’m being completely honest with that, I want to know. Why haven’t all you Star Wars fans been out there to see it yet? I loved it. Is it because there isn’t a lot of big bad Empire that they are fighting against through most of it? Yes, it’s got some heist movie feel to it. It also has a whole bunch of Star Wars feel. So I’m just curious why you aren’t all very excited about it.

We had lunch today at Culver’s. I just want to point this out for any of you out there who cannot have wheat buns that they have a really good gluten free bun. Like good. As in yum. Nice and chewy and thick. So much better than a lot of gluten free stuff I’ve see out there.

My current work in progress is coming along. Got a nice big chunk of writing in today, and it felt really good. There was an intense set of things that happened in the chapter I wrote, and I needed to get that out of me before the weekend hit.

Speaking of writing…

A couple of days ago I woke up from a dream that was almost in its entirety the basis for a book that I am very excited to write now. That isn’t all that surprising, I get a lot of my writing ideas from dreams. The exciting part this time is that I actually managed to write almost everything down on my phone before forgetting it. It was great. It was pretty early, and I was going to go back to sleep, but I needed to write that down first. I have a really good feel about that one. We’ll see when I get the time to write it.

Everyone have a great weekend!

Fifth Anniversary


Friday, May 18th 2018 is our fifth anniversary!

I am so amazed that it has already been five years. It seems like it was just yesterday that we were meeting up to go to the zoo for our first date. Ah, wandering around in the zoo looking for an exhibit that I remembered but had been replaced since my last visit. I’m really surprised she put up with me!

I’m even more surprised that she has put up with me for this long. My wife is the most loving, supportive, and wonderful person of all time. Beautiful too!

Happy fifth anniversary, my love. I hope this amazing ride never ends.

New Bikes, New Books

Fancy meeting you here, stranger!

This week we got some new folding bicycles. We’ve been thinking of getting some bike so we can take them out to some of the trails around the metro, as well as take them with us when we travel out of town possibly, for quite a while now. So the other day we took the plunge and bought these:

Wait, wait, that’s not it. Here is the actual image of it all folded up in our living room:

And here is the link to the actual store listing, showing a better image:

I’ve started my new book, which is still officially untitled at this point, even though I have a general idea what the title will be. This is the book with a trans main character, and also my first ever book writing from a dual point of view. I’m about two chapters in, and so far I’m really enjoying the dual point of view. Granted, it’s early to tell if writing dual POV is going to work out, but I’m hopeful.

The interesting thing with the dual point of view is that I can show a whole lot more than I could before, and it also allows me to easily skip over some of the more boring points. It allows a natural time break, and even somewhat helps when there is a lull. When things get slow I can just swap to the other character and everything is fresh again. It also allows me to explore their different attractions and how those develop. I’m really enjoying this. It’s pretty scary, being the first time I’ve tried this, but I’m doing okay with it. I think.

Beyond Freedom is now officially available on Amazon.

Everyone have a great weekend!
