Self-aware. Self conscious. Self induced.

From the “Various and Sundry” files

On new posts: our tenants in Milwaukee have, to their surprise more than anyone’s, gotten a dream job out of state. This is great news for them and as disappointed as we are to be losing great people, we’re hoping to take advantage of their sudden departure and get our house on the market and try to sell it. There should be a direct link you can make between that statement and how much time I’ll have to be updating. We’ll see how it goes. If well, I may be posting about the work itself and trying to make it doubly useful to myself by connecting it to writing.

And speaking of writing…


On writing novels: I have discovered, roughly 100 pages into novel #2, that I have a great story. This is good news. The bad news is that I do not have a novel. The good news is that I have discovered this only 100 pages in and not 200 pages in. The bad news is that I still have to go back to the beginning and start over. Good thing I like it.

    what makes it “not a novel”?

    • No structure, super-messy. It could probably pass as a post-modern novel, but I’m going for YA urban fantasy and I need to abide by a couple of the traditional rules.

  2. Surely that’s not a writing template there in the table…

    • It’s not. It’s a drill index. I use it as an inadequate coaster.

    what does a lighting template have to do with writing? :)

    • Is that a trick question?
