The Election Is Over At Last!

November 18th, 2008

I know the tag line on this blog mentions opinions, but it seems of late I’ve been reluctant to publicly discuss politics at all. I live in Concord, NH which is a pretty Liberal city as far as New Hampshire goes and usually goes heavily Democratic in elections so my neighbors and I recognize our […]

Things should start happening

August 10th, 2008

I’ve been laying low for quite a while, what with the kids out of school and all, plus I built a new office in my basement… which led to a strained Achilles tendon and a bad ciatic nerve. It sucks getting old, don’t let anyone tell you different. Anyhow, I’m going to clean up […]

It’s Alive!

August 10th, 2008

I think I’m finally over the hump with this writing thing- I’ve been putting it off and putting it off, but I really do want to go back to daily posting and getting my head around the second book. I talked to Dean and he’s up for taking on an editing role- he’s still not […]

A change in the air

April 29th, 2008

I’ve been kicking about, considering all the possibilities since deciding to put my infatuation with Methuselah’s Daughter to rest. I still have a few stories kicking around that really should be finished, a few others that are mostsly finished and should be posted- all this if only to start putting up some content on a […]

Patriots (8-0) at Indianapolis (7-0), 4:15 PM EST

November 4th, 2007

I am a football fan. Not one of those fully committed I’ll-dye-myself-red-white-and-blue then cheer on the team in my shorts under the cold November sunshine fans, just a guy who likes to watch the game and likes to watch his team win.  I became a football fan in 1985 when the Patriots staggered their way […]

Methuselah’s Daughter, Part 3, Chapters 21, 22, 23 & 24

October 15th, 2007

More chapters (21, 22, 23 and 24) are up at Methuselah’s Daughter. I’ve been trying to keep a running commentary on the chapters as we go, but somehow it’s just not happening. So sue me. Lots of what happens in these chapters are the direct result of arguments between Dean and I. Arguments about how […]

Writing yourself into a box

June 29th, 2007

I’ve done it before- start a story, things are shaping up nicely… and suddenly you run out of ideas, or the story takes a turn you can’t seem to flesh out. I’m staring that in the face right now with a story line on It starts with this post, titled Dalene. The comment thread […]

How this works

June 1st, 2007

The temptation is to dig into the files and start tossing things up- the more, the better, right?  Problem is, a lot of what I have is literally ‘filed away,’ as in typed pages or spiral notebooks full of scribbling sitting in drawers in a filing cabinet. I’ll take one out, look at it, and […]

And here we are…

June 1st, 2007

The beautiful thing about a new blog by an unknown person is you can just do and say what you want for a few months (or maybe forever- it’s always possible that you’re just too damned boring for anyone to bother) until you get a feel for what you want to show to the world. […]
