My year in preview.

I honestly did want to write a “Year in review” type of post, but with all the excuses I could give I didn’t. I did get shit done (for lack of a better term), and I’m proud of what I was able to accomplish. There were several short stories/flash fiction things I posted on the […]

NaNoWriMo and Beyond.

So NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) has ended, and yes I participated. I did, unfortunately, not reach the goal. A vacation involving Mickey Mouse and a cruise, kind of got in the way, but despite that hurdle I was able to reach 43K by the end of the month. Regardless of whether or not I […]

The Price of Favors – Chapter 2

I’m continuing to post chapters, up to five at least, onto the blog. Hope you enjoy. Chapter 2 The Saint, one of many local bars, resides on Louisville Avenue a mile or so from Mickey’s Saloon, six blocks from the Ouachita River. The Irish Pub has been around for close to 20 years and developed […]
