This is my quest. To follow that star! No matter how hopeless, no matter how far.

Writing has resumed as of today.

Grandpa's body rallied, miraculously restoring kidney function and it looks like he is past the crisis. However...

There will be a delay... · 9:11pm Oct 30th, 2019

..in the publishing of the next chapter of Brightly Lit.

I found out last night that I'm going to need to take bereavement leave from work for a few days. Writing will resume as soon as possible.

Quick Poll regarding Brightly Lit · 10:15am Oct 13th, 2019

So as most of you know, I've gone into full writing mode to get Brightly Lit finished this month or near to it. My question is:

1) Would you prefer the final chapters to come out in one push, spaced no more than a day apart?
or
2) Publish them as they are ready?

Just to mention, I have the next chapter almost ready to go and could have it out in the next 12 hours if I pushed. All it needs is formatting and the final edit pass that I always do.

I did a dumb.... · 5:10am May 17th, 2019

No, not that. Not intentionally anyway.


Okay, here's the thing. When it all went to hell, one of the things that got me going again was getting regular, full-time work. I am, somewhat proud to say, a hard worker. I'm very much an equine in that regards. I was born in the Year of the Horse, as was my oldest child, as was my father, by strange coincidence. I am descended from a line of horse warriors, and in fact my last name is a bastardization of the name for them.

So, winter was hard. I found myself a cave to live in through it all.

Final Steps... · 7:33pm Feb 24th, 2019

Well, the next few days will bring into being one of the last steps on my road to recovery from the events of this past summer. I'll be moving out of the temporary vacation home I've spent the winter in and be moving to a permanent or at least long-term living situation.

End of the Year · 11:17am Dec 31st, 2018

So, on this, the final day of the year, I take a look back as is my custom, and decide if the year was a Win or a Loss.

Some years have been epic wins. Some have been equally epic losses, and a few have straddled the line between good and bad.

2018 has not been one of those years. It firmly lands in the column of Loss.

Update · 7:53pm Dec 22nd, 2018

I didn't feel like writing a proper blog post. Although I've been reminded it's been far too long since I wrote one. So here is my post, based on recent events of my life...


It’s a cold morning, just a few days before Hearth’s Warming Eve.  You’re not entirely sure why you’re here. The old pony you’ve come to visit is still alive and kicking, but the once unstoppable torrent of words from him has slowed to a mere trickle over the past few months.

Rebuilding · 9:43pm Aug 31st, 2018

It's been just over 4 weeks since my life underwent a sea change. I won't bore you all with repeating the details but I was literally down to just about nothing.

Then the Magic of Friendship happened.

And it all came to a crashing halt.... · 11:31pm Aug 2nd, 2018

Despite attempts to hold things together, and having what I thought was a functional detente, my marriage came to a screeching halt last night as my partner threw me out into the dark and cold with nothing but the clothes on my back. I am homeless, unable to return home for my things unless I have a police escort and before I do that I have to secure a place to live.
