So where have I been? I could give you some long sob story about depression and how it affects me, but the truth is, I usually write a lot when I’m depressed, so the excuse would only work on you, and not me, and in the end, I only write for myself anyways. I’m not one of those writers who really care much about the reader; his reactions, or comments … I probably should work on that, but right now it’s enough that I’m tapping away at the keyboard making sentences, and growing thoughts in this little brain of mine. The truth is simple, I had nothing to write about … nothing Read the rest of this entry »

I keep forgetting to add a link for Renee’s book for those of you who can’t figure it out on your own … HIT THIS LINK for the Amazon link … she’s also got it on Kindle for like two bucks! I’ve downloaded my copy, you can’t afford not to support a great writer like Renee’ … she’s paving the way!

Okay, I admit it 2009 has been a shitty year for me. After my last bout with this moral coil, it was suggested (and by suggested it I mean my doctor made it mandatory for me to see a therapist Read the rest of this entry »

Several times in the past couple weeks I’ve been motioned in some way to mention religion and how I feel about it. Now the problem with my telling you what my religious views are is that you might think I’m trying to tell you how, what, when, and who to believe in, and Read the rest of this entry »

I haven’t been posting a lot lately, and you know something, it’s for no good reason. I could say that I had gotten a little sloppy and the time spent hitting the gym, and the treadmill had taken it’s course, and I might even be right. I could say that I had been emotionally drained for personal problems, but I don’t really have any. The truth is, quite frankly, I was just simply tired of looking at these words. The strange part of it all, was that I wasn’t tired of the truth I was writing, but of my truth. I’m working on a podcast as we speak, but one of the problems with my life had been I have been under the correct assumption, that if I wasn’t on, I should just go home. Which is to say, that I was always the life of the party; I was always the funny one, and as time rolled on, the pressure of being the funny one has gotten me into more trouble than it was worth. One of my problems, however, was that as I was feeling pressure to be the witty entertaining guy with the long blond hair and went out of my way to be the unassuming guy without topics, and without controversy, I realized very quickly that I hated that guy. I like the guy I am, I guess I don’t like the pressure, but it’s not that much pressure so I’ll deal. Soooo, with that said, I have tons of shit to write about, and tons of shit to say, just not tonight. I went out to dinner (on a Tuesday, which is when everyone wants to hang out), and I’m kind of tired. I’m sorry about the delay in blog entries, but they will return.

John Hughes died today, and not too much older than I am right now, oddly enough. I wrote or said in a podcast once that if you can bottle mediocrity then you can rule the world, and after I learned of Mr. Hughes’ passing today I understood something very important that I missed in that essay/podcast. While it’s still true that if you bottle mediocrity you can rule the world. If you make a Read the rest of this entry »

I’ve been reminded by Renee’ that today marks a vague (yet real) one year anniversary of my daunting yet eye-opening adventure to the Squaw Valley Writer’s Workshop. A week from now it will mark yet another anniversary, the birth of this podcast and blog, and the death of my ambitions of becoming an author, as many of my loyal unpublishednotdead-ers have become aware of already; this news isn’t news, but rather redundant information. You’ve probably Read the rest of this entry »

I know this was supposed to be a blog about writing, and my mutterings of things worldly and common might be considered an offense, but in a halfhearted apology for my ramblings, they are, oddly enough, the ramblings of a writer (lowercase w), and worthy of the same read as my creative endeavors. I hope in the end you will forgive me for sharing them. If you are a regular reader of this blog, you’ll have already found that the short stories are lessening in their Read the rest of this entry »

If you follow this blog you will notice that it’s begging for comments, so do so please … second thing, Renee did a new Unpublishednotdead Podcast which I hold in my hot little hands all ready to put up, so look forward to that. Joanna and I will record a Reno Show on Thursday, and I have tons of more rants that are sitting in my computer awaiting editing … so keep reading.
