Every once in a while, on days like today when I either can't think of something to write, or I know what I want to write but it's not coming out easily or the way I want to see it happen, I take some time to look back over things I've already written. I'm usually … Continue reading Author’s Reflection

I've decided to take today off from Daydreams in order to focus on a larger project. I'll be back on Monday with a regular post. Have a good weekend!
Sometimes, there is a barrier-fog in my brain. It frustrates me, because it lets me see what I want to work on. Everything is blurred and refracted, but I still know it’s there; I have a concept of what my goal is, even though the barrier-fog makes it hard to see clearly. Sometimes the goal … Continue reading Barrier-Fog
A Dream I Had
How often do you remember your dreams? What form do those dreams take? I personally go through phases of dream recall. Sometimes, for months on end, I won’t remember a single dream that I’ve had. A vague sort of knowledge of the way the mind works tells me that I’m having dreams, but I’m just … Continue reading A Dream I Had
Sometimes I think I’ll just but wait maybe I’ll but this is right in front of me it needs doing. I should do this. Look I’m doing it. I’m getting it done and What happened? How is it twenty minutes later? Why did I even do those other things Where did they come from? Okay … Continue reading But
Author’s Reflection: A Retrospection
This blog has taught me a lot, and it's not all something I can clearly articulate. I've learned that it's just as difficult as I thought to be inspired on a daily basis. There are days, like today, when the inspiration that I need to write something new and different enough from previous entries simply … Continue reading Author’s Reflection: A Retrospection
Greetings, companions. Every year, I come back to my high school band camp as an instructor. This year is no different. For the next week, I will be very busy most hours of the day, and I'll probably be using my down time to rest. There likely won't be any posts this week, and if … Continue reading Band Camp!
Author’s Reflection: Din
I actually have quite a lot I could say about the piece that will be published today, even though, upon reading it, it may not seem dissimilar from anything else I've published here. Din is based on concepts I began to develop over eighteen years ago. The world in which Din takes places and the characters it references … Continue reading Author’s Reflection: Din
Author’s Reflection: White Marble
The story that will be posted today, White Marble, may seem less like a short story and more like a part of something else. That's because, in a way, it is. I wrote White Marble (which is just what I've titled it for posting here) as a way to explore a character from a longer … Continue reading Author’s Reflection: White Marble
A Regrettable Delay
Friends and companions, The Yew Tree became a story in two parts on accident, just as Trapped did before it. It grew outside of the bounds of the time limits I set myself to write. I intended to finish writing it yesterday so that it could conclude today, but unfortunately, I was quite unwell yesterday … Continue reading A Regrettable Delay
