Napping Videos

I think I’m too tired, because I think about sleeping and naps all the time. Look, I’m middle-aged and I totally own that.  And, for most of my life, I haven’t gotten enough quality sleep.  I own that, too.  It’s probably one reason I’m a little over-weight and have high blood pressure.  Sure, I do […]

Old School Newsletters

Not so old school that they’re printed, but, still, pretty old school. I’ve always been an email sort of guy. And, I pretty much hate the modern forums. I hate having to go to a web interface and deal with all their junk and advertising. Also, as regular readers may have noticed from my blog, […]

Unleash your Creativity Scientifically

I am NOT feeling creative this week. And, I mean, not at all. Not even a little bit. So, what’s to do? Well, for one thing, I’m going to go ahead into work and be not creative there. I might as well collect a paycheck for not feeling creative and force myself to solve problems […]

Writers, Talking

If you’re doing NaNoWriMo this month, you should be roughly a third of the way through and might need a bit of a break. If you aren’t participating in National Novel Writing Month, that’s okay.  It’s still Friday and maybe you just need a break.  Either way, I think I’ve got you covered this week.  […]

Writing Advice

And encouragement! If you’re doing NaNoWriMo this month, you should be four days into your book today. But, maybe you’re cocky and are really just going to get started tonight after work. Either way, you can still do it! Fantastically prolific authors, especially some of the more well-known pulp writers, churned out books in very […]

Project Music

Or, more specifically, music for your projects. Clearly, I’m not talking about a manufacturing project here, but, rather, music for your creative project. Maybe you have a dream project that you’ve filmed on your iPhone and want to add some cool background music to your creation before uploading it to YouTube.  Or, maybe you need […]

Sandwich Book

Hmm, who doesn’t love sammiches? Seriously, sandwiches are the best. I particularly like peanut butter sandwiches, though my wife thinks the things I combine with peanut butter are mildly insane.  Frankly, I think if she would just try the peanut butter and sweet relish sandwich, she’d see just how sweet and savory combine to make […]

Aerial View

One more aerial view thing next week and I’ll have an actual theme for the month. Once upon a time, I used to watch a lot of the food and restaurant related reality television that seemed to run on the more obscure cable channels.  One of my favorites was Bar Rescue.  And, one of the […]

Naming Names

Naming is hard. Naming things can be one of the most difficult tasks for an author. Whether it’s naming people, places or things, the endless work of finding just the right name, one that sounds realistic and fits the circumstances, can be trying work. For me, place names are the hardest to do well. No […]

Movie Makeup for Halloween

There’s still time, if you’re going to dress up for Halloween! Personally, I don’t bother, but, if you do, then there is still some time to work in some high-quality make-up to your costume.  I love watching shows about science-fiction effects and monster makeup, like SyFy’s Face Off, and I’ve always wanted to do that […]
