Speed Blogging

Several weeks ago, I informed my wife that I would not be participating in NaBloPoMo this year.  Last year, I was able to write daily for an entire month because I was unemployed and didn’t have a lot else to do.  You can only prepare so many job application essays before you drive yourself crazy, and NaBloPoMo seemed like a perfect opportunity to improve my writing skills.  I knew that, if nothing else, it would be a “butt in chair” exercise that would get me into the habit of pounding out something every 24 hours, even if I didn’t particularly feel like it and didn...more

Just Hit Repeat

I believe the one thing that can bring people together is music. Lately, I have been trying to find new artists to listen too and it has been hard to discover new ones. For those of us who are a little older the radio would help. Radio before commercialization and when you could turn to another station and not hear the same song. I keep listening to what I consider my oldies/goodies....more

#NaBloPoMo 2014: Day 2: Nudity & Risque Content

Yesterday, while I was sitting there in IHOP surrounded by all of the #nanowrimo devotees, an interesting thing happened. I was about two hundred and thirty words into my first blog post for #nablopomo and I got an intuitive message to copy and paste my work thus far into my text editor....more
