I don't particularly like February. Yes, it's the shortest month of the calendar year in number of days, but it's also the longest, at least to me. It's a chilly, dreary, gray lump of a month. It's not really winter, although we will still get some winter weather. It's definitely not spring, but there will … Continue reading Oh, February, Why Do You Last So Long?

And The Cover Is—-
Here's the cover design for Crossed Wires and Other Very Short Stories. I like it. It has the feel of both the genre crossing (Scifi and fantasy) and the title story. I came up with the basic idea for the cover, and the BaldMan, who has the better eye for overall design) put together the … Continue reading And The Cover Is—-

It cut into things enough that the week felt off kilter all the way through. I'm working on adjusting to the new schedule since the PT sessions twice a week are going … Continue reading Upside Down
It’s Winter Again (Still?)

Today, I am looking out the windows of my office at 23 degrees (that's F for those not in the US), wind, and multiple inches of snow. March … Continue reading It’s Winter Again (Still?)
