Cerebral Writing

A professional micromanager with words, I keep having a hard time writing blogposts suited to sparking and maintaining a conversation.

Silent Hill

Are You Afraid of the Dark? (Running By Night)

There must be a reason why I keep doing such things.

I Write Like… / Ich schreibe wie …

Orwell and Freud, according to statistical analysis. Are these algorithms our Digital Age’s new Über-Ich, filtering out everything deemed unsuitable and socially disruptive?

Is There Life Beyond Time Management?

It’s either the universe, or I’m too organized.

Some Old Spoof: “Three True But Pointless Arguments of Pea Counting Supporters”

Some form principles, it turns out, are surprisingly robust and can sustain even the most nonsensical content.

Angels

I barely remember this poem of yore I happened to come across the other day. It creaks & grates, and I have only the most vague idea about what it was supposed to be about.

Home in the Universe

Home in Our World

I always loved “Home on the Range.” Here’s a variation on this song, situated in a 21st century where humanity is still kept, or keeps itself, from being free.

Hit the road, Jack.

Some Good News, Some Bad News from the Nano Front

My nanoseries didn’t suit Green Tentacles’ i.e. Thaumatrope’s needs, though I’m not sure what they meant. But I never self-publish submitted and rejected texts.

On With the Nanonovels!

I’ve got an idea for a new nanonovel, a murder mystery. It’s an idea related to a chapter in Robert Coover’s novel Gerald’s Party.

Now What’s Next in Nano

Right now I’m working on a nanoseries for Green Tentacles’ @thaumatrope channel on Twitter. I hope I’ll have it done when they accept submissions again.

Yet Another Project With In-Built Resistance: An Epistolary Nanonovel

Next Nanonovel Project in the Making

A Nanonovel’s a Novel, After All
