Goodhalo II – Progress

Hey, I’m going to do my best to not be all boring and tell you how I’m doing on my current work in progress. So, I’ll be uber-brief.

GOODHALO II is over halfway done.

Check the progress bar, suckas.

It’s rough, it’s nasty…but it’s gonna be one heckuva story.

Tommy likey.…

How cool is it that my little word meter thing shows my word count BLASTING through my previous estimate of 75,000 words? I’m tempted to adjust it to 90,000 or 100,000 (which is more realistic) but I sort of like that it’s continuing past the edge of the thingy-ma-jig.

I swear. It doesn’t take much to amuse me.

Cinema Nugget: …

Catch Up

I swear I haven’t fallen off the face of the planet. I’ve just been working REALLY hard on getting my book into a 1st draft that I feel good about. I think I’m a week away from that happening. That’s not so bad.

In the last few days, I’ve had some major stuff happen in GOODHALO.

To be vague:

– …

Scaring Myself

It JUST started storming here in the great Midwest. I’m talking booming thunder, wicked lightning and hard rain pelting the window of my basement office. What better atmosphere to write the 2nd half of my fantasy/adventure/zombie fest GOODHALO?

It’s almost like nature decided to produce the ambiance just for me. I was just writing a wicked scene that (if they …

Under Pressure…

Okay, so the fire’s been lit.

Yes, I’m talking about the one directly under my buttsteak. It’s time for me to move from talking about getting my 4th novel done and hammer this sucker out.

Here’s where I’m sitting: 20,685 words.

My goal? Have the dang thing finished. Somewhere around 75,000 words.

Can it be done? Absolutely.

That being said, …

Chapter 20…And I’m Sorta Bored.

*spoiler free zone*


Well, I’m truckin’ my way through Harry Potter 7 and I’m going to be honest: I’m sort of bored with it. I won’t give any spoilers or anything like that, but I kind of thought it started with a bang and it feels like Ms. Rowling has just sort of padded the middle with stuff that …

Things That Have Happened Recently

Little TKT in a rare moment of charity, 7.4.07

I gotta prepare my latest entry in the Thursday 13 series, so I’ll hit you up with some quickies.

1. Dyed my hair. Got sick of looking like my dad, so I darkened it up. Funny thing. People would always comment on my graying hair (you look so distinguised!). So far …

Hey Party People. What up?

If you were looking for my very first Thursday 13, it’s right here. You could, you know, scroll down and see it, but I know some of y’all are all about the convenience. Me? I love a good value.

Actually, I just like the word ‘value.’ Try it out a couple times. Value. Vaaaaaluuuuue.

Okay. …

Plate? Not Full Enough, Apparently.

Yo, yo, yo.

Well, I did something that might be construed as kind of stupid yesterday. You know that company that’s going to publish my wee little book next January? Well, they’ve told me that I’m welcome to submit ideas for future books and/or series and well, I sort of just came up with like 3 different series ideas.

Yeah. …

So What The Heck Is…


I know this is the big, burning question of the day.
(Even if it isn’t, pretend it is. It’ll make me feel that much more better and…you know, important)

Goodhalo is my first attempt at writing YA/Fantasy/Horror. That is to say, it’s the new book I’m writing for the Young Adult crowd. I sort of think I’ve got a …
