This could be enough for anyone. Not for me, but it might be for you. I’m using it now, and it’s actually really nice. What do you really need for writing a blog on the go? It really comes down to this, I think: A personal computing device, like a mobile phone, tablet, or laptop.… More Simplest mobile blogging setup
While I very much enjoy writing and blogging, I’ve not been doing it consistently over the years. And it’s not because of any kind of creative block so much as feeling stifled by the constraints of my employment (whether real or only perceived). But I think there’s a way out of that. I previously used… More Conquering a stifled approach to blogging
I’ve been moving from a desktop-centric writing approach to a mobile workflow that liberates me. Along the way, I’m finding some tips and tricks that are too good to share. Let’s start out with one of the most important ones: leave me the hell alone when I’m writing!
It’s been awhile since I’ve written, and much has changed. I thought it was time to lay down some updates. Since my last post, I’ve made some big career decisions.
In a recent blog, I shined a little bit of a light on something that I found both curious and validating. No, I’m not mad for wanting to try writing a serious literary work with a fountain pen. Neil Gaiman does it all the time. But that seed took root and bore sweet fruit.
Yup. His tastes are a bit more expensive than my own, though both pens are fantastic and I’d write with either/both if I could stomach spending that much on a pen.

This is a really elegant writing instrument that never should have been allowed to fade back into obscurity and the hobbies of overpaid eccentrics. If you’re curious about fountain pens, you… More Fountain Pens for Cheap Bastards
I’m eighteen days into NaNoWriMo 2015, a writing challenge to help aspiring authors to finish the first draft of a long form novel in one thirty days. And I’m going to finish tonight. Even though a real novel is closer to seventy to eighty thousand words or more, the goal here is a mere fifty… More NaNoWriMo 2015: Strolling to the Finish Line
Last week was an inconsistent yet productive week for writing. I had a lot going on, between fighting a virus and having multiple health & well-being type appointments to keep up. I ended up having one sub-par writing day, and two non-writing days. Yet I wrote over 7,000 words yesterday and only stopped because I… More NaNoWriMo 2015 Update: The Final Battle
Despite the relative quiet of this blog, I’ve been quite busy. I’ve retired from photography projects. While I believe I’m pretty decent at it, the engagement model for photographic art in 2015 is fleeting at best. What takes me hours or days to create should take more than a couple of seconds to appreciate. But… More I’ve been writing, just not here
