I’ve spent some time comparing my current writing to my past pieces. I do so lightly because I realize it isn’t fair to what I’m writing now to look back and see where my mindset was four years ago. Yet, I still do. Fair or not, I need to know if I’m growing as an

Within the swirling chaos of our lives a lone center of order must be found. Writing is no different. Inside my head I have thousands of ideas which could be considered for the next writing project, but picking which ones work and which ones won’t isn’t the easiest thing. First and foremost I have to
The year of change continues Over the past month or so I’ve had a lot of personal changes, which I don’t find surprising, but after some reflection I figured it was time to sit down and write about them. I spend a lot of time inside my own head, which again, I don’t find surprising.
So vacation is over in many ways. Gen Con finished up two weeks ago, and it took some time to recover from the 4-5 days of craziness. The trip wouldn’t have happened at all without my friend Lonnie, who footed the hotel bill and Monte Cook Games who bought my badge in exchange for working

Intelligent. Adventurous. Determined. Origins of the Black Idol protagonist Julius Godom is a man at war with himself. Steeped in centers of higher learning for the better part of his life, Julius had the benefit of the best teachers and educators around. The son of a university professor and master librarian, the formative years found
The streets of Allahabad were hot under Julius’ feet as he walked down the dirt paths towards the main marketplace. He’d spent the past hour in the congested alleyways, desperately looking for any sign of the woman who he’d seen inside the university offices, but she’d disappeared as quickly as the idol had. In Julius’
The train ride to Allahabad has given me the opportunity to put pencil to paper again and create a record of what I’ve seen – or what I think I’ve seen – along the way. I didn’t have time to use my camera at the mountain village and going back isn’t an option now. The
