Updates Du Jour

I'm typing this entry on my new keyboard for the iPad. I know, it doesn't seem like that big of a deal...but little things amuse me. If you're interested, it's a Logitech K760. It's Bluetooth and solar powered. I could quote some BS about wanting to reduce my carbon footprint, but the truth is, I'd be making that all up. I mean, sure, I know it's important and I'm glad I can reduce my use of batteries but beyond that, I got nothing.

That being said...if you have an occasion for a portable keyboard, I'd highly recommend one. I'm actually liking it better than the actual Apple keyboard I've been working with (and quite honestly, I hated the fact that I couldn't turn that one of so I had to keep loading batteries in it).

Seems a silly thing to start the blog with, I'm sure, but it was actually the thing that was pressing on my mind at the moment. And really, I suppose that's what it's all in the moment.

Speaking of the moment...tomorrow is kind of a big day for me.

I'm running the Warrior Dash. A 5K run and obstacle course in Butler, Ohio. I'm not going to lie...I'm nervous. Others who have run it have mentioned what a blast it is and have told me how I'll do fine and to just have fun with it. And that's what I'm planning to do.

I have some existential threads floating in my head right now. But to be honest, I'm trying just to get back in to the habit again. The writing habit.

And with that I leave you.


I hope to have some additional information and updates this week.


And here we go. Gonna have a brew tonight with my friends at Brew-Stirs and get some sleep before the big race tomorrow.


Sorry for the worse than normal ramblings tonight.

Marriage Material??

I had a friend call me today, fuming. I consider myself a good listener on most days. Considering that I was out of town on a work trip and doing absolutely nothing in my hotel room, my listening game was on-point.

She recounted the exchange that sent her off. I will spare you some of the more personal details, but the gist was, at one point, the dude-bro she was talking to flat out told her that she wasn’t marriage material.

Torn between wanting to be a supportive friend and being completely gobsmacked, I felt her frustration. No. That’s not quite right. I didn’t feel the same frustration she felt. I’m approaching what some consider middle age. I’m white. I’m primarily interested in women. Oh, and I have a penis., I can never truly feel the same frustration she was feeling. Or an anger that comes from the same place her anger came from. No matter how in touch I am witn my feminine side (whatever the fuck that actually means).

Instead, the frustration and anger I was feeling w…

Out of Sorts

Not sure what my deal is today. I got up this morning to go for a walk and it was spitting rain, but no biggie. My thriftstore Nikes were kind of hurting my feet, so that didn't help. But it felt good to go for the walk (other than the hurting feet). And it's all going well...and then I get into work and just turn into PMS-Man.  I don't know what my deal is. I just feel bitchy this morning and I'm not sure why. Yeah. That's all I got.

Post Con-Fusion

It's 5:40 AM on a Wednesday. I have been up for an hour. I have an outline for a work in progress that I intended to work on this morning. I was in the middle of a chapter that I started at lunch and had every intention of continuing this morning. But, much like me, it seems the characters wanted to sleep in today. They wanted to just hunker under the covers as the rain danced its hypnotic melody on my roof. The swoosh swoosh swoosh of the ceiling fan keeping time with the rest of the nocturnal orchestra.

So, I shifted gears. I am taking  a course on getting more words on the page. Something that I want to do need to do if I am to get all of these books that are floating around in my head out in to the world. It's not so much that I think the whole world will love and adore them, although I certainly hope that is the case. No, it's more the fact that it's getting crowded up there. I need to get these words on the page for my own sanity as much as anything else.
