Surviving an Extroverted World, Pondering the Soft Apocalypse

Surviving an Extroverted World, Pondering the Soft Apocalypse

Nov 10, 2013

I hadn’t been to Europe in over ten years, so I was about due. Trips of this length have their drawbacks – costs being one, and exhaustion over the sheer logistics to get there being another. I’m pretty introverted, so navigating the astonishing mob of people en route to other places can be a nightmare. But if you want to live life to the fullest,...

Hiding About, With Bonus Creatures

Have gotten more done on new book in three days than I have in four weeks, which I suppose is the sign of any good writing retreat. I’m somewhere in North Carolina, enjoying very Pacific-Northwest-like weather. I also have limited access to wi-fi (mostly self-monitored, but the wi-fi really is kinda spotty), hence the radio silence. Also, they have these...

What’s On Your Bookshelf: Why I’m Still Holding Out On Buying an E-Reader

Dec 7, 2010

The local Books & Co. had several Nooks on display the other day. I’ve resisted e-readers for lots of reasons, but mostly because of Amazon’s weird “You bought it but we can take it away” thing. If I download a book, I want to download it like a PDF. A file that’s mine. No DRM. The idea that Amazon or a publisher can suddenly...

Homesteading in Dayton, Ohio

Dec 7, 2010

I lost my last job because of the banking crisis, but despite that week of terror, I’ve been largely shielded from the recession. I was beyond lucky to get offered a job after being unemployed a week. Health insurance freak-outs subsided soon after.  All around Dayton, stimulus money has inspired tons of construction projects. There are new parks,...
