A lot can change in a year, and yet, a year can speed by you so fast, leaving so much undone.

This time last year, I was looking back at what I had done since my last birthday, and making plans for how I was going to move forward over the next year. Looking at it now, it sure seems like a lot of the things I had planned out last year didn’t end up happening. At least, the way things developed certainly was not what I originally planned. Whether that will turn out to be for good or for ill, time will tell. Perhaps I’ll know next year. [click to continue…]

Welcome back to the eighth episode of the Balticon 47 Wrap up, proudly brought to you by Swimming Cat Studios. This week features the first to two readings that I was able to take part in at Balticon 47. Unlike last year, we’ve decided to publish the full reading and release it as a single episode. This year I was joined at the microphone by two excellent writers, PJ Schnyder, and Grig “Punkie” Larsen. This reading had been billed as a steampunk reading in the Balticon program, but didn’t exactly turn out that way. While each of us has written Steampunk at some time in the past, the reading itself ended up being a mixture of different genres.  [click to continue…]

Welcome to part seven of the Balticon 47 Wrap up. This week’s episode is from my other podcast, The Shrinking Man Project. It is a live Special episode featuring the return of three of last year’s guests, Starla HuchtonLauren “Scribe” Harris, and Veronica GiguereJustin Macumber was also scheduled to attend, but he was called home for an emergency, and unfortunately we didn’t find out that he’d left the con until after the recording. Like last year, This episode is a simultaneous release with The Shrinking Man Project. So, if you’re subscribed to both feeds, you’ll get the same episode twice. If you’re not subscribed to The Shrinking Man Project, you should check it out. There is lots of good content over there. The topic for this year was pulling out of a slump, both creatively, and in terms of keeping with your diet or exercise regimen. Show notes below the cut. [click to continue…]

Wow. Will you look at that. It’s July now. July. 2013 is half over. Halfway done. I’ve set some ambitious goals for the latter half of the year. Perhaps I should also take some time to take stock of what I’ve done so far. Let’s see how it breaks down… [click to continue…]
