A Writing Update

Posted by Rob on 4th September 2016 in Coding, Other Stuff, Writing |

Well, folks, it’s been a while! But in the time between then and now, things have been afoot. My third short story, pending for quite some time, is inching closer to publication, and I have — as ever — a couple out there that seem to be lingering with markets (and at least one that’s […]

Brain Bite #17

Posted by Rob on 5th November 2015 in Brain Bites, Writing |

Well, it’s been a while since the last one — I’ve been busy. Work here, writing there, and a schedule that I let run rampant. More recently, I’ve gotten a handle on that, and the necessity of days off (which I had begun to neglect — but a month without any days off will really […]
