Eureka!
I'm curled in a new position on the couch in my new "space." I wait patiently with my pad and pen, because any minute now, my eyes focused so intently on the blank page will issue forth the work of literary genius. Yes, all I have to do is stare the paper down like a hawk, like undressing a hot babe with my eyes - that should be enough to move my hand to action and my head to art. Any minute now.

I was standing on a hill
I was standing on a hill in Michigan Under the shade of a maple tree Sheltered from the bright warm summer sun The grass rolled all the way down to the bottom Saturated in green and yellow It reminded me of those photos from the Sixties The ones that are off color as if from a pale dream The air smelled warm and carefree And the wind forced the grass to lean forwards As the sparse clouds went on their way

Chapter 1 (Summer '07) Under the tree shade We hid from the world. I couldn't help smiling For this fairy princess. Chapter 2 (Fall '08) It's so strange to be In this place of My memory.

The Year I Wasted
The thought of it is a Breath of fresh Air released from Choking lungs and battered heart. I stand and watch as The rain drifts by: The storm is gone, Moved on to some other quarry. The burden relieved as I Shrug off my load is Like a blessing. And yet I wish I could go back And live the year I wasted on you.

Village
I open the door to a pure morning Each of which follows like the one before it: My skies are pale blue and my street is pale grey, The houses arranged by rank and file in salute. I know without looking that my neighbors Have joined me to greet the day, A hundred individual beings Coordinated like clockwork. Cogs turn as I descend my porch steps; The patpatpat of my shoes are the only sound. And in this way I meet my neighbor on the cobblestone; He is my brother. We are all brothers in this place, I am We. How I wish you were here.

Remember when we were young, And we ran to the silence of the glass water To escape the cultic chanting? It was the night we first met, when you laughed Because I was very strange. Remember when the paper moon opened, When your flaxen hair fell against my shoulder, And I was sitting on the grass floor Away from the cheers at the soccer game? Our team lost anyway. Remember when I gave up signing in To the night book? Instead we started signing our names On the windows of the bus in the rain Shortly before it got stuck in the mud. Remember when you didn’t cry to say goodbye, Because you had no idea That I was not like just

Watch the sun rise
Streaks of daylight pour through the cold stone mouths of Celtic archways A girl and her flock wander the riverside at the low point of the valley.  The walls of the Highlands are guarded by a fearsome god. The wind glides through the great basin. The clouds sail indifferently past. The sheep start to scatter, the dog nips them back.

Bee and Puppycat: The Kickstarter!
I don't know how many of you have seen this beautiful cartoon, but it's the creation of Adventure Time storyboard creator Natasha Allegri. It's pretty wild, kind of like a cross between Adventure Time and Sailor Moon in the most weirdly fitting way. And it has a Kickstarter. Which is in trouble! The trend isn't looking very good. It might make its goal, but I don't know. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/frederator/bee-and-puppycat-the-series Check out the video and do what you can. If not pitching in, just spread the word! This show has gotta happen.
CALLING ALL STEAMPUNK FANS!
Hey guys, as some of you know I run a pop culture and entertainment blog called Hopped on Pop. I don't know who here reads it, but those of you who do probably know I don't write merely pop news or reviews; I also do critical analysis pieces and stuff. Lately I've been interested in the idea of writing an article about the steampunk subculture, but unfortunately I know nothing about it. I was wondering if anyone would be up to telling me a thing or two about the defining traits and conventions of the genre, what got them to be interested in steampunk, whether they attend and participate in conventions, why they think it appeals to them and/o
New project
Hello, just thought I'd write an update. I hate having years without entries. I am working on a new project, which will hopefully be a new novel. As with everything else, I hesitate to post anything about it here because of publishing issues, but it's well on its way as a first draft at 155 pages. It feels great to be REALLY going on a real story again.
