Stay The Course

Hey y’all. I toyed with scrapping everything and starting over with this little ol’ website of mine because I haven’t been here in a while, but then I thought that would be dumb for a multitude of reasons. And also, once I got into the whole redesign aspect of it, I just wasn’t in the…

Not White Enough To Be White. Not Asian Enough To Be Asian.

As I revamp a story that I began over a decade ago and mash into my current novel idea…an idea I’ve been presently plotting and outlining before I begin the tumultuous writing game, I find myself pondering the world of genetics, ethnicity, and evolution. I wonder about the impact of cultural differences and skin color…

We Fucking Made It To 2018… Barely

Hey all! So, uh… 2017, huh? Yeeesh. I don’t know about all y’all, but I am so looking forward to the new year. Personally, 2017 did not go as planned no matter how much I tried to wrangle it into submission. So, I succumbed to just surviving the year. And if that’s all you have…

I See Skin Color And You Can Too!

This is an open letter to a small minority of folks who say “I don’t see color.” or why can’t we just say “We’re all humans.” or some other phrase that they emit with open arms that sounds all shiny and rainbow-y on the surface, but deep down, it’s just…so wrong. While it may seem a…

Do The Thing That Scares You

I have been on autopilot for the past couple days, feeling as though I am having an out of body experience as I watch myself go through the motions of normal, everyday life while allowing all the information that was hurled at me the previous few days to slowly leak its way into the processing…

Who Did You Think Of When You Voted?

As the presidential term of our 45th president looms ahead and we approach 100 days of a gloomy, frightening USA, I have often wondered how do his voters feel now? I know the diehard conservatives who are all ‘America first!” and “Yeah, fuck women’s rights!” and “Get those foreigners out of our country!” probably still think…

Time To Write Or Get Off The Pot

How the fuck is it past mid-April already!? Arrrgh. So much for a whiz-bang start to the year. I was hoping that 2017 would be less stressful than 2016, but so far, it’s been about the same. Yeah… I’m hoping beyond hope right now that we’re on an upswing though.. that some fucking stars or…

Fuck, I’m Tired.

I’m tired. Tired of life. Tired of being an adult. Tired of being tired. Tired of carrying what feels like the entire weight of an elephant in problems upon my achy shoulders. Some days, it’s a baby elephant. Other days, it’s like a papa elephant. Always a goddamn elephant. And yes, baby elephants are fucking…

We Are All Different. We Are All The Same.

“Go back to where you came from.” Such a vile statement. Such a statement that I thought would maybe be phased out of our dialogue. Such a statement that has sadly made a resurgence lately. Let me first say my intention is not to pit whites against minorities here. If you have never had this…

Hello, 2017. Let’s Do This.

Man, I did real bad with blogging last year. Seven published posts. Seven. Seven’s a good number and all. One of my favorite numbers, in fact. It’s the best number. There is no better number. (Sorry not sorry… I couldn’t resist.) But, seven posts is not nearly enough writing for one whole year. What can…
