Happy 10th day of 2016
Where does time go? I don't know, but I wish I had a better handle some days. In update news: We drove back from Colorado/Wyoming/Kansas after a decently nice vacation. Mostly quiet, as per usual with our families, so I am only recovering from the drive and...

Possibly a summation of science fiction posts this year: http://www.falconsfocus.com/p/science-fiction-writing-posts.html

Though I might write more.

Course Correction
“Course correction filed. Target centered. Time to transition, five minutes thirty-four seconds.” The light synthetic voice droned, obviously bored with simple things, but it took an edge that Jordan didn’t like, “Captain,” A word without much of the tonali...

Allergy
John studied himself in the mirror as best he could through tears. Red, puffy eyes stared back at him, a running nose already leaked just a minute after using a tissue. He couldn't do his job well if he always looked like this. He readjusted his coat and a ...

Update for Week Three
Saturday I hit the halfway mark of 25,000 words and Sunday I managed to reach 28,000 which is much more than I ever thought I would write. The toughest part about writing is to continue writing. Often I want to go back and edit, or focus on something a bit ...

Weekly Novel Writing Update
Or "WeNoWrUp" for NaNoWriMo. This week I never got ahead of the writing. I started the week with about 8000 words which was only 5000 words behind. Monday evening I pounded out 2000 words in a couple scenes that are quite important to the plot, and then fol...

Space Jellies
“I can just see it now, first alien species discovered. We’ll be famous!” Yasir stood up from his station, arms waving in early celebration. “Shut up and monitor them. We need to start getting behaviors. Also I would rather not attract their attention. Keep...

Star Wars Review
Disclaimer: Reading the following will most certainly SPOIL certain plot elements or SPOIL your excitement to see the movie. SPOILERS ahead. This movie goes loosely into my category where the Hobbit movies are, however, I was hoping that it might be a bit c...

Running is not allowed
“Running is not allowed.” This was the third time and much louder. Jordan gave up ignoring the the otherwise unperturbed voice in his ear. “Yeah, yeah. Only on treadmills. Shouldn’t you be asking me to walk?” “I tried but it seems your receptiveness to well...

NaNoWriMo Conquered
I made it. I wrote 50,000 words. Now I need to write a few more parts and then start editing. I finished the last day writing just over five-thousand words. My fingers flew and I think I put down some very good scenes. I have let it sit for over a week so t...

The Focus has Changed
I am happy to announce that I have dropped the "blog" part of the web address in favor of my own domain: falconsfocus.com. Of course this is much like a vanity plate at the moment while I figure out what I am going to do next, but I am enjoying it thanks to...

Writing Update and Other Things
I have ten things to write about that aren't part of NaNoWriMo, of course. My story isn't quite on the rocks word-wise, but I just wrote a post and have a few other things that are on my mind thanks to work and church. Suffering is Not for the Faint of Hear...

With their move out of the long time spot by the Waiakea pond, Miyo's has drastically improved decor and a bit better service. Gone are the green plastic lawn chairs and cheap plastic tables. The new furniture is all of the same type, if a bit large and clunky, it is a large step up. Unfortunately moving away from the pond means it doesn't have any good views. With the move service is on the upward swing as they have a few new servers (though they are still learning the craft) but it is jam packed and I have seen many potential dinner parties turned away at the door. We've managed to reserve a seat an hour before showing up. If you want to have some excellent Japanese food that isn't just sushi, and with a Hilo twist I would suggest reserving a table the day before.

Very good food and service. Always a favorite place to go with a group of people. And 24 hours means 24 hours, except the one day a month of deep cleaning. They keep clean through the rest of the month too.

This was an excellent place, plenty of good, well-made food for a reasonable price. We will be going back again.

I am sure it is great but I was looking for a laundromat, not a dry cleaning place.
