Just finished binge watching all 8 episodes of Stranger Things over two consecutive nights. Definitely one of the best shows I've seen this year, and one of the best coming out of Netflix. Would highly recommend to fans of the surreal, sci-fi/horror/mystery genre.

8741 words completed on my current WIP.

8741 acceptable words written by me, my greatest critic and my most resilient enemy.

I know some of you gals and guys out there can pump that kinda wordage out in a day, but for me, this is pretty big.

You are not shit, but I see the struggle. Feel the same way at time when it comes to my art. You'll get over the hump, I know it.

As far as I can tell, we work as hard as we do to spend on an overly-expensive lifestyle which helps pads the bank accounts of uber-wealthy investors.
 
"No seriously, why are we still working?

[...] the economist John Maynard Keynes predicted that, by now, people in technologically advanced societies wouldn't need to work much at all.

In Australia, by the new millennium, many full time employees were working more than their grandparents had.

What happened? Did technology fail to deliver the gains Keynes expected?

On the contrary. Technological advancement outstripped even the giddy imaginations of futurists from a century ago. We can grow food, dig up minerals, make fridges and bridges, move things and ourselves around the planet and share knowledge and information much faster with a fraction of the workforce it once took."
No seriously, why are we still working? Mike Dowson explains in simple terms the great con that keeps you chained to the wheel. This may be an opportune moment to consider the question. Especially if you’re not actually working. You may have retired. Perhaps you’ve just left university, considering your options. Perhaps you’re taking a welcome break. MaybeMore

Walked outside one morning to find a nest had been built beneath the shelter of our porch, atop the curve of a gutter drain.

For a couple weeks, we'd see the momma and daddy robin resting atop the nest, fleeing (but not too far) whenever the screen door was opened and one of us stepped outside with the dog.

Always, the mother bird would watch from a nearby branch, directing a steady stern tweeting in the direction of the perceived predators.

Soon enough, tiny beaks began to emerge from the top of the nest, one then two, poking at the open air before diving down again within the safety of the grassy nest walls.

The hatchlings grew fast, each day a little bigger, a little bolder, standing in full view atop the rim of its former incubation chamber, impatiently awaiting the return of mother and a fresh meal. Perfectly formed tiny stumpy birds.

And then one morning, only an empty nest remained.

I can only hope they learned to fully fly in time to avoid an otherwise certain demise.

Sweet Home Chicago

It was nice going back to my roots today, briefly passing through my old stomping grounds.

I flirted with the idea of visiting my old place of employment, chickening out at the last moment, instead only glancing at the storefront from afar.

Felt like a pilgrim on my journey to my mother's house, retracing the well-worn paths of youth, taking the same buses, the same train routes that I had ridden day in and day out.

A lot has changed - new construction, new signs, new fancy bike lanes and a new transit fare system - not too much, but enough to make me feel like an outsider, a visitor, a tourist.

That's good to know, I can't believe how old he is! I think living with Mom has made him more prone to biting...

Introduction
I am a writer of fiction, first and foremost.  

When I was in high school, I had a creative writing teacher who went around the room, telling each of us students what category our writing styles best fit into.  I was pegged as a horror writer.  I shrugged it off, said it was a phase.  It has been many years since then and the phase is still going strong.

Always, though, do I strive for literary fiction even if it happens to fall into a genre.  Aside from the aforementioned horror (I have been working on my zombie apocalypse opus for nearly nine years now), I also enjoy writing space operas and stories built around character rather than plot.

Sometimes I write poetry though it's not very good.

Like any good writer, I greatly enjoy reading though I had fallen out of the practice and only recently have I begun, once again, to delve into the literary world on a regular basis.  And so, I am always on the lookout for new tales and works of prose and verse to consume.

Aside from all the word stuff, I love trains.  Love watching them, love riding them. I think for me, at least part of it is the romance of the journey - someday I would love to travel the U.S. and the world by train.  

And if I fail to cut it in the world of literature (and even if I make it, really), I would eagerly turn to a career on the rails.  Seriously, don't question my love for trains.

Cats are fine too.
