Two Steps Back
Y es, one might think that things always work out this way-two steps back for every one step forward. But, in this case, I think a couple steps back is just what I needed. I recently posted an excerpt of a story I'm working on. It was an idea really, in dra...

Advice anyone? Need your opinion or advice on the development of a character in the rewrite of a previous novel.

Okay, I admit, the editing in this video is atrocious. I was trying to cut this thing down below two minutes. I don't know why.

I thought this song, "Duckhouse" by Middlemilk, would be appropriate for a video about our new ducklings. Well... some chicks too.

Pen Pals and letter- writing. What a great idea.

Story
Tagline
A consumate dreamer and procrastinator. I know, a less than desirable combination.
Introduction
I am an old soldier, now reformed to backyard farmer, writer, blogger and aviation systems trainer. Although working on it, I've yet to earn the title of gentleman.

Things that interest me? Writing in numerous genres but mostly suspense, science fiction (speculative) and mystery. Outside of my full-time job, I love everything to do with aquaponic gardening and suburban homesteading. I often blog or post youtube videos about these subjects along with updates on my small typewriter collection, rants about our world's current state of affairs, surviving a zombie apocalypse or the antics of my backyard chickens.
Bragging rights
Although unconfirmed, I believe I hold the record for most head injuries sustained within my extended family.
