The Summer Vacay
This is the time of year when an old man's thoughts of fancy turn to the summer vacation. It's when he can truly stretch out his mind and do very little in the way of productive endeavors. If you're like me, your summer is well underway and can be expected ...

The Mother of All Writing Processes, Part 3
Yes, I know it's been more than a week since I ended a blog post with "next week..." but with a holiday weekend the next week and then necessary travels, it has been difficult to make the time and also connect to a stable wi-fi. However, rather than abandon...

Coming to terms: Blog-reality vs Life-reality
Yes, I know it's been a while. Don't worry; I have excuses. Mostly the timing of events in the month of April left me off-balance as far as putting up blog posts. Then things happened: bad things, awful things, and I was numb and unable to find the words to...

The Mother of All Writing Processes, Part 2
Remember that Writing Process thing from last week?  First you get an idea, then you write it. Simple, isn't it?  If you're writing an essay for a class , just follow the basic pattern that was outlined in ancient days by one cool Greek dude named Aristotle...
