I set out to write about the effect #DnD had on my writing. Instead, it became an entry about how much it affected my life and who I am today...

The annual write-up for the annual writing retreat for those interested in reading about it (or seeing photos).

So far, every episode of Not about Lumberjacks has been fictional. Even the second episode, "Pride of the Red Card" blurred the lines of fiction and reality, with a coin flip as to what was real and what was made up. But this month's story, "Bobo," is almost entirely true.

With the exception of a name change and a scene involving a Big Mac, this is the story of the time I was a clown...

A good lesson in doing the thing you REALLY want to do...not simply what you believe will make a lot of money. The effort in this process is ridiculous!

A 4.5 minute peek at the real book that inspired the latest episode of Not about Lumberjacks.

The podcast I do with Shawn Kupfer turned 200 today. That's 200 episodes without ever missing a week.

I like what Shawn did with the sound design around 56:18 into the show.

In honor of one year of Not about Lumberjacks, it's a story sticking to my promise of never mentioning lumberjacks!

This time: When Erik Nilsson has a minor heart attack and is told to take some forced time off of work to recuperate, he finally reads a book left to him by his father much earlier in life. What he finds hidden among the pages changes him forever…

While I love all the new stories I've written ithis past year, this one might be my favorite. After gutting people with "Purvis" in September, I definitely wanted to do something much more uplifting. I'm really proud of this one.

Thanks to everybody who's listened to a story (or now -- 14), in the past year...

In two weeks, Shawn Kupfer and I will hit episode 200 of our weekly podcast. Today, though, marks the one-year anniversary of starting my solo show.

I intended to only write one or two new stories in the first year, but one can argue that I wrote 7. I started the show because it had been years since writing short fiction (novels took up my time), and that worked out well. I look forward to another year!

This month's Not about Lumberjacks behind-the-scenes look is a bit longer than usual, but it was a lot of fun. I sat down with Cynthia Faye Griffith to talk about what goes into creating an audio drama.

It was not a bad weekend in East Texas (camping in Daingerfield State Park).
