A few years ago, as one of my buddies and I were working through a particularly tenacious set of problems at work, we hit on the idea of putting together a blog to take notes on the problems we found and how we got around them. Well, now he’s gone and I’m…

#WATWB, Katherine Switzer & the Boston Marathon, this week on my #wordpress #blog

It’s the last Friday of the month again and that means it’s time for another installment of the We Are The World blogfest – that monthly post where I try to point out something positive in a world that sometimes seems to be going mad. In truth, it’s…

Little things make big things in #writing and #martial arts, this week on my #wordpress #blog

My old Kenpo instructor (now retired) used to say, “Kata is how the system expresses itself.” It was one of those little things he’d say that made perfect sense at the time as long as you didn’t think too hard about it. Later, I’d wake up at 3am or 4am or…

#bookreview Playing God with @shitijsharma24 and the mudmen, this week on my #wordpress #blog

Mudmen: The Quest for Humanity is one of the more unique books I’ve read. It starts with a question I think everyone has asked themselves at some point or another point in their lives: could I do a better job than God? Don’t worry, the jury is still out…

#badreviews and #writing, this week on my #wordpress #blog.

If you’re working on a book, I hate to break it to you, but you’re going to get negative feedback. It can range from critiques about the plot or the editing or the characters or any number of things. The first negative review stings. After all, you’ve…

#writing what you're writing while you're writing it. This week on my #wordpress #blog

A long time ago, while I was studying for my Green Belt in Kenpo, I was a cocky dude who thought he knew everything. Newsflash, I was wrong, but that’s beside the point. While I working on a technique (Breaking Wing, I think), I kept rushing to the…

#selfdefense that doesn't work. This week on my #wordpress #blog.

It seems there’s still a large contingent of people out there who will believe you can use car keys to turn yourself into Wolverine. The set-up is simple and there’s a certain elegance to it. The theory is this: you usually have car keys handy, so why not…

A little good in the world, #watwb, this week on my #wordpress #blog

This is my first full-on We Are The World Blogfest post. The idea behind #WATWB was to say in even though it sometimes seems like it, the world isn’t really going to hell in a hand-basket. The bottom line is this: it seems dark and shitty, but the world…

#bookreview - Val Tobin's #paranormal #romance with witches this week on my #wordpress #blog

Val Tobin has a thing for the occult. She handles it well and makes the worlds of magic and UFO abduction feel real and tangible. Having tried to do this myself, I can tell you it’s no mean feat to integrate the paranormal with the mundanity of day-to-day…
