You’re not supposed to be here… This is the old blog, before I moved from WordPress to Blogger, I kept it just in case… Nothing more to see here… If you managed to find it, I’m impressed!
Erasmus Ghoul, The Bones of Akusilaus, Brant Ilyavich, and Other Vignettes…
Now that I have you here, I will ask you a question, and you should attempt to answer truthfully… First, what is your favorite word? And are you happy? Are you happy when you write? What Are Your Happiest Writing Memories? In terms of happy writing memories, I have none specifically, though I am often […]
Woah! It’s another new year…! Actually, it’s March, much too late to wish you a “Happy New Year”. My life has changed in many amazing ways, and I’ve been up to some cool stuff. New Look… I spent the last two weeks making some long overdue changes to the website. The “About” page has been […]
New Project: The Rondout Chronicles (with a small SG&NP update)
Despite everything that happened last year, I managed to graduate with a BA in classics and religious studies. What a boon! It was an arduous final semester–one in which I was not able to work much on Sweet Grass and Noxious Poppies, which now sits at chapter 22 (I had reached 20 last year). Despite […]
Hymn to Orange
Of the many colors that appear to the naked eye, orange is my favorite. This son of Red and Yellow is a possessor of fierce intent, whose domain lay, not in distant places, but in distance itself. For starters, there is a well-known fruit, who shares in the name of our bright and exuberant friend—describing […]

Le Grand Alexandnoir
Sucking on the leftover ice of an end-of-the-day brandy, I sat at my desk, ignoring the Kabbalist, Confucian, and Ancient Greek assignments laid out before me (for the time being). Years of academe had brought me more questions than answers. The one vexing me then seemed greater than the others, so to say. It was […]
Scumble Pie – (Sweet Grass & Noxious Poppies Update)
I was thinking about the Gumby Movie this morning. There’s this musical number at the end of the film–Gumby has this girlfriend, she’s made out of blue clay–which makes sense because he’s green. Anyway, the refrain goes “Take me away, O Gumby! You do something to my chemistry!” This is really special to me, and […]
Hi, Hi, Howdy!
This is my official “writer’s blog”, where I publish updates on my work, and just sort of reflect on the nature of reality. As you may have noticed, visitors to this page are greeted by the happiest snake anyone has ever seen. He’s kind of based off of a green parrot snake, but really, he’s […]
