Arranging to be Punched

I love writing fiction. I love the world of Ghost Punchers. So I’ve smashed these two loves together like a pair of Siamese twins joined at the fist in order to present a bit of ghost-punching flash fiction. If you enjoy it, please share it! (You can find previous ghost-punching flash fiction here and here.) The Arrangement…

Here’s Your Stinking November Fiction!

When I looked up on Friday, I realized that November was nearly over, and I had no fiction to show for it. I was failing National Just Write Some Fiction Already Month — but I wasn’t about to go down without a fight. So I picked a fight in the form of 500 words (or…

Wecome to NaJuWriSoFiAlMo!

As long-time readers are probably aware, I tilt at the windmill of National Novel Writing Month every other year or so. Sometimes I successfully dump 50 thousand words of questionable quality onto the digital page. Most of the time I don’t. And I’ve never been fully pleased with the result. This will not a be…

NaNoFailure

National Novel Writing Month is over, and I have nothing to show for it. Okay, that’s not true. I have over 30 thousand words to show for it, as well as a killer outline I feel really good about, but it’s it’s not National Outline Writing Month is it? I didn’t finish the book. I…

Punching November Right in the Ghost

Fine. At first I was all, “Oh, I forgot how much I love writing fiction,” and November was like, “Hey, it’s National Novel Writing Month, you want to whip out a short, bad novel?” and then my ever-sagacious wife said, “You should write something about Ghost Punchers,” and so fine — fine — I’ll write…

As I mentioned earlier this month, one of my ridiculously short stories was accepted for publication in an upcoming anthology from Indie Authors Press. And now, as I promised then, I’m posting a link to where you can buy your own copy of  Spooky Halloween Drabbles 2015 on Amazon. One item I neglected to mention…

Back in the Saddle

I’m a writer. It says so on my business card, so you know it’s official. But while I’ve been filling my clients’ inboxes with world-building guides, game design documents, and RPG sourcebooks, it’s been quite a while since I’ve written any actual fiction–you know, the stuff folks assume you produce when you claim the title…
