5 To Try


List of five things I’ve never done (successfully) as a writer that I’d like to try:

1. Write a western.

2. Write a comic. (Need not be an ongoing – could be a mini-series or a one shot).

3. Write a television pilot.

4. Write a short story by hand.*

5. Write for an ongoing television series.

* Have done this, but not since I was sixteen years old. My hand tends to cramp up. Note my emphasis on doing something “successfully.” For my purposes, success indicates getting paid… not because I’m money obsessed, but because a paycheck is an indicator of professional level work. 

At the moment I’m not working on any of those things. I’ve got my hands full working on a few short story ideas and researching an idea for a novella. But hey, a guy can dream right?

The Call of Lovecraft


​So a couple of weeks ago an anthology came out that included a short story I wrote called The Clearing. It was a ton of fun to write and pretty surreal seeing something I wrote in print.
My friend Greg's blog included a short piece that I contributed​ on the writing of the story. Lovecraft Promo.
You can pick up a copy of the book currently on amazon. It's also available for your tablet of choosing.  The Call of Lovecraft.
