Changing the Game

Not sure what to say on this topic, as I’m still figuring things out.

But I ditched the novel I was writing. Couldn’t find the magic in the story. In places, yes, but not in the over all game.

So, I’m changing the game. Going to do a bunch of stuff I don’t normally do. Working on more offbeat things. Don’t worry, your usual doses of Doc Ridler madness will also arriving. Two more Spar books, crazy collections, some literary junk. I ain’t going nowhere.

But right now, time to focus on developing some other skills, fill the tank, and rock and roll.

For on thing, I’m reading a lot of Japanese poetry. Why? Because it’s awesome.  Here’s one I read today that was pretty great.


I may live on

In the passing world

Never forgetting
