Happy Presidents Day

Or at least I hope it was for all of you.  For me, it involved a lot of writing–I have two papers due this week, and then of course I had 1,000 words to write in addition to that.  I had wanted to get something posted on the web page today, but I just didn’t have time.  In other news, does anyone know what the symptoms of carpel tunnel syndrome are, because I think I might be getting that.  Too much typing.  But the papers are almost done, and the creative writing went well today, so I guess it was […]

And so it begins

Well, it’s official now.  I started writing Ichabod today–just finished with my first thousand words.  If I keep that up every day but Sundays, I should be finished with it by the end of June.  I think that’s a fairly good goal, especially considering I’ll have to take a break in the middle to rewrite Lesana (book #8 of mine).  It would be four months, and that’s assuming it’s a 100,000 word story.  We’ll see what it actually ends up being. In other news, I went out dancing last night with my wife and Brandon and his wife Emily.  Neither

My First Book

I’ve posted up the text of my first book–written when I was in third grade. Take it for the comic relief it’s intended as. If I had had a mind for marketing back then, I should have tried to get it published. That would have show that Paolini kid a thing or two. Maybe I could claim I’m still a third grader, and see if I could still try that route. No–that would mean I’d have to shave my beard off. Who ever heard of a bearded third grader?

Sweeney Todd

So last night my wife was busy with homework. I should have beeen busy with homework, but I haven’t been going to school since 1996 without learning how not to do homework. I probably have a PhD in that by now. Anyway, I decided to watch one of the movies I got from Orem Public Library (my place of employment, for those of you who don’t know). OPL has over 25,000 movies, and I’m there all the time. This makes me feel like I have over 25,000 movies in my personal collection, especially since I can check out as many

New Page on my Website

Morning everybody.  (Or all two of the people who might actually read this.)  I just wanted to let everyone know I posted a new page up on my site this morning.  It’s a Q&A with Albert Packard (my alter ego) about Cavern of Babel–that crazy-cool alpaca book that I wrote for Diamond Triple C Ranch.  Swing on over and check out the page, and if there are any other burning questions you feel need to be answered, ask them here, and I’ll make sure no stone is left unturned. Other than that, I don’t have much to report right now.
