Off the Top of My Head
Chapter 1 High station rode in its Legrange five orbit as the combined Earth fleet assembled into a low geosync orbit. The station glittered as the shadow of its home world passed over it.

This is my portion of the Eulogy for my Father. To contemplate my father, I have to think of my mother, as the two of them were inseparable. Single memories are few. He and I used to wargame. Consider a board with hexagons on a map that is of a historical battle. Little squares ofContinue reading “My Dad”
Here I am waiting on inspiration, or my editor to finish my second manuscript, trying very hard to work on other stories I have drafted. Staring at a blank page is daunting. The first word runs around my brain as all the distractions in the world chase it. Nothing stalls writing more than telling yourselfContinue reading “Patience Or Procrastination”
A quote from the musical Rent states something like, “The opposite of war isn’t peace. It’s creation.” So here I am speaking about creating things.

I do feel that I may be doing too much at once, andContinue reading “Start And Stop And Start Again”

The week hasn’t been very productive and my current working story is going a little left. Working through these issues can be daunting, but writing goes on. Just as this isn’t the post I meant for today, that one wont come out of my brain, but still I write. Tonight is a gaming night, myContinue reading “Happy Friday”
Tom Smith wrote a song called “I want my music on Napster.”, back when Napster was a file sharing service Tom is a Filk singer with several compellations to his name.
