Keeping track of programming projects over the years


Blog, Computers, Writing

I know for years and years I’ve teased different programming projects, among others, I’m working on here (hell, this website was initially a programming project–I wrote an entire blogging platform from scratch as a proof of concept; it was primitive, but I loved the software and only switch to WordPress as it was easier to […]

I Never Was Good at the Processes of Writing


Blog, Writing

I really need to find the motivation to finish my novel draft and then start outlining my Peace Corps book. I just can’t and I keep coming up with excuses for “better” things to do. Somebody please help. For example, last month I wanted to write 30,000 words to finish my novel. I started and […]

Project Advancements due to Open Source


Blog, Writing

I’ve been a supporter of the open source community for a long time. This project requires a lot of programming functions which I could spend weeks painstakingly researching and writing and debugging. While I’ve dabbled with the project here and there since the original spark in my mind, I’ve really come into it full force since stumbling across a few more pay versions of it. Consider it my way of giving back to a community who has given me so much already and hopefully spreading the reach of open source to new backers.

Working on Publishing


Blog, Writing

Back in college, I needed to put together a senior thesis for my creative writing degree. What came out of that was The Life of Charles Wright. While at the time I wasn’t completely happy with how it turned out, it has recently grown on me. I still think it needs a heavy hand of […]

Proposed Writing Retreat


Peace Corps, Writing

If you remember last year, I had an ambitious November. I wanted to take 30 days to make myself a better man, and I did. I wanted to do 100 push-ups and 100 sit-ups each day, and I did. I also wanted to complete NaNoWriMo, and I did. It was ambitious and by the end I was absolutely drained […]

Writing Short Things Again


Blog, Writing

I haven’t been doing a lot of writing lately, novel or blog. I don’t have much of a reason other than I’ve been going into school for a few hours this past week. Actually, that makes for a great excuse. If I’m going in to school, I’m not going to drink coffee which is essential […]

A Novel Idea


Writing

Hey, hey guys. Guess what? This notebook: Is completely full of my novel. That’s right, all 96 pages (front and back) have been written in. Don’t believe me? Take a look for yourself: Now I have roughly 40,000 words left to write in my new notebook. I’ve kinda been busy lately. I mean, in a […]

Excuse Thursday


Peace Corps, Writing

It’s time for everybody’s favorite game here, Danny Makes Excuses!  I’m fully aware that I said I’d type up a bunch of my novel yesterday and update the word count but other things got in my way. It’s fine, I’ll hopefully get to it later today. First off, yesterday I was having trouble with WordPress. It […]
