Writing in the Summertime!

Dandelions Summer is here! I’m excited this month to spend a week at George Washington University at a Veterans Writing Project residency in poetry. I’ve started reviewing books for the US Review of Books (they actually pay their reviewers) and my first review will be this month. I’m also a contributor now for Outserve/SLDN Magazine. Working up more interviews for Three by Five also. This month Three by Five is taking a summer break but will return in July. This month is both GLBT Pride and the first time DoD has officially recognized that force wide – I’ll be doing some writing on that and in fact you’ll find something in this month’s issue of Outserve Magazine. June is also PTSD awareness month, so look for something a little later on the subject of PTSD. In between all this, I’m continuing Found poems using The Collected Stories of Jean Stafford,1970-The-Collected-Stories-of-Jean-Stafford-Featured though the Pulitzer Project is over for this year and have a YA novel first draft to complete. Summer will be busy! Please check out my video and if inclined, lend a little support.

Summer Almost Gone

Summer is almost gone and it has been packed with far too much non-writing time sucks. Much of June was prepping for my Army Reserve annual training which took up half of July. Had a good training expedition to an austere location in the mountains of California – that just means we were out in the boonies without the usual niceties of modern daily life. Upon return had a week to decompress and it was down to SOCAL to visit at Blizzard Entertainment and watch a friend get his 5 year service award (awesome sword) and four days at the mouseland. This month it was all about catching up with the toddler after being gone for so long the month before and next week vacation, again at mouseland only this time at the big one in Florida. After a month without electronics while in the boonies, getting back into the twitter and blog update groove has been slow. Next month I start a new graduate program in multimedia to update my creative skills with modern technology. What will a book look like in five, ten years? I aim to figure that out. Stay tuned.
