It's Finally Here

Hey, World. Just wanted to let all of you know that my first book is now available! Again!

For the past several months, I’ve been working in fits and spurts on revisiting the Big Book of Forewords with some much needed editing work, but in the process I just realized that (a) I wasn’t happy with some sections, and (b) I wanted to inject a little new blood into the mix. Put those two things together and they equal my slogging through the trenches of old writing, and then doing some pruning before buckling down and coming up with brand-new forewords for ye lot. That’s right, actual new content! Forewords that weren’t there before! Exclamation! So what should have been a fairly quick assignment turned into actual work, and therefore delays that could be quantified by the term “months”.

Howdy, Folks. Remember Me?

So it would seem that it’s been a while since my last post, and for that I sincerely apologize to all of you (especially you in the back, Ted). That’s just procrastination taken to a ridiculous extreme, and my new year’s resolution is to make sure that I keep my procrastination well within the bounds of societal norms, which for blogs is currently no more than 7 fortnights between self-indulgent posts.

Hey, speaking of self-indulgence…

Our New Year, My New List

I’ve always liked the idea of kicking off the year with a clean slate of priorities and ideals, but I also find it very impractical. When your resolutions include vague, unquantifiable words such as “more”, “less”, “better”, “healthier” and “sexier” (all of which are terms I would normally use in regards to my blog posts), it’s no wonder that people just as quickly stop their goals as they start them. Am I doing “more” and “better”? “More” and “better” than what? What I think I should be doing… what I did last year at this time… what these directions are telling me to do? Instead, I would like to make a to-do list for the year.

My New Nemesis

In my on-again, off-again attempts to give this running thing a try, I’m currently in the middle of a decent on-again phase. And I’ve decided to set myself a couple of goals in order to stir up some competitive/pride juices to keep things fueled. And now that I’m blogging about it (which is what responsible geeks do when the world needs to know their every thought and movement), I’m accountable to literally tens of people to keep myself on the straight and narrow jogging path in the park across the street.
