I want to run a give-away soon, but I’m having trouble coming up with something useful to give away. I don’t want to just give away something generic. If I do something like an iTunes Gift Card, lots of people will sign up for the give away but they might not be interested in my … Continue reading I’m thinking of running a give-away [2017-09-05]
Working on big things this week but I wanted to show you a cool site I found. It’s called We Work Remotely, and it’s job listings for writers, programmers, and some other fields. Some of the listings for writers are contract work, and some of them are for part- and full-time jobs with benefits. I’ve mentioned … Continue reading One place to find writing work [2017-08-23]
I’ve been getting a lot of constructive feedback on both my website and this newsletter and I’ve been thinking about it. The most common thing I get is that things are confusing. My site says I’m a cyberpunk author, and it has some of my writing, but it mostly seems focused on teaching writing business … Continue reading I’ve gotten some feedback on this newsletter [2017-08-15]

I’m going to show … Continue reading Want $500 from Acorns for doing practically nothing?
New from the Blog… Actually, there’s nothing new on the blog this week. Over the past 5 days, I’ve been traveling and working a conference for my day job. I’ve been working on a couple really cool blog posts that will be tutorials with pictures and stuff. I’m really excited to get those out to … Continue reading Take a break, you earned it. 2017-03-06 Newsletter
New from the Blog… People are going to forget about you. They’re going to forget about your games, your art, your programming, and you. Pretty terrifying right? No one wants to hear that. Sorry for being so harsh, but you’re not doing anything to remind them who you are. That’s why you need to … Continue reading Consistency is the key to success. 2017-02-27 Newsletter
There is one item of G.I. gear that can be the difference between a live grunt and a dead grunt. Socks, cushion, sole, O.D. green. Try and keep your feet dry when we’re out humpin’. I want you boys to remember to change your socks wherever we stop. – Lieutenant Dan, Forest Gump Things change, … Continue reading Don’t forget to change your socks. ~ 2017-02-23 Newsletter

The light shining above you is so bright and focused on your face that you can’t see more than a foot away from you in any direction. The detectives lean in and slide photographs across the table.
