WordPress Theme Updates

Just a brief note that my blog is undergoing some cosmetic alterations and things may look funny or not load at all. Google’s search console has informed me that chunks of my site aren’t loading because WordPress is using some jQuery Migrate script that is interfering with some of this blog’s contents. Or something. Still […]

My Favorite Albums of 2017

Hey, it’s still the first week in January. That means there’s still time for me to pontificate on my favorite listens of last year. I’ll include the list at the end, with links to the album or artist’s Bandcamp site where possible. Another unexpected delight this year: I found myself buying more music from that […]

Scrivener 3: Compile Formatting for Ebook and Print

It’s been 2 weeks since the arrival of Scrivener 3, and I am pleased to report that so far, it has been an absolute pleasure to use. No crashes, no real surprises. It is a very solid release, so kudos and thank you to the team. I’ve had an item on my todo list for […]

Scrivener 3

scrivener 3 for macOS, stolen without shame from

With much fanfare and a website overhaul, Scrivener 3 was released to the world yesterday, November 20th, 2017. It’s a big update, and you should really read the manual (RTFM! specifically Appendix E) before committing to it. If you’re in the middle of NaNoWriMo and cranking on words, I’d recommend holding off until December. OR, […]

Today I have with me science fiction author, Felix R. Savage who generously agreed to sit down with me for a virtual interview.

Furtive Announcement

Hello. I’m afraid I don’t know how much time we have, so I must be brief. There’s a new science fiction anthology out, called Explorations: War. It’s a collection of stories set in the same shared universe as the Explorations: First Contact anthology. I think it’s pretty keen, and that’s not just because I’m one […]

Book 4 Progress Report, Puppo Edition


I have a couple of blog posts percolating, chiefly my next Scrivener Howto, but brain time is presently very precious. I have started work on Book 4, albeit a few days behind. We have a new dog, Zeke, who demands a lot of attention. And that’s is all right by me. We’re learning to cope […]

Writing with Scrivener Part 1

Or, how I stopped pantsing and got down with outlining. This week, I’m going to start the first in a series of posts about Scrivener, an invaluable tool for writing fiction. Maybe you’ve wanted to try or have done National Novel Writing Month and wanted to up your game. Maybe you write novels or screenplays […]

Audirvana 3

Last year, around this time, I was about a month into my iTunes replacement experiment with Audirvana+. I still get a lot of hits on those articles, so I thought it was time for a follow-up on how that’s going. That is especially relevant now that Audirvana has reached the shiny 3.0 milestone, with a […]
