What inspires me to write

What inspires me to write

Ok, after being asked in a different thread what inspires me to write, I decided it’d be a cool thing to ask everyone – so what inspires you to write, create art, or make music? I write because I must. At this point I’m quite addicted to the printed word, and any author will tell […]

Another Monday

Another Monday

So here we are, another Monday arrived, and a very radical mood change for the better. Despite the issues we’re facing today (you’ll hear about those in a sec) all is right with the world. Why? Because Trish is home and we’re cleaning house. In fact, I’m writing this between bouts of deep-cleaning the fridge. […]

Tales from the Convenience Store: Officer Friendly

So there was this drunk… Saturday a couple of weeks ago I had the dubious pleasure of working the afternoon/early evening shift. It was hot, as Texas weather usually is during the late summer, so we were selling massive quantities of beer. Amidst the hustle and bustle of rapid fire transactions I looked out into […]

Tales from the Convenience Store 3

This one’s a bit dated, having occurred about 4 days after Katrina. Episode 3 – Be Prepared It was a hot, dry, dusty afternoon outside as I stood working the 1pm-9pm, the toughest shift for the store all week. It’s me, myself, and I manning the register, listening to the complaints of ultra high gas […]

What is it about anger

Ok, screw cleaning house – this mood has given me inspiration, so it’s time to write a bit. What is it about anger that so supercedes all other emotions? Pure rage when unchecked can cause a person to destroy not only everything they love, but also everyone they love, and all they’ve worked so hard […]

By the way

By the way, I’ve found a local published author (who is also the mechanic who fixed my water pump). He gave a few tips that helped him write his first 2 novels, one being to find the time of day I’m most creative and write during that time. So here I sit at 12 noon […]

So we’re picked up at the hotel

So we’re picked up at the hotel at noon by the lead attorney on our case and taken to the firm’s office in New Orleans. We’re briefed on what’s to take place in the mediation the next day, returned to the hotel, and turned loose to explore and partake of the saturnalia that is the […]

I guess the way to tell this tale is from the beginning

It’s now 11:11pm on Thursday. I’ve been home for about 30 minutes now and got the car (and all the souveniers) unloaded – the drive took a bit longer than expected since we stopped for (yet another) celebratory dinner en route to the house. I guess the way to tell this tale is from the […]

Tales from the Convenience Store

Greetings and Hallucinations Kudos to the Eggman for getting the ball rolling with this wonderful occasional Blog. Being the lazy kinda guy I am combined with putting in entirely too many hours at my job in the C-Store, and the fact that I’ve never considered doing one for myself until he suggested it, set it […]
