"A bolt of lightning flashed down a short way beyond the gate. The pine hissed and cracked, exploding into flame. The rain, try as it might, could not put the fire out."

"You'd better not be alone
When you see the sky grow dark
And the waves grow tall

When the sun sets on a stormy sea
And the waves crash on a salty shore
And the night will find you
No matter where you are."

"That's gonna be uhh... you know uhh... fascinatin' transition."

"Alera spit the rain out of her mouth and brushed the porcelain-blond hair from her eyes. After half a moon of rain her cloak had turned into nothing more than a sopping wet burden, and it became pointless to keep the hood up. She made a mental note to get her coin back from the trader who had sold it to her as "a right marvel, rain, snow, hail; ain't nuffin' gonna get frough dis' here garment." "

Trying to train myself to say "I enjoyed/did not enjoy this film because..." rather than "this movie was good/bad" is really difficult.

This is a great video about YouTube's nonsense by a great creator. I recommend checking it out and supporting him if you can.

"When the din of daily life was taken away, the sound of his breath remained. In and out it went. Cavaar wondered each time he exhaled if it would be his last."

The more I learn about writing and publishing, the less I feel know about it. Is that normal? Does that mean I'm getting better at writing or am I just confusing myself?

Me before going to a thrift store: "I don't really like clothes shopping and I can get by with buying a new pair of jeans every two years."

Me at a thrift store with my wife: "Do you think this belt goes with these pants? I need to accessorize."

Just finished the first book in the Earthsea series by Ursula K. Le Guin and really enjoyed it, especially her clear and direct but profound prose. Here's one of my favorite quotes:

"A man: who, knowing his whole true self cannot be used or possessed by any power other than himself, and whose life therefore is lived for life's sake and never in the service of ruin, or pain, or hatred, or the dark."

Incidentally my Alma Mater's motto is "Know Thyself".

Librarian Myriel keeps watch outside the Cataclysm Chamber:

"The feeling that he was being watched out of the blackness was only that, a feeling. The alternative was too maddening to consider."

Consider dropping a like or a sub if you like what you see!

I'll probably never be able to play Elite Dangerous, but this guy is really cool to watch.

I'm not sure what it says about me that most of the stories that I write and love are about murder and murderers...

"The storm gathered in the west and darkened the horizon until it seemed night had come early. The great gray thunder cloud billowed and charged the castle, a wall of rain at its front. Yarik stood on the battlements with his squad and watched the approaching wetness with annoyance."

Found this guy on my ride the other day. Used a branch to encourage him to get off the road and he snapped it in half. Glad it wasn't my finger.

Mountain biking is a lot of fun.
