“Writing and Oranges and Music, OH MY!” by Richard F. Yates

Today, perhaps because of some psychological holiday jet-lag, I’m feeling directionless and unmotivated. I decided to do something about it… (Can’t let myself be a victim of apathy.) It’s not an ENDING—it’s the start of the NEXT phase. I’ll read these pages a time or two and then write a response to myself, EXPAND onContinue reading ““Writing and Oranges and Music, OH MY!” by Richard F. Yates”

“To Do List (8 Feb. 2020)” by Richard F. Yates

This morning, I sat down with my notebook (and the notes that I’d sent myself on my phone), and I wrote up everything that I could think of that I wanted to complete, both short- and long-term goals… Here’s what I came up with… SHORT TERM —Order Uncle Randy’s books (and restock some of theContinue reading ““To Do List (8 Feb. 2020)” by Richard F. Yates”

“Unpublished Writers Day + Some Self Promotion!” by Richard F. Yates

Sorry! (Not actually sorry…) I didn’t post anything yesterday, but I think I have some good excuses: I was really busy, out of town for most of the day, and I’m old and fell asleep on the couch as soon as we made it back to town! (Like I said…SORRY! That’s two times in JanuaryContinue reading ““Unpublished Writers Day + Some Self Promotion!” by Richard F. Yates”

“Artist’s Statement – January 2020” by Richard F. Yates

As my efforts to GO PRO continue to gain steam (and “STEEM” as well), the time has come for a new ARTIST’S STATEMENT. By drawing up and organizing these concepts, I’m not only clarifying them and sharing my intentions with YOU FOLKS out there in the world(s), but I’m also winding myself up—in Alan Moore’s terms, I’m spellingContinue reading ““Artist’s Statement – January 2020” by Richard F. Yates”

“FINALLY Finished My Novella!!!” by Richard F. Yates

Holy SMURF! After WAAAAAY too much time spent procrastinating, I finally contacted an artist friend of mine, who agreed to draw me a cover for my book, and he very quickly produced a brilliant, creepy image for me…like in just a couple of days!!! Unfortunately, I had to soil his image by putting some wordsContinue reading ““FINALLY Finished My Novella!!!” by Richard F. Yates”

“Read a Damn Book – 154: The Final Programme”

I’ve been sort of dreading this review, and the main reason for my apprehension is that I’m going to have to admit something that I rarely enjoy admitting: I don’t think I GET this book. It’s a novel, which is great, and it’s a science-fiction novel, which is also great. I love science fiction. GreatContinue reading ““Read a Damn Book – 154: The Final Programme””

“Very Very Very Short Stories (A Rehash)” by Richard F. Yates

About 150 years ago, I had something akin to writer’s block. It wasn’t your standard writer’s block, though, where I couldn’t get anything down on paper. This was a weird case in which I was CONSTANTLY writing, starting story after story, coming up with great characters, crazy plots, bizarre mysteries, horrifying monsters…but I’d never FINISHContinue reading ““Very Very Very Short Stories (A Rehash)” by Richard F. Yates”

“Read a Damn Book – 153: The Goon – Bunch of Old Crap”

It’s been over two weeks since my last book review, and I apologize for that! So today’s review, Eric Powell’s The Goon – Bunch of Old Crap, was sent to me by a good friend, Mark Counts (who can often be seen on my various sites doing “remixes” of my artwork—AND Mr. Counts is also aContinue reading ““Read a Damn Book – 153: The Goon – Bunch of Old Crap””
