Workbook 10 | July: Time for Crime

This is a #workbook update on #ruckology by Brandon L. Rucker in which he reports on the productivity and counter-productivity of his author/musician life. Not a whole lot to report in this working update because I’ve been busy living (more on that in tomorrow’s The Evening Muse). Let’s get right to it. Comics Project: CrimeTime [...]

Workbook 9 | June: Criminal Intent

The end of June flowed nicely into a holiday weekend, so with that now out of the way, I can take a quick moment to reflect on the previous month’s productivity.

So my rock band of 10 months, Neglect the Alarm, has been putting the finishing, polishing touches on the five songs that [...]

Workbook 4 | July 26-August 1, 2015

Current Project: Me (my confidence, my outlook, my purpose) The week that was . . . Started the week off in a bit of a funk. Lacking confidence in my ambitions and lacking conviction in the possibility of actual achievement in my goals. Began to wonder if I should simply forgo writing fiction, which over [...]
