Well, Minnesota got hit with the fifth biggest snow event in history on Friday-Saturday.
I've finally gotten us cleared out as of nine pm Sunday. ANd I had to use the wheelbarrow to haul snow to the front yard since the driveways with the neighbor are against each other. Only five wheelbarrow loads needed and you can still see the wheelbarrow molded hunks in the front snowbanks.
Very happy that the snow started Friday after we were all home and I had time to buy formula.
"They" say that without goals, we don't know whether we've gotten where we want to go. Having a goal of "finish The Wayfarer King" seems overwhelming, so I've decided to chunk it into smaller, more manageable goals. First goal: write 200 words per day, starting... today! I was going to type tomorrow, but why wait? Second goal: finish the first draft by... Feb 14! I think I can do that. Pretty sure. After that, I'll have a better idea where I want to go with the story, so the

Hello SFFWorld and SF fans,
I've been a science fiction fan my whole life, starting at a very early age with movies and then spreading to books. As an outspoken teenager, I started writing songs and became vocalist in the early 90s. My job and my hobbies have revolved around the SF/Fantasy world over the past 7+ years, and after starting work on AKTIYA in 2006, the first installment (The Ignition Sequence) is now available. We filmed a live-action trailer, which can be viewed at

Astronomy pictures always give me that sense of being shown how small I am in the scale of things, and the latest pic from NASA is one of my favourites.
And to think that this is just one....
The detail on this image is brilliant, too.
Hope you're as impressed as I am!

Then the darkrons marched out into the world once again. Their realm of Gehenna was sealed off from Xanadu by the Dragon’s Back Mountains, but their slithering scouts discovered three hidden Shadowgates where they could pass through that mighty range. The first of these lay far to the north, through the Caves of Shadow and into the mines of Endoth Deep, beneath the frozen mountains of Ursa. The second Shadowgate was to follow the melting glacier down through

I am finding myself hugely frustrated with life right now. I have become a person that can't seem to finish any projects. I have so much I want to do to fix up my house, start a small business, write stories, and paint pictures, but i find myself night after night giving in and waisting time just watching tv. Hell, I am not even playing video games.
I use to spend days tweaking a piece of artwork and being content. Now, I can barely spend ten minutes to start work on an idea that
So far, I'm impressed with Bright of the Sky by Kay Kenyon. Every time I think I know where it's going, something different happens. I love that! I wish I had more vacation time this month -- I'm ready to sit and read for about a week straight without even checking email. Unfortunately, I'm a little obsessive about checking email, facebook, twitter and the gazillion forums I visit, let alone the sales reports for my books.
The good news is that Venom is getting terrific reviews! Five

‘I’ve seen many strange things in my time,’ Gothia said. ‘Snake priests of Ophir, Aesiryan runecasters, Amarran shamen, Erlen magic-weavers, Shambala sages in the Wu-Tang Mountains, all with powers I didn’t understand, powers which have no rational explanation… but none of what I saw compares to this… I was flying across the stars, between worlds, even back and forth through time.’
For the first time in a very long time, Gothia’s golden-brown lion
