In Max news, I just finished a short story for an anthology and turned it in. It’s a fantasy anthology and was really fun writing for. It’s coming out in January but I don’t know whether I’m supposed to be talking a lot about it in public yet so more on that later.

Am working on a short clip for a proposed Stage 32 webinar. Director and my co-writer on the Sanitarium pilot Kerry Valderamma is helping me shoot that but he has cantered back to his acting roots and is appearing in a play right now which may slow us down. If you’re in San Antonia, Medea is playing Thursday through Sunday all through November at The Classic Theater of San Antonio.

Also gearing up for AFW classes that roll open this coming Tuesday. Structural Writing has a couple seats open if anyone is wanting to brush up on their structure work. I’d love to put a couple more talented people in those seats before the class rolls open. The stronger the group is, the stronger the class is. More on that at


poor neglected bastards

July 26, 2014


Yez.  I have been totally neglecting you.  “But why?,” you say.  “Why would you do this to us?”

Fair question.

Because, oh adorable fiendish followers, I have been rebuilding the school site.  And it was one big job.  Yegads.  But it is done now, or mostly gone.  Go see:  :::new and improved afw site:::


The new and improved AFW school site.


But also to make up for neglecting you, here is a treat.  Zombie Pie Chart!  Yay!


Zombie Pie Chart!


You’re welcome.



taxes_dueSo I am in total —

Tax frenzy meltdown. Sobbing into my beverage, whatever that may be, and this has been going on for days and let me tell you, choosing alcohol as the beverage of choice during tax frenzy never exactly works out you pay later by having to redo EVERYTHING so it is mostly coffee. Or at least tonight it is.

God. Damn. It.

But once again. Tax. FRENZY.


I really hate this. I am not good at it. It feels completely out of control. It takes me days just thinking about it and freaking out about it to really start putting things down on paper and gathering documents.

I decide at the height of this I am going to take a photo of this mayhem for posterity.


There are after all papers all the fuck over and receipts in piles and it is tax frenzy right?


The photo is an absolute disappointment.

[I am not even going to show it to you. That is how disappointing and embarrassing it is.]

It does not look frenzied.

It looks like about twenty five stacks of neatly sorted documents next to one box of paperwork that has clearly been rifled pulling out said documents and also five clearly labeled manilla folders.


That does not look like frenzy.


The Tax Frenzy photo is so mocking my pain.



Okay you knew I’d break down and show you though, right?

Tax Frenzy!

Tax Frenzy!

But wait, here it is where you can see the box! Look at the BOX! AHHHH!

Tax Frenzy Mit Box!

Tax Frenzy Mit Box!

You know that box is so frenzied. Totally. Look at it. LOOK. AT. IT!
