Pardon My Absence

Hello All –

I am sorry I have been away for a little bit over a month. It has taken quite a bit of time to get my beer blog up and running. Not only that, but a scene for a new novel popped up one day on the drive to work and I have been fleshing out the story line every since.

I am back back now and I promise to get back to regular posts.

As always I appreciate your support!

Happy Writing!


Allow Myself To…. Introduce Myself

I know this has been a long time coming. For those of you who have been with me from the beginning I sincerely appreciate your patience and continued support of this blog. As I have talked about for what seems like and what has become years I do in fact plan on self-publishing a novel in the immediate future.

While I am not certain of it, at some point, I have to show my first attempt to the world and I feel like it is very much something I can be proud of and will look back at fondly. I still intend to keep this particular site as my online writing space to share my thoughts, inspirations, interactions, poems etc. With that in mind I have started the process of a second page.

This new page will be dedicated to my published writing and any other opportunities that may come along. I would be greatly appreciative of your support on this new page. You all have been with me from the beginning and I hope that many of you will read and give me your feedback on the novel. Details will be coming soon, anticipation can be great 🙂

Without further ado, see below for the new blog:

I look forward to sharing this new adventure with you- my readers, my fellow writers and my cohorts in the blogging world.

Capturing The Bubbles

There isn’t much I enjoy more than a nice cold beer on a hot day. There is just something so refreshing and relaxing about it. The moment practically begs you to ponder the universe and your place in it. When the mood is right it can lead you to believe that everything is indeed right.

A funny thing happened to me the other day while I was enjoying this Ambiguous Ale and yes that is the name of the ale. I was transfixed by the way the bubbles were floating to the top and disappearing. Some of them lingered before making their ascent while others shot to the top with the maximum speed allowed. Then of course there were others that found their speed in some happy medium.

There is a metaphor buried deep within that beer. It may not be the prettiest but I think it can apply to so many things. Whether it is writing, working, or even traveling everything has its own speed and ultimately once you reach the top, the end, it will pop.

Don’t worry though another bubble is forming on the bottom of the pint glass.

Crisis of Creativity


Things I have not been able to do for approximately the last three weeks:

-Get creative for my class projects (a story about a lime green chair deserves a chance)

-Blog creatively (you can pretend otherwise but we both know it’s the truth)

-Edit my current Work In Progress (I hate the working title so that will be my excuse)

Essentially I have been caught in a pool of creative stagnation.

So of course I did what any logical writer would do… I started a new novel. I am not even going to deny that the fact it is set in Vegas is me projecting.

What do you do to get going again?
