I've been writing games...

I have been taking some time to write a game or a couple games.  Here’s where you can have a look at my latest.

I wouldn't say Gleet has any advantages.

I can’t take credit for this one. Posted with permission.  What a lazy “IT Consultant”. Not only do you not name the software or technology you are going to help with, specifically, you don’t even know who the company you are contacting is.

How I Survived the Rapture

Well, I guess we were wrong about the whole “people being taken to heaven” thing not being real. It’s real. People have disappeared.


It happened this morning at 8:17am, which would’ve been 7:77am, if we kept track of time wrong, but we don’t. So, it was 8:17am. A strange time for a bunch of people to go missing. I know what you’re thinking, but, it wasn’t all mayhem and confusion. It was more of an inconvenience. Let me explain.


I was walking across the street to Starbucks when an empty car coasted to a stop a few feet away. I thought,  “cool, autonomous car.” I shrugged and went inside to order a coffee.


This is where things got wild. The store was populated with the usual patrons but there was no staff. Hot coffee and steam blasted out of the espresso machine.

“Son of a bitch!” I said. Who’s going to make my hot mocha? I looked over at some random college girl and raised my eyebrows. College girl rolled her eyes at me.

I told her, “well, I don’t know how to operate the damn thing.”

She responded, “I’m a history major.” She adds a shrug.

“I know what you mean. Good luck with that.”

She flipped her middle finger at me, showed me her full coffee cup as she turned and left.

I peered over the counter and saw a pile of clothes.

… To be continued?

Images and why they aren't on my site

I guess the best rule is, if you didn’t create it, don’t use it.

I’ve just read horror stories about people even paying for rights to use photos and STILL getting threatened for infringement.

I don’t want to take that chance to from now on you’ll be getting my own graphical representations.

Why is it so hard to find good software?


Where’s the writing software?

Scrivener seems to be the best thing going for writers but to be completely honest, it’s clunky and bug-filled. The interface is horrible, the features are dismal and the complete lack of add-ins is depressing.

Word is expensive.

Google Docs is completely free, tracks your changes, etc., but also lacks any decent writing add-ons.

There is software out there for screenplay writers but nothing for fiction writers.

I’d like a program that lets me organize my thoughts and ideas and research in a “OneNote” fashion, create a visual flowchart/outline that has easily moveable pieces, like video editing software and of course, a nice writing interface with some better than crappy grammar and spell checking abilities.
