I'm in a bad place

by Dennis M. Myers, 11/3/2021

I'm in a bad place. At least, that's what it feels like. This sinking feeling that came upon me. My mother is ill. Has been for a while. She could die tomorrow, or she could survive another decade. Seems unlikely, that last part. I doubt she'll make it to 2022. I don't know if I am disappointed because I can't wave a book I wrote under her nose, or if I am just feeling like I am losing my mother.

I haven't written in a month. I told May I was going to come in here and just write crap. Well, here it is. Crap. Plenty of it, too. I need to get the writing juices flowing again. I h... [More]

Autumn has Fallen Upon Us

by Dennis M. Myers, 09/28/2021

I've made some minor improvements to this website, and so it will look better, going forward. I was considering a bit of rebranding, since I am currently working on a series that takes place long before the Automated Empire comes into being, but I decided against it. It's the same universe.

Speaking of which, I am nearing completion of the first draft of the second book of the series. I am also starting to look back into the first book for rewrites. I think this series is my best work so far, so a good place for me to get started. Rise of the Automated Empire is w... [More]

Mid-September Update

by Dennis M. Myers, 09/12/2021

Friday the 10th was the release date for Kate on Netflix. Needless to say I have been waiting for that movie for quite some time. Anyone who knows me and my love of a particular Japanese rock band can tell you why. There are two songs of note in the movie. The first comes during a car chase early in the movie. That's Blooming, a fast paced song perfect for the chase. The second is when Kate has to go find someone. It's in a club, and Band-Maid is playing on stage. That song is Choose Me. The rest of the movie is action packed mayhem and revenge with a twisted ending that was enjoyabl... [More]

Slowness of Summer

by Dennis M. Myers, 08/30/2021

I've spent a lot of time on yard tasks, staining my deck, painting and such. It's been slow going on Red Ice 2. Covid coming back to near top strength even though we have a vaccine makes me angry. We should have been clear of this by now. I've lost two cousins, and aunt, and my mother. How many more people will we lose? I don't even want to argue about it. At this rate, Darwin is grinning in his grave.

So I decided against handling an epidemic in my stories, mainly because I couldn't imagine the stupidity involved. No wait, that's not true. I wanted to write it smartly, but tha... [More]

My last post was written with the idea that I could prime the pump, so to speak. It worked. I had a highly productive weekend, followed by a moderately productive week. So I am going at it again.

When May woke me up this morning she said she had a story to tell be at 4am. This confused me, but since I hadn't had any coffee and was just waking up, I figured I was just in my morning fog, and needed to clear my head. Once I was done with my routine and safely within reach of coffee, may told me her 4am story. She said she had heard someone trying to open the bedroom door last nigh... [More]
