NNWM/26: Inception-ish

When I’ve talked about the plot of my new novel, a lot of people say, “Oh – like Inception!” And while both stories center around dreaming, that’s the only real common ground they share. But enough folks made the comparison that I began to worry. I saw Inception when it came out a few years ago,Continue reading “NNWM/26: Inception-ish”

NNWM/25: Rabbit Hole

Originally we’d hoped to take advantage of the long holiday weekend and embark upon a mini getaway today, possibly to check out the Painted Hills of Oregon before holing up in Pendleton or The Dalles overnight, but poor weather and a lack of daylight made us reconsider those plans.

NNWM/20: Accessory Before the Fact

Random thought: SNL is killin’ it this season. Even after the election. Especially after the election. Over the past few days, I’ve learned an awful lot about the American legal system. Not firsthand, fortunately – I’m not borrowin’ the county jail’s WIFI to write this post – but through my old friend research. Whereas earlierContinue reading “NNWM/20: Accessory Before the Fact”
