Tag Archives: Help me

Hey, remember me?

We've had a lot of visitors over here, and according to my stats, they tore it up. It looks like they're promoting some pretty outstanding books.

I'm worried that The Playground isn't ready yet. I hope I didn't miss the window of opportunity for releasing new books. Will that stop me? Not at all.

I started a new short story during the evenings this week, and need an expert. I'm looking for someone who knows a bit about broadcast radio. If it matters at all, it involves FM radio. I have a few troubleshooting questions I'd like to ask.

Anyone who can help will get some detailed insight into the story I'm working on.

Blogland is a big place, and I'm willing to bet one of you worked as a DJ or sound engineer at some point in your life. Drop me a comment or an email if you can help.

I'll probably work on The Yak Guy Project this weekend. My short fiction is a fill in project.

Craig gives a big sigh

I never intended to post today. Thursday isn’t one of my usual days, and the blog stream is full of resolutions and hope. This post is mostly to help me focus on personal sanity.

My family arrived the Monday before Christmas. They decided to go back home yesterday, with a stop in Twin Falls to visit a friend. They arranged for a rental while here, and will be moving here very soon.

Last night was glorious. I bought my books, enjoyed my one drink, and read until I was ready for bed. It was peaceful, if not quiet. My wife had to watch the New Years programs which were filled with terrible live versions of music that was bad to begin with.

It’s all good to me. It was peaceful once again. This morning I read your blogs for hours and worked on the critiques I received from my group.

My wife cleaned house for a couple of hours. It’s amazing what company can do to a house in a matter of minutes. She put on some gigantic shrimp to marinade. Life is good.

The phone rang. The kids decided to come back. We had to buy more shrimp. We could have fried a chicken, or grilled some hot dogs, but we were stuck with our shrimp that have to be cooked.

The kids are here to arrange for utilities and other things that come with moving. I don’t blame them, and I understand they have to stay here. Still, the clean kitchen and counters ended thirty seconds after arrival.

My ears are about to burst with X-Box noise and squalling kids who can’t seem to make it do what they want.

I know more weekends are going to be trashed. They’ll need help moving, and they’ll have to I stay here until the essentials are set up. I may never get back to my current story. I’ve had company since October, and I thought this weekend would be the end. I may have to sell the Writing Cabin.

I have vacation time coming, and may have to use it for writing.

Therefore; Craig gives a big sigh. I can’t miss them if they don’t go away.

Changed my Header

My mother has a bunch of cool antiques. Most of them are family heirlooms. I had an idea of a good header for a writing blog and asked for a specific photo.

She had my brother help, and I think they did a great job. I got a sequence of good pictures using various antiques.

It took most of the night to get it into the blog, but I crashed my way through.

I think it would be fun to keep the same picture, but add one item whenever I put a new book online. I have no idea how to do it, but it would be fun. As they say, there’s an app for that. (I hope)

Does anyone know of an app where I can cut an image or two from a photo, then drop them on the tablecloth background. As an example, frogs play an important role in Wild Concept. A handful of frogs would be fun when I release Wild Concept into the – wild.

I’m asking for some suggestions here. I’d also like to know what you think of the header. I know this one isn’t subject to anyone’s copyright.
