Portrait of the Artist On Deadline, 6/9/18

I have exactly one week to finish The Consuming Fire. I have, well. A lot to go to be done. I am taking this picture now so you have an idea of what I look like as I begin this marathon sprint. When I finish the book, I will take another picture. I think the contrast may end up being instructive.

Wish me luck. Don’t expect to see much of me between now and then.

  1. Hope Griffin Diaz – North Carolina – So, to borrow from a popular shirt, I love Jesus but I cuss a little. Well, a lot. In fact, I just don't believe Jesus really gives a shit about the word fuck. He does care if you say f you or go f yourself. But a general adjective? Nah. I am married to the love of my life, Louie (aka Luis) and have an adult child, Christy. My mum, Nancy, is still with us and active in our lives. I love to read, I fancy myself an amateur gardener, I am owned by a large black purr machine maine coon cat named Samwise aka #SamSam and a Border Collie/Australian Cattle dog mix named Daisy. I knit. I craft. I sew. These are at my leisure and are hobbies. I don't take commissions nor do I do alterations. I'm an aspiring human being. I battle several mental illnesses including depression, major panic disorder, agoraphobia, germaphobia, claustrophobia, and some other assorted illnesses. I also have fibromyalgia and have had numerous traumatic brain injuries (into the double digits now). I am not able to drive at night. I don't know where this blog is going ... if anywhere.

    May your muse be inspiring and may your words flow.

  2. You can do it! We’re all pulling for you! This is the only book other than The Expanse that I’m looking forward to this year.

  3. Oneness Warrior – I'm imperfect, often irreverent, and a Wisdom Elder. That means I approach the reality of ONEness as ME. I believe when I was told, "We are One with God (Universe, Life, et al) and One with each other" I heard the Truth. Practicing every day - with everyone you encounter in some form - and it will always and ever shape-shift, change, work and not work. Here's a place for dialogue, information, and if you believe the Inside You says, "Yeah, I'd like to be part of/contribute/guest blog/translate/and more...send an email. Peace. It's Who We Are. Not for the Wuss or the Weak. And Peace Rocks.

    I wish you good luck – but you won’t need it. You’ve got it. xo

  4. Sending thoughts of energy, enthusiasm and inspiration your way, with hopes for a satisfyingly successful outcome.

    And thank you, sir, for doing what you do, because there are a whole lot of us who really, really, REALLY enjoy the result. We will happily possess our souls in patience while you toil, especially since you had the sagacity to hire such a terrific intern to post here while you are otherwise occupied.

  5. I’ve got no doubts as to ability to produce quality.

    I’m hoping there’s not too many extra gray hairs between going there and back here again.

  6. Hope you plan on doing the Tilt-shift thing for the after image. ;-)

  7. You’ve got this. First thought that came to mind about the before and after pictures is the Presidency. The second thing was that along with a very stressful job they usually get that job at an age where age really starts to show. So how much of it is the job and how much of it is just time.

  8. Seems like there ought to be a joke about Deadpool becoming a writer and changing his name to Deadline, but I can’t find it.
    Looking forward to the book, already on preorder.

  9. Nose to the grindstone, content monkey! Kidding aside, looking forward to the book, please don’t be late. And ask Krissy to stock the fridge with *normal* burrito fillings for the next week, don’t want to waste the creative juices on ‘what goes with rhubarb in a burrito?’ (PS the answer is *just don’t*.)
