Project Q Continues

My daily time with words varies during the week. This week I had to double post because the hour grew too late for me to post the work on Figment and  Wattpad, which is to be expected on busy school days. Lately the urge to forgo punctuation or at least play with standards and expectations of punctuations are common, often throwing capitalization and lately, commas, out the proverbial window.

Marshpunk is the newest trend, as a narrative touchstone, or setting helps me get into the groove after teaching, coaching, and then working with my own children before writing. Black Narrows, a marsh city of shacks and black market traders. Throw some wild engineers in the mix, the ever present watermen, and the Narrows boils with seediness. Deadwood on the marsh perhaps.

As far as writing on an ipad is concerned, unless you work with google drive’s/tumblr/html editor, there is no great word processor. Google drive, however, dependent on the internet connectivity speed, is a hassle when M is watching her shows on Netflix and Thor is watching his youtube video game channels. I still haven’t mastered copying and pasting large chunks of text from drive to figment or wattpad, and find that a computer is faster for transferring the poem to the publishing outlets. And forget about adding your own cover from an ipad. For that, which is what so many people love about Figment and Wattpad--the design of their cover, you’ll need a computer.

Wattpad is by far the fastest way to publish. Figment requires the poster to deposit information across four pages (content, details, cover, page type), where Wattpad requires two (content and info, cover).

#PresidentBannon, feudal #America. Dugin's influence on the White House

Op Ed. Ramble.

Steve Bannon is often described as a Neo-Nazi, or just a Nazi. He really isn’t. That’s way too simple.  He knows his Nazi imagery and iconography, evident from the “America First” inauguration speech, the lingo of the campaign, plus the regime’s early policy. Bannon claims to be a Nationalist, one with an originalist view of the Constitution, much like Neil Gorsuch, Trump’s pick for SCOTUS.  So what do you get when you thread a Fascism fetish, Old-School Constitutional thinking, and capitalism?  

American feudalism.

A loose federal government, controlled by a strong military, the oligarchy ruling class lording over the spoils of the states which would possibly be recombined, even, into loose nations, pooling resources, and trade leverage.

Dystopia schmopia.  And how would that even happen?  

We’ll have to go through Russia to get there. If you’re just catching onto Steve Bannon, and Stephen Miller for that matter, two power hungry conservatives running the Trump machine, t…

Grateful to have "Young" & "From Here You Can See New Atlantis" up at @ManzanoMtn, new work in Dreamstreets,and two poems up at @PoetryShore

The folks over at Manzano Mountain Review have graciously selected "Young" and "From Here You Can See New Atlantis" (about floods and eco disasters) for their Winter Issue. You can read them here.

Dreamstreets, one of the oldest literary journals in Delaware, showcased some new poems in their Winter Issue, which you can view here.

If you didn't see my new work up at The Shore, a gorgeous new literary journal out of Salisbury, MD., check out "From End of America Fanasmagoria" here, and a poem about my cat, or catwife (that's her, above)  here.

Some new short fiction is forthcoming in 2020, and my novel of weird fiction is still forthcoming; it takes a while to edit an 800 plus page horror-thriller novel.
