Sick Days

By Mookie | January 18, 2024 | 0 Comments

The only thing to blog about as I sit down to write today’s entry is that everyone in my house was sick today (yesterday for those of you reading this now). Everyone except for me. We’re a small family, only me and my wife and my son, so two out of three people were sick … Continue reading “Sick Days”

Sight Reading May Have Ruined My Life

By Mookie | January 16, 2024 | 0 Comments

I love music. I love it with all of my heart and soul. Listening to music fills me with inspiration and puts sound to emotions I didn’t know I had or needed to feel. It can be both deep and meaningful, and simply be beautiful for the sake of beauty. Music is everything to me. … Continue reading “Sight Reading May Have Ruined My Life”

How I Love and How I Hate Baldur’s Gate 3

By Mookie | January 11, 2024 | 0 Comments

I finally broke down and bought myself a copy of Baldur’s Gate 3, the Game of the Year for 2023, when it came out for consoles. I do all of my gaming on consoles because I have inexplicably bad luck with technical difficulties whenever I game on PC. So with the flood of sassy pale … Continue reading “How I Love and How I Hate Baldur’s Gate 3”

The Dwarves At Last

By Mookie | January 9, 2024 | 0 Comments

I’ve been waiting on this moment for about a year now. I’ve been featuring them on several tiers of my Patreon page since January of 2023. Those of you who’ve been supporting the Patreon at the Epilogue tier already know who Cresca’s mother is, and what her connection to Dominic was. This has been an … Continue reading “The Dwarves At Last”

Chosen Family Holiday

By Mookie | December 21, 2023 | 0 Comments

I’m going to start this blog off by saying that I’m privileged to be on good terms with my immediate family. That being said, I won’t be seeing them on Christmas Day this year. It was the same last year, too. It’s only because I live a few states away from them and it’s important … Continue reading “Chosen Family Holiday”

The Wizard and the Algorithm

By Mookie | December 19, 2023 | 0 Comments

I’ve been on TikTok for a while now and have gone mildly viral there for two types of videos I’ve made. The first time I went viral was making videos featuring a shark hand puppet ambushing me with metal songs. The second time I went viral was making videos talking about Skyrim, one of my … Continue reading “The Wizard and the Algorithm”

The Return of Louie the Garbage Man

By Mookie | December 14, 2023 | 0 Comments

Makena In Mongreltown is not only my first attempt at shorter stories here, but it’s serving as a showcase for all the people who pledged at the Make-A-Mongrel tier for my Kickstarter to reprint Volume 2 (which is now for sale with all my other books in the Store). Benjee the farmer, Augustus Facejob, the … Continue reading “The Return of Louie the Garbage Man”

Santa Is Real

By Mookie | December 12, 2023 | 0 Comments

I’ve been thinking about this a lot with the holidays coming ever nearer, and my nine-year-old son looks forward to the annual visit from Santa Claus. Obviously, one of these days we’re going to have The Talk with him about who’s really leaving his presents under the tree, but I don’t think it’s going to … Continue reading “Santa Is Real”

No Winter Break This Year

By Mookie | December 7, 2023 | 0 Comments

Traditionally I’ve always taken a week off during the winter holidays and sometime during the summer. This year I won’t be doing that for the winter holidays, nor will I take my annual week-long break during the summer. I will, however, be taking regularly scheduled week-long breaks between anthologies. I have this current story to … Continue reading “No Winter Break This Year”

It’s All Meat!

By Mookie | December 5, 2023 | 0 Comments

Makena committing to the first restaurant he sees and feeling weird about leaving after realizing he can’t eat a thing is not a far-fetched idea because this very thing happened to me. Many years ago my wife and I were trying to decide what we wanted to do for dinner. I forget what exactly she … Continue reading “It’s All Meat!”
