If That’s the Way You Write “Check Out”, I Think I’ll Use My $2.99 for a Better Purpose

Back on Tumblr!

I’ve taken the original premise of my blog and put it on Tumblr – thewritersblockproject.tumblr.com – so check it out, please and thank you!


Told you I’d be back!

Prose Nylund will now be updated every Sunday, starting March 25th April 1st *sigh* April 8th with the eleventh instalment of The Bitches!…*Update April 11th, 2012* Okay, look. I’m a neglectful bastard. If this blog was my child it’d be dirty and starved and subsequently taken away from me by the government. I always make promises I don’t keep and never follow through. So you know what? I can at least promise that this’ll happen on a Sunday in 2012! So wait for it! Wait for it….wait for it…wait for it…

Somewhere In Between.

Note: And now for the third installment of my post on Prose Nylund’s first anniversary post. (Read Part 1 here and Part 2 here). I know it’s realllly late in coming, but I’ve actually been really busy, most of all with a career change. But now I’ve found my balance, so it’s back to blogging!


About ten years ago, I received a block-shaped stub of a book via a Secret Santa exchange at a staff Christmas party.

It was called The Writer’s Block

I was ecstatic, of course, as it was an acknowledgment of and a contribution to my persona as The Writer (even though there was not much writing going on at all back then) and because I believed that it would be the “thing” that would finally deliver me from my slump. And it would.

Just not for another eight years.
