Ruckin’ With You | 11.18.16 | Ugh!

Late Edition. As I finally file this away for transmission to you on this fine Friday (71 degrees in mid-November), I am a miserable bastard who stayed home from work today due to having received the plague from my teenage daughter. I know how it happened too. It was last Saturday when I was enclosed inside a car with the infected child (Patient Zero — I call her “Outbreak Monkey”) when we all went to lunch that afternoon. That was the day–if not before or immediately after–that the insidious virus leaped from her body to my unsuspecting one. By Tuesday for sure it was gestating, and by Wednesday I was waking up in the morning with a sore throat. By Thursday it was full bore. So here I sit on a Friday cooped up on such a unseasonably nice day. I’m normally quite the iron man, capable of warding off most contagions. But not when you entrap me in a small space like a car with diseased individuals (especially a school-age child). Kids, man. They …

RUCKERPEDIA | A Programming Note

So everyone’s favorite new website RUCKERPEDIA has been showcasing dark fiction this month in honor of the “Dark Days of October” leading up to Halloween. And over the next couple of weeks that will continue to be a focus of my little Library of Works. However, tonight a crime spree will commence as I upload six different pieces of crime fiction, be it a series of 50-word dribbles, a dialogue-only piece, short story excerpts and even a work-in-progress. I’m might even include a couple of noir pieces as the nightcaps.  So make sure you tune in this evening from primetime and on through the late night hours for some seedy good times, m’kay?

Ruckin’ With You | 10.9.16 | Library’s Open!

I’d really like to be ruckin’ with y’all proper today, however, I’m not going to be able to because… I’m on vacation!!! Out of town with the fam this week, on a multi-stop adventure which commenced this morning with a 6-hour drive. I sure hope to get a lot of backlogged reading done during the down time of this week. Perhaps some plotting during the quiet hours in the hotel room. I will say this though: this past week I was pretty much obsessed with launching my new website: RUCKERPEDIA I hope you’ll all check out, and Like, and add it to your WP Reader, or FOLLOW to be notified of updates. RUCKERPEDIA, which has been in the works for a while, is my online Library of Works site which is home to my various creative works like a variety of forms of fiction, poetry and lyrics. Currently stocked with about 15 pieces, with another 5 on deck and at least a total of 25 works to be uploaded this month alone. I’d say by year’s end, if all …

Ruckin’ With You | 9.25.16 | On a Pre-Birthday Sunday

Late edition for the previous week. Smartly I launched this birthday weekend/weekbegin with a 4-day weekend off from work to commemorate my latest trip ‘round the sun. Before officially being another year older I decided to finally finish constructing the companion website to this one. The site is called RUCKERPEDIA. Long-term readers here may recall that as the former moniker of the blogsite you’re currently reading (succeeded by RUCKOLOGY and finally, Rucker | Writer). So what the heck is RUCKERPEDIA, you might ask? Essentially it is the site that will serve as my official online archive of fiction (of various formats and genres), poetry and lyrics. You could think of it like an online zine, but dedicated exclusively to my many various works. For posterior, if nothing else. It will also be a place to host some all-new writing that doesn’t quite belong elsewhere. I’m currently tweaking the layout now and then will begin to stock it with pieces over the next week. With any luck it will be primed and ready to launch upon an …

Workbook 6 | March: Ramping Up

Hello, Spring. You’ve been missed. And I’ve been busy. Sorta. Been a while since I’ve done one of these so let’s get right to it. Current Project: Comeback The past month or so has been devoted to making a comeback in a couple of different ways. A kind of rebirth. Emerging from the dark cold winter with a better outlook on what it is I’m supposed to be doing with whatever talents I may have as a writer and musician. I’m addressing the writer aspect first. First and foremost, I had to upgrade my primary computing and writing device with a new laptop. That was done about a month ago. Updated hardware and software, crucial tools for working smarter, not harder. Current Project: Ruckerpedia Creating a self-publishing venue for my writing – that’s currently underway as I put together the all-new Ruckerpedia: The Magazine & Archive of yours truly, which will house all of my fiction, poetry and lyrics – old and forthcoming. In the process of the just mentioned, this particular blog became rebranded …
