Welcome to the Nexus!

Finding Forgotten Friends

May 16th, 2024 / Dave / 0 comments
One of the few true regrets I have (for most mistakes can, at least, be learned from) is losing contact with friends over time. Through the magic of the internet, I just this week found someone I had thought lost. It’s a really good feeling to touch someone from your past, and though we’re both […]

95 Miles

May 13th, 2024 / Dave / 0 comments
I’ve been an avid cyclist for years, but I haven’t done a 100 miles in a week in over 25 years (outside of the weekends I did the MS150). Last week I clocked in at 95 miles over 5 days. I’m hoping that’s a continuing trend, because it makes me feel great! What’s your weekly […]

The Way Plan

May 10th, 2024 / Dave / 0 comments
I have finally digested all of the feedback for The Way, and am in the process now of dissecting the one book and making it into two. The primary story will have most of the background story stripped out. At least as a place to start. I know some fans will be disappointed by that, […]

Marching Band!

May 7th, 2024 / Dave / 0 comments
My favorite second son has chosen to join his high school marching band for next fall. While it’s a decision I wholly support, it comes with a huge calendar load, including a previously unknown to us mini-camp this weekend. Right in the middle of getaway plans my wife and I made, and an overnight locking […]

Down Under

April 29th, 2024 / Dave / 0 comments
Well, the wife and I finally have all of our arrangements organized for a family trip to Australia and New Zealand. Lots of sight seeing, and several nights on the Great Barrier Reef where the middle son and I will do some scuba diving. Can’t wait!

Baldur’s Gate

April 22nd, 2024 / Dave / 0 comments
ZOMG! I’m not one to talk too much about games, but my eldest and I started playing Baldur’s Gate 3 together. What an amazingly crafted and well thought-out game. Luckily, I can only play it when he’s around, or I’d never get any writing done.

Blowing up The Way

April 16th, 2024 / Dave / 0 comments
And just like that, I have two books instead of one. But not in the easy, first-half/second-half way. No, I’ve decided to split out the integrated story into it’s own supporting novel(a). It’s the right decision for the sake of the primary story, while still wanting to tell the secondary story. Best part is, without […]

The Way Revision

April 9th, 2024 / Dave / 0 comments
Finally sliding into the next revision pass on The Way. And sliding is more accurate than jumping, at this point. It’s a big chunk, and I have a major change decision I need to make. But first, consolidating feedback. In the man time, though, inspiration hit, and I have come up with a slight change […]

Minicon Redeux

April 1st, 2024 / Dave / 0 comments
Had a great time at Minicon 57 this past weekend. Discovered author Ursula Vernon, ran into an also-retired former co-worker and met up with old friends who we mostly only see at Minicon. Also learned how to solder lights onto our circuit board badges thanks to Build-a-Blinky.

Minicon

March 26th, 2024 / Dave / 0 comments
The Minnesota Science Fiction Society hosts it’s annual Sci-Fi & Fandom, Minicon, convention this weekend, Friday through Sunday. Maybe I’ll see you there!
