I’m crawling out

November 14, 2017


I’ve spend the past 12 months grinding Microsoft certifications. The downside is there are only so many hours in a day and study cuts into writing. Sometimes short-term goals must supersede long-term goals to assist the long-term goals. Upside, raises, promotion with raise, and more raises. Also a new shift which allows me to spend […]

Next Steps

October 5, 2016


While I wait for the massive wave of form rejections I’m trying to decide what to work on next. Right now, at this point in space-time, I’m studying two hours a night for server certifications. I want into a role at work that will allow me to interact less with clients. Make me an engineer […]

Let’s get to work

December 14, 2015


At 10:37 p.m. CST,  on December 12, 2015, I wrote The End on my rough draft. I thought I would be happier. This was a big goddamn thing for me.  I did more words in six weeks than I have, ever, in that timeframe.  It was probably more than I typically write in a year. […]

Argle Bargle

December 10, 2015


I’ve written just over 18000 words in the past nine days.  Yay. I missed the self imposed deadline though.  I’ll be finished this weekend.  I will, I really, really will. Tuesday night was bad.  There are advantages to being a touch typist.  I can let my head bounce like a bobble head doll while I’m […]

Plots or Peoples

There are no surprises left for or from my characters. Only consequences. #amwriting — Greg Mulka (@GregMulka) December 7, 2015 Look!  I embedded a thing! I was hoping to have my first draft finished this weekend.  The boy child pounding on the door and demanding my attention put paid to that plan.  Two more days. […]

Nano Hangover

December 3, 2015


Not really though.  I was hoping to get more done last month but since it was the highest output I’ve ever had I don’t know how realistic that is.  Of the five verified pros I buddied up with one of them outpaced me by almost 2 to 1, once wrote 5k more words than I […]

So that happened

November 30, 2015


I love that phrase. I won Nanowrimo.  Which means I won the right to write another 30k to 40k words.  I’m excited. This is the first time in my adult life passion and priority have lined up.  That’s not to say I haven’t ignored priority for passion, but I’m older now.  It’s possible age is […]
