In the Imperfect World of Fallen Screws

August 7th, 2009
by Lance Reynald

PORTLAND, OR-

I’m going to run a bit off the farm on this one here. Allow for the author to journey through the emotional hillside with ya. Give ya a bit of pop culture tourism through the eyes of the 1980’s raised brat-pack wannabe.

It’s been a crazy few days. I’ve been pounding the pavement trying my damdest to problem solve and keep my starving artist self from starving even more and facing the very real possibility of slipping through the cracks and being homeless.

And halfway through that series of pavement pounding challenges I get a text message that John Hughes died.

Recapping a Tour, or The Mirror Conspiracy Comes Full Circle

PORTLAND, OR-

There have been names thrown out over the years: Arrogant. Enigmatic. Freak. Media Whore. Self-indulgent. Vain. Narcissistic.

All names that suggest I’ve been spotted, seen and made note of. Words that the people closest to me find laughable and would say are totally off base. There is no owners manual for living with these words. I suppose it’s presumed that when these words come into play that you are immune to the effects of them. No self help books to give you perspective, no wisdom or advice for you.

Left to Consider How Very Frustrated Marcel Proust Might Be and How Far Into the Woods Walden Has Become

PORTLAND, OR-

Seriously, that’s my title and I’m sticking to it.

Welcome to the contemporary novelist in the age of the new media. Your booktour is quickwork of a few major markets and your audience is considered global with access to all just a mouseclick away.

The landscape of writing has been changing vastly in the digital era. It is a multi-media endeavor and another experience in branding. This is the reality of it now, and the pace is getting quicker.

If you don’t think you have the stomach for that reality I’d suggest that you look away and not even bother with clicking further. (more…)

Sometimes I think my wiring might be a bit screwy. I just can’t seem to synch up with the stuff I’m supposed to synch up with. Upward mobility. Status quo. Home ownership. Decent credit score. Dress for success. A new car. 2.5 kids. Investment strategies. A good name for oneself. Retirement.

LAFAYETTE, CO-

Self exile can teach you new things everyday.

Trying to finish the next Great American Novel can lead to countless hours of passing the time researching things on the internet, googling odd news stories…googling yourself…wikipedia.

I was raised in a place that doesn’t even rank as a state.
