Another Chapter of the Novel for Download, and Novel-ing Continues!


Nov 09 2011 in New Opus

This novel is becoming a struggle. I know words. I often employ them to explain how hungry I am. Occasionally I’ll also express confusion, sexual arousal, and other emotions I’m sure I have when I’m not experiencing those other three things. However, now that I’m put to the test, I’m not wholly certain I don’t […]

A Snippet of My Novel and One of the World’s Shortest Stories


Nov 03 2011 in New Opus

So this novel writing excursion is off to an alright start.  My first night, I wrote around 3000 words.  My second night, a meager 1000.  As I just returned home from an insanely busy day at work, and another meeting for a side project, I’ve yet to write today.  But I’m feeling good about this.  […]

Welcome to the Month of November: What Will YOU Create?


Nov 01 2011 in New Opus

Alright Brave Newbies.  I’ve learned a lot progressing into the Brave New, and one of those things is:  I suck at maintaining a site.  I have piles of writing that’s gone “unpublished” onto thebravenew.com, and clearly I have some hurdles to jump here.  That being said, I’ve always felt like there’s no kill like overkill-  […]

An Apology and a Plan to Change the World!


Jul 01 2011 in New Kindness

First off, to the blagosphere, you’ve been there when I’ve needed you most, and recently I’ve failed you.  My adventures have not ceased, my experiences not slowed, but I have not done my due diligence in documenting the mind-expanding experiences of The Brave New.  Is this a personal failure?  I’m… not sure.  I’ve lived life […]

The Weirdest Things I’ve Eaten: OR How Cobra Blood Does Not Taste Like Butterscotch


Jun 01 2011 in New Food

On to one of my favorite past-times-  seeking and eating out adventurous food.  I like to call this “oral skydiving”, because approached from the right perspective, trying new foods can be every bit the adrenaline-pumping rush of a death-defying jump into the stratosphere.  As an intro to June’s challenge, I wanted to give a list […]


Lets Play with Legos!

The Great LEGO Build


May 26 2011 in Old is the New New

Rediscovery: Building legos How Long HAS it Been: 10 years, 5 months and ~16 days. Why: I challenge you to find someone who’s youth did not include LEGOs. What it was then: LEGOs were a pivotal part of my childhood.  Some of my first memories involve a red LEGO briefcase I got when I was […]


Goosebumps is hard 2 raed lulz

Remember Books? They’re Like the Internet- Except Printed On Trees


May 25 2011 in Old is the New New&Uncategorized

Today’s Rediscovery: Read a Goosebumps “novel” Why: RL Stine was a prolific author during my childhood-  his horror series “Goosebumps” spawned a lifelong interest in horror for me.  Honestly, I was reading Steven King novels by the time I was in fifth grade, so these were a brief stopover until I could get my paws […]
