Somebody has been writing on my computer again!

Somebody has been writing on my computer again!

In the aftermath of my failed experiment with travelling the world … Wait a sec. Let’s start that again. Is an experiment a failure just because it does not have the hoped for results? SNAP!! Take 2 Now that I am reorganizing as I start the newest adventures in my journey of life, I find ... Read More

Time to try this organization thang again …

Life is ultimately about change. This is no great revelation … a simple statement of observable fact. So why do I start my post with a statement of the obvious? Ultimately, because I need to start SOMEWHERE, and that is what worked for me. Yep, folks, I am once again ... Read More
Both … neither … everything in-between

Both … neither … everything in-between

I am writing a book. This is not news to some, an interesting fact to others, a meaningless mess of images to some others … and many other things to still many other people. Actually, I am writing several books, but THIS book … this book is special. It is ... Read More

The P.O.W.ER of the mind

Destiny has been on my mind lately. Does it exist? What actually IS it? Do we follow a path that has already been set before us? Or do we make it all up as we move along? These are questions many wrestle with. These questions are lately the core of ... Read More

#atozchallenge: M & M’s (I mean M and N)

Yesterday was a mad day for me, even before it became a mad day for EVERYBODY. My M post WAS going to be about madness, and then today I was going to go with What’s next. Yesterday and today, however, have not quite cooperated with my personal schedule, so I ... Read More

It is amazing what having a chat with the right people can do. Some people offer encouragement. Some offer empathy. Then there are those that offer a good bitch slap upside the head and say get on with it already. Whatever did the trick, I managed  to pump a few more words out on one of the novels, and have enough ideas floating around still to maybe even continue for a day or three. We shall see. For those who are care, the current word count is now:

  • RAYSON’S story
  • Previous word count:    69547
  • Chapter:     20 finished
  • Current word count:      71375
  • Chapter:      21 
  • GUSTY’S story
  • Previous word count:     25658
  • Chapter:      18 Finished     
  • Current word count:      26569
  • Chapter:      19 Finished
At long last …

At long last …

Once upon a time, this basically lazy but somewhat creative guy came up with a crazy idea. He got sick of telling people he was unemployed when they asked what he did for a living, so he figured Author would be a much better way of saying it. To add some verisimilitude to this concept, he learned ... Read More

Brace yourself … I am back (sort of)

For the last couple of months I have had every excuse in the book (well … not MY book)  to not work on my books. Ironic as that might be. Some of the excuses might actually have a certain amount of legitimacy to them, such as helping my mother deal with my father’s quick decline into world of Alzheimer’s ... Read More

Is he still writing those damn books?

Is he still writing those damn books?

One of the victims of my recent bout of hiding … actually two, are the two stories that have chosen me to share themselves with the world. They temporarily got lost in the darkness, which is a shame because they are both wonderful stories (at least in my mind). But thankfully now that I seem to be ... Read More
