Making Time for the Fun of Writing

It’s the end of another week and this one has been busy. My day job keeps me quite busy, especially these last few months, but I manage to continue to make time in my day to write. With some of the other challenges of my life, my writing time is shorter and less than it has been, but I’m still writing.

That’s one of the important things I’ve learned in life. If there is anything I want to do, I can’t wait for the perfect time. There may never be a perfect time. Like protagonists in good stories, I have to act. Waiting for a good time to come around may mean never finding the time. I really enjoy writing and creating stories, and to do that, I have to cut time out of my busy schedule.

Taking cues from protagonists of some of my favorite books, I sometimes cut down my sleep time, or other fun activities, just to write. My current book is fun to write, and helps me relax and step away from the stresses of my day job. That’s enough reason for me to make time, even if I only cut out thirty minutes here or thirty minutes there.

Check out my books on Amazon.

My latest book, For All the Stones, takes place in a world that is coming to terms with the rising technology and the waning magic. Even though the magic has faded, some are still after the ancient glories of the mages who once ruled the land.

My book, Collected Lives, takes place near the end of the twenty-second century, with vacations and tourism to Earth by off-worlders controlled by major corporations. The largest corporation, Collected Lives, has several enemies. The story follows the events as four people from different portions of Collected Lives’ process are thrown into the middle of a larger problem.

My fantasy, A Map, a Mage, and a Sacrifice, is set in a world with ancient technology where sacrifice of lifeforce brings magical power. The greater the pain and suffering, the greater the magical energy generated. The Forty mages controlling the empire use voluntary sacrifice of the citizens to generate power they use to protect and defend the empire. But their rule may be coming to a close.

Malignance, my third book in my time travel series that began with Resonance and Dissonance, is on Amazon as a kindle and a paperback. That was a fun series to write, and for now, it is completed. I have also placed all three books from that series into one volume titled The Machina of Time.

If you’re looking for a science fiction story, try my book The Promise of Dust, which takes place in a cloud city floating in the atmosphere of Venus. Or Progenitor’s Legacy: Deceit, which takes place many years in the future on a tidally locked world that orbits a red dwarf and has been reached by humanity in their search for the alien progenitors who seeded the galaxy with nano machines.

If a young adult science fiction is more to your liking, check out my series This New Earth, that starts with Demons of a Dead World and Secrets of a Dead World.

If you are looking for a young adult fantasy, check out my book The Threads Unbound.
