Making Time to Write

With recent changes in my day job, I’ve struggled to find or make the same amount of writing time as I used to. I’m still writing but at a slower pace. I’ve had to reevaluate what I do with my time and cut out some of the things that waste it.

In some ways, it feels like my protagonist. Everything in his world is changing and he is forced to change his approach. It’s fun to write a science fiction story and make life hard for the protagonist. At the end of the story, the protagonist should be better off. He may not be in a better place, but he will be more experienced, stronger, and ready to face challenges.

I’m doing the same in my life, as I take on more responsibilities in my day job. Some of those responsibilities take up my time away from the office. But writing is important to me. It helps me recenter myself and be ready for the challenges of the days.

Reading and writing is one way to escape the stresses of life, if only for a few minutes. 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.
