We All Need a Vacation, or an Escape

This week, my post is later than usual. I’ve been on vacation from my day job this week and it has been great. Getting away from my day job, and its stress has helped. Sometimes, physically getting away from my day job stress helps. I’ve spent part of the week getting together with extended familyContinue reading “We All Need a Vacation, or an Escape”

Patience. Sometimes it’s All We Need.

Amid all the other challenges this week, I’ve been thinking a bit about patience. So many tasks from my full time job have pulled at me, that I haven’t written as many pages as I hoped. I have still written every day this week. Writing a book takes patience just like most other things inContinue reading “Patience. Sometimes it’s All We Need.”

Tackling Stress in Bite-Sized Chunks

Another week behind me. The stress and the many tasks are still there in my day job. Sometimes, there is so much that needs to be done, it gets pretty overwhelming. It doesn’t seem like I’ll ever finish it all. I feel the same way about some of my writing goals, only my goals areContinue reading “Tackling Stress in Bite-Sized Chunks”

People Are Awesome in Their Own Ways

This has been another extremely busy week for me in my day job. While the stress is still there, I have still found time to write my book. I’m just past 50,000 words, so not quite half way through my draft of my work in progress, Dissonance. As I have been working on that book,Continue reading “People Are Awesome in Their Own Ways”

Ever Wonder Why People Do What They Do?

My last few posts have been about how I deal with the stress in my life. As I manage my stress, it helps me to stay focused, both at work and on my writing projects. But at the end of the day, we all need distractions. Reading and writing stories are two of my favoriteContinue reading “Ever Wonder Why People Do What They Do?”

Writing About Time Travel

Here I am at the end of another week. The stress levels in my day job have not dropped off, in fact, they have increased with more projects needed. I sometimes wish I could time travel. Not so that I could bypass the stress so much as possibly giving myself more time or chances toContinue reading “Writing About Time Travel”

Still Writing Away my Stress

Today, I am excited, even though it has been a stressful week. Due to clicking the wrong button in Amazon as I set up my paperback version of A Map, a Mage, and a Sacrifice, my paperback version is live and I moved up the release date of the ebook version to this Saturday. ItContinue reading “Still Writing Away my Stress”

Writing and Reading to Escape Stress

Life is full of stresses, both big and small. Although sometimes similar, the stresses I face are different than yours. Like I’ve said before, one of my favorite ways to step away from stresses is reading and writing stories. Being able to mentally step away from my current stress of each day, whether from myContinue reading “Writing and Reading to Escape Stress”

Not Stressing The Small Things

It’s to see how many pages people are reading of my time travel book Resonance on Kindle Unlimited. Every day more pages are read. For September, I’m working on a sequel to it, to explore the characters a little more. I’m almost completed with my outline and will start writing by the middle of nextContinue reading “Not Stressing The Small Things”

Good Things Can Still Happen

The world is definitely different than it was just over a year ago. Our new normal is something I never imagined. Wearing masks and social distancing seem like they might never go away, but I hope we don’t let them give us an excuse to be unfriendly. Just this week, I’ve watched as people IContinue reading “Good Things Can Still Happen”
