My Writing This Week

Here I am at the end of another busy week. It has been a great week for my writing. I’ve had a few days where I was able to write over four thousand words on my work in progress. It’s now nearing one hundred twenty thousand words. I plan to have that one ready forContinue reading “My Writing This Week”

Finding Time Versus Making Time

Writing is something I really enjoy. As I have stated in previous posts, I enjoy the release from my stressful day job. I also enjoy reading. It’s nice to be able to slip away from my stressful life even if just for a moment. I used to say I wasn’t writing or reading as muchContinue reading “Finding Time Versus Making Time”

How Many People are Better for Knowing You?

As I have been working on my latest work in progress, a fantasy story with several key characters, I’ve found myself thinking a lot about their relationships. My protagonists are from different sides of the same problem. As each of them reacts and interacts with the others it brings a depth to the story. Granted,Continue reading “How Many People are Better for Knowing You?”

The End of A Busy Yet Productive Week

This week my time travel book, Resonance, became available on Amazon. I tried something different with it and set it up as a preorder. That seems to have helped me get a few more sales. I’ve also got the paperback version available. Last week I wrote about stress, and that was good, it helped meContinue reading “The End of A Busy Yet Productive Week”

How do I Deal With Stress?

During this week, my stresses have been job-related expectations that are almost unrealistic. My stress level and those of my coworkers was high as we worked toContinue reading “How do I Deal With Stress?”

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”

Do we define ourselves by our limitations?

We’re all different. Each one of us has things we do well and things we don’t. That’s what makes us unique. But do we sometimes hide behind what we see as our limitations? When I work on characters for a science fiction or fantasy story, I sometimes start out by listing their attributes. I startContinue reading “Do we define ourselves by our limitations?”

Sometimes, We All Need an Escape

Life can be stressful at times. We’ve all seen it through the last year and even into this year. When that stress gest overwhelming, we all need an escape. We all need a way to distract ourselves from the stresses of life we can’t change. Some of my favorite escapes are good stories. Both theContinue reading “Sometimes, We All Need an Escape”

My Progress on My Next Book

I’m reading through my time travel book one more time before I pass it on to my beta readers. I finished writing it this last week, and at 130,000 words it is one of the longer books I have written. I plan to have it ready for Amazon Kindle by the end of March. LikeContinue reading “My Progress on My Next Book”
