To paraphrase Stephen Crane: In the desert, I met-a-mo'pho. Anyway. That sure took a long time. Sure, I was re-thinking and reconsidering my entire approach to a writing career and everything that goes within and without it, but wow, what a long quiet spell. I had planned that 2017 would be my most productive year … Continue reading In The Desert
It’s been quiet here, but I haven’t been quiet. Here’s what’s been going on. I’ll try to be brief. Shortly after my last post, two things rocked my world. First, I saw an article that distilled the common aspects of mega-successful authors. Details will come later, but the result of the article was my thinking: … Continue reading Metamorphosis
Hey, wow---a shiny thing. Friday There are books that I have written but not published. For a long time, I've thought of making them public. This week, I came up with a really good reason to publish them and more like them, and I could do it soon. It would mean some changes to the … Continue reading WIP: Friday Spinning Wheels
Didn't get on schedule, but got close. Thursday Better day. Met my steps and almost my words. I'm thinking that I don't like these daily posts. I like posting the words and steps, but I think there's probably a better way to do it. I might switch to making the WIP posts every few days. … Continue reading WIP: Good Thursday
Another day trying to get on schedule. Wednesday I didn't get on the schedule I'd like to, but I did get some good work done. I spent a big chunk of time cycling through my vampires book, confirming details, adding flavor, whatnot, then another chunk of time putting in new words, which was good. This … Continue reading WIP: Cycling Wednesday
Still moving up. Tuesday Another day of writing. Continued to get projects revved up. Wrote words and walked steps. I'm keeping this short because I'm working to do these posts in the evening; early to bed and early to rise and all that. More tomorrow.
Here we go. Monday The day started with walking my daughter to school, which helped me get most of my 10K steps in. During the day I worked to get organized and moving forward, despite some annoying interruptions. A Brief Detour During much of the first part of the day, I worked to evaluate a … Continue reading WIP: First Good Monday
Sundays have been the worst. This is the last one. Sunday It went more or less as always: Up late, some time with my daughter, some time with my parents, grocery shopping, running a poker tournament, home late. The answer, of course, is to get up early and get some good work in. Yes.
It was a typical Saturday. That's the problem. Saturday Woke late. Partial morning routine. Family stuff. Had to run a poker tournament. Came back wiped out. Rested. Got a little work done late, but should have just slept. Tomorrow will be a little better, and Monday and the rest of the week will rock. Next … Continue reading WIP: Last Bad Saturday
That guy sure is a good con man. 15% of the country can't see it. At all. Friday Morning routine. Daughter to school. Lots of good work before being distracted. Distraction of the day decade Today, of course, one of the worst possible things happened. The wealthiest 1% managed to seize illegitimate control of my … Continue reading WIP: Hard To Work
