Life is Hard…Read.

This might cause me to lose points with some people, but I write because the world needs to be entertained. Not scolded.

I looked at how their characters talked to each other but sadly I didn't find the answers... Continue Reading →

The First Full Week

Okay. A week and two days. Well it’s been 2021 for a whole week. How’s everyone doing? I’m not doing too bad. I came into this year with a solid plan and so far I’m hitting all my goals. The middle of the week was kinda rough. I didn’t get good sleep. I went to... Continue Reading →

Outlining my book

Keeping the story on track When I started my book, Deadlock, I just sat down and started writing. After juggling it around in my head for almost twenty years I thought I knew the whole story. Was I wrong. I had the first couple of chapters down when I realized I was missing some things.... Continue Reading →
