Getting Back on Track

Starting over after you’ve lost your way. How my current situation feels. How many of us have lost our motivation? I’ve been unmotivated, but after a few days fighting through it I was back on track. My engine just needed a little rest. Now how many of us have gone completely off track? The engine... 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.

Dialing it in…slowly.

I’m trying to find my niche for this blog. I’m a huge comic book fan. The book I wrote(it’s with the editor as of this writing) was conceived as an idea for a comic book. It’s safe to say comics have been a major influence on my life. I’ve been reading a lot of “how-to”... Continue Reading →

Dismissing your fan base

This could cause me to lose followers (not that I have many now) but being a writer who leans left is becoming something of a cliche. As of this writing I have over 1200 followers and the majority identify as leftist. You can’t tell me there are no conservative sci fi writers out there. I’m... Continue Reading →
