I had a fascinating experience today in the way of a fantastic leap of personal growth. First, we need to step back to sometime around 1995. Among a course of other things going on in my life, I was returning to attending writers conferences which I hadn't been able to do while I was going … Continue reading Okay, wow!
I'm writing this as it's about time for me to turn in for the night. I can't believe the day whooshed by so quickly. I've still been editing The Missing Thread all day, save for writing some new words for Palladium. I'm hoping tomorrow I can finish the edits, prepare the character list, and update … Continue reading Me, hopeless?
I finished the 8th Loki adventure today, and then I cried. I should have finished the story yesterday. The end was in sight. I knew where I was going and what needed to be done, but I needed to go shopping. After five hours of driving around town to get all my shopping in as … Continue reading Today of all days
In a recent blog post, I mentioned that I didn't learn to speak until I was three. I probably knew this and forgotten. I remember my mother telling me that she had waited forever for me to talk and once I did I never shut up. But for me, obviously because I'm a late bloomer … Continue reading Always Knew
Trust the process - an affirmation for telling stories even when the path doesn't make sense.
I hope you enjoyed chapter 1 last week. It's been interesting working on Cirvel's story, especially since so many auxiliary stories feed off of the either the character or aspects of the story.

It was during this one summer when I was about 14 or so. I'd found out about a contest for teen … Continue reading The death of romance
I suspect this is the end of the line for this story. Sorry, folks, but the train stops here. I just don't have any more for this story at the moment, nor have I felt like working on it. I suspect it's in a cooling off period. There must be something coming. On the bright … Continue reading Dragons of Wellsdeep – Chapter 23
This is now the fifth time I've started this blog post. The writing is not coming easily today and emotions are getting in the way. I wish to send my thoughts to Stan Lee's family and friends. While I never actually had the chance to meet him, my son ran into him several times at … Continue reading Glad to be a creator
I can't believe we're almost halfway through November now. When did that happen? I've been reviewing where I'm at and all I accomplished (or didn't) this year. It feels strange to not have my next publication date at least in mind -- the calendar right now is barren, at least in that aspect. I do … Continue reading Progress – November 12, 2018
