What are you prepared to do?

Waitaminute! Isn’t this post three days late? What happened to Friday? I’m lazy? Well, also, I want to hit the right note for the finale. So, read on for the end to “Creative Week”. A post I affectionately title, “What are you prepared to do?” Time to let you in on a little secret: this… Read more »

I have no idea what I’m writing

In the penultimate post from “Creative Week”, we continue to talk writing. As you will see, however, much of the time, I have no idea what I’m writing. So, let’s set the wayback machine to almost 10 years ago. Gosh! I can hardly believe it’s been that long! But, there it was, “Black Monday”. My… Read more »

The passion remains hidden

  About half a year ago, I came to this blog and posted a bunch of words that might have been a continuation of my young adult trilogy, Jeremy Shuttle Adventures. And then I never mentioned it again. As I begin walking again, thoughts of writing pop up once more, but I am concerned that… Read more »

Time traveling with Facebook

A little over seven years ago, I was preparing to publish my first book. Everything I had read as well as my publisher said I needed a web presence. So, I created this website and also a Facebook page. What was needed was regular content and what I decided on ultimately has me time traveling… Read more »

I think I know what you mean

Okay. I shared with you that I’m jumping back into reading with the help of my favorite author. Jack Vance is a master of descriptive language and exquisite dialog. He also has a gift for diction that employs an expansive vocabulary. I hazard to say it would break any Facebook grammar app. As proud as… Read more »

Back where I belong: Reading!

There is a “problem” with being both retired and dull. Sometimes, I can have too much time and too little to do. After too long streaming and gaming, I’m happy to find myself back where I belong: Reading! Generally, I have “go-to” places among the media for my moods. When I’m morose, it’s Blazing Saddles….

What’s left

So. Apparently, I have begun writing my sequel to Jeremy Shuttle Adventures (currently using the imaginative title of “Jeremy Shuttle Adventures II”). I threw out a couple of intro chapters on the blog the last couple of posts, but a whole additional trilogy, why that’s going to take a lot of plot. Stinks to be… Read more »

What More?

After a sinus or allergy (or both) induced dead day on Friday, I’m back to complete (or is that, “continue”) my “live” writing experiment from last week. For those coming in late, you can catch up by reading that post, which does offer some precious backstory to this post. Otherwise, the short version is that… Read more »

Back from the dead?

Okay, here’s a new experiment for me, “real-time” writing. In this case, my squeaky leather chair (quite annoying) and blog post will serve as surrogates for my chair on a sandy beach and baby laptop. I can’t suggest how successful this may turn out or even how entertaining, but today and tomorrow will be – sort… Read more »

Echoes in the sand

Longtime readers of my blog or bio know that I wrote the majority of my books in a chair on the beach in South Florida (specifically, my current city, Boca Raton). Heck, even my Facebook page shows me as “Writer At the beach”. But it’s been more than three years since I finished my last… Read more »
