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 »

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 »

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 »

To all things an ending

Six and a half years. It’s not a lot, but it might be more than other people get. Regardless, it’s all the time I had and despite some regrets and mistakes along the way, it’s something I can make peace with. Amazon has stopped offering my paperbacks for sale. Oh, copies are still available through… Read more »

Lonely is the blog

I’m going to make this “Return to Writing Week” here on the JMD blog. It’ll be a series of writing-related posts and maybe, perhaps, even a bit of writing. I’ll start off with this here blog. Almost simultaneous to me finishing my first book, I set up a website to help publicize my writing and… Read more »

Will wonders never cease?

Gee, I sure hope not! The final day of shared self-reflection on my (now willing to admit) interesting life. We pick up from where we were yesterday, fired at the nadir of the financial crisis of 2009. Nobody wants me There I was, just shy of 50 years old and fired (let go, laid off,… Read more »

Uncovering the story

Trying to squeeze in a post between yesterday’s full day take-niece-for-procedure (everything’s fine, just checking off a box) and today’s spring training adventure up the coast (out the door in a couple of hours). As my beloved state fights to return to the embracing (and snowbird-chasing) temperatures I adore, I get ever closer to a… Read more »

Between me and beauty…ants!

Gosh knows I’ve posted about ants; heck, I’ve even written about ants! So, you’ve gotta know by now I have great affection for the little critters (well, except for the several hundred tiny sugar ants that parade through my kitchen every year or so). However, they are really causing me problems these days. More specifically,… Read more »

They’re around here somewhere

Normally, I don’t answer the phone when the caller isn’t identified and I don’t recognize the number. But, filled with the good spirit of the holidays and an eerie sense of familiarity, I did pick up on a local call yesterday. It was one of those, “I thought I recognized that number…” moments, as it turned out… Read more »

To 3 or not to 3

To continue our conversation on my returning to the Jeremy Shuttle Adventures to tell more tales of Jeremy, Natalie and the gang, we’ll need to revisit the past again to explain the future. The central idea behind my creation of What if? was that of a young, imaginative boy finding a sketchbook that allowed all… Read more »
