Busy Day

I’ve been busy the last few days. I am updating my 1st book Forever Striking a Crucified Pose. I rushed to self-publish, and I’ve never been satisfied with the way it turned out. Now that I am familiar with formatting after a lot of trials and errors, I am finally happy with the end result. […]

My thoughts on Self-Publishing

I have been writing for as long as I can remember. My first job wasn’t in fast food, but at a newspaper when I was 14 years old. I had an editor, and he was grouchy. I didn’t get paid much, but I loved it. It wasn’t until my late 20’s I began writing fiction. […]

Must keep going

I finished my book The Month of April in less than a month. It helped that I had came up with the project a few years ago and had written a short rough draft. In the process the story did change some from my original concept, for the better. As I’ve mentioned in earlier posts, […]

No post today….

Wow! The laat two days have bsen hectic. I’ve written over 32,000 words in my new project and have spent today editing the first draft. The amazing thing is I have written several stories over the years, and it’s always amazing when you read something, something you have written and re-read and it amazes you. […]

35,000 Words and Still Going: Writing in Progress

The last two days have been for the most part sitting behind the monitor and well, just letting the story write itself. And It’s moving quickly. This is a story that had originated a few years back and I had put it away and just recently came back to it. I opened the file a […]

Inside the Book: Forever Striking a Crucified Pose: Crazy Eights

As in most of the stories in this book, the setting is a place I’m familiar with–Pine Bluff, Arkansas. I grew up there and lived there up until around 1990. I have been back on several occasions to visit friends and family. I don’t think I mention the town within this story. For a small […]

Inside the Book: Forever Striking A Crucified Pose– The Tire

The short story “The Tire”, has gone through many changes. The tire in the playground is an actual tire I played in during the 5th and 6th grade. It wasn‘t a good or bad memory, just a memory. Then, about 15 years ago I was at the school for some function and there it was, […]

Inside the Book: Forever Striking A Crucified Pose… Bypass

Self-publishing my new book Forever Striking a Crucified Pose was a long time in the making. I began some of these stories over 15 years ago. Starting on notebook paper, then a typewriter, and eventually as technology changed upgraded to Windows where there are so many clouds, and drives enabling one to work where you […]

Need to Decompress

I’ve always found it difficult to sleep. Like Alice having a recurring dream of Wonderland, then realizing she’s been there before. As a writer, I often feel this way, the character’s I write, the places, their stories, when I’m awake I talk to them, I follow them, or maybe they are following me. I’m sure […]
