Gathering Steam

Hello everyone! Not much of an update today. I've gotten a few hundred words written, probably about a hundred or a little less in the Colliding Empires. I've gotten a few paragraphs written on a possible scifi novel and a novella that I had been working on.

I've been listening to Nathan Lowell's TRADER TALES. I always come back to this series. I love Ishmael's voice in that series, and I'm really looking forward to the next installment SEEKERS and another branch in that universe SMUGGLERS. I've taken a break to listening to Steven Erikson's Malazan books and have gone back to some podcasts:  The Dead Robots' Society, StarTalk Radio, Android Central, and Magic the Amateuring.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and ...

Until the morrow and may your journey be meaningful!

Check Ins

Good morning weekend! Not much to report on the writing front. The freebies and countdown deals on Amazon should still be running. Feel free to head over there and sample my work.

On the personal front, the day job is going well and is moving forward smoothly. On the home front, my little girls' personalities continue to blossom, and I enjoy every day with them.

All right...on to the writing stuff. Not much is happening here. I still haven't forced myself to stay up late or to motivate myself toward writing in the mornings yet. However, I am doing some basic new story construction on a possible novel. I'm not going to be very specific like I have in the past. Most of those stories never came to fruition. I have done a little writing on a few short story/novella WIP projects that I have been working on for a while. I did a little writing on the next Colliding Empires story. It's the first of the last five stories. I probably won't get much done in the way of writing today, but I'm hoping to get at least 1K done between today and tomorrow.

Until the morrow and may your journey be meaningful!

Contemplations abound lately, I seem to be doing a lot of thinking about my career. Yesterday was a good day at the day job. I felt more relaxed and that carried over to home. I didn't get any writing done, but I did start some Kindle Count Down ads and freebies for the next five days or so. This is obviously going to be a short post, but I want to get into the habit of posting more regularly. So, if you'd like a discount or free copy of any of my works, just head to Amazon and get a copy. Everything is either discounted or free, so enjoy!

Until the morrow and may your journey be meaningful!

A Bit of Reevaluation

I know it's been a while since my last post, but I figured I might as well throw out some updates. Anyone who has been following along should probably want to know that the first five short stories of the Colliding Empires have been released into a single file called "Volume 1."

Another thing that is probably the most notable is the fact that I haven't written a post since back in December. I've quite noticeably been derailed in both my blogging and my writing. I haven't done much writing at all. I apologize for that, but it is also one of my cycles that I definitely need to change.

The second, and most recent development, is that I've decided to remove myself from Twitter and delete my Facebook page. I felt that most of what was being put out to the internet on those media channels were shameless self-promotion. That isn't really what I wanted those to become. I don't like the idea of hitting people over the head with that message. And, to be quite honest, Twitter was something that I didn't really use in a meaningful way. I'll be sticking to Google+ and my regular Facebook page. I'm going to try and stick with conversations instead of BUY MY BOOKS and BUY THESE OTHER PEOPLES' BOOKS. I was definitely guilty of that in just about all of my author social media content. I'm relaxing it a bit and going to try and stick to meaningful interactions. So, I hope you enjoy the blog, books, and all other things. I might be trying to figure out podcasting if I ever find a routine that works with two small children and the need for sleep.

Until the morrow and may your journey be meaningful.
