It’s been about a month right? I need to get back into this thing. So, here I am to try at least. I mean it is national Write a novel month, and I blame them for getting me on this path.
Back in 2016 I sat down with the simple goal of trying to write a simple tale of a dystopian future. After not having written in over 20 years I thought I would have a hard time doing anything, let alone anything solid. Now, I have one book out in the real world, and apparently it isn’t total trash. 5 more have followed and I am on track to finish number 9 this month.
Thing is that first NanoWritmo had me crap out 3 books…. Then I went back to school for a writing degree, now I write on a regular basis. but there are times I slack, cause the motivation just isn’t there. I always take a break after I finish anything substantial, which I feel I deserve, but sometimes I take too long a break…..
I am still in search of a solid (and cheap) editor, because I have a lot of things to throw out there. I also have been doing a lot of reading and research on style, etc and an idea I have about something kind of sweet. One thing I will promise though fall all 5 of my readers, probably more like 2 after the long breaks, I will do a Tues Thurs update at least the rest of the month. I know? Regular updates? WTF am I thinking?
I am going to cheat though. Most of them will be stuff I have written recently and even what i am working on now, cause why not? I mean I’m pretty sure most people don’t come here to see me ramble on about my thoughts. but then again my thoughts are pretty amazing, a legend in my own mind and all.
The memoir might be coming to an Amazon near you soon. Everyone that’s read it seems to like it, so why not let it out into the wild? Also I didn’t win the contest that I entered it into, so might as well. I don’t mind losing, the thing is it was for veterans of book length work. The 2 that did win had like 8 years in the service total……..
Not that I’m saying their work was bad or anything, but I dunno I just have a different view of vets that never went to the shit zones. Not that we’re overly special, just that we know more, beyond the violence. It’s about the bonds and the actual mindset of those that go through the things we did, but I digress.
So, that’s it for this ramble…….
