**Cue the Rocky music** I was down 5,700 words last night when I went to bed. I've written that much in a day before. I think my highest word count for non-fiction is 13,000 words in a day, but yes, that was 15 hours of straight writing. Someday, I might turn those words into a … Continue reading Making a comeback
I made the trip to Boise today to visit with my writer friend, Merri Halma, who I'm narrating the first book in her Indigo Travelers series. We had a preliminary visit to start getting her setup for putting her audiobook up and discussing the business of writing. I had fun. I hope she did too. … Continue reading Back from Boise
The plan to get Temmy to sleep last night worked. With the exception that I had to hold her all night. If I rolled over, she came to the other side and bugged me until I let her cuddle next to me, usually with her head on my arm. Whatever helps us both sleep, right? … Continue reading Back in the running
Because you will choose how you define 2020 and your life.
Here we are, halfway through the first month of the last quarter of 2018. I can't believe this year is rapidly coming to an end. I was looking at my projects this weekend.

I just can't understand why anyone would want to be "normal" or "average." What is that anyway? Who makes the benchmark on an ordinary, average life? Is … Continue reading Rockin’ Life page 5 has been posted
This was once again a reminder for me. Show up! You must show up for things that you want to do. You have to. If you want to do something but aren't showing up to do it, then you are just dreaming. Are you dreaming and not doing? Do you realize that if you're dreaming, … Continue reading Show up!
Everyone faces challenges of one sort or another. The highs and lows of life may erupt within a day. But you always have the ability to "make a wish." You can always desire a change, prefer that things were different. But it doesn't stop there. Action, movement, going forward needs to proceed the wish. … Continue reading Make a Wish
I'm currently sitting at Barnes and Noble reading the new issue of ImageFX. What lovely art they have in this issue. Something interesting that has caught my eye is the Editors's Letter. Editor Claire Howlett writes about doing what you love in this issue. She also mentions to readers that might find themselves letting lack … Continue reading Who’s breaking eggs now?
I've been feeling a little guilty since my last post. After all, who am I to shoot down someone's dream? I still think I was mostly right. Feel free to disagree if you want. Let's say, however, that I wanted to get a painting into the Louvre or the Smithsonian. Straight up, let me as … Continue reading Dreamers, dream!
