In February 2018, I’m going to be 41. That’s pretty crazy
and almost unbelievable for me, but that’s not the focus of this essay.
I’m here to warn you about turning 40, and at the same time
do a quick sidebar about my own emotional journey this past year.
Let’s backpedal a bit, though. This year I have undergone
physical, emotional, and mental changes.
The physical changes are probably too detailed and personal
to really be comfortable for either of us, so let’s move on to the emotional.
So…I’ve had enough with the insulting memes.
You know the ones.The clever, one or two sentence imageyou
see on your social media, designed to offend one crowd and give a “Hell, yeah!”
I’m not talking about one particular post, because this form
of bullying comes in all forms and against all groups. Yes, bullying. If you’ve
ever posted something like this (and I’m pretty sure I have too),you probably
think that ‘bullying’ is a strong word choice.In that case, let’s take it
apart and discuss.
Hello, faithful blog readers. It’s been a while since I have
posted on here, but a lot is going on.
First, I have finished the manuscript for Surreal 2, and
it’s in the editing/publication process.
Second, I am now working on more sequels, but the details
are coming in a moment.
This entry will be a little different from my usual delightful complaining. I’m participating in a sort of blog-tag with some author friends
of mine. We do this to wake each other up and ask that they step away from the
manuscripts to discuss the technicalities with the world.
Earlier this week, I finished the rough draft for my
first-ever short story, a little tale called “Loralee and The Green,” which
will be released soon from7DS Books(keep checking my blog or the 7DS website
in the next couple months for more information). It’s a psychological thriller
with a dash of horror.
As you may or may not know, in February 2013 I became a
published author with my debut novel, SURREAL ECSTASY, which is very personal
to me. It’s also inspired. That’s the way my brain works – I have to be
inspired to write.
I realize it's been a while since I've posted on my blog. Of course, the absence is due to my writing. I've been really busy with it - it seems I always have 3 pending manuscripts.
I love it that way, though. There are always several stories running through my head at any given moment.
I'm ready to go to sleep, but I thought I'd come back here to put up a link to an important video.
Please allow me to introduce this first. One day, my sons were watching the DVD forTransformers 2
