16. Hustle

Photo by Lost Co; Quote found on Pinterest

As you know, dear readers, my entrepreneur stuff is my side hustle. One of my teaching jobs starts up tomorrow, and the other the following week. This is my last day of summer, and I’m spending it working on my hustles and helping my husband out with a house project. No matter where you are in life, don’t give up. Hustling now will get you further ahead for the future.

15. My new book, Black Cat Scribbles Vol. 1, is now available for purchase!

So, dear readers, the moment has come for me to finally announce my new horror story collection, Black Cat Scribbles Vol. 1, is officially on the market!

Why horror, you may ask? Well, many years ago I picked up a horror story book, started reading it, and thought I could do better. Thus began my journey into the dark, to bring you back startling stories designed to make you think and wonder if you are truly alone while you read.

I am have some general fiction for sale as well, and even a little poetry, but with Halloween a few months away, why not push the horror to gear you up for the season.

Check it out, and enjoy, dear readers. May the unsettling be with you.

You can find Vol. 1 and the individual stories on:

Vol. 1 is also available on Amazon Kindle:

11. Slow times

Photo by Miguel Bruna; quote by Edwin Louis Cole

Sometimes things are just sloooow.

This is where patience comes in. This is why I have side projects going on with my main experiments. I haven’t found anything to be full steam all the time. Even prepping for my courses doesn’t take every second of the day. So my patience looks like I’m waiting on something, but in reality I am focusing my efforts on another project for the moment so I don’t have to constantly worry and fret over the thing I am waiting on.

Everything takes time. 99.9% of businesses aren’t built overnight. It took Edison over 1,000 times to try to get a light bulb to turn on. I guess the smartest person on the planet could answer questions and come up with solutions, but I bet they weren’t born the smartest person on the planet.

If everything happened right off the bat, more people’s businesses and ideas would be booming, and everyone would have their foot in the game. But reality is, everything takes time, and some people don’t want to wait. Most people love the end results, but they rarely hear about all the money spent and all the failed attempts to get to that end result.

 What are you striving for? What are you waiting on?
