Writing hurdles

My biggest hurdle with writing is I will type a sentence and put the wrong word down; do you sea what I mean? I try to edit things carefully before I publish or send out emails, but things still slip through the cracks. What’s your biggest issue with your passion?

Summer work week

What does a typical work week look like for you? For me, since I am a teacher, my summer workweeks shift dramatically from what I do during the school year. More time for hustles and hobbies, but always working.

Jumping on the Trampoline: re-release

I’m re-releasing my first published book, Jumping on the Trampoline. Due to a scandal it had slipped through the cracks and fallen into oblivion. Now, for the first time ever, it is available as an ebook.

God is a Mob Boss: new release

What do you think about religion, about God?
There are so many issues that are glossed over, or not addressed, or sometimes addressed inappropriately.
Mental Illness; abortion; suicide; loneliness; the point of it all.
I’ve taken what I have learned over the years, coupled that with my life experiences, and written a book, God is a Mob Boss, about these taboo issues. Because “You’re going to hell,” is not the way to reach people.

Nerd Alert

Broke, but want to start your business? Ever considered using Microsoft Office to make graphics and perfect documents? That’s how I started out. I have added more tools to my arsenal since those early days, like PhotoShop and GIMP, but Office still is at the core of my operations: after all, I am a writer.

Dark Twists and Surreal Turns: new book!

I don’t know about you, but I have been super busy this quarantine. After I work on my classes all day, recording lectures and making online assignments, and of course, online meetings, I wind down by working on my writing biz. I try to write a blog a day, and do a little writing on […]

92. Writing Update

I’ve got some new stories in the works. So this week is my high school’s spring break, and like so many other schools in Texas, we are extending our break out. Which means lots of writing time! One is completely written and is in the polishing stage. It will be a novella instead of a […]

79. The art of horror writing

One of the things I like about writing horror is the complexity. It plays on so many emotions and viewpoints, rather than just ahhh! The monster killed again! Blood and gore everywhere! What does that monster represent? How does it impact the reader’s life? Some of the best horror I’ve read wove a path of […]

22. A little touch up

When I was doing freelance writing more often, I came across some bad writers. People actually sent me stuff that looked like it went through a grammar shredding machine. Those projects took a lot longer to polish and get back on track. Some people had better grammar and sentence structure skills, and I could put […]

9. Relaxing habit

One of the things that is relaxing to me is writing. I almost pursued a career in creative writing, and even wrote a fiction book a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. I have a horror story collection that I never published. I also have a longer novel that collects dust on […]
