An Ongoing Adventure

Good morning and happy Sunday!Good, and bad news to share today. The good news—Overall, I had managed to do, what I had set out to do. I published my first novel. (doing the happy dance, doing the happy dance) Here are a couple of links for those who are interested. The Surrender Game, Kindle version,Continue reading “An Ongoing Adventure”

Choo-Choo

The Surrender Game is almost ready. The train is moving at full speed. I’ve chewed all my fingernails down to the nubs. Stomach’s rolling. I’m staring at the screen, waiting patiently for this pop-up to disappear so I can move on to the next level, or fix what needs to be fixed. It’s been aboutContinue reading “Choo-Choo”

Cover Reveal

This experience has been an absolute blast. I’m having more fun than one person should have. Seeing everything come to visual life, all of everything coming to life, has been a bit surreal and, to be honest, a little wild when I think about it. Here are the two covers. I promised I would displayContinue reading “Cover Reveal”

Battlefield

Friday night. Raining. Just the way I like it. I know it’ll be another early night when I decide to crash. And, once again, I’ll probably be up around 1 a.m. wondering why I’m fully rested. In fact, I could probably put a wager on it. (shrug) I’ll deal with that when it happens. IContinue reading “Battlefield”

Dangerous

Took a personal day today. Slept in a little. Played with the dog. Tidied up the living space. Then, I treated myself to a diner breakfast around brunch time. I had the home to myself and brought the chow back to my comfy spot. Sat on the couch, and gobbled down my morning meal. KickedContinue reading “Dangerous”

Countdown

1:30am. Wide awake. I told Nancy I was going to sprawl out and chill around 8:30 last night and zone out to something on the squawk box, possibly pass out cold, and I suppose that’s what I get for thinking I’d sleep soundly through the entire night. Crash early, wake early. Par for course. MyContinue reading “Countdown”

Lighthouse

I’m not much of a complainer. I like my life. Though never easy, I can say I did ok with what I was given. I make decent lemonade from bitter lemons. I snatched up opportunities as I saw them, harmed no one along the way, and transformed negatives into solid positives. What’s the sense inContinue reading “Lighthouse”

For the People

Having been involved in this blog writing exercise, for as long as I have now, I’ve come to understand some interesting things about the process. Humbling moments. Real, special moments. I started this in mid 2016. No clue what was happening, or what I was doing, and perhaps the same can be said today. WithContinue reading “For the People”

Breaking Point, Part II

I was feeling like a million bucks today. Calm. Satisfied with the days events. I had all my Jobby-job responsibilities completed, ahead of schedule. Was looking forward to the evening at home. Felt productive. Relaxed. Comfortable. That always seems to be the problem, right? Feeling comfortable. Hopped into the car after my shift, anticipating myContinue reading “Breaking Point, Part II”

84 Miles

It was the perfect day for a road trip. Nancy and I have a fondness for historic “antiquely” towns, and Maine has a ton. After the chores and workie-work responsibilities yesterday, I had that itch to escape the home and travel to the coast. Time to be near the water again. Time for another natureContinue reading “84 Miles”
