Please Help Me, I'm Falling In Love with the Falls!

One of the things I'm working on is an e-book that has lots of photos and links of my adventures in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The last trip I made to the Tahquamenon Falls, I had a chance to talk to a DNR (Department of Natural Resources) officer about the falls and some history of the area.... Sign in to see full entry.

Killers, Fathers, And Re-Writes

In my 'super-duper-writing book,' already in progress, I'm going to mention this place for a couple reasons. The first to be breathe a little more life in here - new members equals more stuff.

The Opening Salvo

This is the opening of my 'book' on writing. 'Write what you know!' This common saying about writing is from "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" by Mark Twain. Back when Twain was writing, that was a valid point. If you never traveled far from the family farm or... Sign in to see full entry.

Arrogance, Thy Name is V!

I'm slowly getting back into the habit of writing on a daily basis again. I never really stopped, but due to circumstances, I was only able to write 250 to 500 words a day, and not on a story arc, but just random notes. Of course, I'm making use of those notes. I've moved along fairly well on my... Sign in to see full entry.

A Book Review

Due to the amount of traveling I knew I was going to do, I bought the Kindle version of " How to Write Short Stories And Use Them to Further Your Writing Career," by James Scott Bell. The price was $3.99 while the paperback is priced at $11.99. I thought it to be a tad over priced, but that seems... Sign in to see full entry.

The Things You Do For Love

My corner of the world has been going by at whirl wind speed, but yet, story ideas keep coming to mind. I was talking with someone about something when he said to me, " words are terms of art."

Johnny Robot Rockets!

I'm expecting Audible to finally announce that "Johnny Robot" is on the market. The audio book is only about 50 minutes, but if it sells anywhere near as well as the paperback and e-book have sold, I'll be very happy. The e-book made it all the way to #22 in the children's stories for about four... Sign in to see full entry.

People ask me all the time, "Where do you get your ideas?" Actually, this is part of my book on writing, but allow me to explain a new story idea that was just given to me. I was working on a writing project when Johnny, he of fame and fortune of two or three books of mine now, came into see me. "I... Sign in to see full entry.
