I really should stop reading publishing news. Seriously it hovers between annoying and depressing. Am I the only one who is beginning -- no have always thought -- that to be a successful author you must have lots of money to begin? I discovered yet another article where someone who self-published, now has a TV deal … Continue reading Musings 6/17/17
I’m sitting here doing homework, and am doing all right in this course so far – Rhetoric and Critical Thinking – another class I’ll likely ace. Oh yes, A- in my Literature class but was anyone really surprised by that? Not me! Anyway, I’m sitting here thinking of shutting everything down. Just not updating my … Continue reading Mini-Musing 12/8/16
Wow! I haven’t posted here since August? Well it’s kind of understandable. Just the usual mess going on. I did try NanoWriMo 2016 but between school, work and life in general it looks like I’m not going to make it. Besides I just haven’t felt like writing for months. Hell, right now I’m sitting here … Continue reading Musing 11/26/16
I definitely need to go through my hundreds of books more often. I found more authors who’s books I either don’t recall reading (probably because I hadn’t) or books where their were sequels that I… Source: Mini-Musing 8/1/16–More Authors Found!
I definitely need to go through my hundreds of books more often. I found more authors who’s books I either don’t recall reading (probably because I hadn’t) or books where their were sequels that I lost track of. But you know it’s like finding buried treasure. Yes, I have THAT MANY books and my TBR … Continue reading Mini-Musing 8/1/16–More Authors Found!
I thought since my last Musings was about the scarier aspect of the business, I thought I'd do something in contrast. So with this Musing I'm going to discuss one of the best things about this business -- US! Authors I mean. Hell, there wouldn't be a business without us, right? Anyway, I thought maybe … Continue reading Musings 7/10/16: These are a Few of my Favorite…Authors!
So I’m cleaning my office today, despite being on stay-cation. Trust me, it’s messy and needs it. Now last time I did this I mentioned on Facebook that I came across some books I don’t recall purchasing and/or reading. I guess it happens when you have almost 400 books in your office alone and keep … Continue reading Mini-Musing –This is a Scary Business
First off, have a great Memorial Day everyone and remember to take the time to honor the brave men and women who protect our freedoms! I have an important article posted on my Facebook page but here is it again: Memorial Day 2016: In defense of memorials to our military heroes. Read it and look … Continue reading Musing 5/30/16–OK, so I bent the rules a bit.
It’s been way too long since I posted something but I can’t promise that will change in the future. Is anyone reading this blog at all? I think maybe once in a great while I get a comment. Of course I’m always appreciative when that happens. I’ve just been a bit discouraged lately when it’s … Continue reading Musings 5/15/16–Just an Old Fashioned Update
Tomorrow is the first day of spring and that damn groundhog has some serious explaining to do. After a week of wonderfully warm weather we get hit again with freezing temperatures. I have a mountain of gardening catalogs sitting in my office and my desk at work and I can’t do a thing with them. … Continue reading MUSINGS 3/20/16 ~ Writing The Way I See It Part 3: Twitter Pitch Contests.
I know I should be working on my school work right now but I’m tired of dealing with the idiots. I don’t want to not speak my opinion but after awhile you realize there’s no point in continuing. I’m just tired of people stepping on me whenever my opinion doesn’t agree with them. And right … Continue reading Mini-Musings 7/23/15 ~ Wow…just…wow.
