Weekly Update: April 23, 2016

It's early Saturday morning and the sun hasn't even come up. My Han Solo mug is full of coffee as I write this brief update of the week's activities. I'll just tell you now - this week was all Star Runners all the time for me! Star Runners 4 = 80,000 words This update is going to be on the short side. As anyone who knows me can agree, I have tunnel vision when I get this close to the end of a book. Once I finish, I spend most of my time apologizing to my friends and family for being a little out of touch. I'm entering the third and final act of the story. It's completely engrossing my mind and taking up most of my time not spent doing other things (exercise, sleep, paying bills, etc.). My pr

Weekly Update April 15

Does it seem strange to anyone that it's already April 15? Full disclosure here: I had to double-check the calendar when I typed the title of this weekly update. Before I dive into the full update, I wanted to wish everyone a happy Friday. A special thank you to all the encouragement I've received via Twitter, Facebook and email. I appreciate it so much. Go out enjoy the weekend! Stay Frosty! I thought I would share with all of you something that happened this week. Someone asked me if I could have one wish granted, what would it be? Well, my first wish was to wish for an infinite supply of more wishes. When I was told that wasn't fair, I told them I wanted to fly in a Trident. I received a

Weekly Update: April 8, 2016

Baseball season has started so I haven't written one word this week - too busy watching games to have time for typing. Not true at all. The opening sentence is a terrible lie. If I ever write anything like this here, I want you to know the website has been hacked. Whether or not I share everything I write, I still write every day. This week was no different at all. I have spent my time writing one book and editing another. It's been a great deal of work, but also very fun! Writing Work is proceeding on Star Runners 4. I have not decided on a title, but I will be sure to let you know. I have had one buzzing around my head that sounds better than "Star Runners 4" (lame), but I usually don't de

Music goes with writing like ...

I've always thought music went with storytelling like peanut butter went with jelly. This thought goes way back to my childhood. When my brother and I carried out grand battles with G.I. Joe, both of us would make our own soundtrack to increase the drama in our "battles." As I got older, I realized not only was music important for the imagination, but it was also a crucial part of movies. When I was in middle school, I saw a special on PBS where a group was recognizing the great composer, John Williams. His music is heard in everything from major motion pictures to commercials to bands at football games. This program I watched was fantastic because it showed an entire scene of "Jaws" without

Weekly Update: April 1, 2016

I'll go ahead and let you know right now--there is no April Fools joke in this post. My father loves April Fools and is the best jokester I know. He once told my mother first thing in the morning that her car had rolled down the hill during the night because she forgot to put the emergency brake on when she parked it the night before. She ran out into the driveway and saw the car just sitting there. There were countless more over the years, and I think of them every time April 1 rolls around. I will keep the update short this week. I managed to get the first draft of Star Runners up to nearly 40,000 words this week. I've got a busy weekend coming up with family, so I am writing this update o
